Movie Review: "Dear John"
I waited to watch this movie on a night that my husband was working 2nd shift. I thought it would be a little too chick-flicky for him. I might have been wrong.
While the main theme is chick-flicky, there is a quite a bit of war and manliness in this movie.
Along with the romance of the movie there was also a side-story about John and his father. I found it very and interesting, touching and sad at certain points.
This movie is rated PG-13 and was pretty clean. There was only one "love" scene and that wasn't very graphic. As I said, there was some violence but not to a major extent.
I haven't read the book the movie is based on, so I can't comment on how it measures up. Maybe someone else has read the book and can comment.
Overall, I enjoyed watching this movie and would probably watch it again to catch certain parts that I would understand a little more the second time through.
Let me know if you've watched "Dear John" and what you thought.
