Summary

Romantic drama starring Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum. Following a car accident, Paige suffers such severe trauma that she loses all memory of her marriage to Leo. Her shattered husband must now try and win her heart all over again, a task made harder by Paige's belief that she is still engaged to an old flame.

Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

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.
