I have to admit, I thought this was going to be another clichéd sick kid falls for obscure girl trope. No, The Fundamentals of Caring is something very special, the performances from everyone were SO real - incredible talent. Craig Roberts played Trev so convincingly and Selena Gomez' performance was also superb; she has a brilliant acting ability and is lovely to watch. Paul Rudd also should not be forgotten for his amazing performance, this ensemble worked really well together. A totally underrated movie!

I have to say I only watched it because of Paul Rudd and Selena Gomez. But I got so surprised. Every cast members are awesome and this is so real, touching, and funny too. Dot/Selena Gomez's insults are just magical. I really really liked this movie !

They put a great cast together. Selena Gomez is underappreciated as an actress, but her acting is very genuine and convincing, I am positively surprised.
