DEAR JOHN tells the story of John Tyree (Channing Tatum), a young soldier home on leave, and Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried), the idealistic college student he falls in love with during her spring vacation. Over the next seven tumultuous years, the couple is separated by John's increasingly dangerous deployments. While meeting only sporadically, they stay in touch by sending a continuous stream of love letters overseas—correspondence that eventually triggers fateful consequences.

  • 5 stars "can't stop my tears from falling! i can relate to this movie. great great great!"
  • 5 stars "i loved this show as a kid and have been a judd hirsch fan ever since."
  • 4 stars "There were so many goofs in this! In the scene where John meets Savannah's parents, they're going up the stairs to the house and she's wearing a minidress and in all the other shots, she has bare legs but in this one, she's obviously wearing black pants underneath. It looks really strange. I guess it must have been cold on the day they shot it. I saw a ton of other continuity errors too, where someone would pick up a drink, then in the next shot, they would pick it up again even though they never put it down."
