I came across this movie in some what random manner… however, upon watching it, the movie just warmed up my heart… big time. First, big props to Ryan Reynolds for an excellent acting. This is my first time seeing him acting so big so well. And I don’t get impressed often. He was always playing goofy parts (ie. Scrubs and Two Guys, a Girl, and a Pizza Place). Yet, here he is playing a very serious role of a father and a husband.
And the plot is even better. One that should touch anyone’s heart, of love and betrayal. But for some reason, the ending was the best for me… and the favorite part, I took out and personally typed it up in this quote… Frank Allen is the character that Ryan Reynolds plays, the main character…
Franik Allen: It turns out there are few things that are more chaotic than that of a human heart. Speeding up, slowing down, pretty face, flight of stairs, it’s always changing no matter what happens. It’s an erratic son of a bitch. But underneath all that bump to bump mess, there is in fact, a pattern, the truth. And it’s love. Most important thing about love is we choose to give it. And we choose to receive it, making it the least random act in the entire universe. It transcends blood, it transcends betrayal, and all that dirt that makes us human. If you can figure that out, Jake’s got nothing on you.
That is huge. And so true. I pray that we will also choose to give and receive love. I give it 8/10.
