#ASimpleFavor Teaser Trailer #2

Movie Review: #THECHOICE Nicholas Sparks has done it again!

Nicholas Sparks has done it again!

Rama is back with another review.

THE CHOICE is everything you’d expect from a Nicholas Sparks adaptation. It’s a reach-for-the-kleenex textbook romantic drama for females everywhere many of whom have read Sparks’ books a thousand times over. Boy meets girl, but girl is meant to marry someone else, boy and girl are supposedly not in the same income bracket, and they live in small town U.S.A near a body of water, either lake or ocean. Benjamin Walker and Teresa Palmer's chemistry is endearing.

Ladies man, Travis Shaw (Benjamin Walker) encounters and falls for a strong-willed medical student named Gabby Holland (Teresa Palmer). But Gabby already has a long-term boyfriend, and so “The Choice” chronicles the relationship between Travis and Gabby that would ultimately be tested by life’s most defining events.

There’s not much to say about this really, because if you’ve seen other movies based on Nicholas Sparks’ books, you’ve pretty much seen THE CHOICE. But I don’t mind, I keep coming back to this, even though I’m not a hardcore romantic drama fan, only because with Sparks, we know what we’re getting and there's something comforting about that. What others might consider predictable, Sparks fans call it reliable. Sparks has become a constant brand that doesn’t let them down when they come to get a good cry.

The battle to win the girl’s heart in THE CHOICE is not as heaven-and-earth like “The Notebook,” the tragedy that happens in the third act feels too separate from the rest of the events prior, and I wouldn’t label veterinarian a small time country boy because last I checked, and you can correct me if I’m wrong, a veterinarian makes decent money. So who knows, perhaps after so many romantic books and their many adaptations, perhaps even Nicholas Sparks himself has fallen victim to his own successful pattern, but will he lose his romantic edge? I doubt it. THE CHOICE does exactly what it’s supposed to do, it’s that regular old journey through the emotions of the mushy, butterflies in your stomach, lovey dovey puppy and the heartbreaks, and regrets, guilt, and falling in love over again.

Five years, eight months, 12 days...and counting. That’s how long Debbie Ocean (Sandra Bullock) has been devising the biggest heist of her life. She knows what it’s going to take—a team of the best in their field, starting with her partner-in-crime Lou Miller (Cate Blanchett). Together, they recruit a crew of specialists: jeweler Amita (Mindy Kaling); street con Constance (Awkwafina); expert fence Tammy (Sarah Paulson); hacker Nine Ball (Rihanna); and fashion designer Rose (Helena Bonham Carter). The target is a cool $150 million dollars in diamonds—diamonds that will be around the neck of world-famous actress Daphne Kluger (Anne Hathaway), who will be centerstage at the event of the year, the Met Gala. The plan is rock solid, but everything will need to be flawless if the team is going to get in and get away with the ice. All in plain sight.
