During the climatic dinner scene with Savanna after returning for his father's funeral, John is wearing his staff sergeant rank on his shoulder epaulets upside down. (The rocker should be furthest from his neck). Halfway through the scene, it shifts to the correct positioning, and then when he leaves, it is incorrect again. This is the only time the rank on his uniform is applied incorrectly. See more »
I saw "Dear John" at a special screening and I wasn't expecting much. I thought it was going to be a decent romance film. I hoped this movie came halfway as good as "The Notebook". My very low expectations of this film were pretty cynical. But I said Hey, what could happen? And when the movie finished, I was fulfilled. I didn't think it was going to be one of the best romance movies ever and it definitely wasn't. This movie is definitely for couples. The girls will like it cause they can connect with it.I recommend for everyone to see this film. It is touching, okay acting, and it does stick to the book. This film doesn't come close to the "Notebook", but people will like it no matter what. So if you want to buy a sad, romantic film. Then I'd recommend this film.
