When you think of a romantic movie to watch on date night, you probably don’t immediately think of The Fault in Our Stars. But hear me out – this tearjerker actually has some seriously funny moments.
Of course, it’s not all laughs. The story follows Hazel Grace Lancaster (played by Shailene Woodley), a teenage girl with terminal cancer who falls in love with Augustus Waters (Ansel Elgort), a fellow cancer patient. As you might expect, there are plenty of heartwarming moments, and plenty of tearful ones too.
But what sets The Fault in Our Stars apart is its sense of humor. The characters are witty and sarcastic, and their banter is genuinely funny. Even in the darkest moments, they manage to find something to laugh about. And let’s be real – when you’re dealing with a subject as heavy as cancer, a little humor can go a long way.
One of the funniest scenes in the movie is when Hazel and Gus go to Amsterdam to meet Hazel’s favorite author, Peter Van Houten. Without giving too much away, let’s just say that things don’t go quite as planned. But even in the midst of the chaos, Hazel and Gus manage to find the humor in the situation.
Of course, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows (although there is a beautiful scene involving a literal rainstorm). The final act of the movie is a real tearjerker, and you’ll definitely need some tissues on hand. But even in the midst of all the sadness, there are moments of hope and beauty that will stay with you long after the credits roll.
All in all, The Fault in Our Stars is a movie that will make you laugh, cry, and fall in love. It’s not your typical romantic movie, but that’s what makes it so special. So go ahead and add it to your date night watchlist – just make sure you have plenty of tissues and a sense of humor on hand.
