Congratulations, Mandy Moore! Five years ago today, the Tangled star and her singer-songwriter hubby Ryan Adams tied the knot...and they are still going strong! The actress commemorated the happy occasion Instagramming a pic of the couple's marriage license with the caption, "The best 5 years....." The duo wed in a private ceremony in Georgia on March 10, 2009, when the groom was 34 and the bride was only 24. The lovebirds have remained pretty low-key about their relationship, but the now 29-year-old definitely isn't shy about professing her love for her man on social media. For his 39th birthday in November, the A Walk to Remember actress posted an adorable photo with her other half »

Nicholas Sparks has created an empire from the hopeful yet tragic loves stories you read on vacation or watch after too many bottles of wine. Like Nancy Meyers, whose films always incorporate droolworthy decor, location is key. And Sparks’ films are almost exclusively set on the coasts of North or South Carolina–a nod to his adopted home of New Bern, Nc. Over the years numerous titles have been adapted from breezy beach reads into sugar-coated love stories with a male and female lead much too beautiful to be of this Earth.
Some stand out: The Notebook has become required viewing for any female and/or person with a beating heart, while Miley Cyrus‘ transformation from Disney girl to Twerk Queen included a pit stop in a role Sparks created just for her. But do all Nicholas Sparks novels-turned-blockbusters include letter-writing or a devastating illness in the final act? »

Live in the moment. In itself, this adage is positive and helpful, but can it go too far? Can people invest themselves so much in the present that it becomes a detriment to their future? This is the question raised by James Ponsoldt’s (Smashed) brilliant love story film, The Spectacular Now. Hit the jump to read my Blu-ray review of the movie. The film opens with the extroverted Sutter (Miles Teller) attempting to crank out a college application essay before getting distracted. Sutter has always been the life of the party. His charismatic ebullience helps him to charm those around him: his friends, his girlfriend, and his employer, played by Bob Odenkirk (Breaking Bad), all the while barely concealing his alcoholism. However, an unexpected breakup leaves him hurt and confused. After an intense bender, he wakes up confused on the lawn of his reserved and insecure classmate Aimee, played »

“I’m crying.” “Dead.” “It’s perfect.” “She’s not who I pictured.” “He’s so cute.”
One might expect those kind of over-the-top reactions from fans when the first look at a superhero or other likely summer blockbuster debuts. (I mean, we all remember where we were when we first saw Heath Ledger as the Joker, right?) But today was a different kind of big summer movie: Fans got the first full-length trailer for the movie adaptation of the beloved Ya book The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

Get the tissue out!Shailene Woodley stars in the new drama, "The Fault in Our Stars," alongside her "Divergent" costar Ansel Elgort -- and it definitely looks like an emotional roller coaster. The film -- based off of John Green's novel -- follows the story of Hazel, who meets Gus in a cancer support group. The two fall in love despite Hazel's diagnosis with a terminal illness. If you loved "A Walk To Remember," then we're sure you'll be a fan of "The Fault in Our Stars" as it follows the same bittersweet love story of two teenagers dealing with the seemingly-unfair cards life's dealt them. Are you excited to see Woodley's latest flick? Sound off below, and check out the amazing trailer above! Read more »

Have you seen "The Vow"? "Safe Haven"? "The Notebook"? "The Lucky One"? "A Walk to Remember"? "The Last Song"? "Dear John"? Then you have already seen the trailer for "Endless Love," the latest weepy romantic melodrama that follows the tortured love affair between two uncommonly attractive young people living in a photogenic location. This one stars Alex Pettyfer and Gabriella Wilde as David Axelrod and Jade Butterfield, two uncommonly attractive young people with made-up names whose unfolding romance consists mainly of twirling through public fountains, staring lovingly at one another on carnival rides, running through grassy meadows and reciting impassioned tear-stained »
