REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..very little in this movie makes any sense, even as glossy Valentine's Day fare..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]
“..the weakest parts of "Safe Haven" are its action sequences, in which the illusion of reality is shattered by ham-handed editing, garish special effects and comic-book dialogue..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..the story heaps on a final flourish so stunningly ludicrous, it makes us half-wonder if we've been investing in a lead character who's crazy..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
“..the predictable romance between Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel is painful to watch..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
2 of 4

“..the love scenes are gauzily romantic and staunchly PG. Dialogue is heavy on sentimentality..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
“..the film isn't visually memorable or dramatically vibrant..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“..the film barely asks those questions, then lazily answers them in exactly as everyone expects..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
2 of 4

“..it's trash - entertaining and escapist, perhaps - but trash nonetheless..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..it's a terrible thing to do to your Valentine..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2 of 4

“..delivers a cinematic valentine you’ll be reasonably content to watch on a flight in a year or so..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :
