The Vow lives up to hype
The much anticipated romance movie of the year, The Vow, premiered Feb. 10, to high expectations. It did not disappoint. Its opening day it earned $15.4 million and proceeded to bring in $41.2 million over the weekend.
Its biggest fan base was women and couples hoping to see something sweet for Valentine’s Day.
“Honestly, I wanted to see it because Channing Tatum’s pretty cute and it was a love story and I’m a romance freak. I love romance stories,” said senior Taylor Krill.
She saw it with her sister, but agrees it’s a great date movie even though most guys probably won’t like it. Social media sites were blowing up before the premiere with a large amount of girls expressing a longing to see it and an equally large amount of guys expressing a disdain for the next ‘Notebook’-like tear jerker.
“If they wanna go out on a date, why not? It’s the girl’s choice. It’s a chick flick,” Krill said. “Most guys don’t like chick flicks.”
Junior Andy Plueger, who saw the movie opening night with his girlfriend, Dayna, disagreed.
“It was better than expected. [Definitely] worth it to see it in theatres,” Plueger said.
Plueger, a fan of movies like Chronicle, which came out the day before, would not call it his favorite, but thinks guys should definitely see it with their girlfriends.
Overall both Krill and Plueger agree it was a success and other students should pay to see it in theatres.
