The Best Of Me (2014)
Critic Consensus: At nine films and counting, the line between Nicholas Sparks film fans and detractors is clear, and The Best of Me will change few minds on either side of the divide.

News & Interviews for The Best Of Me
Critic Reviews for The Best Of Me
The melodrama feels so hurried and half-baked that the end result isn't just disappointing. It's borderline infuriating.
You know what to expect: a star-crossed romance for lovers from different worlds, kisses in the rain, moonlight swims, fateful separations and the tragic death of at least one leading character.
The Best of Me's chemistry lives in the idea of a second chance at first love - would you take it if you could? - but not between the actors, unfortunately.
I would be amazed to hear even the most ardent Sparks fan defend it as anything more than rubbish.
The Best of Me turns into a half-baked dramatic thriller, with violent confrontations, gunfights, plenty of nasty characters and one big scary action scene.
Audience Reviews for The Best Of Me
The film will have the occasional charm and drama to please audiences, but is virtually a clichéd attempt at another romantic novel adaptation. The Best of Me presents anything and everything you come to expect from a Nicholas Sparks story, but it's ultimately brought down from a poor execution and bland script. 2.5/5
Exactly what you would expect from a Nicholas Sparks book adaptation. I found the whole story wholly unbelievable, especially the ending.
It's not a film I hated, instead it uncovered a whole new level of disbelief that a film can be this terrible.
