An enjoyable romantic comedy (although much more romance than comedy) where one must endure Tatum's awful acting in order to enjoy McAdams' wonderful charm. Some really great moments, great use of music, and above all else a sense of drama that actually felt real (perhaps in knowing the story comes from reality). Certainly exceeded expectations, which were low.
I watched this on an Airplane to kill time with my girlfriend. We came to the conclusion it's a sequence of bad cliches & a mash up of 6 other dating movies released around the same time. But it's good to poke fun at & have a laugh with your significant other if you're on a boring flight
Unfortunately Tatum, albeit attractive to many, is no talented actor and does not have the depth required to make this film memorable. Even worse, McAdams is not a particularly convincing actress either and unfortunately turns an interesting real life story into a wish-I-had-watched-"Notebook"-again-instead.
Dumb, but charmingly inoffensive. Script certainly could've used some work as it felt directionless and somewhat inert. Mostly won over by the leads' chemistry and the few scenes that seemed to be touched by the hands of actual writers (and Jessica Lange).
