Are you a romantic?

January 21, 2012

If you loved the film “The Notebook”, you will probably love “Dear John”.

This 2010 movie featuring Amanda Seyfried (Mamma Mia!) and Channing Tatum (Public Enemies) as young lovers Savannah and John, follows their story as John leaves to complete his military service and Savannah goes to college. A stream of love letters flow, as they look forward to being reunited in a year. But then war breaks out, and John doesn’t know when – or if – he will return. Can their relationship stand the test of time?

This romantic drama is based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks.  There is a sprinkle of cliche here and there, plenty of romantic syrup and a dollop of heartache. Altogether a heart-warming serving of sentimentality. Not quite as good as “The Notebook”, but a good effort from these young actors.

Check out the other movies that you can rent from the library for $3.50/7 nights (members only).
