Dear John

I have to admit, I have heard horrible reviews about the movie Dear John - From the best-selling author of The Notebook starring Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried

My cousin Kate spent the night last night and we decided what the hell, we'll rent it and judge it ourselves.

Well, we watched it and the verdict is in.   I adored the movie.  I thought it was well thought out, romantic, dramatic and not predictable. 
That's a pet peeve about movies for me, when I can tell exactly how things will pan out.

It didn't hurt that Channing Tatum was seriously attractive and adorable through out the movie.

Their true love reminded me a lot of Kris and I and it seriously made me feel grateful that he his not in the service.  I just can not imagine living every day fearing for his life with minimal contact.

Although, I was pissed off at Amanda's Character for the choices she made, when your completely hopelessly in love, you would wait forever.
But it all came together at the end to make a lot of sense.

I will totally vouch for this movie.  Just goes to show, reviews are personal judgments.


  1. Aww, glad you liked it, I too have been wanting to see it<3

  2. I loved Dear John. Have you read the book? The ending is different. Channing Tatum is HOT!

  3. If you got pissed off with her choices in the movie.. then don't read the book hahaha.. I hater her in the movie!! I mean.. WHY!!!?? lol .. I don't wanna say anything else because I don't want to spoil it for anyone.. but all I wanted to scream at Amanda was WHY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I haven't seen it yet, but it does sound like a rental for when I'm home alone and I need a good cry!

  5. I liked the movie as well and again was annoyed at her decisions...

  6. It probably got back reviews because it SUCKS compared to the book! I actually was disappointed with the movie. Read the book!

  7. Sorry to disagree.. but I hated it! I thought he was an unlikeable character. And it wasn't a big happy ending. Humph.

  8. i completely agree with your review! i was so angry with savannah's decisions but i really liked the movie.

    plus it was great to see channing tatum. oh how i love him
