    Oh please. My eyes have almost rolled out of my head over this one.

    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.
    Marcus W Super Reviewer

    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
