More like The Longest Book.
Okay, it wasn’t long, but MAN it dragged on.
And I pretty much felt that everyone in this book behaved irrationally and idiotically.
(Which is probably explains why I’ve never been in love.)
They just ALL seemed to be doing stupid things. And don’t get me wrong, I love a good love story, and I was all for imagining Scott Eastwood in this role. Until I realized that this character, while being a smart bull riding farmer, was a complete tit.
You get brained and nearly die bull riding, hospitalized, slow recovery, therapy for months, and yet you still decide to get back up there when all is said and done? All because your mom is going to lose the farm?
No. No way Scott Eastwood. You get a job! And not one that includes riding a wild animal that nearly kills you. (Characters actual name is Luke by the way.)
Then there is Sophia, who was kind of a whiny tit herself. She had this ex who was always following her and harassing her. Yet didn’t call the cops to be like “Get the fuck out of here!” And wouldn’t let herself have fun if she thought for a second that he was going to be there because he MIGHT cause a scene. MIGHT.
Then later her best friend (another shitty person) announces that she’s seeing Sophia’s ex and that he won’t cheat on her like he did Sophia and “please forgive me, I couldn’t help it.”
EVEN THOUGH SHE KNEW WHAT HER FRIEND HAD GONE THROUGH WITH THIS PERSON.
Yeah right you couldn’t help it!!! You’re a terrible friend and should be shot.
I had a hard time believing any of these people were real people. They all just seemed like morons who were out for themselves and just complete fuckwits.
The only characters I liked were the old man who was dying in a car in the snow and his “ghost/hallucination” wife that was by his side.
And I usually really like Nicholas Sparks movies and for the most part his books.
What a sad disappointment.
But I’ll still totally watch the shit out of that movie. Hello. Shirtless Scott Eastwood? Sign me up.
Here’s some eye candy for ya. He’s literally just standing with a horse wearing plaid and I’m in love.
What is this magic.
