Guess what I did Wednesday night? Had a hot date with Alex Pettyfer (and Tara).
Okay, so it wasn’t a date, because he was on the big screen the whole time, but I did get to stare at him for approximately two hours.
Neither of us had read I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore, and while I normally prefer to read the book first, we were really glad we hadn’t. No judging the movie based on “it didn’t happen THAT way in the book!” made it a lot more enjoyable, I think.
The first thing I turned to Tara and said afterward was, “You know, I really liked the movie, but probably for all the same reasons other people will hate it.” … aka angst, overly pretty teenagers who are really 20-somethings playing losers when they are clearly the cool kids, excessive use of puppy shots.
So, basically, I have to say I’d recommend it. If you love YA, you’ll probably enjoy this movie.
