From the moment the decision was made to turn John Green's bestselling novel, <em>The Fault in Our Stars</em>, into a film, it was a guaranteed hit. Hazel Grace Lancaster (Shailene Woodley) is 16, the Keith Richards of cancer and has to carry an oxygen tank around with her because her lungs barely work. At a cancer support group, she meets the smart-mouthed and charming survivor, Augustus Gus Waters (Ansel Elgort). Even though the stars are not on their side, the two fall in love. They go for walks, they visit Amsterdam, they talk about books, they text each other and it's all supposed to make you feel warm and fuzzy until you realise it was an elaborate setup to make you weep copiously. Which you do, because really, what else can you do while watching a love story starring two kids with cancer? Well, thanks to Josh Boone's utterly insipid adaptation of <em>The Fault in Our Stars</em>, you could just be bored to tears while watching this film.
