Starring: Julianne Hough, Josh Duhamel
Have you noticed the most absorbing love stories always involve elements of danger, Intrigue and surprise?
There’s no “Safe Haven” for runaway wife Julianne Hough. Will here past catch up with her or can she start fresh with Mr. family values, nice guy, Josh Duhamel?
The author, Nicholas Sparks enjoys taking his own sweet time revealing a little at a time during the next two hours. Time enough for tender feelings between the single Dad and the mysterious stranger who just seemed to come out of nowhere.
It’s the perfect picture for incurable romantics, even though the dreamy lovers take a bit too much time getting to where the film’s going. But when it gets there, the pay-off is well worth the wait.
Anyone familiar with Nicholas Sparks’ romantic sleight of hand should know something extraordinary will happen, and It does, but don’t expect me to give away the ending.
“Safe Haven” relentlessly tugs at your heartstrings with more reckless abandon than you could ever imagine. The picture provides “Safe Haven” for those willing to reward a good love story with 3 stars. Who says Becker doesn’t appreciate a good heart tugger now and then?
