Our Score
Action man Channing Tatum revisits Dear John territory here to once again show off his more sensitive side. The GI Joe star plays Leo, whose wife Paige (Rachel McAdams) suffers severe head trauma in a car crash and loses all memory of her time with her husband. So he resolves to woo her again, despite opposition from Paige's parents (Jessica Lange and Sam Neill, both underused) and a former flame (Scott Speedman). This three-tissue tear-jerker is slickly made and pushes all the right emotional buttons. It also helps that the two leads are attractive ones. However, the more cynical may baulk at the movie's schmaltzy manipulativeness, its pretentious voice-over and, truth to tell, its innate dullness. But for anyone who's easily pleased and likes a good old sob, The Vow is just the ticket.

Concluded.
