The Vow Reviews

February 19, 2012
( ... ) a clean-cut, modern drama with an unashamedly old-fashioned emphasis on the nature of true love.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 17, 2012
An earnest and occasionally touching romantic drama that sweeps aside the devastating narrative potential of a traumatic brain injury to traffic in a more benign depiction of amnesia.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 17, 2012
It's got a half-baked script full of holes, villains written in bold type and, even though it's based on a true story, concocted banality.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4

Look for more than robustly-executed hokum here, and you look in vain.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
February 16, 2012
It's not really cinematic in scale, but it is made with heart and emotionally it should please the target audience of young women - and romantic young men.
February 16, 2012
Neither as formulaic nor as predictable as its constituent parts may suggest.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
February 16, 2012
Amnesia, heartbreak and romance make for a too-familiar Valentine's Day entertainment
February 16, 2012
Anyone who likes logic in their romance may be disappointed.

February 15, 2012
It's nice to see a romantic drama that absolutely isn't trying to rely on smut or the inexplicable pulling power of an actor like Adam Sandler to get by.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 15, 2012
The film's Nicholas Sparks-style sweet nothings extract as many eye rolls as "aws"; it's a box of cheap chocolates for someone you just met and you're not really sure you care for.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
February 15, 2012
The germs of a few good ideas reside within the bowels of The Vow, but the movie is too preoccupied with pushing chick-flick buttons to cultivate them.
Full Review | Original Score: C
February 14, 2012
The Vow is a welcome antidote to cynicism, and a bracing tonic that proves love hasn't disappeared from the film experience completely.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
February 14, 2012
A movie of more depth than I expected. Love stories always find an audience.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
February 13, 2012
The Vow never veers far from its heart-on-sleeve leanings, particularly with Tatum's overbearing voice-over, but McAdams is typically reliable.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 13, 2012
Movies don't come any brawnier than Safe House, and all that chaotic mayhem eventually beats the plot to a pulp. By the fadeout, viewers are equally pummeled by a series of action set pieces punctuated by grim whispers of suspicion.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
February 13, 2012
Like a less successful version of The Notebook, this works as an undemanding date movie; just don't expect much more from it.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 12, 2012
This is made for the ladies looking for romance on a Hallmark holiday. It just happens to have a lot more talent than you'd expect from this sort of thing.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
February 11, 2012
The Vow is a painfully humourless affair that I expect to have forgotten by the time this review appears.
February 11, 2012
Since we know exactly where 'The Vow' has to end up, it becomes an inexorable progression from the intriguing to the tedious.
