Exclusive Interview with Rachel McAdams & Channing Tatum, Stars of “The Vow”, on Relationships

posted by Evan Derrick

I had the chance to sit down the other weekend with Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum and talk about their new film (opening this weekend, Friday, February 10th ) called “The Vow.”

Now, just so you know, I am NOT the target demo for romance films. Maybe, MAYBE, once in a blue moon I’ll enjoy the odd romantic comedy (You’ve Got Mail, High Fidelity, About a Boy). But straight up serious romance? PASS.

However, The Vow, caught me completely by surprise. First, it has an original premise. A young couple, married and in love, are involved in a car accident. Once the wife (Rachel McAdams) wakes up, she finds that she has absolutely no memory of her husband (Channing Tatum). In fact, the last thing she can remember is being engaged to a completely different person.

Second, The Vow doesn’t pull out the usual cliched Hollywood romance staples. This film is based on a true story, and they keep it grounded very squarely in reality. All of the characters feel real; there aren’t any ridiculous, over-the-top set pieces; and there is no mad dash to the airport/train station/boat dock at the last moment.

Third, the film values what few other Hollywood blockbusters seem to value: the institution of marriage. Tatum plays a husband desperate to save his marriage and do whatever necessary to remain true to his vows. It’s the kind of film that, if you’re married, has you leaving the theater wanting to be a better spouse.

Enjoy the following interviews with Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum, as well as the film’s director, Michael Sucsy, the on love; marriage and divorce; and whether The Vow might help people struggling in their relationships.

    In my opinion, it’s not completely horrible, but it had a surprising lack of romance. It could’ve had the potential to be a cute tear-jerker, but is familiar and not very entertaining. Tatum is ok, but McAdams is the saving grace as she gives emotion to her role. Otherwise, an all too standard romance drama.
