The Vow Review

"The Vow is one of the best romance movies released in recent years with great cast and uplifting story."

The Vow is about a couple Leo (Channing Tatum) and Paige (Rachel McAdams) that are madly in love and are in a terrible car accident. Leo makes it out fine but she ended up with a bad head injury and she lost all recent memories from within the last 4 years including Leo and her marriage. Leo sets out to help her see the love they share and never gives up on getting her back.

I will admit I am a sucker for a lot of romance movies from all different backgrounds like Titanic, While You Were Sleeping, and The Notebook. So naturally I wouldn't mind seeing The Vow with my amazing girlfriend and get major boyfriend points. I've heard a lot about the movie from friends that all say it will make you cry and its so adorable. So we had to find out what all the fuss is about and i will say we were kind of shocked we didn't cry like everyone said we would. Sure it was sad, but the story has more of uplifting side to bad thing that happened and it's really quite nice to see that instead of a movie that just does sad things to get tears from the audience. The Vow has heart in it.

The casting of Rachel McAdams as Paige is every girls dream because of her previous romance film role in The Notebook (I know she is my girlfriends favorite actress because of it). She is the best woman for the job by a long shot. She brings a certain lovable quality to Paige that makes you really like her and can see her love for Leo and frightfulness when she is brought into an environment she isn't familiar with anymore. Although, there are sometimes in the film that you just want to tell her she is doing something wrong and yell "just remember already, Leo needs you!".

Leo is played by Channing Tatum to some of the girls liking from back in Dear John. I'm not the biggest fan of Channing because he isn't the greatest actor around but if he's hot and has a six pack then he's perfect for a romance movie. He has really proven himself in this film as an actor. He still has some learning to do but you still feel all the emotions he feels in the film along with him. He is a man of great heart and will never give up on his wife because of true love and his vows.

The title "The Vow" is pretty great considering that in his vow for her is really just foreshadowing events that will happen later. He said "I vow to love you, and no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find a way back to each other." Now, that is pretty eerie and dead on. He really did keep trying like crazy going from embarrassing himself to ruining his career. It's crazy to imagine that this could happen. Leo is every girls dream guy that will never give up on the girl he loves. I really do believe it would be hard but when you just love a girl to death than I would do whatever it took to get her back because she is my home and always will be.

The Vow isn't the best romance film ever made but by far isn't the worst. It is very charming and great story about love and the search to find it again. If I would've cried it would for sure would be getting an A but I must give it a
