One of the best [Nicholas] Sparks' adaptations ever.

It's a tried-and-true formula that works, and given the right romantic pairing, works wonders. And admit it, you love it.

So much of these kind of movies depends on the connection between the lead couple and these two had it.

And like their predecessors, they and their co-stars Oona (granddaughter of Charlie) Chaplin and Jack (nephew of Anjelica) Huston succeed in making The Longest Ride enjoyable enough.

The Longest Ride did not convert me to being a fan of romance films, but it did show me that I can enjoy parts of one.

Scott Eastwood's less mysterious than dad. Clint's got more warrior, Scott's got more lover. Nevertheless! Scott's very Clinty! 'Ride's' the anti-'Fifty Shades of Grey.'

Its theme of cherishing love when it comes your way couldn't be blunter, but on the whole this is one of the better Sparks movies, with even a neat twist in the tale to reward those who last the distance.

For once, a movie based on a Nicholas Sparks book appears to be populated by relatively realistic approximations of human beings dealing with relationship conflict in realistic ways.

Like all of Sparks's stories it's corny as hell, but there's an unabashed, old-fashioned charm that gradually warms the cockles and moistens the eye.

Thanks to the scenery, the performances and a rich vein of unintentional silliness, The Longest Ride feels a whole lot shorter than it is.
June 18, 2015
Sometimes it's better just to hold your hands up and welcome movies as cheesily inoffensive as this.
June 16, 2015
Sparks' usual mixture of female self-sacrifice, sensitive tough guys, unlikely twists and frequent dashes to the hospital. It's a familiar cocktail but it packs a real punch.

However contrived this tenth Sparks-to-screen becomes, the emotions and chemistry outweigh the bull.

Cloying but satisfying.
April 17, 2015
Sparks must be doing something right.
April 11, 2015
The Longest Ride is pretty darn tolerable - and sometimes even enjoyable - not just for fans but also for regular people who are, you know, cynical.

A Sparks movie will never completely want for melodrama, but it's nice to find one where the melo- is a bit more mellow.
April 10, 2015
The Longest Ride has as much bull as the 10 previous Sparks adaptations. This is one of the few you can ride for longer than eight seconds.

Look, it's easy to laugh at this stuff - that's part of the game, in fact. To buy into these movies, you have to buy into the silliness. But The Longest Ride, for all its ridiculousness, comes by its emotions honestly.
