The Best Of Me (2014)
Critic Consensus: At nine films and counting, the line between Nicholas Sparks film fans and detractors is clear, and The Best of Me will change few minds on either side of the divide.

Critic Reviews for The Best Of Me
The melodrama feels so hurried and half-baked that the end result isn't just disappointing. It's borderline infuriating.
The sunlight is golden, the accent's rural (this one's set in Louisiana), people die, sagacious letters are read aloud.
At a certain point ... the coincidences and tragic incidents start to pile up at a startling rate and nothing can be taken seriously.
For all of the eventfulness it jams into a (poorly edited) two-hour package, The Best Of Me ends up extracting the best of absolutely no one.
As a drama, it fails, but the camp value is high, making it more fun than your average would-be weeper. It's silly, but at least it's not a slog.
Audience Reviews for The Best Of Me
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.
