The Vow | ★★★★

The plot of "The Vow" is about a young happily married couple whose world is upset in a major way when the wife loses all memory of their life together after an auto accident where she suffers a traumatic brain injury. I had heard about it before I saw it and what I expected was a thoughtful expression about renewed love in the style of that great Harrison Ford flick, "Regarding Henry". What I saw was very different and pretty disappointing.   That said, I think you will like this movie if you enjoy ...

    1) totally clichéd portrayals of traumatic brain injuries,
    2) really superficial selfish characters, and
    3) predictable story lines based on true stories.

Clichéd as it is, I think that the movie is not without merit. I liked Channing Tatum in it  - his character was perhaps the only redeeming aspect of the flick.

Obviously I really didn't care for "The Vow" and, on a scale of ten, I give it ★★★★.


  1. Wasn't very fond of it either.
    Superficial and cliched is the perfect definition.
    I don't watch many movies so this was a big disappointment.

    1. Thanks for the comment Sue. I was surprised that the movie got such good reviews.
