Scott Eastwood, son of Clint, is a great leading male actor, and Britt Robertson is a great leading female. Both of the actors are in their 20s and share a chemistry with each other which is far more appealing (to me) than most romantic movies involving young couples. This is also a more mature and thoughtful romance movie than many. In this movie, she wants to go into art, particularly contemporary art, and he has a career as a rodeo performer. They fall in love slowly enough that it’s believable and meaningful, rather than in one sudden lustful scene like so many movies do. While I find one scene of implied sex unnecessary (and prefer it happen after marriage), I really enjoy the way their relationship develops. They become influenced by the life story of a man played by Alan Alda, who learned the meaning of sacrificial love and imparts this experiential wisdom to them. The parallels between Alda’s character’s story and their story give the movie a...
Every Nicholas Sparks movie has a major problem in their marketing. They ALWAYS compare it to the Notebook. In my humble opinion, the Notebook was one of the greats in terms of movie Romances. It was just fantastic. So, to constantly put every movie in that shadow is often unfair to that decent new movie. The Longest Ride is deinitely a decent Nicholas Sparks movie!
Fans of Sparks will find much to love here. It has all of the essential elements of a beautiful Sparks romance : A southern town, a lake, a girl and boy that come from different worlds but can't help but fall for each other, an older couple and their love story interwoven with the younger couple's love story. I could go on and on. But I think that is one of the reasons we keep watching and enjoying Nicholas Sparks movies. It is like chicken noodle soup on a cold day. So nice and comfy. This is our Fast and the Furious. They may not all be the most perfect movie ever, but we know what we are signing up...
Well I'll be hornswoggled if it isn't Clint Eastwood's son Scott starring in Nicholas Sparks' ("The Notebook"), one of those two-hankie romances that Sparks does so successfully.
Directed by George Tillman Jr. ("Faster") using Craig Bolotin's script based on the Sparks' novel, this PG-13 chick flick makes nice exposure for an attractive young couple who learn that the secret of "The Longest Ride" (marriage) is not only love, but also sacrifice and compromise.
We watch: * Scott Eastwood ("Fury") Luke is a bull rider (an 8 second ride is the goal) looking for a comeback from a severe head injury a year earlier. He has an old-fashioned way about him that is soooo appealing. * Britt Robertson ("Delivery Man") Sophia is on her way to Manhattan to pursue a career in art when a sorority sister drags her to a bull-riding competition. She has never dated a man who has nice manners. * Alan Alda ("The...
