Friday Night Date Night is a feature on my blog that showcases movie reviews (mostly movies that were adapted from books). Hopefully some of these reviews will help you decide what to watch on your date night or a night of relaxing at home.
Again...confession time. I only read this novel and saw this movie because of how good Zac Efron looked in the advertisements. He's definitely not in high school anymore and I wanted to see how he turned out as an actor playing a more serious role.
Sadly, I didn't really like this novel so I was hoping the movie would be better. I was wrong. Usually I like movies based on Nicholas Sparks novels, but this one didn't do it for me. The acting felt stiff and forced in places. Logan's (Zac Efron) character fell flat and while we did get glimpses of a fun loving guy, there was something missing.
With any book to movie adaption there were changes and a lot was left out. I'm not sure if adding some of these things back would have made the movie stronger or not.
Has anyone else seen this movie? What were your thoughts?
