The Vow 2012 film movie wallpaper bed love sex scene

Rated: U
Genre: Drama, romance
Running Time: 1 Hour 44 Minutes
Director: Michael Sucsy
Cast: Rachel McAdams, Channing Tatum and Sam Neill

Synopsis: “A newlywed couple recovers from a car accident that puts the wife in a coma. Waking up with with severe memory loss, her husband endeavors to win her heart again” (Sony Pictures Releasing International).

Verdict: Kudos for making the girl beside me cry but it doesn’t change the fact that it’s just another sobby chick flick that’s not even as good as The Notebook (2004; which also stars Rachel McAdams) or 50 First Dates (2004). Although The Vow is based on an inspiring true story, the utterly predictable flow of the film makes it seem like they ripped off the play from many Asian TV drama series with the similar cliche plot (that’s used over and over again in Hong Kong TVB series). Such simple but powerful tale requires a way better script that this. The film is so frustratingly unengaging to the point that I logged on to 9gag on my mobile during the movie. Channing Tatum, you can go back to acting in action films now; you’ve got “nothing to do here”.

Moral of the story: Don’t park the car in the middle of the road to fuck.

Rating: 1 / 5

The president is Obama but the characters in the movie ain’t got Facebook?

It’s an accident. That’s it? What happens to the driver who crashes into them? And why couldn’t he stop his vehicle? Paige (McAdams) may not be curious but as a viewer, I have the right to know!

The sad guitar scene: Leo (Tatum) is a music producer but I can tell that he doesn’t seem like he really knows how to handle a guitar. Why emphasise such an important scene with the character playing the guitar when the actor couldn’t really play?

Worst quote: “It’s not like you’ve never seen (me naked) before.” For fucks sake, Leo. Don’t you remember that Paige has lost all her memory about you? And Paige, since you responded that with a smile, does that mean you agree? You only regained memory about his penis? If you weren’t so horny in the car, you might not had ended up in the accident.
