Leo (Channing Tatum) and Paige (Rachel McAdams) have their lives thrown into a spin after a car accident on a snowy Chicago night. (A good opportunity for me to remind Maya never to take off her seat belt.) When Paige wakens from her medically-induced coma, she has no memory of the previous five years of her life, including everything about her relationship and marriage to Leo. In reality, she's a young sculptor living in the city and very much in love with her husband, who owns a small recording studio. In her mind, she's still a student in law school and engaged to someone else.
There aren't any huge developments in this movie, and the story rests on the really nice chemistry between McAdams and Tatum. I also enjoyed seeing Jessica Lange as Paige's mom and Scott Speedman (I love the t.v. series Felicity) as Paige's ex-fiance. Very pleasant way to spend part of an afternoon, though Maya ranked the movie as "terrible because it's so sad."
If you've seen The Vow, what did you think?
