"Dear John", a sappy, romantic love story based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks, directed by Lasse Hallstorm, is a film that will leave you wanting more at the beginning and crying by the end. The movie begins as John (Channing Tatum) having a rough childhood with his father. John is on leave from the Army when he meets Savannah (Amanda Seyfried) after retrieving her purse from the ocean. They quickly become more than just friends. John must depart again to go overseas and he promises Savannah that he will marry her when he completes his deployment. When John was overseas, Savannah and he would write each other letters back and forth telling each other what was going on in each other's life at the time. John is excited to come back home to Savannah, but because of 9/11 John feels the duty to reenlist in the Army. After a few years of being away from each other, Savannah writes one finally letter to John, it starts with Dear John and ends with a simple good-bye. Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried make this movie seen real. Tatum potrays the role John perfectly; having a muscular guy be and an Army solider is how the audience usually imagines how a solider would be. Seyfried is a beautiful women falling for a solider, mostly an everyday life thing for some people, makes herself a secure person wanting to fulfill her dreams. Their chemistry shows the love for one another and makes the audiences want more and will never have them take their eyes off the screen. The movie and the book of "Dear John" are similar but some of the places were different. The story is about people sharing a moment in time and bringing something to each other's life. The movie is about a bumpy road to get to love and how enduring love can overcome those pitfall moments in life. So there really are two different endings. The book is more of a realistic ending but the movie has more of the Hollywood ending, the happy ever after ending. I personally love happy ever after endings. "Dear John" is on of my all-time favorite movies since 2010. The film is the perfect romance film, drama war film, and romantic drama that I have ever seen in my life time. The movie brings in a real life twist to a natural heartbreak that always happens in your life sometimes, also it will make you wish you were on the set while they were filiming to get the whole inside touch on the whole movie. I would personally give this movie 4 hearts out of 5!

This was a good movie. The reason for four stars is because the end was disappointing in my opinion. Other than that it was good.

This was a great adaptation from a book to a movie. I really think that Channing Tatum was a little stiff,but it did not detract from the message of the movie. I have to say I thought Amanda Seyfried did a good job in this roll and she was very believable as the female lead. I Love,love,love Nicholas Sparks and his ability to tell a love story that is not without the trials and pain that exist in real life. I thought it was a great portrayal of John's father, and his experience in dealing with Asperger's syndrome while raising a son alone. It was wonderful to see a realistic, yet positive situation of someone dealing with the affects of autism. Overall a great love story with its share of tears. Worth seeing!
