From the author of “The Notebook” comes DEAR JOHN a story of destiny that pushes young soldier, John Tyree and idealistic college student, Savannah Curtis together. When war tears them apart, will their endless stream of love letters be enough to keep them united?
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Built from many of the same ingredients as other Nicholas Sparks tearjerkers, Dear John suffers from its cliched framework, as well as Lasse Hallstrom's curiously detached directing.

Common Sense Says
Teens will swoon for far-fetched, syrupy romance.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this Channing Tatum/Amanda Seyfried romantic drama based on Nicholas Sparks' best-selling novel includes some non-graphic sexuality and wartime violence (including one scene in which two soldiers are shot) but is otherwise a pretty tame romance that's age appropriate for teens. The lead couple (who are college-age when they meet) share many intense kisses and spend one night together, but there's no nudity. Language includes a few uses of "s--t" and some exclamations like "oh my God." Two supporting characters -- one young and one adult -- are autistic, and their conditions are discussed several times. Positive messages include the importance of service and the many ways that people can help others in need.
