Technical Specs


Did You Know?

The Swedish flag can be seen flying over John's camp in Afghanistan. This is an homage to director Lasse Hallström's home country of Sweden.

Factual errors: When John learns about 9/11 the coffee shop's TV is in Serbian while the coffee shop's sign is in Hungarian. 'Tigris Kávéház' means Tiger Coffeeshop and the sign to the right: 'Muvész' means Artist.

Savannah Curtis: The saddest people I've ever met in life are the ones who don't care deeply about anything at all.

User Review

A True Pearl.

Rating: 8/10

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. I didn't think it was going to be one of the best romance movies ever and it definitely wasn't. This movie is definitely for couples. The girls will like it cause they can connect with it.I recommend for everyone to see this film. It is touching, okay acting, and it does stick to the book. This film doesn't come close to the "Notebook", but people will like it no matter what. So if you want to buy a sad, romantic film. Then I'd recommend this film.

7/10 A Pearl
