Love brought them together will fate tear them apart.
Sergeant John Tyree is home on a 2 week leave from Germany. He meets Savannah after he dives into the ocean to retrieve Savannah's purse that had fallen off the pier. John falls in love with Savannah who is a student on spring break helping build a house for Habitat for Humanity. A romance occurs and Savannah falls deeply in love with John. She promises to write John overseas until he returns.
Your film is shit.
It started ominously with a woeful analogy comparing a minted coin and a US soldier all narrated by Mr Monotone, Channing Tatum. His range as an actor is quite staggering and he manages to convey love, anger, sadness etc. without ever changing the expression on his face. I'd love to see an Inside the Actor's Studio episode with him just to see how James Lipton tries to sycophantically make him appear a good actor. In this he plays the usual quiet tough guy with a sensitive side who seemingly has special powers that make autistic children love him (thankfully not in the sweeties and lets play secret games way). But he…
she is a loveable non-threatening blonde who doesn't drink or smoke and curses only in her head
he is a bad boy with daddy issues who has shrugged off his Local Thug mantle after falling in love with America and going to serve her in unnamed but unmistakeably foreign countries
together they make a relationship entirely lacking individuality, appeal or chemistry
everything about this dumb fucking movie made me so angry, including the fact that it was made after a book written by the same insufferable brainless porridge of a douchelord author who wrote The Notebook, Nicholas Sparks
I am not sure what kind of emotion this insipid pile of beige was supposed to evoke in me, but I felt nothing save the douche chills which wafted over me as freely and frequently as if I were stood naked in a winter wonderland of douchedom
fuck Nicholas Sparks
and fuck this movie
If you like love stories, this one is a must watch.
The Notebook was a tour de force in emotionally draining film making and sentimentality. This is a turgid and slow film that spends a lot of time on meaningful pauses, staring into the middle distance and heavy dialogue.
Tatum and Seyfried do what they can with the script, though the main draw appears to be Tatum's ability to look good carrying a surfboard or in military uniform. Seyfried is saddled with a character with even less development and, all in all, ends up being just as poorly utilised as Tatum.
If you want to see Tatum act; Stoploss, A Guide to Recognising Your Saints and The Eagle make a much better job.
Of course I knew I wouldn't like this movie, but I did not know just how very painful it would be to sit in a cinema and watch it. Sadly, this marked the last time I let that friend choose the movie. In fact, I think it was the last time we ever went to the movies together.
Ugh. Dear John. I don’t think it gets to be in my #romcommoviemarathon. I wish I could get back the last 2 hours.
At least Channing Tatum was in it!! lol
Mucho amor y muy triste todo.
how did their careers not tank after this? two stars only cuz they're pretty
Much better than I expected it to be and probably the best Nicholas Sparks adaptation next to "A Walk To Remember" and "The Notebook". Channing Tatum is infuriatingly charming and Amanda Seyfried is pretty adorable. I was pretty shocked at how often the conflict felt organic and how uncontrived the story seemed (for a romantic drama, that is). Like most Sparks films, the third act is a bit of a mess but still not an awful watch.
ZZZZZZZZZZ I'm sorry, was there actually a point to this movie? Trite, overly-sentimental crap with the slowest pace of any film I have ever seen. I expected more, particularly due to the powerhouse combination of Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, and Nicholas Sparks. LAME! P.S. The one star is for Channing Tatum's hot bod and the dude from "Hart of Dixie" making an appearance.
Enjoyable, but not what I was expecting. Considering that this is a N. Sparks creation, I was hoping to see something more heart-wrenching, but it was halfway there. Their love wasn't all that strong, it were the circumstances the only thing that spiced up their story.
I'm guessing the book is way better.
It's an okay film, when you're in the mood for some fluff and something without a great plot.
Vengo a contarles que la vi y que no me gustó. No hay nada más que decir.
PD: NO SOPORTO A TATUM.
