Rotten: The movie's commitment to the blandest possible presentation of its central problem starts to seem perverse after a while.
- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Thursday, February 9, 2012
Rotten: This is a movie that leaves you wanting more. To care more, to cry more, to love more.
- Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, February 9, 2012
Rotten: The Vow promises tried-and-true rom-com formula and delivers, treading in sappy, clich-ridden turf.
- Claudia Puig, USA Today, Thursday, February 9, 2012
A bit gooey but earnestly and engagingly played. Knowing that its based on a true story makes some of the more odd elements easier to accept.

"For some reason I was thinking that this film was going to be a rom-com. Big mistake on my part. It ended up being a rom-dram. I didn't think I would get so swept up in this love story since I'm not a huge fan of romance flicks, but this one got me. The story being based on true events was what really had me thinking about the film differently. It made me like it more. You can't help but feel complete heartache for this couple. I mean to be so in love and to have something that horrendous happen and *SPOILER* to never get the memory of falling in love with you husband, your wedding, and your entire lively hood with this person is just heart breaking.*END OF SPOILER* I also kinda enjoyed that there was no fairy tale ending, even though I wanted one for her. Great acting by Tatum and McAdams. I thought they had great chemistry which is a plus when doing movies like these or the film would have never worked."

Overall, not a bad movie. Certainly not "The Notebook", but it was an ok story about a man who never stopped loving the love of his life, for better or worse. I'm not quite sure if it's the presentation of the story, or Channing Tatum's moderate acting skills, but this movie didn't quite move me like I wanted it to...
