...the film ultimately earns a place for itself within the pantheon of effectively stirring romantic tearjerkers.

While it may be discerned as more a vehicle for the actors' reunion than a creative gem, the contributive factor to its attractiveness is the chemistry of the match.

While not for the cynical or hard-of-heart, Nights in Rodanthe is something of a rarity: a film that puts its characters first.

Something about Diane Lane's performance, especially in that third act, really got me involved in the film emotionally.

You will get exactly what you are expecting. More or less, in any event. More in the case of the film's heart; less in the case of the last reel, when the storyline and execution dissolves into buckets of schmaltz.

The word formulaic doesn't quite cover it, but our two leads just about hold their heads above a tidal surge of sappy plotting, contrived dialogue and choppy editing.

There is nothing new here - but taking the film on face value, everything that needs to be done right is spot on.

It ticks the right boxes to be a hit - the tear jerking aspect being key to the word of mouth - but it's a movie that rarely breaks out of it's average confines.

I'd hoped the lathered-up romanticism of Nights in Rodanthe would stop me from thinking about the awfulness of what's going on in the world. It didn't; it compounded it.

It's like The Bridges Of Madison County with more shouting, only not nearly as good. No surprises whatsoever, but nice scenery, attractive stars and another credible, affecting performance from Lane that hoiks it up an extra star.

Richard Gere's latest is the sort of weepy that gets shown on daytime TV in between the over-50s life insurance ads.

A tad clunky and sappy and yes, even hokey. But, the picture still works. I was always engaged, I was always interested in what happened next, and I was always entertained.

Another sappy soap opera for Nicholas Sparks fans satisfied by panoramic seascapes offset intermittently by lingering interludes of dysfunctional strangers locking lips and loins.

Despite stretches of credulity in the plot, the on-screen chemistry between Gere and Lane carries the movie.
