Dear John
Director Lasse Hallström and screenwriter Jamie Linden collaborate to adapt author Nicholas Sparks' novel about a young soldier who falls for an idealistic college girl. Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried) was on spring break when she first met John Tyree (Channing Tatum), who was home on temporary leave. For the smitten soldier it was practically love at first sight. Over the course of the next seven years, when each deployment seemed more treacherous than the last, the love letters that Savannah sent to John were one of the only things that kept him going. However, those loving and heartfelt correspondences would ultimately yield consequences that neither the brave soldier nor his one true love could have ever foreseen. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Pretty good movie, 4 Stars


    Lets set it up: I am a Male, just finished my Freshman year in College, and I am 19. I am also a huge movie buff and have seen thousands of films. Ok the movie is a pretty good movie, if you liked The Notebook you would probably like this movie. It is a standard chick flick and a standard Nicholas Sparks story. But neither is a negative factor, it is a happy movie about a young couple falling in love during the summer with the usual Nicholas Sparks twists and turns. You will laugh and cry, and overall enjoy this film. Watch it with your girlfriend/wife and enjoy it, but don't expect anything Oscar worth (come on these are some young actors without a lot of experience.)

    Dullest chick flick EVER!


    I got dragged into watching this "chick flick" in theatres by a couple of girls, but I tried to be positive and open-minded. This movie was so very lifeless that not only did it put me to sleep, the girls with me even thought it was a terrible waste of time. And that's putting it nicely. Seriously, just go ahead and watch the Notebook for the 45th time.

    Would give another half star if I could. Not the biggest fan of love stories but was ok to watch and done well. Sit down with the special person, have some popcorn and enjoy. Watch special features for different ending but not as happy.

    Love this movie!


    I really enjoyed this movie. Having read the book first I was surprised at the changes namely the ending but I know they do that for different reasons. The book ending is the "alternate ending" in the special features. This is one I can watch over and over

    This movie had me at the edge of my seat. I loved the great story line and how dramatic the movie was. I don't want to give anything away for those who have not seen it, but this is a must have to see movie. You will love it.

    With options dwindling, I wanted to get this movie for my wife for Mother's Day. I knew I'd be able to get it online from Best Buy with no fuss. Sure enough, too easy with no hassles.

    Great movie


    This is a movie typical of Nicholas Sparks and along the same lines as The Notebook. A good movie to watch. I cried, as it does have sad parts, but still a great movie and a must see!
