Paper Towns | Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment

I watched Paper Towns over the weekend. Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment sent me the Blu-ray for review on my movies blog. The film is based on the Paper Towns novel by John Green. The story is about a boy who follows a series of clues to find the love of his life. I enjoyed the movie and really liked it. I love the two main characters in the story, but wish they were together in more of the scenes. In case you are wondering, the term paper towns refers to fake cities map makers place in their maps to discourage people from using their maps to make other maps. Paper Towns is available now on Digital HD, Blu-ray and DVD. BTW, for a limited time, you get the Paper Towns fan pack Blu-ray with collectible packaging that includes sticky notes of inspirational quotes from the film and a U.S. map.

Five Things About Paper Towns

  1. Paper Towns is a coming of age story
    The story revolves around Quentin and Margo. They grew up together, but drifted apart by the time they became seniors in high school. Then one night, Margo re-renters Quentin’s life. They go out on the town avenging the people who have done Margo wrong. But then the next day, Margo disappears. Quentin finds a clue about Margo’s disappearance and concludes she left the clue because she wants him to find her. So Quentin and his two best friends follow the clues to track down Margo. In the end, Quentin realizes while everyone was doing things for the last time before they graduate from high school, he was actually doing things for the first time because of his some-what sheltered life.

  2. The ending was unexpected
    I don’t want to give away the ending, but I will tell you it wasn’t what I was expecting. I’m guessing the movie ended the way it did because that’s how the book ended. I’m not saying it was good or bad, just unexpected.

  3. Paper Towns is rated PG-13
    The movie is rated PG-13 for language, drinking, sexuality and partial nudity involving teens. I remember bad language, a butt shot of a boy running away and an off-screen sex scene between two teenagers. In my opinion, the film is fine for most kids.

  4. The main characters are teenagers
    Paper Towns stars Nat Wolff (Quentin) and Cara Delevingne (Margo). They are great together, but sadly, they are not in the same scenes for a good part of the story. Other cast members include Austin Abrams (Ben), Justice Smith (Radar), Halston Sage (Lacey), Jaz Sinclair (Angela), Cara Buono (Mrs. Jacobsen), Josiah Cerio (Young Quentin), Hannah Alligood (Young Margo), Meg Crosbie (Ruthie), Griffin Freeman (Jase), Caitlin Carver (Becca), RJ Shearer (Chuck), Susan Macke Miller (Mrs. Spiegelman), and Tom Hillmann (Mr. Spiegelman). Paper Towns was directed by Jake Schreier.
