If Nicholas Sparks ever did decide to do a sci-fi film where aliens blow up the White House he would have two of the aliens fall madly in love first, have one of them be diagnosed with a fatal illness and die causing the other to go mad and destroy the White House.
Expect a call from Roland Emmerich.
Oh good, I've always wanted to give him a piece of my mind about Godzilla.

It looks like Scott Eastwood (The Longest Ride) and Zac Efron (The Lucky One) are even wearing the same T-shirt.
When I first heard about a new movie called The Longest Ride, I thought it was a porno. Actually, a porno would have been a better movie.....
My wife and I actually went to see A Walk to Remember in the theater (for the life of me, I can't tell you why)...and during this sappy, heart-string-tugging movie...we started giggling, then laughing out loud. The acting and dialogue were sooooo bad. We couldn't contain ourselves.
Maybe it's not just Nic Sparks films. Maybe it's studio marketing dept's in general. Here's another non-NS film trying to emulate the same theme:
Oh sure. But his ALL seem to fall into that template.
This is like eating peanuts...
