An autotuned travesty to a musical I loveNeed I say more? I’ll say it anyway. Casting: No. Just no. Another actor should have had the chance to make Evan their own, because the film version shouldn’t be identical to Broadway Evan. You may have created the role of Evan, Benji, but admit it to some extent: your daddy bought the film role for you. Music: the instrumentals were a pleasant upgrade from what I’m used to (so if they release a karaoke version, I’d actually like to use that over the OBC), but why the excessive autotune? Even Ben’s voice was computerized and he never hesitates to remind us he “created and originated the role”. The direction that Chbosky took for this inspirational story was so disrespectful to the show that Pasek & Paul created. Those of you who gave this film five stars, I understand that’s your opinion and you have a right to it, but on behalf of the Broadway production, you guys don’t understand the problem with this transfer from Broadway to film screen. This film had the chance to be my all-time favorite: it’s a musical I love and YA coming-of-age films are always well-done in my opinion. Not this one. This garbage gets D- from me..Score: 2/5
A Sad, but calming movieFirst of all, let me just say I think the negative reviews this film received are a complete over-reaction! I never saw the stage production, the film is sad, yes, but the film, and music also have a calming feel that fits in perfectly with the fall season🍁Ben Platt puts on a phenomenal performance, and really has the tendencies of someone with social anxiety down pat! As someone with social anxiety myself, I related to Evan’s character💚.Score: 5/5

Great movieWhen I found out Dear Evan Hansen was going to be a movie, I was excited. The cast is amazing. Ben Plat does a good job reprising his role. the band were awesome, too. I loved this movie. To other reviewer, the guy who plays Evan in the play, is the same as the one in the movie..Score: 5/5
AwfulIt’s terrible. It isn’t faithful to the original play and every actor especially the guy who played Evan is terrible. Watch the play.Score: 1/5
Dear Evan Hansen, emotional turmoilI watched this musical with no previous knowledge of the wealth of hate stacked onto the movie version. I EASILY overlooked the age of star Ben Platt & was immediately drawn into the story. Where some see the self centred benefit to his “deception” I saw the anxiety & lack of confidence the character displayed as the initial driving force of the ruse. Evan began by trying to tell the family the real story but seeing their grief & misunderstanding with the note while desperately looking for something positive to remember their angry & troubled son, he reluctantly tried to comfort them by going along with their false friendship in an effort to comfort them. The songs were excellent & very powerful! The story was sad & Evan’s lie becomes beyond despicable in the end. Every character in the show is struggling to make their way through the challenges life has thrown at them. It is easy to relate to some, many or all the different issues these characters are facing. The song complement the story so well. I was sucked right in from the start. People can’t complain if they want but the heart & message of this story is amazing & if it doesn’t stir some emotion in you then I’m not sure if you’re lucky or if that is just sad..Score: 5/5

DifferentIt is different than the musical, both good and bad. I really like the new songs added. The tone was changed by removing a few songs at the beginning. It feels it’s made more for teens with the changes, removing important groundwork from the parents. The last show I saw weeks before Covid shut down the world was the broadway show. I will happily watch either show again, and enjoy a musical playlist with all the songs (broadway and movie)..Score: 4/5
