If a film asks you to invest an hour and a half in the breakup of two teenagers, it has to make sure those characters and their love story are epic. That's unfortunately not the case in Hello, Goodbye and Everything in Between, which dwells on their meet-cute only to flip through the months of their relationship in fast motion, then walk us back through them as reenactments. The actors/characters are likeable but not especially memorable. The location is pretty but not specified. The filming is by-the-book. A highlight are the best friends, humorous secondary characters played by Nico Hiraga and Djouliet Amara. Other movies have done this better.
