* RelationshipWritingFumble: Unlike the book, Lacey and Ben don't have much chemistry here. Many viewers felt Lacey had more chemistry with ''Q'' than she did with Ben, or than Q did with Margo.

This was possibly a holdover from [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/03/19/paper-towns-john-green_n_6902886.html an earlier (and, according to John Green, far worse) version of the script]] which did in fact change the OfficialCouple from Q and Margo to Q and Lacey.

* ToughActToFollow: The film is by no means bad, but gets compared to ''Film/TheFaultInOurStars'' a lot, with many complaints that ''Paper Towns'' can't quite live up to ''TFIOS''.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: Fans of the book didn't take well to the changes made to the plot (Q attending prom, his friends leaving him in Algoe after his outburst, Lacey and Ben getting together on the roadtrip instead of beforehand, etc.).

** Real life sociopaths have said that they can relate to Margo pretty well since she, herself, can be identified as a sociopath.
--> ''Margo growing up in the movie had few friends, and ran away from home five times on impulse. She would also always leave clues just to toy with people she left behind. Later during high school she seemed to act quite impulsively, and liked to live on the edge as she described it. When she found out her boyfriend cheated on her she had no problem cutting off him and her friend group, getting a quick revenge, then leaving town again...''

* HarsherInHindsight: Radar, who's black, getting a t-shirt with a confederate flag on it that says, "Heritage not Hate", was hilarious in the book, which came out in 2008. Fast-forward to 2015, the year the movie came out... and also the year when the controversy over the Confederate flag, and whether it stands for racism or not, has reached violent levels of protest and conflict. Suddenly the scene isn't so funny.

* BaseBreaker: Margo. Despite her HiddenDepths and BeneathTheMask identity, many people find her true self whiny and pretentious.
