The Movie Slut, who can still enjoy teen movies (sometimes), had two problems with this film. For one, it had so many different ideas it seemed to want to hit on every major point in the supernatural book series.
But more distracting for MS was the likeness between Alden Ehreinreich, the male love interest, and a young Jack Nicholson. At times it seemed he'd studied the Five Easy Pieces star's moves and expressions and was channeling or imitating Jack.
Despite Ehreinreich's good looks, antic grin and renegade style, two of older actors stole the show. Jeremy Irons and Emma Thomson were non-humans in the film and played their roles with relish.
