Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn't possibly be right for one another...or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.

So here is 102 minutes of my life I won’t get back!

What surprised me most was the unpredictability of the movie… SAID NO ONE EVER!

So as well as being predictable, I found it kind of shitty that these two people, who both know they love each other, enter into these relationships with other people knowing full well that it’s not the person they really want or love.

After a while, while taking forever to actually get to inevitable point, the scenarios and events that are keeping these two apart start to become less and less plausible.

Another thing I disliked was that this movie takes place over 12 years and yet they don’t age the actors. All they did was change their hairstyles. Now I’m not expecting wrinkles and sagging but at least some laughter lines or something.

Having said all this, the two lead stars, Lily Collins and Sam Claflin, do have chemistry together.

Oh and the soundtrack was pretty good, featuring the likes of Lily Allen and Beyoncé, so at least the movie had that going for it!

Don't waste your time, I wouldn’t watch this movie again.
