    While I think If I Stay has to do a fair amount of juggling to get its premise to work, there is a cumulative power to it that I found undeniable and earned.

    Even at its most wrenchingly painful, the film readily delivers generous dollops of pleasure.

    The saddest thing about If I Stay is that it affords Moretz so little opportunity to be non-sad.

    Few genuine moments throw into even sharper relief the tedious trappings which surround this, your average teenage tragedy.

    Child actors can have a tough time transitioning into adult careers, their charm often evaporating with the onset of puberty. But for Chloë Grace Moretz, the trouble isn’t growing pains; she’s just overqualified for the roles Hollywood tends to offer young women her age.

    The problem is that almost everything in the film feels either forced or false, so the tears aren't earned.

    The film, based on the novel by Gayle Forman, is an almost deliberate confirmation of Alison Bechdel's claim that women in film are so often shown only in relation to men.

This movie had me in tears just like the book. All I want to know is will there be sequel. The second book: "Where she went" was even better than the second one. There's got to be a second movie too.

Chloë'If I Stay' has tons of romantic cliche's that's the problem with the movie, however actors were trying (basically everyone was trying.) Chloë Grace Moretz plays her strong role as Mia a talented musician who loves Adam (Jamie Blackley) then tragedy between Mia's family then links the characters together (cliche) Mortez gives us a performance that was "glaring" her parents were funny as well. This movie is sad but i was so moved by the story and the characters. Grade B- Expand

    BARBRA STREISAND - song - The Way We Were.

    Mem'ries,
    Light the corners of my mind
    Misty water-colored memories
    Of the way we were
    Scattered pictures,
    Of the smiles we left behind
    Smiles we gave to one another
    For the way we were
    Can it be that it was all so simple then?
    Or has time re-written every line?
    If we had the chance to do it all again
    Tell me, would we? Could we?
    Mem'ries, may be beautiful and yet
    What's too painful to remember
    We simply choose to forget
    So it's the laughter
    We will remember
    Whenever we remember...
    The way we were...
    The way we were...
