 The People's Review of Here on Earth 

M. Ellen
score = 80
I'm the 51-year old mother of a teen boy who reminds me of Jasper in this movie.  I know this movie had all the cliches, and I know that when I cried I was being manipulated, but  I didn't care. I loved the photography, the innocence, and the love-without-sleaze. There is a reason for cliches--they hit a truth within us. That's why they keep getting repeated. In this case, the truth revealed was how beautiful and fleeting life can be, how noble love can be, and how powerful poetry can be.  I think we all need a chance to feel our emotions without being ridiculed for being "cheesy."   My favorite actor was Josh Hartnett; I want to see more movies with him. His character represented the nobility of selfless love and was a terrific example for everyone, not just kids. I know it was rather unoriginal for the writers to kill off the girl, but people really do die.  Death is not a cliche.  Like birth, death has an intensity that is not diminished just because "everybody does it."  We all die, and when we do, there are people who are left behind to suffer just like this. This movie helps us to be more compassionate.

Ok, going on the advice i found in here, i found this movie quite boring and definitely yawn worthy. You were all very misleading with your opinions and ratings (except a meager few of you who had the right idea and gave it a crap rating).

score =100 
This is truley an awesome movie!  It was funny, sad, moving, and it was very embarassing scenes! Perfect for a first date!Ü  And it even had a racing scene in it that Ive heard guys are particularly fond of! :)  I would reccomend it to anyone!

score = 80 
The begining is a little slow but this movie is definately worth seeing.  It is so sad, you'll be crying your eyes out.  It shows that you have to enjoy every moment in life, wheather it is good or bad.

this movie was so sad! i loved it! i was sobbing so much that i could hardly hear the words. this is such a great chick flic...i can't wait to see it again...

i really enjoyed the movie...i say a screening of it before the finished product, and thought that it was going to get the attention of a lot of people.  it is a very sweet love story...i recommend seeing it!! 

score = 100 
I went to one of the premiere's and I thought it was a wonderful, yet heartwrenching love story. Leelee, Chris and Josh were great. Most of the audience, including the guys, were sniffling. I think's it's a good date movie and definitely worth seeing.

score = 100 
OMIG this movie was the BEST! I saw the hollywood premiere of it on 3-21 and I cried. It was the most touching movie, and LeeLee, Chris and Josh were such great people for the parts! Ahhhh I love it!

score = 40 
This movie had nothing outstanding about it except for the fact that it showcased two well known hollywood heartthrobs: Chris Klein and Josh Hartnett.  The storyline was incredibly predictable.  Watching it, you wait for the twist that changes the whole story around, and you wonder where the suspense and rising action is.  You never find it.  The ending is positively horrible, and I recommend seeing this movie only if you want to see Chris Klein with his shirt off.  Otherwise, there are plenty of better movies out there.

score = 90 
I loved the movie because of its heartfelt content and in depth emotions.  I loved how the movie contained Robert Frost and his poetry.  I love romantic movies such as this one who relate to people who have been in Samantha's situation.  I recommend anyone esspecially couples to see it.  It's a tear jerker.

Here on Earth was a refreshing movie.  I really shows the ups and downs of love.  The acting is wonderful and it wasn't any more a 'teenage' movie than a wonderful date film.  Just bring Kleenex!

score = 100 
This is the most romantic Drama movie I've ever seen. I cryed right after I found out Sammantha had cancer and was going to die. If I had the money I would go see it again because its the greatest movie and must see movie. If you like romantic movies this is the film to see. I could watch it day and night if I could. There should be more movies like this out today instead of those horror movies. I wanted to say thanks for who came up with the idea for the film. I can't thank you enough.                            Love,                            Trisha

This movie was so excellent! i cryed so loud that people behind me were wondering when i was going to shut up. I was laughing and crying at the same time that my friends that went with me were laughing too. This is a most see and own movie. I can't wait to go out and buy it. This movie was so moving. It sort of reminded me of the relationship that me and my bestfriend (mike) have, except the fact that no one is sick. I recmend seeing this. You'll love it!!!!!

This movie was wonderful and outstanding. There was a different plot to the movie, one that I could not identify with. That's a good thing cuz most movies have the same plot. I also really loved the setting of the movie. It was very romantic. The movie was very sad. I cried throughout towards the end of the movie and most of the people in the theatre were sobbing too. It was touching and moving in every way and made me realize how special life is. It's a perfect movie to go watch with friends, families, and dates. This is a movie definately worth watching.

