The Vow

I know what you, are thinking? I just couldn't. Not this movie. Why would I want to see it? Valentine's Day? Seriously? Oh, but its full of love, hope and faith. Showing that loving someone isn't always perfect.

How do you look at the girl you love and tell yourself it’s time to walk away?”'ve got a lot of  Channing Tatum to take you through this movie. But this isn't the Notebook. Its not even Dear John. The story is based on a true life experience. Its the story about Paige and Leo who meet in Chicago. The movie honestly plays tribute to the windy city. We see how they met. How enchanted he is by her first smile.

This movie shows all their fun and quirks with each other. How their relationship develops and marriage takes place. And then the tragic thing that happens after a car crash. She can't remember him. Paige doesn't remember being an artist. Yet, she remembers wanting to be a lawyer, her parents she hasn't spoken to in years and the fiancee she practically left at the alter. Its as if Leo has vanished from her. The movie has its twist and turns. How he tries his best to help her find her way back to him. There is the conflict of her parents. Yet secrets lurk, too.

Life’s all about moments of impact, and how they change our lives forever. But what if one day you could no longer remember any of them?
Leo - The Vow

I really enjoyed the supporting cast in this movie. Jessica Lange is always terrific in every second she has on screen. Scott Speedman as the ex who could possibly pick up just where he and Paige left off. Also Dillon Casey as Ryan was a delight being her sister's groom.

It was actually better than I anticipated. Really, it is an enjoyable film. About real love and real situations. Just what would you do in such a memory loss situation of your significant other?
I loved him in this first scene with this hat...when they met.

I vow to love you, and no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find a way back to each other.-Leo

I didn't find the movie sappy, yet I liked watching how they both have to accept the facts that their world has changed after the accident.

STORYLINE: A car accident puts Paige (McAdams) in a coma, and when she wakes up with severe memory loss, her husband Leo (Tatum) works to win her heart again.

The wedding scene was awesome!
