Robert Pattinson may have scrubbed off his sparkly vampire sheen for 'Remember Me,' but rest assured: That carefully disheveled hair and those chiseled cheekbones are still blessedly intact.

And despite Twihards getting all lathered up over a much-clicked on shower scene, this romantic drama does, in fact, have a plot: Pattinson plays Tyler, a rich, brooding New York City college student who has taken to punching and stumbling angrily through life in the wake of a family tragedy. That is, until he meets and falls for Ally (Emilie de Ravin, a.k.a crazy Claire from 'Lost'), a coed with her own tragic past.

Lest you dismiss this as just another disaffected youth romance, Pierce Brosnan,Lena Olin and Chris Cooper are also on hand to flex some dramatic parental muscle. The movie -- where Pattinson (also an executive producer on the project) doesn't play some kind of fantasy character -- got a mixed bag of reviews. While some critics praised Pattinson for his non-vamped out role, other were harsh -- not just on the movie itself, but also by spoiling its big twist of an ending.

We endured the spoils so that you don't have to. Check out the sampling of reviews below, and let us know what you think.
