In this pre-Valentines Day week, there is a natural urge to watch sappy romance movies… Okay, maybe I am the only one that has this urge but it is very real just the same.
According to estimates, Dear John made $32.4 million in its opening weekend (i.e. between 2/5 and 2/7). In case you haven’t seen the ads for this movie, here is the trailer:
Could this be the perfect prescription for my hankering to watch a sappy movie? This is a very important decision that must be weighed carefully…
- I love Nicholas Sparks novels and have read almost all of them
- The Notebook is one of my all-time favorite movies
- A Walk to Remember (another famous Nicholas Sparks novel turned into a movie) left me emotionally drained and VERY SAD.
I just can’t decide… Is Dear John as heart wrenching as it looks? I am a lover of great love stories; however, I don’t want to sob without the promise of an upside at the end.
I need your help! If anyone has seen it, let me know what you think. Will the emotional roller coaster lead to happy tears at the end? Let me know!
