MOVIE REVIEW: SAFE HAVEN
ASHLEY ☆☆☆☆☆ (5/5)
It's no surprise I was ridiculously excited to see this movie. It's been a while since I've seen a solid chick flick in theaters, so this was long overdue for me. I had my suspicions going in that it would be slightly cheesy, just as most Nicholas Sparks story lines are, but I was pleasantly surprised when it wasn't! I'd heard rumors of different reviews claiming it is as good as The Notebook and although I wouldn't go that far because I feel like The Notebook is in a class of its own, Safe Haven was definitely a close second behind it. It had all the makings of a great love story and all the elements of a good drama. And in Nicholas Sparks fashion, there was a brilliant twist that absolutely made me fall in love with the entire movie. I realize I'm totally biased because I love chick flicks so much, but I'm completely crazy about this movie and can't wait to get it on DVD!
JEFF ☆☆☆☆ (4/5)
Well guys, this is a classic chick flick. So if you're looking for action, there is very little. But there are some intriguing characters that make this movie a bit more tolerable for those who don't like chick flicks. Me, on the other hand, I appreciate a bit of romance, so I thought the movie was good. It's not The Notebook status, but still good. The music was really good and very complementary to the scenes in the movie. I also think that Julianne Hough did a decent job in terms of acting, considering this is her first major lead role, at least in any film that I've seen her in. If you're a guy and haven't already been dragged to this movie, don't fret, it's actually pretty decent.
