Typical romantic story, a pleasant enough watch if nothing else is on.
Quite slow moving. Channing is very serious in this role.
I love this lovely duvely stuff
A passable movie easy to watch not a rivetting movie
Loved this movie. I have loved Channing Tatum & Amanda Seyfried in their other movies. I wasn't sure how they would work as a couple, but it did work. Great movie.
It's girly but I liked it a lot. Need tissues.
Proper girlie movie - I had to keep the box of tissues at hand!
I did not enjoy this movie at all. Dialogue was hard to hear even at full volume. Disc kept freezing from 1:11 onwards. Very disappointing.
Good movie but the disc kept stopping near the end which was rather annoying managed to see it through though. May be wise to check the disc I returned.
Sweet film. Handsome cast. Emotional. A nice change.
The Dear John, movie was entertaining and good. In fact it was one of those movies where you want to watch some thing light without getting into something to heavy. This movie met this criteria.
we could not view this dvd comes up disc error
I enjoyed it. Loved the music, especially Paperweight. It could have been better, but all up a nice romantic story.
great good feel movie. good story.
bad disc made watching film not interesting... I will get it again one day.
We really loved this movie, would recommend
Very slow movie, wouldnt recommend...It was ok but didnt have much going on..
Great movie - but very emotional. Have your tissues ready for this one.
A chick flick, easy to watch, fairly predictable, nice story, bit sad, overall enjoyed it.
Cry, cry, cry from me. :) didn't like the ending.
nothing like the novel. novel MUCH better.
Average chick-flick. no where near as good as THE NOTEBOOK, because the minimal character exposure or subsequent development, they remain shallow throughout the movie. Just a basic love story really, only an average night's entertainment could have been much better with more thought by the writer.
An enjoyable girlie movie. Some Deja-vu with the letter writing.
Movie was boring and lacked connection to characters. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.
Unfortunate title but movie is very enjoyable. Good plot, good depiction of battle scenes. I give this one a four stars.
We enjoy this movie but it was badly marked had to stop and start all the way.
Not very good - took so long to get started I gave it away after an hour.
First enjoyed this movie at the cinema, a lovely girlie movie.
A great movie, like storys like that,
love love love love this movie.... such a romantic story that melts the hardest of hearts.
Classic Nicholas Sparks-romantic weepy
Very nice story line, maybe a bit slow movie, a really girlie flick, and was impressed by Channing Tatum
Not as per expectation... didn't enjoy
Interesting love story which meanders along a bit. Nice twist at the end.
We enjoyed the movie but what really enthused us was the presence of Braeden Reed in the film. His Asperger's is very familiar to us and we rejoice in its presence in our family. The addition of the lengthy special feature on him was an added treasure. It honoured all those wonderful kids in the world.
I loved this movie it was very touching indeed, great acting also. Exceptional actors all through this heart felt movie.
Dear John. It's over. Thank God.
I didn't get too watch the Dear John, our teenager watched it...so, can't really rate it.
Amanda Seyfried is a great new actress, but the movie was quite boring. Nothing much happens.
great film, showing feelings that whatever happens in our lives never end or disappear,
the happiness or the suffering require a fair patience in heart,
the actors are honest and straightforward
childhood has always an impact in our future.
This is a love story that is largely a fantasy between the lovers. He is a dedicated warior in Iraque. Her love can't grow because of their separation. She has an unhappy marrige. When the warrior returns the have a chance meeting whichy could develop into another love story. Excellent acting.
I nearly turned this one off. I picked it because it based on another Nichollas Sparks book and I loved the Notebook. This was tedious and the ending was unsatisfying. Do yourself a favour though, if you do borrow this watch the alternate ending in the special features - there more closure and fulfilment with the alternate ending.
Bad dialogue, unsatisfying ending - was very disappointed!
Good movie. Video was a little scratched though in a few places.
Beautiful and touching love story. Was slightly disappointed in the ending but enjoyed the film overall. Channing Tatum is amazing!! Perfect specimen of a man! Wow!