Here On Earth was the best movie i have ever seen i'm a guy and i cried in the film and Josh Hartnett is the cooliest actor.It's his best film since Halloween H20.A MUST SEE!!

Here on Earth was a great movie.  it's one of the best teen movies I have seen in a long time.It was cute and romantic.  Some parts of the movie weren't really realistic but if you're a hopeless romantic, this is a must see!

score = 20 
This movie was utterly horrible. Its clunky, wooden dialogue and schmaltzy plot almost made me physically ill. The engaging cast was the only reason that I did not walk out of the film in horror and disgust. Although badly miscast, Chris Klein managed to impart some charm to a character exceptional for nothing except his lack of plausibility. How an insensitive wealthy snot can suddenly be transfigured into an altruistic saint is something the screenwriters never managed to properly impart. Leelee Sobieski does as well as she can with her contrived character. The ending is one of the worst things I've ever seen in any movie, so contrived and manipulative that it made me want to badly hurt someone.

score = 90 
The movie was great I enjoyed it imensly.I am a real sucker for romantic movies, chris and leelee's performances were incredible . I think they could have made the movie alot better but I,m not complaining.I'm affraid to admit it but I cried like a baby.I loved it so much I'm going to see it again this weekend.

score = 100 
Was a very good movie with good actors. Chris Klein and Lee Lee Sobieski gave an outstanding performance. The movie was a tear jerker, bring tissue when you go see it. The actors perfomance make it seem so real. The music they use fits the movie perfectly. It is a must see, can't miss movie of the year

score = 100 
Here on Earth was one of the best movies I've ever seen because it had a GREAT story and I really enjoy movies that have love stories.  Chris Klein and Josh Harnett are some of my favorite actors, and Leelee Sobieski was perfect for the part!  Here on Earth is a must see movie!

score = 100

This movie was very medicore.  It showcased some great new rising stars,but lacked a solid story line.  It had its good romantic parts but thats about it.  Very predictable....personally I wouldn't pay regular prices for this movie.

score = 100 
Here On Earth is now my favorite movie!  I loved the whole thing.  It was so romantic and taught many lessons on life, friendship, family, new relationships, and most importantly, love.  It is a really good movie!  I can't wait to buy it when it comes out on video!

What was good about this movie?  It was predictable and lame.  Leelee Sobieski and Chris Klein weren't well suited for their roles.  The original idea behind the movie was OK but it got lost in the bad dialogue, flat storyline and lack of realism.  I wish I had saved my $8.50 and gone to the matinee instead!! I recommend you do the same !!

This is one of moviues that i like the most!this is so cute but so same in the same times.i love the movie

score = 100
The movie was wonderful. It's the best love story i had ever seen. I cried my eyes out,but it was really cute.And the fact that the two most beautiful actors Josh and Chris are the main characters make the movie even more worth wild to see.So I suggest you go see it. You'll love it.

score = 100 
I am a true romantic at heartand "Here On Earth is one of the best romance movies I have seen in a long time. It is one of those movies that you could see over and over like "Terms of Endearment".  I left the movie with tears on my face and a glorious feeling of love in my heart.

Christina Vera 
score = None 
I thought the movie was well thought out and it left the movie watcher satisfied with the ending, although it was sad.  One great up, was Chris Klein, of course coming from a girl. What ever happened to the Benz?  For crashing a car worth that much, I think they should of shown it more! But hey. I'll end with this, " When is the video coming out? "

score = 100 
Here on Earth was the best movie ive ever seen! i cried so hard at the end. i feel like im in her position you know torn between two guys. i told so many people to go see it. i don't think you could have got better people to play their parts!!

I went to go see this movie with a friend, and really loved the way it was done.  Being a person with cancer myself I could really relate to what the story was about.  It was as if this movie was written for me.  I hope everyone gets the chance to go see this movie.

score = 90 
It was a really well put together movie it has a lot of good dramatic elements and it was a tear jearker.But it would have been better if it didn't have all the cliques a few would have been fine.

score = 100 
I thought this was such a nice movie! It's so romantic, sweet but sad. It's not one of those movies that are nothing like reality.  The scenes were great and the actors even better! If you go see this movie you have to bring some tissues cuz i think everyone in that theatre was crying! The title is kind of misleading and this draws people away from it but you have to see it and tell everyone about it because it is sooooo great! I LOVE IT< LOVE IT, LOVE IT!
