To be fair, I knew I was going to love this movie before I saw a single preview.
Why? Because a Nicholas Sparks story has never let me down AND two actors that I really like -- Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel -- star in the movie! (As a sidenote: Julianne kind of reminded me of Jennifer Aniston in this movie and Josh looks kind of like a much hotter version of Gerard Butler haha.)
Safe Haven is everything you'd expect out of a Sparks flick with the romance and the impossibly gorgeous people meeting by chance. There was even a canoe trip that ended in a rainstorm a'la The Notebook (although not nearly as intense).
But don't worry guys, while it is a bit of a tearjerker, it's not unbearably sappy (nor is it even funny). It's more of a romantic thriller. That's all I'm going to say though because I don't want to spoil the show for you.
If you like "chick flicks" or are dating someone who does, I recommend you check out this movie. And when you do, let me know what you think @CWStarColumbus!
