Heart wrenching

Aug 10, 2018

The Vow is a romantic movie about a loving married couple, it is starring Channing Tatum as Leo and Rachel McAdams as Paige. In a tragic accident, Paige suffers from a major head injury and goes into a coma, and when she wakes up and doesn’t recognize Leo because she forgot the whole part of when she met Leo and get married. On this note, Leo has to work hard and rebuild their bond and marriage and make Paige fall in loved with him again because she doesn’t know him, and it is going to be hard. I rate this movie 5 out of 5. @BirdieBooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This movie will make you laugh, smile, and cry - repeatedly. Paige and Leo are in love and recently married, until they get into a car accident and Paige awakes with absolutely no memory of her former lover. This forces Leo to fight to win her back by making her fall in love with him all over again; even though she awakes with feelings for her former fiance. This movie is definitely cliche and cheesy at times, yet it tells a very heart-warming story and represents what it means to truly love someone. I would rate this movie 3.5/5 stars and recommend it to those who are in the mood to feel all of their feelings. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Read the book years ago (as a young married) and was very moved. Sorry to read that the movie version is devoid of faith and God, but appreciate the honest reviews. If patrons wish a film honest in its treatment of faith around the subject of profound life-change brought on by injury, I recommend a picture entitled Joni (Worldwide Pictures, 1981?).

I feel bad for him so much. Being "inspired by true events", the story was good and is worth the watch. It contains romantic content that should be kept to married couples only. It also contains language, profanity and sexual content.

The Vow is the heart wrenching story of two people madly in love who are forced apart due to tragedy. When newlyweds, actors Channing Tatum (Leo) and Rachel McAdams (Paige), are driving home, they crash their car causing severe injuries for both. Paige is then put into a coma, and when she wakes up she has no memory of her husband Leo, at all. Paige is then left trying to piece together her memory and identity while Leo fights to win her love once again. This movie brings audiences through the highs and lows of love and questions what it means to be married. Whether you believe that love is something predetermined by fate or just a random fluke, this movie will tug on your heart strings and make you feel again.

After a car accident, Paige (Rachel McAdams) has lost her memories of the past few years and thus does not recognize her husband, Leo (Channing Tatum). In her mind, she is still engaged to her former fiancé Jeremy, and she is still studying law at University. Despite her memory loss, Leo is determined to make his wife fall in love with him once again. This is my favorite romantic comedy, and it's mainly because of its ingenious plot. Every romance movie can be summed up in a sentence: girl meets boy, they fall in love, they deal with some problems, and then everything is back to normal. The problem with these generic romance movies is that they do not reflect a true relationship. Fortunately, The Vow is completely different.

Just ok. Disappointed as this movie is based on a couple who FAITH in God was the emphasis in the book. NO mention of faith or God whatsoever in this movie. Slow and just, well, disappointing. I'm glad I didn't waste $ to see this.

Dull & mechanical mainstream movie. From the perky girl with bad highlights and an apparent brain injury with a set of phony and insecure parents, to the frequently shirtless and buff clueless husband who seemed to adopt the flat-liner style of acting from Keanu Reeves.

Enjoyable, romantic movie! I recommend it!

Really good but sad.

I watched The Vow only because Rachel McAdams is in the cast. It isn't the greatest rom-com or whatever the category is, but it will entertain you.
