Movie review: "The Vow"

I'm a sucker for chick flicks so of course I had to see "The Vow"on opening night...right?.. Well.. I didn't HAVE to, but you get the point...
So... I must say that I was slightly disappointed by this movie, which seemed very promising based on the trailers... I mean.. a hot guy and a pretty girl, madly in love and a dramatic accident in the mix... what could go wrong??...
Unfortunately with this movie, many things were wrong..
First off, Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum DO NOT make a good couple.. there's no chemistry between them whatsoever, which made the movie that much worse..
The story was cute but it was too slow paced and the characters didn't seem to have any substance... Also, the issue with the girl's memory loss was a bit unrealistic and not very well developed...as a matter of fact, none of the subplots were explored at all...
Yes, there were cute parts and awesome scenes (i.e. Channing Tatum's perfect naked butt shot), but the movie was lacking "something" and I feel like it could have been so much better...
Ultimately, the movie's message is a good one.. basically "no matter what happens, you are who you are and your essence will never change"..
I give this one 2.5 out of 5 stars and I think that's pretty fair!

Ah I hate to hear this! I was so excited to see it. Might just wait for it to come out on DVD now.
