U.S. film critics declared themselves to be totally flabbergasted . . .

. . . that Warner Bros. would spend even one Red Cent on a movie project as implausible, trite, and contrived as this Teenie-Bopper RomCom, EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING. However, the paltry imaginations of such pundits cannot see the Hawaiian coconuts hanging in EVERYTHING's Mexican trees. Substituting Mexico as a filming location for the Young Adult Bodice-Ripper paperback's Hawaii setting is just one of countless changes Warner makes to get their True Meaning across to America's Youth in the most Cost-Effective Way possible. Maddie's Evil Mom represents the Fat Cat Rich People Party Trumpsters, lying to Modern Millenials and U.S. kids such as Maddie that ObamaCare is Bad. Like Maddie's Mom, these Corrupt Capitalist Schemers want to keep the U.S. population in a Fake News Bubble, telling us that We Can't Handle the Truth, and that ANY contact with Reality will be FATAL to our weak sensibilities. Warner Bros. uses Ollie to represent the only hope for We True Blue Patriotic Loyal Average Normal Union Label Americans: A Progressive Labor Party. Warner warns us that WE have to choose whether to live Under the Thumb of Evil Lying Trumpsters such as Maddie's Mom, or escape to the Clear Light of a New Day under a Progressive Sun.

It's no coincidence that the recent years of the world cinema, many directors are somewhat inclined toward the production of emotional film genre (love/romantic) stimulates the psychology of teenager -- because they don't have much experience in life marriage or family. The first time I saw this poster I thought of Alessia Cara play the role of main character -- the girl (Maddy) look like exactly. Does anyone else think like me (?!). That's a joke -- no need to pay attention. Let's-get-back to the point by now! At the beginning of the story we can see Maddy's appearance - a person who has a disease (don't want to say is terminally ill) that thing interferes with her social interaction. The girl is coming to the most important stage of her life but she is unfortunately unlucky when she has a terrible disease. Of course, we can see people are so "small" in life when they are completely helpless, can't prevent bad things its from happening to themselves or save themselves -- it seems like a game (win/lose). Perhaps fate has put two strangers together so closer when Olly, a neighbor boy meets Maddy -- two lives, two different fate but with the same aspirations of life: for a love surpasses all.. I think the director may have been successful in building this detail -- making viewers feel moved and shocked when they realized: "In the face of the temptation, the difficulty of life can they find their real lover?!". The story doesn't seem to end there, and again, the film starts (on screen) Maddy sees that Olly's father attacked him at the same time that Pauline realized that Maddy was near Olly, and fired on Carla. "A beautiful love but is prevented by the cruelty of human?" -- We can't possibly not see that thing through the film! Notable when Maddy, she decides to risk her health to realize her dreams of interaction and experience in the outside world, and runs away to Hawaii with Olly, and they "interact" with each other. Unfortunately, for Maddy, she was becomes ill and is paralyzed. Obviously, we can't deny that thing! Because its provide the fact: its has brought to the truth that everyone is shocked when the desire for human life is so intense, in the face of difficulties and they don't surrender! Not long after, the illness once again had a profound effect on Maddy, and she realized how long she could not live (!). Maybe, the audience will ask yourself -- and of course it will always have the answer through the film! A teen girl with an aspiration desire to conquer life (as Maddy) because of a disease that can make she become hopeless until she realizes another shocking truth (not convenient when it comes to, watch-the-movie and you know how it feels!). After that event, Maddy with obsessive memories decides to move to New York and become husband and wife (Happy Ending) -- This is the valuable time for you relax some emotions! The viewer may surprise with the details in the middle of the movie, but they may be "feel so down" at the end of the movie (because the story lines its a bit fast) if any one of someone not concentrate on watching the movie. As a result, they will feel its boring and slightly "unattractive". This movie is not rated high **Look IMDb ratings before you reading this lines!** My opinion: I really like it because it contains a lot of elements of the human emotions (teenagers should see) -- they will be able to experience a lot of life experiences through this film, the precious things they are looking from a long time...

Despite flaws and all' you'll like it!

