Thanks to the scenery, the performances and a rich vein of unintentional silliness, The Longest Ride feels a whole lot shorter than it is.

Devotees of author Nicholas Sparks's work will no doubt be delighted with The Longest Ride's bonanza offering: two militantly preposterous love stories for the price of one!
June 18, 2015
Sometimes it's better just to hold your hands up and welcome movies as cheesily inoffensive as this.
June 18, 2015
Shamelessly sentimental.
June 18, 2015
So soaked in Americana you feel as if you've been repeatedly vomited upon by a bald eagle.

One of those rare films whose porn version will have the same title.

It's no The Notebook, and when that's a seriously meant criticism, you're in trouble.
June 18, 2015
It's not called The Longest Ride for nothing. At 2 hours plus it's the lengthiest Sparks movie yet - after about an hour of snooze-inducing predictability you're just desperate for it to end.
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.
June 15, 2015
Blandly photographed and unexceptionally acted, The Longest Ride is a typically generic love story from the Sparks production line.

Cloying but satisfying.

Robertson and Eastwood are appealing and photogenic, but their romance is callow and trivial compared to Huston and Chaplin's.
May 25, 2015
The sappiest heartland hokum squeezable from the novelist's formula bottle, this adaptation drip-drip-drips into a well of clichd sentiment, its last big manufactured teardrop saved for the perfectly ridiculous ending.
May 4, 2015
The film still comes with the cheesy trademarks that you'd expect with a romantic drama such as this.
May 1, 2015
... doesn't disguise its efforts to peddle shamelessly sentimental melodrama to the author's legions of fans who make each successive film almost immune to criticism.
April 17, 2015
Sparks must be doing something right.
April 16, 2015
[The cast members] help make the inherently flavourless content that follows the initial meet-cute easier to consume -- though never to swallow whole.
April 14, 2015
The Longest Ride is a predictable romantic drama, with bad dialogue and a romance lacking the strength to be effective on screen, but in the end, it's just another Nicholas Sparks adaptation.
April 14, 2015
At the end, the movie is predictable and terribly tedious.
