The critical consensus

However contrived this tenth Sparks-to-screen becomes, the emotions and chemistry outweigh the bull.

***(*)(*)Kat Halstead, Empire Online, 15/06/2015

Conventional, painfully slow and carrying some confusingly mixed messages about relationships, Tillman Jr’s film constitutes the worst kind of artificial bull.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Eddie Harrison, The List, 15/06/2015

Based on a Nicholas Sparks bestseller, this comfy tale of a young woman discovering how lovable old people are wallows in a wholesome, rosy-hued past.

*(*)(*)(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 18/06/2015

Much of the dialogue here is so soppy you half suspect it must have been taken from Hallmark greetings cards.

**(*)(*)(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 18/06/2015

More leisurely trot than canter.

**(*)(*)(*)Henry Fitzherbert, Sunday Express, 21/06/2015

This adaptation of Nicholas Sparks’s novel about parallel lives and loves is touching despite thick layers of schmaltz.
