Is Duty Enough Reason To Live A Lie?
A romantic drama about a soldier who falls for a conservative college student while he's home on leave.

"Fulfills its mission...  Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"There's an audience for old-fashioned romance, and Dear John will please most of it.  Connie Ogle, Miami Herald

Editor's Note
Director Lasse Hallström and screenwriter Jamie Linden collaborate to adapt author Nicholas Sparks' novel about a young soldier who falls for an idealistic college girl. Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried) was on spring break when she first met John Tyree (Channing Tatum), who was home on temporary leave. For the smitten soldier it was practically love at first sight. Over the course of the next seven years, when each deployment seemed more treacherous than the last, the love letters that Savannah sent to John were one of the only things that kept him going. However, those loving and heartfelt correspondences would ultimately yield consequences that neither the brave soldier nor his one true love could have ever foreseen.

Expert Review Dear John - DVD Review
By: MommyBKnowsBest Reviews
Published on: 10/21/2010 5:48 PM
Will love survive the distance in this 2010 Nicholas Sparks novel-adapted movie, Dear John? In the film, soldier John Tyree (Channing Tatum) becomes romantic with the sweetly, Southern Savannah Lynne Curtis (Amanda Seyfried)and our country's involvement in the war in Afghanastan changes their plans for love. Although I did not read Dear John the novel, I don't feel like I was in the dark or should have read the book prior. Dear John the film, in the middle of the story rather than the beginning or the end. I liked the "twist" although it took me a little while to realize it was the the full review

Professional Reviews

New York Times
"[T]his story of interrupted passion takes on a ripe, summery glow....[I]t delivers an effective, pleasing dose of pure sentiment and vicarious heartache."

Hollywood Reporter
"DEAR JOHN does center on a Dear John letter, but it takes a few unexpected paths." 02/02/2010

3 stars out of 5 -- "Tatum delivers a decent turn as a former brawler, saved by military discipline and bowled over by a girl..." 05/01/2010

"Director Lasse Hallstrom and team takes full advantage of the widescreen format and showcase the beautiful South Carolina coast..." 05/24/2010

The New York Times 7 of 10
Go ahead and cry. You know you want to. Why else would you read a book by -- or, in keeping with our purposes here, see a movie based on a book by -- Nicholas Sparks?...Dear John, the latest attempt to bring his warm, earnest, therapeutic sensibility to the screen, falls in the upper middle range of Sparks film adaptations. If it lacks the epic sweep and extravagant emotionalism of The Notebook -- Oh, Ryan and Rachel! Oh, James and Gena! -- it also is free of the creepy piety and watered-down eros of A Walk to Remember. In the hands of director Lasse Hallstrom, a blue-chip hack with a sure touch even when he's slumming for a paycheck, this story of interrupted passion takes on a ripe, summery glow...A lot of it succeeds. Mr. Tatum, in his movie roles so far -- A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints and Fighting, both directed by Dito Montiel, are the best -- has shown himself to be an actor of narrow range. But his potential is evident, and his magnetism is undeniable. He is shrewd enough to stay within his comfort zone, and able to make the most of his interactions with more nimble performers, like Ms. Seyfried, a resourceful and engaging young actress industriously turning herself into a movie star...Their likability is the movie's greatest strength -- how can you not root for such nice kids to overcome whatever obstacles life throws in their paths? -- and also something of a limitation. John and Savannah are too thinly drawn to sustain a great love story. Mr. Hallstrom and the screenwriter, Jamie Linden, are careful to respect the vague, whispery tones of Mr. Sparks's writing. (They do, however, change the book's ending in a way that both deepens and blunts its impact.)...But a full measure of romantic complication or psychological depth is not what a movie like this -- or the book it comes from -- is for. Dear John carefully distills selected elements of human experience and reduces them to a sweet and digestible syrup. It may not be strong medicine, but it delivers an effective, pleasing dose of pure sentiment and vicarious heartache. - A.O. Scott