A little disapointing a good perv on channing but the ending wasn't that good.
Chaning Tatum is gorgeous. Great movie!
Beautiful story, glad it didn't end the same way as all love stories. Aaaaah
it was ok for love story.
Loved it, great to watch with the kids
After watching this movie it quickly became one of my favourite chick flicks of all time. Definitley up there with The Notebook and PS I Love You. It made me cry and laugh so much. A perfect movie to sit down and watch with the girls.
light weight chic flic fluff if you're over 15 dont bother
wonderful love story, could have had a different ending.
Excellent movie i couldnt believe that happened. Sad movie. The young boy only wanted to help his friend find his father and he ends up getting killed himself i didnt think it was fair.
Nice movie. relaxing, romantic,sweet. likeable characters
A really nice, heartfelt film. The storyline is very well written and the performances by Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum were both memorable and believable. I definately recommend this movie.
An average movie. It had the potential to be so much better. Nowhere near as good as The Notebook.
A bit too "stars and stripes" for me. Another light movie, worth a peek
Very enjoyable movie. Renew faith in true love
A great movie to escape into, and one that draws you in and stays with you afterwards. I liked the various sub-plots and themes which gave depth to the story (like 9/11, and autism), and how it spanned several years. Also involved some unexpected twists, so I didn't find it completely predictable. A heartwrenching story of love, loss, obligation, and patience.
What a beautiful Love Story
Ahhhh Schmaltz. Love this girl. She has the acting range of Miss Aniston (ie; one size fits all) but its a great snuggle on the lounge movie.
If you love that tough kind of guy that only one girl can get the sweet side out of... and how love you can love someone but not always be with them.. how relationships can change but still that connection is never the same with another. This movie is great, definitely would watch again! Absolutely loved it.
i loved it, this will be another dvd for my collection....
Nicholas Sparks is a fantastic novolist - they should stop turning his books into movies and certainly stop changing the story line
Beautiful story protrayed well on the screen. Not quite the depth of "The Bridges of Madison County" but very close for a young love story full of angst and confusion.Such is life!
Amanda Seyfield is fantastic as always and should be well on her way to bigger and brighter things. Channing Tatum showed amazing depth with this role.
A brilliant piece of cinematography with a compelling story line that is beautifully scripted and well cast. This movie brings to life the choices, sacrifices and price paid by those called to military service along with those who love them. This film is destined to become one of the all time greats.
this movie made me feel like vomiting. it was just annoying and very sooky american
This movie did not interest me, as it seemed to have a funny ending, when i thought that they would get together in the end, they ended up not even, being together, it was not so interesting to me.
i found it to be a little slow. the ending wasn't the best.
Average story line. Didn't find the reason's behind the choices Amanda Seyfried's character made very believable or realistic. Expected a romantic film that tugged at the heartstrings but the movie didn't deliver. It's a pity because I loved the actors in the movie, they were fantastic, but I think the story wasn't wasn't very cohesive.
Absolutely beautiful movie and a lot more than the usual romantic 'chic flic', you have the total range of emotions and I'm sure is going to become a modern day classic with references to 9/11 and the war in Afganistan. Amanda Seyfried who got our attention in 'Mamma Mia' is blossoming into a very talented and beautiful actress. Don't hesitate to recommend this as a 'must see' movie.
Quickflix, this film made me cry. So sad.
Lovely story not as i expected though, i compared it to The Notebook. The actors did not quite have the same chemistry as with The Notebook.
A beautiful movie. Touching storyline with a not so traditional ending. You'll need the tissue box for this one :)
Wonderful movie, great story, good cast, good script - but watch closely or you'll miss some of the finer details. Have the kleenex ready.
So Romantic. A beautiful story.
Loved every minute of it!
Beautiful movie.what a great story.I'm glad the ending wasn't a straight forward 'they live happily ever after' story.Really enjoyed this movie :)
Better than expected, sweet story, easy to watch and enjoyable. Perhaps more for girl's than guys.
A pretty faithful adaptation of the book.
Nice movie although I expected a better ending
