Beautiful movie. A True Pearl., 30 January 2010
Author: toughsoulja from United States

I saw "Dear John" at a special screening and I wasn't expecting much. I thought it was going to be a decent romance film. I hoped this movie came halfway as good as "The Notebook". My very low expectations of this film were pretty cynical. But I said Hey, what could happen? And when the movie finished, I was fulfilled. This is one of the best movie experiences, I have ever had. (Avatar is my first) "Dear John" made me cry, laugh, smile, and gitty. The acting is great from both main characters. This movie is definitely for couples. The girls will like it cause they can connect with it, and possibly even guys. I recommend for everyone to see this film. It is truly touching, beautiful, romantic flick. This film might even rival "The Notebook" cause its that good.

10/10 Just Beautiful!
