Critic Reviews

  • Rex Reed, New York Observer
    The Vow is a welcome antidote to cynicism, and a bracing tonic that proves love hasn't disappeared from the film experience completely.
  • Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
    The Vow makes the least of its concept, refusing to acknowledge that a love need not be perfect to merit holding on to.
  • Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
    The two stars look dewy and glossy and unexceptional, bound together less by chemistry than by the ministrations of a hard-working costume designer.
  • Richard Roeper, Richard
    'The Vow' is inspired by a true and wonderful story, but that doesn't make the fictionalized version any less ridiculous.
  • Joseph M. Amodio, Newsday
    Tatum is unusually expressive; Speedman, both hiss-worthy and sympathetic. But McAdams is the real draw.
  • Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
    As usual, Channing Tatum looks sweet and dull and, in most scenes, slightly confused.
  • Leah Rozen, TheWrap
    The strong stench from The Vow is likely to overwhelm the smell of popcorn in movie theaters this weekend.
  • Jennie Punter, Globe and Mail
    The kind of featherweight fare that is enjoyed in the moment and forgotten soon after the end credits roll.
  • Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
    It's pleasant enough as a date movie, but that's all.
  • Sara Stewart, New York Post
    Sucsy works within the trappings of a typical cheesy romance but finds realism in the details and the banter.
