The Vow is one of rom-com date film that will be enjoyed with your partner
6 August 2012 | by ketgup83See all my reviews

What happens when the love of your life forgets you completely and you need to remind the moments you have shared with the person. Vow, based on a true story, was decent rom-com which had some fine moments to sustain you through the entire film coupled by good performances and good storyline.

Leo is happily married to Paige and they are having the great time together until they meet with fatal accident and life turns topsy when Paige goes into Coma and loses her memory, including her husband. Leo must must convince her and remind her of all the beautiful moments they spent together in order to bring his wife back.

Directed by Michael Sucsy , The Vow is the perfect date movie in the recent times. The story is based on the true events which makes it more interesting and admiring. Right from the beginning till the end , the film keeps you entertained and that is the highlight of the movie. Though it loses steam in between , but gathers momentum at the later reel . Direction wise , Sucsy has done a good job by extracting good performances by the lead cast. Screenplay is just fine getting ample scope for improvement. Kim and Krickitt Carpenter wrote the book entitled The Vow about their marriage that was interrupted by memory loss. Production design is good with good background score gelling well with the film. Coming to performances , Channing Tatum and Rachael Mcadams are easily one of the sought out actors of today's generation. They played their part with utmost conviction.

The Vow is one of rom-com date film that will be enjoyed with your partner with blend of good food coupled with romantic eve. Good 3.5/5
