Safe Haven's feel good formula.
The movie is proof that Hollywood doesn't always have to resort to violence or special-effects to entertain us. This was a thoroughly delightful movie in that it had a pretty girl, a suspenseful plot, lighthearted moments, and a backstory well hidden until the end. My wife and I are avid movie goers but we rarely go out during the week. This movie was perfect for Valentine's Day. I knew the first time that I saw Julianna Hough on dancing with the stars that there would be many more opportunities. This movie gave her a great story to demonstrate her acting skills. Safe Havens will likely be on the Academy radar, but it's a good movie, a twisting plot, fine acting and well worth seeing.
