Dear John

Genre: Romance
Director: Lasse Hallström
Main Actors: Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried
Rating: PG-13 (Parent appropriate)
Length:108 minutes

IMDb Synopsis:
While John is on leave in his hometown, he finds Savannah, a college student visiting the town. Although love was unexpected, it doesn't mean they didn't find it. With the knowledge of John having to leave for the army, their love still lives, until his re-signs on due to the 9/11 attack. Troubles invade and their love put on hold. One cannot bear it anymore; can the other?

   Dear John is a film adaptation of the novel of the same title by Nicholas Sparks. Two out of the three of us have read the novel and throughout the movie we were saying that it wasn't at all like the book. Certain scenes weren't even in the novel and some were changed so drastically. It should have been kept like the novel.

   Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried have fantastic chemestry. Their relationship is basically every girls dream. Is it cliche? YES. Is it adorable? OH MY GOD YES. Tatum is incredibly attractive and Amanda is the typical indie girl.

   The lack of (there is some though) cheesy romantic music is great! All in all, the movie was cute and that is really all I have to say about it. It was a classic Sparks-Novel-Turned-Movie scenario. If you've seen The Notebook (you should see it if you haven't, it's qiute good.), you know what I mean.78.3%