Virtually every single element in "Everything, Everything" rings false and manipulative — and that's BEFORE we get to a Big Reveal so contrived, so insanely implausible, so monstrously tone-deaf, we can see the entire movie plunging off a cliff, landing with a sickening thud in the Land of the Not-the-best Movies of the Year. The movie has pure intentions. The filmmakers and the cast set out to make a sweet, teen-friendly romance based on the young adult novel by Nicola Yoon. Yet the story is spun in such a way we're constantly thinking, "OK, wait a minute…" and the characters are thinly drawn, and their reactions to various developments are wildly out of tune with what we would expect from actual human beings in those situations. The story is told from the point of view of 18-year-old Maddie who hasn't been out of the house since she was an infant because she has a rare form of an autoimmune disease. Mere exposure to the outside air could literally kill her. So wait a minute. If that's the case, why can't Maddie have other visitors? Why has she been allowed just the one nurse and the one friend for nearly 18 years? We know Maddie's father and brother were killed in a car crash just after Maddie was born, but doesn't Maddie have any other family that would want to visit? If Maddie has survived hundreds of visits from Nurse Carla and Rosa, why wouldn't her mother allow the girl to have other human interaction? What's the deal, Mom? Director Stella Meghie tries to expand the universe of the film by placing some of the text and phone conversations in stylised physical settings such as a library and a diner. (An astronaut of Maddie's imagination usually lurks nearby, filing books or trying to sip a milkshake. Don't ask.) Stenberg and Robinson have OK chemistry as the young couple, but their dialogue often sounds overly scripted, and once they're actually in the same room together, it's hardly Romeo and Juliet on the Passion Meter. "Everything, Everything" goes from bland to terrible in the sequences that should pack the most dramatic punch. Once Maddie risks all by venturing into the outside world, she seems disoriented and overwhelmed for all of about 15 minutes — and then she just acts like a normal teenager, perusing the racks in a clothing store, frolicking on the beach, singing to jams in the car. You'd think the experience of being outside for the first time in her conscious life would be a little more, um, impact-full? Even before things start to fall apart, the film is too dreamily slow-paced for its own good, thereby allowing too much time for viewers to question minor details they might not have noticed were they fully engaged with the narrative. (How did Maddy, who hasn't left her house in 18 years, acquire the photo ID she'd need to board a plane? And how does she intend to pay what must be a humongous credit card bill?) On the other hand, viewers who actually prefer their romantic dramas to be dreamily slow-paced likely will be willing to ignore such minutiae and simply go with the flow. Indeed, they may even shrug off the third-act reveal as a minor speed bump on the road toward a crowd-pleasing resolution.

A Beautiful Young Interracial Love story with a Twist

21 May 2017: I have been a fan of talented young Biracial actress, Amandla Stenberg since seeing her in the film "Colombiana" 2011 and then I met her with her mother in June 2014 at the Mixed race Multiracial festival in Los Angeles. She is very nice and charming. I see and support All Interracial Love stories between men and women such as "The Lovings", "Something New", "Guess Who", "Zebra Head" and my all time favorite, "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" 1967. Anyhoo, "Everything~Everything" is a beautiful young Interracial Love story, a film for all ages from teens to seniors. At first is was sad that a young girl whose whole adult life is locked inside of her home believing that if she steps outside in the real world, she could die. A note to point out is that I like the fact that Maddie's parents in the family photo is also exactly like Amandla's real life parents. Prior to seeing the family photo, I assumed that she was just playing a young African American girl, but not Biracial. Then comes in her young prince charming actor, Nick Robinson as Olly who lives in the home across from her. The slow contact between them build to what we are all hoping for is that they will get to at some point actually see each other face to face and thanks to Mexican telenovela {soap opera} actress, Ana de Reguera that I watched in the Mexican soap opera "Gitanas" 2004, the young lovers finally meet face to face much to the chagrin anger of Maddie's mother when she finds out. After e-mailing, texting and meeting in their windows, Ana as Carla finally lets Olly inside to meet Maddie. There is an instant sweet innocent attraction between the two of them (sort of like Brooke Shield first encounter in the film "Blue Lagoon" many years ago. Knowing that she could die anytime, I like that she realizes that being locked up in a prison of her home is Not really living at all and she is willing to risk it all for the chance to go outside with Olly and take the risk of going as far as Hawaii, knowing that her mother who loves her and only has her best interest at heart, but what later appears to have been a lie to keep her daughter locked inside for fear of losing her. Maddie risk it all to experience Love of life and her first true love experience. In the words of Andy Dufrasne "Get Busy Living or Get Busy Dying." Maddie gets busy living. I love when he tells her that he loves her, but her reply to him sort of reminds me of the words on Holy Bible, "God loved us before we were formed in our mothers womb." She says, I loved you before I knew you. That is really beautiful. The love scene in Hawaii is beautiful, tastefully done and does not seem forced. In fact, she is the more aggressive person between them. We, the audience knew that at some point a big scare has to happen to find out if she would live or die and that happens to her while she is in Hawaii. Thanks to the nurse in Hawaii finally making young Maddie realize that she does Not have a rare illness at all, but her mom has been lying to her to keep her locked inside out of fear of losing her only because of a allergy or something that she has, but not a rare illness that will kill her. We also find out that Maddie makes Olly happy not only because he loves her, but also it give him a chance to escape his abusive father who beats him and his mother, but that is Not really shown much here. Only one exterior scene show a physical confrontation between Olly and dad. I liked a lot of things about this film. 1. A good film that never mentions the racial differences between the two. Just two people falling in love. True Love sees No skin color and that is the way it should be. 2. When we finally see the love scene with them in Hawaii, it is very nice and tastefully done, no degrading women with upper body or lower body nudity. 3. No profanity. 4. No violence on women or anyone. On a scale of 1-10, I give it a 9 and two thumbs up.

Spectacular Movie... Especially if you've read the book

I recently went and saw Everything, Everything with a few of my friends. They had not read the book before hand, but I had. I was ready to point out all the differences between the two. Come on, it's a YA adaption, when doesn't it have a few major changes? However, I couldn't find anything. Sure there were a few minor changes, but nothing super important; Nick Robinson, Amandla Stenberg, and the rest of the cast were phenomenal. Me and all my friends loved it.
