The Vow

Everything seems to be perfect for my movie date with Abdel today considering the fact that we both watched The Vow. It's been months since we waited for this film to screen on the cinema. So imagine our relief when we finally had the chance to witness the greatest Valentine movie of the year 2012. 


Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams did a good job once again by portraying the husband and wife characters in the said movie. After the success of Dear John and The Notebook, everyone is probably excited for the team up of the great stars.

The story is basically about a sweet couple who are perfectly happy with their lives until they had a car accident one night. Unfortunately, only Leo (Channing) got a chance to go back to his normal life and routine. On the other hand, his wife Paige (Rachel) forgot the past five years of her life which was shared with Leo. All she can remember were the days she spent with her family and ex-fiance Jeremy. It broke the heart of Leo but he never gave up in reminding Paige how beautiful their marriage was.

However, it wasn't easy for him because Paige seems to have an amazing life before they met five years ago. In fact, her wife couldn't even believe that they were together. It was painful but then again, Leo did all the things he can to gain back the love of his life. After all the months of trying to bring back what they once had, both of them finally gave up and settled for a divorce. They thought it was the right thing to do. Months have passed and they were still not over each other. Paige wasn't able to regain her memory of Leo and their marriage but she knew deep in her heart that Leo was the man for her. Eventually, they ended up being back in each other's arms. 

The Vow is truly exceptional not only because the actors in it were good but most especially for the message it wished to send to its viewers. When it comes to loving someone, you don't just give up easily. You stick with the promises and vows you make for each other. As what people always say, giving up is never an option when you know that love is still there. There are times when you have to take a break and look at the bigger picture of your relationship with the other person. You may begin to question the decisions you have made in the past that brought you where you are right now. Only then will you begin to realize the real meaning of loving the other person. 

I have to commend the cast and crew of The Vow for coming up a good Valentine's movie that will surely capture the hearts of everyone who sees it. I highly recommend this film not only for the couples out there but to all the people who believe in the power of love and "the vow". Take note that this movie is inspired by a true to life story.



"I vow to live within the walls of your heart." - Paige 
"I promise to never forget that this is once in a lifetime love. I vow to love you and no matter what challenges may carry us apart, we will always find a way back to each other." - Leo

Life is all about moments of impact... And how they change our lives forever. But what if one day, you could no longer remember any of them?

  10. Vince and I were supposed to watch this pero hindi natuloy. Ngayon pa lang naiiyak na ako sa synopsis, pero glad that happy ending naamn. Vince gets demented patients every now and then, and when he tells home and shares how heartbreaking it is when the person you love would not even recognize you, i get really teary eyed :( I just pray na hindi mangyari yun sa'min or even to our family and friends.

    Musta ka na nga, Al? Saan ang date nyo ni Abdel sa V-day? Nakikichicka din ako tulad ni Krizza. Hehe!

    Ito pala yung isa kong blog: Ako si Beki. Inaayos ko pa din yung blog list ko, pero i'll add your blogs there. Paki-add din please sa blogs mo yung link/badge ha? Thanks! :)

    Happy Hearts Day in advance ♥

    1. As in ate KM. I think it's the most painful thing that could happen in someone's life. I can't even imagine experiencing the same thing :( Sana nga di mangyari. Add ko yang blog mo sa link list ko ate KM.

      Wala kaming plan for Vday. Hahaha. Busy kasi ako because of work and school. I have some appointments from 8am to 9pm. So we might see each other on lunch time for a few hours tapos after 9 at night na naman.

      Anyway, happy Vday ate KM! :)

  11. Hmm... I love both the notebook and dear john. I also love the two main casts. However, the movie is not so unique as it is like the notebook mixing with 50 first dates.
