A gentle love story with a happy ending with a bit of tension.
Lovely story, it's got classic chick flick style and that's what I wanted.
Quite the "chick Flick" but both enjoyed the movie,
We enjoyed this movie, a nice love story with a bit more thrown in, Zac was great, and the grandmother, and the little boy......
Lovely movie, throughly enjoyed it.
Very simple and totally predictable movie. Two stars for the eye candy that is Zac Efron. :-)
No chemistry between the lead actors. Zac needed a better leading lady!
Nice easy watching. Zac not bad on the eyes either!
Dont know why I picked this one, typical romance rubbish so predictable with absolutely no substance. Watched the first 20 mins then flicked through the rest to the inevitable conclusion. Maybe for young girls who still believe in this c**p.
This isn't a really bad movie, but it was very cliched and the directing was not great either. It's all right for some light entertainment.
This is an easy movie to watch but fairly predictable. Acting by supporting cast is quite good but poor old Zac struggled, in my opinion.
lovely zac efron of course who demonstrates lovely qualities in a young man, who gives time to this girl he loves to come to him, to trust him and to realise how to appreciate him.
Loved the book by Nicholas Sparks and loved the movie too!
Nice story enjoyed this movie as did my husband. Zac Efron very good.
watched an hour and turned it off very boring and predictable
A beautiful movie with great actors. Zac Efron is so gorgeous and grown up.
Loved it - everything I expected it to be....was sorry I missed it at the cinema, but glad I've seen it now
boring and girly. watch if you like unengaging romances
I enjoyed this movie. I really liked the chemistry between Zac and Taylor. I would have given it one more star except for the couple of unbelievable bits of the kid and his father in the river and when the father attacked Zac in the street. Those bits were rather silly and overacted and detracted from the love story between the main characters. Loved Blythe Danner as the Grandmother. Lots of guts and gumption. Definitely a girls movie, but being a girl, I did like it. Good couple of hours.
This is a lovely, feel good story. Zac Efron does a good job in this one.
good feel good movie. Yeah Zac was mmm great.
A nice movie. A girlie movie, with good feelings
One on the best movies I have seen in a while, the acting was great and the story line really got you hooked in. I definately recomment!
Gorgeous film - made me think about what service men and women go through in the line of duty, what they must see and think and how having someone, anyone from home to remind them of what they are doing being 'worth it' - even if that person is not someone they even know. Loved it.
Zac Efron is very cute and he was very cute all the way through this movie. Yes, it's a chick flick but a good one. I enjoyed it. Got a little slow in the middle but picked up and ended well. The story was well balanced - could have taken a nasty turn but it smoothed out, dead wood was cut off and everybody lived happily ever after. And did I say Zac Efron is very cute!
I'm starting to appreciate Zac Efron more as an actor. I enjoyed this movie.
Good for Nicholas Spark fans and those who enjoy romantic movies. Might be a bit too romantic/boring/slow for those that generally only like action/drama movies that hold you in suspense.
Lacks the characterisation in the book and then misses the whole point of the title.
Well this is kind of a postcard to Zac Effron's amazing looks really. Although he is a reasonably good actor and I like the intensity. I would have to see him in a few other roles to be able to determine whether he can really cut it. I thought the female lead was a bad choice and came across as very insipid. A different actress and the sparks would have REALLY flown! I admit, for most guys, this would be a pretty unwatchable chick flick.
Zac Efron looked great here but not sure he really pulled off the role. Good chick flick movie but not quite up there compared to other Nicholas Sparks book-films.
loved this movie, seriously emotional and as usual, Nicholas Sparks never ceases to amaze me!! and one star for Zac Efron! yay!
The previews are the best bits.
OMG I never really liked Zac Efron BUT now YUMMO!!! I loved this movie!!
Quite surprised how much I enjoyed this movie! must see chick flick!
Zac was better than I expected. A serious love story dealing with a battle-scarred returned soldier trying to fit back in to an equally emotionally scarred community.
Not as good as I thought it would be but OK
Not as good as the other Nick Sparks adaptations, nice movie, Zac is great
this was a lovely romantic movie with a few hiccups along the way.
Not too bad. Not great, but worth watching primarily for Zac Efron, enjoyable eye candy. The film has a predictable and yet still touching storyline.
Sickly sweet Chick Flick !!!
Ticks all the boxes to be a great chickflick - beautiful love story, happy ending, Zac takes his shirt off, etc. However, the best thing about this movie is that it isn't lightweight. There's real emotion, good acting, and a great thought provoking message about destiny (good people/bad people getting what they deserve, etc.) Men might not be so keen on the mushy bits, though there are a few war scenes, etc. thrown in for them :)
Amazing movie- one of my new favourites, Zac Effron - so gorgeous - he makes the movie!
This was like a midday tele movie. Very dull.
Great adaptation of Nick Spark's book. Am a faithful reader i love seeing his words come to life. One for Nick Sparks Zac fans.
