Genre: Romance, Drama
I was really thinking that this movie was going to capture my heart and put me into my romance oblivion that my favorite romance movies and books often do. I was sort-of disappointed. I have to say that the acting was actually pretty good, I like Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum a lot. I feel like they had good chemistry, but I was looking for "The Notebook" or "Titanic" kind of romance. The drama, the conflict and the eventual coming back around to the ultimate love, and I never really felt that. I wanted intense, but it fell a little short of that. It wasn't a bad movie by any means, I just didn't find myself longing for more. All in all, you will get the romance, but don't expect the heartfelt story of some previous movies.
Again, I totally agree with Deb. Two weeks in a row! We're starting to get back on the same wavelength.
I really wanted to just LOVE this movie. I love Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum so no issues there. They do have great chemistry so they were a good match. Another plus. And the story line seemed like it would make a wonderfully, heartbreaking, want to die in your seat kind of movie. But the truth is, it only sort of did. For the most part I ended up feeling really bad for Tatum's character the whole time without truly getting great closure in the end. I just wanted more. Although, I will say I've thought a lot about the movie since I've seen it. Usually that's a good sign for me. But that might also have something to do with the fact that I let my imagination run wild about the "what ifs" in life.
So I'd say it was a decent movie and if you're thinking about going to it you would probably like it but don't count on loving it. As Deb said, it's no Titanic.
