In her head she's back in high school, so she doesn't know who Leo is, she has forgotten how she fell in love with him, and marrying him. Leo is still madly in love with his wife, so he is determined to help her regain her memory.
Out of the blue Paige's parents show up (played brilliantly by Sam Neill and Jessica Lange) and want Paige to let Leo go so she can come back home and live with them. But there are so many untold stories that Paige is yet to discover! Why hasn't she seen her parents for many years? Why is her old best friend avoiding her? How did she get that tattoo on her back? And why does the tattoo move around on her back during the movie?
All these questions (except for the tattoo questions that I just made up) are answered throughout the movie.
The movie is based on real events. Kim and Krickitt Carpenter went through this entire story - and I won't tell if they managed to stay together or not. This is not meant to be a spoiler after all!! But here's a pic of Kim and Krickitt (what kind of a name is that?! )
As for the acting, I liked Channing Tatum the best. He was the most convincing in his role - it was easy to feel his frustration about no being recognized.
As for Rachel McAdams, she was such a pain in the ass, I did not like the way she acted one bit! And there was one thing that was really weird: Her hair got more and more blond throughout the movie, for no particular reason. And to be honest: She looks much nicer as a brunette! Blond hair makes her look 15 years older than she is.
I couldn't quite decide how many stars I wanted to pour out over this movie. I was entertained, yes, but also annoyed. I cried a bit, yes, but I never really laughed. But If you like chick flicks and rom-coms this movie is for you. If you're not interested in predictable American Valentine's Day's movies, you should give this a miss.
I end up giving this out of 6.
