Safe Haven offers an unsurprising but not unsatisfying tour through recognizable Sparkville terrain.

While none of the elements of this Valentine Day release chick-flick are remarkable in themselves, in the gifted hands of director Lasse Hallström, there is definitely magic at work.

The climactic inferno, which explodes whatever credibility the movie built up, is immediately followed by a cheap, out-of-the-blue supernatural twist.

Long on beauty shots, short on depth and seriously intent on tugging your heartstrings.

A thriller element that has not been present in earlier Sparks movies is designed to draw reluctant male viewers to see the picture, but they won’t respond with the same enthusiasm as his core audience of woozy romantics.

Either the filmmakers were out of their minds, or they must think we're out of our minds to buy into this schmaltz.
