      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      Although Chloë Grace Moretz gives it her all and the story adds an intriguing supernatural twist to its melodramatic YA framework, If I Stay is ultimately more manipulative than moving. Read critic reviews

        If I was an undiscriminating 12 year old girl, I might give this a higher score. Bad script, written by someone who lacks life experiences (or so it seems). Wasted talent. I also love how Adam (the musician love interest who claims the Ramones were a big influence, yet you can't hear it in his music) only has to play a song to bring her back, but her little brother struggling doesn't. Enough plot holes to think someone shotgun blasted it. Maybe they did.

        Melodrama has been defined and filmed from the inception of this medium, to now. It has often been attributed to the interests of women, sometimes even being called a "women's film." Some would argue that there's good melodrama ("Terms of Endearment," "Random Harvest.") and bad melodrama ("Lifetime" movies). This film falls into the latter, trying to merge supernatural romance and melodrama. Read more at http://www.bluefairyblog.com/reviews/2015/9/17/if-i-stay

        So sad, yet beautiful. I wasn't a fan of the ending.

        I couldn't even stay to watch the ending of this movie, she took way to long to make a decision!
