Adapted from the bestselling novel by author John Green, PAPER TOWNS is a coming-of-age story centering on Quentin and his enigmatic neighbor Margo, who loved mysteries so much she became one.

In the beginning of the movie, it shows flashbacks of Margo crawling out her bedroom window and Quentin seeing her from his; the houses were next to each other by the way the windows were facing. Later in the movie, we see Margo go to her house which is now across the street from Quentin's. See more »
Yeah. I'm a big believer in random capitalization. The rules of capitalization are so unfair to words in the middle.

Quentin, Ben, Radar, Radar's girlfriend Angela, and Margo's friend Lacey go on a road trip.
Cara Delevingne shows competent acting and a good intriguing presence which is necessary for the role. The movie starts with her taking our lead on a nice adventure. It has its moments. I like those one-night adventures in movies. Then there is the mystery which is less compelling because I'm mostly waiting for the inevitable road trip. I also like a good road trip and this one has its moments, too. The movie ends with a nice 'lesson'. Everything is fair but nothing is outstanding. The three guys are nice but lacks great charisma. They are more and less regular teens which has its appeal. I like their friendship. As a book, I'm sure this has many fans. As a movie, it needs more adventures and more cinematic excitement. It could have tightened the middle and added more to the road trip when the group is together. This is fine but it could have been much better.
