I didn't feel it was necessary to reveal the friend she made was actually the ghost of his wife. It turned what seemed to be a great romantic tale into some weird ghost story. And it changed how I felt about the entire film.
Otherwise, the movie was great. I felt the two leading actors had great on-screen chemistry and the characters were well developed.

I saw this movie with my wife and I was very surprised. I was expecting a chick flick type movie, but it had mystery and drama. Superb story. This is an excellent movie with excellent actors. I definitely recommend this movie. God bless!

They changed several things from the book, which always annoys me. However, I just love Josh Duhamel and he is reason alone to see the movie! :) Plus, as an added bonus, Julianne Hough was quite delightful. I have never seen her in anything before and I really liked her.
I can see where people who are not fans wouldn't much care for this movie, but I thought it was worth it since I had invested time in the book and I kept up with the hype on the Safe Haven Facebook page. I'm a sucker for a good romance. :)

Read and liked the book and was even more pleased with the movie. Always prefer a movie that presents a real story. Safe Haven did that extremely well. Well produced, well acted and filmed in an environment that delivered on the small town atmosphere described in the original book.

Loved the movie, the scenery, the chemistry between the actors, the story, loved how they ended it which was hard to picture in the book. I live in Wilmington NC so it was a plus to see our beautiful area.
