Nicholas Sparks strikes again with yet another film based on a misty-eyed novel about tormented seaside romance in the romanticised American South.

To this writer, it suggests one of those evasive US TV commercials for incontinence treatments or rheumatism therapies.

Unfortunately Hough is not really up to the part and Duhamel isn't much better than a nice-looking block of wood.

There's a good twist, the young leads are appealing and anyone who enjoys Sparks' sincere storytelling will enjoy it, even though it's overlong.

A cliched romantic thriller by numbers.

This romantic film has a few too many creepy elements in it. Granted, the creepy elements aren't as creepy as those in the popular 'Twilight' series, but they are creepy enough to upset the whole mood of the movie.

As ever with a Sparks story, the action takes place in a sugary vision of small-town America that does not correspond with the real world at any point.

Almost nothing happens for long stretches before a plot "twist" so obvious that only the dull-witted could fail to see it coming.

I like to imagine that Nicholas Sparks realized he couldn't write yet another prequel story about how the people whose photos come with the picture frames fell in love. So he figured he'd try a thriller!

Watchable, beautifully shot and nicely paced Nicholas Sparks romance, enlivened by strong performances and a decent amount of chemistry between the two leads, though the script takes a nosedive into unintentionally hilarious territory in the final act.

The very definition of a stinker.

The initial air of mystery dissipates like a fart in a lift that everyone should be too embarrassed to acknowledge.

It's compelling stuff, for all the wrong reasons. and reaches a barking apex of doolally tapness when one of the minor characters reveals herself to be a charitable ghost.

The plot holes are so big that you can drive a bus through them and you'll come out of the cinema asking 'But why didn't...?' about many things.

[The] final reel ... descends into the Vortex of Bonkers, delivering fits of unexpected laughter.

Sudsily romantic, sometimes unintentionally hilarious, and bound to be a hit.

Hallström is an old pro at navigating this kind of undemandingly dramatic yarn and does a pretty fine job with Sparks' story.

The whole film is mild until the end. You won't believe it, but it's also not worth believing.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
