Rachel McAdams… why can’t you get into better movies?
The Vow may be based on a true story, but it’s like a story we’ve heard before.
(But doesn’t this happen all the time in Hollywood?)
Take the end game of The Notebook:
She’s an elderly Alzheimer’s patient, and the whole movie is her husband telling their life story, which was also based on a true story (oops, I forget to put SPOILER ALERT!)
And mix it with this flick:
And you get The Vow:
Channing Tatum plays the husband to Rachel McAdams’ amnesic wife, and he doesn’t know how to act… just like in real-life.
See – it is a true story!
