Dear John

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…

Pros:

Cons:

  • 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!

    Hi Carli! Your blog popped up on my facebook! I saw this movie last week and while it is very sad in some spots there are also great happy moments and it has a promising ending! Channing Tatum is an excellent actor in it as well. I would definitely recommend it.

    Hi Carli……I saw this on Valentine weekend. It was sweet, passionate and very romantic! There were some ups and downs, but you won’t leave heartbroken! 🙂
