Yes, it's formulaic, mostly predictable, and cliche ridden. But there is a real heart buried underneath it all, and I would be lying if I said my eyes didn't get a tad watery at points. It isn't art, but it is passable romance with some deeper themes, and occasional bursts of surprise, drama, and joy rising above it's dullness. It is on part with other movies of this type (ie. Sparks and co), and the movie goers attracted to this sort of thing will get mostly what they paid for.
