Trivia

Channing Tatum revealed in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that he wore an oversized prosthetic for the scene where he walks naked in front of Rachel McAdams character in order to get a realistic reaction out of her. This was apparently the take that was used in the final cut. See more »

Sweet story, time well spent, but I'd recommend waiting to rent it.
2 February 2012 | by PomeradoEagleSee all my reviews

Today I had the opportunity to see a preview of The Vow with my wife.

We both enjoyed the movie, her a little more than me. I was very surprised to learn that this movie is based on actual events, perhaps this was why it was not just another amnesia movie. Therefore not entirely predictable. The struggles seemed a little abbreviated, but genuine. Leo (the husband) had a noticeable lack of grief, even in the most down point.

This is a great example of a couple facing a great difficulty, particularly a husband's love. But it failed to truly pull deep emotion out of me (and I can get choked up pretty easily).

This is appropriate for most teen and up audiences. All intimation of sex are between a married couple. There is full backside nudity of Tatum Channing, but it fits appropriately in the movie.

My last "negative" point is that it seemed slow, particularly at the beginning. Maybe that's because I watched Mission Impossible last night, but nonetheless it sure felt like it.

I would certainly recommend seeing the movie, but it probably will be just as good as a Blu-ray instead of paying $10+ for a movie ticket.
