Video Trailer of Amanda Seyfried and Channing Tatum in Dear John 2009-10-15 14:30:22

Movie Preview: Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried in Dear John

You were all pretty split on your feelings about Channing Tatum, but we can all agree that the actor has made a name for himself as the muscle-bound sensitive guy. He gets even deeper into that archetype in Dear John, an adaption from the Nicholas Sparks novel where he plays the love interest of Amanda Seyfried.

The two fall for each other one Summer while Seyfried's character Savannah is home from college and Tatum's John is home on leave. When they have to leave each other and return to their respective obligations, they begin writing letters to keep in touch, hence the title.

Normally I would be holding my nose for this schlockfest, but I can't deny the talent of director Lasse Hallstrom, the charisma of the two leads, or the major soft spots I have for The Notebook and A Walk to Remember — movies made from Sparks books. And there's another bonus: Six Feet Under's Richard Jenkins as John's dad. To watch the trailer and decide if it's going to be a cheesy mess or a heart-tugger, just

Wow, they really don't seem to have ANY chemistry together...they should play brother and sister or something. But I still want to see it...

I loved A Walk to Remember movie and book. I love The Notebook movie so much I decided to not read the book. The more recent Nicholas Sparks-based movies haven't interested me. But I have the Dear John novel somewhere on my bookshelf (a gift). Maybe I'll read it first and decide about the movie. I'm not sure if Mr. Tatum has sold me on his acting chops though.

A Walk to Remember was decent; The Notebook made me want to go out and kill geese or heron or whatever the h*ll those stupid birds were. I will never look at Ryan Gosling the same way ever again. That movie was horrific.Anyway, this, at least, looks better than that and better than A Walk. Chanhing Tatum is unattractive with Popeye's cute cauliflower ears and nice washboard abs and he can't act his way out of a paper bag. But that doesn't seem to be a prerequisite any more, so he should do well.

Lasse Hallstrom is a brilliant director, this should be good.

I like Nicholas Sparks but after seeing A Walk to Remember completely mangled on screen, I'm not sure I can take another movie. Plus I thought he had a movie coming out with Miley Cyrus in it. Sparks overload.

I love Amanda Seyfried, Channing is not a bad choice either, but I'm a bit over Nicholas Sparks.I hate all the dying in his movies.Nights in Rodanthe was one of the stupidest movies I have ever seen...i couldn't help but laugh at the lameeee ending.
