They don’t get much dopier than this juvenile jumble of clunky clichés. A car crash causes a young wife (Rachel McAdams) to lose all memory of the last five years, a period during which she shook off her overbearing parents (Sam Neill and Jessica Lange simultaneously hitting career lows), forsook law school for art school, and met and married Channing Tatum. But, by golly, he decides to fight to win her love once again. Just shoot me. Now, ladies, be honest. Abs aside, wouldn’t you jump at a get-out-of-marriage-to-Tatum-free card? Suitable only as punishment for misbehaving husbands or boyfriends.
