gymnastics ensue as John tries to make sense of Savannah’s decision and stifle the agony inside.

Should I Write a "Dear John" to Dear John’?…

Dear John is a slow, romantic drama that will likely appeal to the same audience that enjoys the Twilight films, specifically, those who believe a woman can have a fulfilling relationship with a man who has the personality and emotional range of a manhole cover. Okay, okay, sorry! To be fair, the on screen chemistry was decent and the movie did serve up a surprise or two, but once again, I believe I was not the intended audience. At the very least, Twilight fans can argue about whether Taylor Lautner or Channing Tatum has the finer pectorals.
