More teen angst than soppy teen movie

I watched this with my mature 11 year old. She was quite shocked at the language in it but I think in the UK the words used are considered more shocking than in US. I appreciated the gay relationship in it as this is rarely shown in a teen movie, let alone in such a positive manner. I probably enjoyed it more than her as it was more teenage angst than high school musical!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (15 ):

This is an all-around high-energy production, featuring spirited young performers with terrific chemistry when it's needed. And the happy endings make these intercut stories (based on the 2009 YA book by John Green, Lauren Myracle, and Maureen Johnson) feel fresh, if not original. Viewers will know what to expect from the very beginning, but they'll be engaged, rooting for their favorites, and they'll feel good when the credits roll. Special kudos to Joan Cusack and Andrea de Oliveira, who are wonderful in their roles as savvy adults; Cusack is, as always, delightfully playful. Not entirely "wholesome" (sadly, the profanity and underage drinking will keep some kids and/or parents away), Let It Snow is a seriously warmhearted holiday effort. The cast and crew must have had a great time making it.
