Directed by Michael Sucsy, this movie is the mother of all romantic drama films. You got Channing Tatum from Dear John and Rachel McAdams from The Time Traveler’s Wife & The Notebook. It’s like they specifically came together to make us all cry.
The movie is about a couple who fall in love and get married in the happiest way possible. More mushy stuff happens, blahblahblah. THEN, their making out in their car and some idiot driving a truck crashes straight into them. Nothing major happens to him, but SHE LOSES HER MEMORY. SHE DOES NOT REMEMBER HER HUSBAND. HE HAS TO MAKE HER FALL IN LOVE WITH HIM ALL OVER AGAIN. THIS IS ALREADY SO SAD. And after the happy montage in the trailer of how much their made for each other, IT’S HEARTBREAKING!!.
Now the good news is that this movie is not based on a book so there’s no way they can butcher this (yes i’m looking at you Dear John). Although there is a book about the actual people this happened to because this story is based on true events *sadface*.
Channing Tatum & Rachel McAdams as mentioned before have experience in playing these types of roles so I don’t doubt them for one second. But obviously, Rachel McAdams will be better than Channing Tatum. Also in this movie, Channing Tatum with a slicked-back hairstyle which to me is actually pretty new and significant. The director of the movie directed Grey Gardens (2009) which received multiple awards so that’s always a good thing to know about the director of the film right.
Their releasing this movie Valentine’s Day next year. I find that particularly interesting, because this is not a romantic-comedy and isn’t that what usually comes out on V-Day? This brings me to believe that the story has a happy ending. Or else the theatre will be filled with heartbroken people or couples who thought the movie was happy.
OKAY, this movie will definitely have a happy ending. It’s called THE VOW for a reason…….vows can’t be broken (at least not in this movie)….
