    The Vow is a sopping hankie of a romance for women who love to suffer and the men who love them. show more

    Even viewers who are an easy touch for romance movies will find this heavy-handed. show more

    It may appeal to the most rabid fans of tearjerk romances like "The Notebook," but it's a hard-to-swallow, maudlin tale. show more

    Ready-made for Valentine's Day, The Vow is, like the offerings at Cafe Mnemonic, a total sugar overload. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    As the world's most chipper recovering coma patient, McAdams is a beautiful blank. There's not a single moment when her character feels real, or as if she genuinely has anything at stake. So it's a good thing Tatum steps up to add a little depth to this unabashedly lightweight venture. show more

    Todd McCarthy The Hollywood Reporter

    Such heart-tuggers have their appeal to some people in any era, but earnest hokum of this nature has become increasingly rare. And for a reason. show more

    Doesn't turn out to be as gauzily sentimental as its beginning (or its marketing materials) suggests. show more

    These two stars bring believable chemistry and emotion to a film that might otherwise wilt under the weight of so much melodrama. show more

    The Vow is not exactly a woman's picture. It's more about how a man falls in love, loses his love and gives up everything in life to focus on regaining his love. Maybe it's a woman's picture from a male point of view. However you slice it, it's a welcome loaf-far from perfect, but as filling as a home-cooked meal. show more

    It's pleasant enough as a date movie, but that's all. show more

    I was a bit dissapointed in this movie. I expected it to be better. I found this movie to be slow and a bit draggy, although it is a good movie, yet sad, I wouldn\'t have this on my top romance movie list.

    The story itself was good, but the ending came on too suddenly...
