The premise of The Vow is a solid, if soaptastic one: what if you woke up unable to remember the last four years of your life? And what if there was a stranger next to you who seemed to know everything about you and claimed to be your husband?
The Vow fits flushly into that mold, but the fact that it isn't even tangentially associated with Sparks eliminates any possible excuse the filmmakers could lean on regarding the end product.
Nevertheless, she must reject this foreign existence in her confused state because the plot of "The Vow" requires some conflict.
I'll relate what may be the most telling thing about The Vow, the new based-on-a-true-story romance from director Michael Sucsy starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams as a young married couple torn apart when a head injury gives her amnesia that...
This is not, however, the reaction of Paige (Rachel McAdams) in The Vow, a romantic drama that tests a young married couple after just such a situation. Paige’s reaction is to recoil in horror, which puts her at odds with the audience, most of which...
A woman (Rachel McAdams) wakes up from a coma with no memory of her marriage. The romance film is loosely based on a true story.
It's too bad every complacent couple can't have one spouse lose all memory of the other. As evidenced by The Vow, being forced into a clean-slate courtship is a great way to cure mid-marriage malaise. The zealous effort to woo is restored.
MacAdams is such a charming and gifted performer it's a shame she hasn't yet found a project truly worthy of her talents. Insipid romantic dramas like this won't do her any favours. She's as watchable as ever though as artist Paige, still very much in...
I have a male friend who said, when I told him that yes, in fact, my job involves seeing all the movies that get a wide release, including The Vow, and not just ones I have a personal interest in watching, "I would rather kill myself."
But "The Vow"is agreeable enough. It may be puddin'-headed but it's not soul-crushing. Thirty minutes into the picture, directed with sincere devotion to the concept of true love by Michael Sucsy (HBO's "Grey Gardens"), the largely female audience...
The Vow is a date/Valentine’s Day movie. The response from the females in the theater was, expectedly, positive. I, for one, couldn’t get into it. While the women get a romantic guy who happens to be shirtless in a few scenes (and stark naked in one)...
Reel Film Reviews
The Vow details the chaos that ensues for married couple Paige (Rachel McAdams) and Leo (Channing Tatum) after she loses her memory in a car crash, with the film subsequently revolving around Leo's ongoing efforts at winning back the affections of his...
The A.V. Club
That’s true even in a film that does him no favors, like The Vow, which casts him as a hopeless romantic whose courtship techniques include spelling out romantic messages with blueberries and giving a new girlfriend a picture of himself strumming...
The only reason any male could have for seeing The Vow is the hope of getting laid afterwards. The only reason any female could have for seeing The Vow is if she views the plots of Harlequin romance novels as the height of modern storytelling.
Before the opening credits finish rolling in the romantic drama "The Vow," we know this film's about tragedy, recovery and love. An adorable young married couple, Paige (Rachel McAdams) and Leo (Channing Tatum), leave a movie on a snowy Chicago night...
New York Post
It’s billed as a romance — but for hipster guys, “The Vow” may come off as a horror movie. What could be more nightmarish than marrying a sexy, free-spirited sculptor who gets a brain injury and wakes up from her coma as “a sweater-set-wearing...
As always, I'm rooting for her to get out, and her rapport with Tatum is one of the few things to enjoy while The Vow unfolds its nuance-free love story. They're not enough to save it, but give how many rom-com stars seem as sleepy as the stories...

The germs of a few good ideas reside within the bowels of "The Vow," but the movie is too preoccupied with pushing chick-flick buttons to cultivate them. Someone figured -- and perhaps not without reason -- that you don't need thoughtful, resonant...
A Valentine Day's gift swaddled in sanitized Saran wrap, "The Vow" is a pretty package of sweets, sealed off from the corrupting air of reality. It will encourage susceptible audiences -- women, to be precise -- to believe that they've been party...
Not Leo. He is the hero of “The Vow” and although he didn’t make his pledge in those words — he’s far too creative for that — he did swear to always stand by his new wife, Paige.
In some ways, The Vow is just average awful — the kind of typically gooey, sub-Nicholas Sparksy romance that rolls into movie theaters each year around Valentine's Day, only to be hustled off the screen and forgotten as soon as February 14 has safely...
The romantic drama The Vow is not adapted from a Nicholas Sparks novel, though I doubt its producers would be offended if you’d assumed otherwise. In fact, I suspect they’re banking on it. The film’s stars, Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, are both...
“The Vow” is inspired by a true and wonderful story, but that doesn’t make the fictionalized version any less ridiculous.
One Guy's Opinion
Though it’s based, as we’re told at the very start, on a true story, “The Vow” comes across as a totally synthetic tearjerker in the Nicholas Sparks mode. It feels like a LifeTime movie pumped into a theatre auditorium, though audiences attuned...
Will “The Vow” help? This film returns her to “Notebook” territory: she has the lead role in a romance/melodrama aimed at young women and their (possibly reluctant) Valentine’s dates.
Memory loss as a story device always seems contrived but here it sets up an intriguing, humorous and thought-provoking drama about relationships and how people change. Tatum and McAdams are excellent and sympathetic, aided by a screenplay that treats...
Film School Rejects
For most of its run, Michael Sucsy‘s The Vow did exactly what I asked of it. It was surprisingly heartfelt and emotionally weighty…before it slowly remembered it was a Hollywood rom-dram and reverted to the woeful tropes there contained.
It is one of those things which would probably make you shed a tear or two – only if it happened to someone you know. A guy and a girl get married. Even before you can say “happy ending”, something unfortunate happens and the girl forgets who the guy is.
Although it packs in all the usual trademarks of a sappy Nicholas Sparks-style adaptation, 'The Vow' claims to be based on a true story. And those are always the ones you least believe. Not because the premise seems implausible…
The few weaknesses in the plot can be overlooked as The Vow makes for a wonderful - if a bit teary - romance that is brilliantly acted.
As far as hackneyed soap opera tropes go, the old “selective amnesia” chestnut takes some beating – boy meets girl, girl forgets boy, boy tries to jog girl’s memory – and the basedon- real-events tag can’t negate the schmaltz factor at the core of...
There was plenty of potential to develop the amnesia-affected premise. Alas, The Vow strikes us as more banal than believable, despite being inspired by true events. The viewer is never moved from mild interest to emotional involvement in the glossy...
It’s beautifully shot though and not only does Chicago look good but girls everywhere will certainly appreciate Tatum taking his shirt off.
Shadows on the Wall
Inspired by a true story, this film is watchable mainly because of the extraordinary events, which are genuinely involving and moving. Although typically, Hollywood has ramped up the emotions while avoiding subtlety at all costs.

A HUSBAND trying to win back his wife who has lost her memory should, hopefully, have more to say than this: "Impact... that moment of impact... that changes everything... everything." Leo (Tatum) tells us this not once or twice but at least four times.
There were too many places where "The Vow" could have gone terribly wrong. Like it could have taken the easy route and put too much sugar, while forgetting to put other ingredients. There were too many places where "The Vow" could have gone terribly...
Time Out London
On the one hand, this makes ‘The Vow’ a more sensible, realistic film – but it may leave expectant romantics with hankies to spare.
