Adrienne (Diane Lane), a woman still reeling from her husband's betrayal and struggling to rebuild a life without him, has just learned that he wants to come home. Torn by conflicting feelings, she welcomes the chance for escape when an old friend asks her to manage her inn in Rodanthe for a weekend. There, on a remote spot along the Outer Banks of North Carolina, Adrienne hopes to find the tranquility she needs to rethink her life. It's the off-season and the inn would be shuttered but for the unlikely arrival of its solitary guest, Paul (Richard Gere), a doctor from the city. A man who long ago sacrificed his family to his career, Paul has come to Rodanthe to fulfill a difficult obligation and to face his own crisis of conscience. They are two strangers sharing the same roof. But as a major storm closes in, they turn to each other for comfort, and set in motion a life-changing romance that will resonate through the rest of their lives.

The beautiful shoreside house has more "romance" than this clumsy film. Both actors try hard but the weak script doesn't add up. Also, it's hard to believe that given the storm warning level, intelligent people would choose to stay on and not evacuate. Note this was adapted by the romance writer of "The Notebook".

A bit contrived and cliche. But the underlying story is good. It would have helped more if the father and son, Drs. Paul Flanner and Mark Flanner, part of the story had been fleshed out more and it would have rounded out and given more depth to the film. Great actors doing as best as they could with a weak script. Interesting that James Franco as Dr. Mark Flanner is not credited neither in the rolling credits on screen nor in the full record for this DVD in the library catalog . . . Odd, unless it was considered a cameo appearance? But it wasn’t. It was a role with 3 to 4 scenes and not a mere walk on or one brief scene.

At first I thought they were going to stay together but anything that has to do with Nicholas Sparks is depressing. If there isn't some great calamity I guess he doesn't consider it a story.
Totally pathetic and I wouldn't recommend it. Don't even go near it. As regards his books .....

I was very disappointed in the movie. I read the book first and the movie isn't even close to the story line of the book.

Disappointing, even for the low regard I was holding it in before screening it. I wouldn't recommend, even to Nick Sparks fans.

Loved the house, the beach, and how Gere and Lane's wardrobes matched the house and the beach. Didn't love the acting or the screenplay, so I gave the movie a grudging 30 minutes then turned it off. Also didn't love the NO CHEMISTRY. C'mon Richard Gere! That's Diane Lane you got there. Do something with her!
