This is a real tear-jerker. The acting is fantastic and the emotions seem very real. The story line is well-considered, but it is definitely not the typical love story. The best way to describe this film is that it just feels real. You could imagine the characters being pulled off the screen and placed in the "real world" without any problem. I would definitely recommend Nights in Rodanthe to those who like a good love story with plenty of drama.

Note: For those who haven't read the book or seen the film, spoilers appear below.

"Chick lit" becomes "chick flick" as author Nicholas Sparks gets another makeover by Hollywood. I've read none of Sparks' works, but my better half and I have seen all three film versions of his modern-day tearjerkers: "Message In a Bottle", "The Notebook" and now, "Nights in Rodanthe." This one has all the predictable elements for this genre, but the acting by the leads (especially Lane) is solid and the scenery is phenomenal, the film having been shot around North Carolina's Cape Hatteras and on Ocracoke and Cedar Islands, all of which helps make a fairly mundane story more compelling. (I've been up and down the Outer Banks at least six times during my life, and that was much of the draw of seeing this film, especially at mid-winter.)

Of special note is the performance put in by veteran actor Scott Glenn, playing a widower waiting for an apology from the Raleigh surgeon played by Gere. Glenn, who left Hollywood earlier in his career to hang out in Idaho and earn his keep in blue-collar jobs, got the hang of the local dialect in "Nights" by hanging with a crabber and generally melting into the neighborhood. The craggy-faced Glenn owns his scenes with Gere, not only through pitch-perfect dialect but also with an understated yet stinging "nuts to you, you don't get it" attitude. When Gere's character finally visits the widower's cottage, Glenn steals the camera lock, stock and barrel. There's an acting award here somewhere, at least in my book.

Cinematically, the only fault one might find with "Nights" comes at the end.

Now I'm not usually the type of guy to go in for these mushy
type of films, but I must say that "Nights In Rodanthe"
made me feel it whole-heartedly and took me on a very warm
and romantic journey about life, love, fate and all of it's
fragile complexities. This is perfect as a date movie with
the one you love or when you just want to spend a reflective
evening with a glass of wine just getting reconnected
to your humanity! Both Richard Gere and Diane Lane turn
in multi-layered performances as two star-crossed people
who are both at a crossroads in their lives and who meet,
by chance & fate, to complete each other and share in a rare
perfect moment in time that lasts over the course of a
long weekend of bliss at a bed & breakfast in a coastal
North Carolina town, (Rodanthe) which changes them both for the better.

Then, just when you think it's going one way, fate intercedes
again for an unexpected twist that adds even more depth and bittersweetness to this tale.
This movie is like one of those old technicolor 1950's
romantic dramas but with a modern spin.
Viola Davis and Chris Meloni both turn in good supporting
roles as well as the other cast members.
I must admit it though, I really enjoyed this movie!

One should know walking into a movie adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks book that they are going to have their emotions manipulated; that is just how he works. I have not read a single novel from the man, although my wife has read them all (and I mean THEM ALL), but I have seen a number of his movies, and they all are pretty much the same. I generally like them (I thought that `A Walk to Remember' was wonderful, `The Notebook' was impressive and `Message in a Bottle' was memorable) and, while I do like `Nights in Rodanthe' it is by far the least successful of the four.

The film, sadly, doesn't know how to make its overwrought cliché seem somewhat inviting. Instead, it winds up feeling like a middle-aged revival of an overly dramatic teen film. It doesn't really make the distinction it needs to in order to create a real feeling of adult love.

The film tells the story of Adrienne Willis, an older mother of two whose husband left her seven months ago for another woman and is now on his knees begging for another chance. While he is away with the kids (manipulating them into taking his side), Adrienne is helping out a friend who owns a sea-side bed and breakfast. Her friend, Jean, is going to be out of town and was going to shut the place down, but Dr. Paul Flanner offered to pay double if he could stay there, so Jean asks Adrienne to watch the place for her. Paul is suffering from his own personal demons, and so it's obvious that they are going to repel and then attract one another, just in time for a storm to wreck the house and throw them into each others arms.

Someone else mentioned the first kiss was laughable, and yes, yes it is.
