Great movie - Love a good romance!

This movie is wonderful for anyone who's a sucker for a good romance! It was heartfelt and sweet, with a great 'opposites attract' vibe. The story was intriguing, complicated, and realistic in the sense that at no point did the movie really lose credibility. This is a great feature in a movie, because it allows you to connect with the plot and characters in a different way than you do in fantasies and obviously fictional stories. This was an absolutely wonderful movie, and I would recommend it to anyone who just wants a romance with a great plot. There were some sexual scenes, but nothing particularly graphic. I think that parents or kids can decide what they feel comfortable with, but I could see it being appropriate for like 12 and up, I just decided to play it safe with a 13 age rating. Little bit of violence and some mentions of drugs and occasional swearing. Would definitely recommend!!

Cute Movie

I absolutely loved this movie. Although I would not recommend for anyone under 15 because of the wedding night scene. It was super cute and showed the struggles of military families.
