2012 Guide Analysis: "The cast, the story, the marketing material - everything about this movie screams that it's another adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks work (ala "Dear John," "The Notebook," "Nights in Rodanthe"). However Sparks had nothing to do with this romantic drama which has been in development for over a decade.

Inspired by a true story, this follows a newlywed New Mexico couple (Rachel McAdams, Channing Tatum) who get into a car crash which leaves the wife in a coma. She soon awakens but with no memory of the past few years, including having met and married her husband.

In fact she still believes she's engaged to her former fiance (Speedman), a cad who is happy to have another chance with her. This leads to her real husband attempting to win her heart back in grand gestures that are cloy but romantic and will likely go down well with its target market.

Five writers previously had a crack at this project which at one time had Julia Roberts attached to star. "Grey Gardens" helmer Michael Sucsy eventually took on the scripting and directing duties and the result doesn't look that bad but certainly feels very familiar. In this genre though, that's a big selling point."
