The Short Version
The Plot in a Nutshell
The Reason You (and Your Gentleman/Lady Friend) Should See it
Fans of the book will appreciate John Green's involvement in the film, as the early reviews suggest the movie closely tracks the novel. In an interview with Buzzfeed, Green explained his behind the scenes role:
"When it came to deciding who would write the movie, the producers sent me Neustadter's script for The Spectacular Now, and when it came to deciding who would direct it, I got to see Stuck in Love, Josh Boone's first movie, and then when it came time for casting, I got to have a voice in that process as well," says Green. "I want to be clear that it's not my movie. I don't want it to be my movie, and I don't know how to make movies. But I've been very lucky that everyone involved in this has taken my opinion seriously and also really wants to make a movie that will honor the story, but also honor the fans of the story."
"Do you know," he asked in a delicious accent, "what Dom Perignon said after inventing champagne?"
"No?" I said.
"He called out to his fellow monks, 'Come quickly: I am tasting the stars.' . . ."
The Fault in Our Stars
Vegetarian enchiladas are a far easier, and still tasty, option. The first time Hazel visits Gus's house, his parents are preparing chicken enchiladas and offer to vegetarianize some for Hazel.
Martha Stewart (bless her) has an excellent, simple recipe for bean and cheese enchiladas that is perfect.
For dessert, sopapilla cheesecake bars are super simple and in keeping with the Mexican food theme.
