Storyline

South Carolina US Army Special operations soldier John is on summer leave from his German base, visiting his widowed father. Being gallant on the pier, he befriends college student Savannah, a college student, and her buddies, a terminal father and his angelic son. John falls in love with Savannah, who diagnoses his beloved, gentle but weird father as mildly autistic. He plans not to sign up again, but 9/11 changes that, and she won't wait idly while their friends desperately need help. Written by KGF Vissers

Horrible Movie
2 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is by far one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Not because of the actors but the plot. You have a decent young man who joined the military and turned his life around. He decided to continue to serve after 9/11 even though he really didn't want to do it. Also, it was a stretch to believe that he didn't know that there was a problem with his father.

You have a extremely selfish woman who decides that she can't deal being alone and marries someone who needs someone to looks after his kid when he dies. How pathetic. I noticed some people liked the book this was adapted from. Get a life, if the book was the same then I feel sorry for you.
