My Comment

This is not a bad movie. But it’s not a great film either. I didn’t think it was going to be one of the best romance movies ever and it definitely wasn’t. It is touching, okay acting and definitely a sweet one. I wish that there are more scenes between John and his father Mr. Tyree, ’cause it will make me cry a bucket. Haha! Well, it’s a love story Savannah and John after all. For those who love to watch sad romantic story, have a try!

    It's fab that you've gotten the chance to watch the movie! As for me, I still haven't read nor watch it but very much looking forward to it. Has been awhile since I've a dash of romance book lately, so perhaps it's about time to read book by Sparks!
