Don’t read the book if you want to see and/or like this movie…
I’ll try to make this short and sweet, like the two weeks the two characters spent together before all hell broke loose:
If you read the book, lower your expectations. If you haven’t read the book,…well, you can raise your expectations just a bit higher.
I was one of those girls who squealed every time they saw a TV spot, or watched the trailer on YouTube a million times. I bawled my eyes out when I read the book- both times I read it. Last night, I went to see the movie knowing full well that it wasn’t going to live up to the book. Unfortunately, I was right.
What made ‘Dear John’ different from all the other love stories we’ve read and seen was taken away in the movie. I don’t know how I would have understood what was going on in the movie if I hadn’t read the book. Scenes were rushed (especially the two weeks where the two main characters fall in love), and characters weren’t well developed at all. Heck, one of the main characters barely resembles (both appearance- and personality-wise) the character in the book. *cough*Savannah Lynn Curtis*cough*.
That said, there were a couple of scenes where the dialogue was sweet and funny. I also enjoyed the music, but that may be because I’m a huge fan of acoustic. Also, the scenery was absolutely beautiful. Not to mention Channing Tatum’s body (pretty much the only thing worth my money).
As far as acting goes, Channing Tatum was the stronger one in this film. While I’m still personally neutral about my opinion on Amanda Seyfried, I found she’s done better. She may be better off with comedy or musicals. And Richard Jenkins was lovable, as always.
If you’ve read the book, don’t expect anything similar to it. I can’t point out a single scene that even resembled that of the book. Part II of the book, especially, was almost non-existent. You will definitely be able to pick out the noticeable differences between the book and the film. Hopefully, you won’t be TOO disappointed.
But like I said, you’re more likely to enjoy the film if you haven’t read the book.
Heartbreaking consequences as a result of war
(Synopsis) Special Forces Army Sergeant John Tyree (Channing Tatum) is home on a two-week leave from Germany. He meets Savannah (Amanda Seyfried) after he dives into the ocean to retrieve Savannah’s purse that had fallen off the pier. John is smitten by Savannah and falls in love at first sight. Savannah is a college student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She is on spring break and is helping build a house for Habitat for Humanity. John joins in with Savannah to help build the house. Along the way a budding romance occurs, and Savannah falls deeply in love with John. As she is about to go back to college, she promises to write John overseas during the next 12-months until he returns to her after completing his enlistment. Their love is put to the test when John reenlists after the 9/11 attack.
(My Comment) “Dear John” tells the story of what happens to young lovers when time and distance from each other begins to test their true love. Over the next several years, they write love letters to each other telling everything about themselves. As time goes by, Savannah finds another who needs her more than John, even though she still loves him. She writes John a final letter saying good-bye. This is one story that happened many times during WWII and is still happening to our current soldiers today. Our brave soldiers are sacrificing their lives and some of them come home to heartbreaking consequences as a result of the war. That is why this story seems so real to the audience. The movie will make you laugh, cry, smile, and relate to the characters. Women will like the movie, because they can stand in Savannah’s shoes. Men will like it, because they know that it is better to have loved and lost then never to have loved at all. The story is truly touching with all of life’s ups and downs. Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried are very good in their roles, along with Richard Jenkins as John’s father. (Screen Gems, Run Time 1:45, Rated PG-13) (6/10)
