Movie Review: The Vow

Summary: A car accident puts Paige (McAdams) in a coma, and when she wakes up with severe memory loss, her husband Leo (Tatum) works to win her heart again.

Review: As you all probably already know, I'm OBSESSED with any romance story, especially anything written by Nicholas Sparks. Though this was not one of Sparks' creations, two of his previous actors (McAdams from The Notebook and Tatum from Dear John) came together to create a love story with his signature passion. 

Leo and Paige had such a perfect love in the beginning of the movie. They met, they dated, they fell hopeless and madly in love. So when Paige loses her memory of the last five years, the years she met Leo, they have to work to get that once in a lifetime love back. The only problem is Paige still thinks she's engaged to her ex-fiance and living a wonderful, classy life as a law student. Leo loves Paige with all his heart, but how does he make the love of his life fall in love with him all over again? 

This movie is filled with so much emotion and I just could not get enough of it! The movie had you rooting for Leo the entire time and there were enough twists in the plot to keep you on your toes. There were times I would sigh in delight and there were times I felt like throwing my popcorn at the screen because I was so mad at some of the characters, but those reactions just show how great this movie is. It's not the typical perfect love story; there are so many ups and downs in the relationship that it's impossible not to have some sort of reaction to it. 

Some events in the movie annoyed me and I wasn't too big of a fan of how everything ended, but the entire journey of the story was impossible not to love. If your in the mood for a love story that's perfect yet so unperfect at the same time, check out this movie. And watching Channing Tatum for a full two hours (and I mean REALLY seeing Channing Tatum) doesn't hurt either. Do you think if I went and got hit by a car, I'd wake up to have Channing Tatum as my husband? Hmmm, I'd say it's worth a shot ;)


  1. I am so excited for this one!! We're doing a GNO this week and going for Margarita's and then to see The Vow! I'm so excited for it, I can't wait!

    I'm glad you loved it - and I never like the end of Nicholas Sparks stories. Never.

  2. Wow, I want to see this so much! I love any kind of romance story too and this film seems perfect for me. Thanks for the great review! :)

  3. I really want to see this one and I know I'll be trying to guess how it all ends the whole time. Can't wait!

  4. When I first saw the previews for this at We Bought a Zoo, I knew I wanted to see it. I don't know if I'll get the chance to see it while it's still in theaters but I know I will watch it at some point.

  5. I just watched the interview with the real life couple Kim and Krickett on the Today Show. They were a darling couple. There is actually a book and I bought a copy of it on Barnes and Noble. Wanting to read the book before I see the movie.

  6. THIS MOVIE SUCKED just saying :) love you anyways but you are super wrong

  7. Thanks for the review, I really want to go and see it now! It sounds like my perfect film :)

  8. I read the book the week before I went to see the movie, and wasn't impressed with the movie at all. With the exception of the basic plot of a wife losing memory of her husband, the movie is nothing like the book. Read the's ten times better than the movie and shows us what real love is really about. In my opinion, Hollywood's version of the real-life love story is just a watered down version that doesn't do the book justice.
