They changed one of the best books I've ever read into another cliche movie. First, they changed the main characters personality. She had more things to worry about then being a duff her life was complicated and sad. In the movie she was so heart broken by being a duff and changed herself to please others. Then it is her relationship with Wesley. After that is fact they just needed to add a mean girl and groups of people ( like there's no other movie like that. ) They also changed Wesley from rich to a jock. I honestly think the author allowed these changes for fame and was heart broken they changed it so much. - PandoraPanda

Had nothing to do with the book. First, they decided to add bella Thorne to be a mean girl (no mean girl in the book) then they needed to change a girl who had a horrible sad life to one who's only problem is that she's a duff and makes a big deal about it. They changed Wesley to a jock and added groups everyone had to be in ( so original. ) The author wanted fame so she let them change everything about the original amazing book. :(

The movie will better if it directed the original writters, BUT NO, LET'S DIRECT A MOVIE BASED ON A BOOK WITH Michael BAY, IF WILL BEEN GREAT (sarcasm)

Are a scenes that don't like just the book got and got so much errors for example
1- In the book, John got the scar in a boat, in the movie got the scar in a beach
2- in the book sam is redhead, in the movie is brunette
3- in the book Henri dies in the battle at the school, in the movie dies in the battle at the incoporation of the web site of aliens
4- in the book the house of the party is in flames, in the movie only John save Sarah and more later escape
5- in the book the principal of the school show John a article that show he is a alien, in the movie that don't show

Conclusion: the movie was produced to got money
