How badly did 'Dear Evan Hansen' bomb at TIFF? Scroll through Twitter to see the critics tear everything from the plot to the Ben Platt's actual hair.

‘Dear Evan Hansen’ is another Broadway movie bomb: Blame the plot

The plot of Dear Evan Hansen is honestly a lot. The musical follows the titular Evan Hansen, who struggles with anxiety, as he fakes a friendship with a boy who committed suicide after his therapy homework letters were discovered by the boy’s parents. He accidentally starts an inspiring movement and tries to keep the lies from crashing down around him. It’s . . . well, it’s definitely a lot.

Now, we have the musical movie version of the film heading to theatres. It just had its world premiere at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival). So how did the plot of Dear Evan Hansen translate to the screen? According to people on Twitter, not well! Let’s see their reactions about yet another musical bomb, shall we?



Listen “Waving Through a Window” may slap, but Evan Hansen is a terrible person.



Maybe Stephen Chbosky should stick to writing.


On the bright side

Well, it’s no Cats so hopefully this won’t kickstart the Apocalypse.


That was his own hair?!?!

Oh Ben Platt, baby. You should sue whoever did your hair in this movie.


It has its fan(s) apparently

Wow, someone actually enjoyed the movie.


Probably not but . . . 

You have to wonder if producers will scramble to fix it.


*waves to Film Twitter*

Film Twitter always there with the takedowns.



Why can’t we put Kaitlyn Dever in better things?!


Shoulda, woulda, coulda

We should have re-casted Ben Platt.



Now that’s a way to get people vaccinated.

What do you think went wrong with the Dear Evan Hansen adaptation? Was it the plot? Or was it just everything in general? Let us know in the comments below.
