Remember Me

For Twilight fans who think there’s just not enough “Edward” in the movies these days, Robert Pattinson stars in Remember Me, a romance about two 20-somethings with troubled pasts who are drawn to each other for their wit, wisdom and shared angst. Ally (Emilie de Ravin, most famous as Claire from TV’s “Lost”) is the daughter of a police detective who roughs up Tyler (Pattinson). They meet when Tyler’s roommate (Tate Ellington) urges Tyler to date her to get back at the cop. Romance ensues.

ClearPlay In Action!

A parent watching Remember Me would probably feel like it should’ve been rated R instead of PG-13, due to language, overall serious subject matter, and some lovemaking scenes. The ClearPlayed version edits 60 instances of language (including two F-words), some suggestive dialogue, scenes of intimacy and some violence. Still, the movie is mostly suitable for mature teens and above because of thematic developments.

Is Remember Me memorable?…

What’s refreshing about Remember Me is that it doesn’t feel like every other romantic drama out there. The dialogue is solid, the performances natural, and sure, Pattinson still broods a lot, but at least he smiles once in awhile. Unfortunately, the movie is memorable largely for a plot development that tends to overshadow the rest of the film. Still, it’s a nice change of pace for fans of interesting characters.
