In the movie, Waiting For Forever, Will Donner lost his parents when he was young and one girl was there for him, Emma. Will has spent his life following Emma because he loves her but never had the courage to tell her.

Jim hates that Will has nothing but is still happy. They don’t have a very good relationship because of Jim’s feelings. In fact, Jim treats his brother pretty bad.

My Movie Review
Waiting For Forever took me forever to get into and give it a chance. The first 20 minutes were really boring, but you really needed that information to understand the rest of the movie. I find it hard to believe that you find out someone is stalking you and then you end up falling in love with your stalker. Even though Will was a harmless stalker, I doubt most people would ever fall in love with someone who is stalking them. That made the movie seem unbelievable to me.
At the same time, I found that I liked the idea of someone helping you through the roughest time of your life coming back and falling in love with you. I fell in love with the character Will, he was so cute with all the crazy things he did in the movie. As a street performer, he wore pajamas and that was how people knew him, “Will Pajamas”.
If you give the movie a chance in the beginning, it is really not that bad and leaves you with a big impression at the end. While it was not my favorite movie, it’s a good movie to watch on a date or with your girlfriends. I’d give it 3 out of 5 stars.
