Thanks Mr. Screenwriter, but I don't need emotional subtitling.

If you drag your loved one to see it, be advised: you will owe that person big-time.

Falling in love all over again...but missing a little magic.

The Vow makes the least of its concept, refusing to acknowledge that a love need not be perfect to merit holding on to.

In the very first shot, two deliriously happy young lovebirds -- Leo (Channing Tatum) and Paige (Rachel McAdams) -- exit a movie theater. Don't give us any ideas.

The two stars look dewy and glossy and unexceptional, bound together less by chemistry than by the ministrations of a hard-working costume designer.

Not everything in it works, but the lack of reliance on easy answers earns it enough credibility points for a passing grade.

You want to care. You really do. But five writers and director Michael Sucsy just don't give you enough reasons to give a rip about these people.

What a shame that the finished product-which comes after numerous attempts to create an effective screenplay over the past decade-is so lackluster.

If the Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore chuckler 50 First Dates had been recast as a romantic drama and produced by the Oprah Winfrey Network, The Vow might have been the result.

The entire plot hinges on an impulsive moment of colossal stupidity.

Come on, guys; at least cast Clint Howard or someone equally repellant as Leo. Make her work for it a little.

'The Vow' is inspired by a true and wonderful story, but that doesn't make the fictionalized version any less ridiculous.

There are unintentional echoes of 'Total Recall' in Rachel McAdams' storyline, which I suppose would make Channing Tatum her Kuato.

Tatum is unusually expressive; Speedman, both hiss-worthy and sympathetic. But McAdams is the real draw.

McAdams can turn up the charisma and make (almost) any role grounded and watchable, even multiple ones involving time travel and memory loss. Tatum is like a very handsome steak.

As usual, Channing Tatum looks sweet and dull and, in most scenes, slightly confused.

You want a vow? How about: 'Honey, I swear, if you ever drag me to another piece of Hallmark Hall of Fame schlock selling itself as a bona fide feature, Valentine's Day or not ... it's over.'
