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 ;)
