Forever My Girl offers a suitably picturesque placeholder for romance fans between Nicholas Sparks films, but other viewers may end up crying for the wrong reasons.

There is more pleasure to be had in the dwindling returns of CMT's Nashville than in this country soap-opera.
The lead actors are very pretty.
It all feels a little bit off, as if every third scene was cut out randomly, and every camera angle came down to a fourth choice.
Sentimental dreck of the fluffiest order.
"Forever My Girl" is barely a step above a Lifetime movie.
The problem is not the well-worn plot or familiar characters, but the fact that Wolf adds no depth or complication to either that would make the film her own.
It's not a movie I can recommend but I've seen worse.
Despite a familiar story, this romantic drama has its charms.
While undoubtedly a romance, Forever My Girl is also a story of forgiveness, grief, and family. It's a success of its genre.
This good natured film feels like an episode of Nashville mixed with an episode of Friday Night Lights, two television shows I happen to enjoy, in spite of their soapiness.
Real people don't act or talk like any of the characters in this artificial, hot-steaming pile of garbage.

What's a romantic film that deserves to have an extremely low budget and not go any higher than that? What's a romantic film that begins to rehash clichés seen in other romantic films of yesteryear? What's a romantic film that all the crew that worked on it deserved to make a better movie? To answer all these three questions, it's obvious to know the answer to all of this because the review's placement is always the first thing noticeable about reviews. Forever My Girl deserves to be one complete lengthy YouTube video with an extremely low budget put to it. Seeing that as a major YouTube video instead of a major theatrical film could have made Forever My Girl a lot better than what it is even if it doesn't change anything aesthetic which I can hardly see here. Romance has been overused a lot recently and, for a moviegoer who expects to see more, that's no good for those who are not into romance or just noticed how stereotypical it just became. Sure not all romance films are bad and deserved awful treatment, but I'm just saying that films like these are what makes romance look bad. Technically because this is a film released in January, it would make sense for people to create an instant skip for Forever My Girl but just for the heck of people who still go watch movies in theaters during dump months, I consider skipping this one unless you literally are into romance which I literally hope not after this.
