The problem with Nights In Rodanthe is not that it's a schmaltzy romance. There's a time and a place for a good pass-the-hankies weepie love story, and you won't go to see this unless that's what you're after. No, the problem here is that this is so intensely overwrought and manipulative that there are moments where you'll want to throw your shoes at the screen. It's a BAD schmaltzy romance, and in movie terms there are few things more irksome.

Exhibits a certain amount of integrity in its dedication to being uncomplicated, unashamed romantic goo.

Hardly groundbreaking, but for those with an appetite for an increasingly rare gust of unapologetic romance, well, as they say, any port in a storm.

It's no wonder the faithful continue to forsake the movies, given junky embarrassments like Nights in Rodanthe.

The movie attempts to jerk tears with one clunky device after another, in a plot that is a perfect storm of cliche and contrivance. In fact, it even contains a storm -- an imperfect one.

Good performances, great location but terribly predictable and derivative.

A tasteful melodrama courtesy of the easy chemistry between its two leads and a generally restrained touch from Tony-winning director George C. Wolfe in his feature debut.

It's like "The Bridges Of Madison County" with more shouting, only not nearly as good. No surprises whatsoever, but nice scenery, attractive stars and another credible, affecting performance from Lane that hoiks it up an extra star.
