The Vow Reviews

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.

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.

Thanks Mr. Screenwriter, but I don't need emotional subtitling.

If you drag your loved one to see it, be advised: you will owe that person big-time.

Falling in love all over again...but missing a little magic.

The Vow makes the least of its concept, refusing to acknowledge that a love need not be perfect to merit holding on to.
February 10, 2012
In the very first shot, two deliriously happy young lovebirds -- Leo (Channing Tatum) and Paige (Rachel McAdams) -- exit a movie theater. Don't give us any ideas.

The two stars look dewy and glossy and unexceptional, bound together less by chemistry than by the ministrations of a hard-working costume designer.

February 10, 2012
Not everything in it works, but the lack of reliance on easy answers earns it enough credibility points for a passing grade.

You want to care. You really do. But five writers and director Michael Sucsy just don't give you enough reasons to give a rip about these people.

What a shame that the finished product-which comes after numerous attempts to create an effective screenplay over the past decade-is so lackluster.

If the Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore chuckler 50 First Dates had been recast as a romantic drama and produced by the Oprah Winfrey Network, The Vow might have been the result.

The entire plot hinges on an impulsive moment of colossal stupidity.
February 10, 2012
Predictable romantic drama lacks depth.

Come on, guys; at least cast Clint Howard or someone equally repellant as Leo. Make her work for it a little.

'The Vow' is inspired by a true and wonderful story, but that doesn't make the fictionalized version any less ridiculous.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
February 10, 2012
There are unintentional echoes of 'Total Recall' in Rachel McAdams' storyline, which I suppose would make Channing Tatum her Kuato.

Can I just listen to 'Unchained Melody,' again?

Tatum is unusually expressive; Speedman, both hiss-worthy and sympathetic. But McAdams is the real draw.
