It was two weeks that would change their lives forever. Soon after John (Channing Tatum - Public Enemies, G.I. Joe) and Savannah (Amanda Seyfried - Mamma Mia, TV's Big Love) fall madly in love, their relationship is put on hold. With one leaving to complete his service, and the other to complete her college education, they pass the time by exchanging a continuous stream of love letters, until they can be reunited permanently a year later. But when war breaks out, their separation is extended indefinitely. Will their relationship survive the greatest test of all: the test of time? Based on the bestselling novel from the author of The Notebook, Dear John is a timeless romance that will warm your heart.
Lorsque John Tyree, un soldat en permission, et Savannah Curtis, une étudiante idéaliste, se rencontrent sur une plage, c'est le coup de foudre. Bien qu'appartenant à deux mondes différents, une passion absolue les réunit pendant deux semaines. John repart ensuite en mission et Savannah retourne à l'université, mais à travers leurs lettres enflammées, leur amour ne fait que grandir...
Dear John brings together a totally believable and charming cast--the lovely Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum--with a tried-and-true romantic plot that will have a new generation of movie fans and lovers reaching for their hankies. Director Lasse Hallström (The Cider House Rules, What's Eating Gilbert Grape, My Life as a Dog) again proves his deft handling of young actors portraying feelings and emotions far beyond their years. His direction, along with the stellar performances of the cast, will have Dear John lingering in the memory long after viewing. Tatum plays a soldier home on leave (the John of the title), when he meets Savannah (Seyfried), a college student. The two may not have been looking for love, but love finds them anyway. Then the September 11 attacks happen, and John is torn between love for Savannah and duty to country. Because this is an adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel, there will be drama and heartbreak, and Dear John doesn't tread lightly in this emotional battlefield. But there's a delicacy in the performances, especially Seyfried's, which transcends the almost-cookie-cutter character outlines given to the actors. Also worthy of mention are supporting cast members Richard Jenkins (as John's quiet, autistic dad) and Henry Thomas (as Tim, a single dad who goes to nearly impossible lengths to avoid breaking the heart of his son). See Dear John with an open heart, and know that it will be deeply touched. --A.T. Hurley

The movie tells the story of two young people who fall in love during a summer at the beach and then are separated by the war in 2001. They correspond by letters and develop a romance that spans the continents.
The acting and chemistry between the two leads is great and the audience is really drawn into their story. However, the plot takes a very strange, illogical turn that it seems was supposed to be a surprising twist. While it is surprising, it also doesnt seem to fit in with the rest of the movie. And as always with Nicholas Sparks, there is heartbreak and sadness; however, the "sad" parts in the movie did not tug at my heartstrings as much as in some of his other movies.
Overall, although the movie was fun to watch and definitely is a chick flick, the strange plot turn near the end rendered the movie confusing and unrelatable. Personally, I left the movie saying "huh?" To date, "The Notebook" and "A Walk to Remember" still remain untouchable as the top Nicholas Sparks movies.
without said, i actually liked this movie. i have never read the novel, and probably never will if im being completely honest. the only reason i bought this movie is that i have a tiny crush on the male lead ever since watching him Step Up.
The movie unfortunatly does potray him as the whipped one, but in such a lovable strong way, you cant help but love him. off and on in the movie you will probably have the desire to slap the female lead, but i believe that is what makes the movie so great. it sucks you in with its intensity, making you take sides then feeling guilty as the plot proceeds.
i dont want to give away the storline, so my advice is, watch the movie. i doubt you will be disappointed, and even if you end up saying the movie sucked, i can bet at some point, you were emotionally envolved, hating and wanting to comfort some character in the movie.

We have seen this movie and enjoyed it, especially the soundtrack. However the DVD we ordered from Amazon was faulty - it gets to approx 'chapter' 27, and then stops. Read morePublished on Jan. 28 2011 by Amber G.
