Q: What’s the movie about?
A: A soldier (Channing Tatum) falls in love with a girl (Amanda Seyfried) on his two week leave from the Army, and promises to come back for her in a year, when his service is up. But then 9/11 happens and he feels pressured to stay loyal to his troop and re-up, forcing his love to do what she has to do.
Q: Who’s in the movie?
A: Channing Tatum, Amanda Seyfried, Richard Jenkins, Henry Thomas, D.J. Cotrona, Scott Cullen, Keith Robinson, Braeden Reed
Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?
A: Proceed with Caution. If it's romance you want, you'll definitely get what you're looking for. Just try not to imagine what these two people will have in common once they're no longer young, beautiful, hard bodied kids who only need to smile at each other to feel everything the Earth offers to excite your insides.
Q: Will this movie make me laugh?
A: The first monologue might have you laughing from its cheesiness, but it ends up having a nice twist to it.
Q: Will this movie make me cry?
A: Actually, the above mentioned twist could make you cry.
Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?
A: Aside from the early-year timing of the release, I wouldn't be surprised if Richard Jenkins got some recognition in the Best Supporting Actor category.
Q: How is the Acting?
A: This is nothing against their acting, but Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried sure are easy on the eyes.
Q: How is the Directing?
A: Lasse Holstrom is known for these kinds of schmaltzy romances (see Chocolat and Cider House Rules), but sometimes there's a time to pull back on the musical montages. Like, for example I could have done without the 7 minute interlude of letters being shown and opened but not read to the audience. The whole sequence only ends up making the film feel a lot longer than it is.
Q: How is the story/script?
A: There is more than one surprise twist in this story, which makes you feel like the writer knows what he's doing, but the dialogue-- especially whatever it is that's supposed to convince us that these two people have enough in common to fall in love for forever-- is lacking. And by "lacking," I mean, there's not enough of it. I have no idea what these people talk about together.
Q: Is there anything else worth mentioning about the movie?
A: Did you know that Amanda Seyfried can sing? Yeah, that's a little tidbit I learned from watching this movie, and you can, too!
Q: Where can I see the trailer?
