Kernel Rating (out of 5):
MPAA Rating: PG-13 Length: 104 minutes
Age Appropriate for: 15+. A slow-motion car accident, a few implied sex scenes (no frontal nudity, but Channing Tatum’s butt), and mild cursing.
‘The Vow’ is not the new ‘The Notebook’ or the new ‘Titanic,’ but it’s an effective Valentine’s Day flick for teens and adults looking for a little affirmation about the power of love.

Channing Tatum will be everywhere this year, co-headlining “The Vow,” already appearing in January’s “Haywire,” and slated to star in about five more films throughout 2012. And after his genuine, emotive performance in the tear-jerker, “The Vow,” I’m OK with Channing’s upcoming ubiquity. In fact, I look forward to it.
