The Vow

Two bland, materialistic WASPs (Channing Tatum, Rachel McAdams) must rebuild their marriage from scratch after the wife loses her memory in an accident. At least one unfunny comedy (the 1940 William Powell-Myrna Loy vehicle I Love You Again) and one unmoving drama (the 1991 Harrison Ford vehicle Regarding Henry) have been built around the premise of amnesia threatening a marriage. This has more in common with the latter than the former, but most of the time it plays like the movie adaptation of a Land's End catalog, making monogamy seem essential by associating it with high-end interior design. Michael Sucsy directed; with Sam Neill, Jessica Lange, and Scott Speedman.
