Safe Haven: 5 Things to Swoon Over in the Movie Starring Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel

Safe Haven, Julianne Hough


Relativity Media

Bestselling romance author Nicholas Sparks is the king of damsels in distress fare. His latest flick to hit the big screen follows incognito Katie who flees an abusive spouse to hideout in a small North Carolina town. She tries to forget her past, start anew and be relationship-free. Check out her transformation from downer brunette to can-do blonde! Then shopkeeper Alex appears: a widower, with two kids, who fixes things, like bicycles and...broken hearts. Katie won't be able to resist for long. Obviously.

Safe Haven, Josh Duhamel, Julianne HoughWe tease, but we fell for this old-fashioned romantic thriller. Director Lasse Hallström (Hachi: A Dog's Tale) pushes every emotional button, every warmly lit shot to deliver, by the fiery finale, a satisfying cathartic cry on. Look no further to have your heart broken in theaters this V Day weekend. Here's why:

1. The Settings Sparks Picks Are Hard to Resist: As Katie makes new friends, learns to paint and ride a bike, the sleepy fishing town of Southport is a peaceful backdrop of pretty sunsets nearly all the time. There's even a corner store that has only one working door but tons of free books. Whatever that means.

Safe Haven, Cobie Smulders2. Hough and Duhamel Sizzle: Ever since her memorable turn in the remake of Footloose Hough has that girl next-door thing down. Duhamel is more relaxed falling for Hough than say, fighting along side Optimus Prime. Their heat boils over after a dark and stormy night leaves the couple stranded in abandoned diner.

3. Cobie Smulders Is a Great, New Friend: Katie's gal pal is a mysterious women played by How I Met Your Mother's. The whole film is very much like a two-hour mini vacay. For Smulders, that means a break from her usual sitcom zingers. There were times when we were hoping Katie would get more BFF time with her instead of Duhamel. Hough has chemistry with everyone. A nice problem to have. Well, maybe not...

4. The Big Bad From Revolution Is Still Bad: Too much attention can be bad, like a pesky cop hot on your heels. We're betting in real life actor David Lyons is a sweetheart, but he is way too convincing as a grade-A thorn in everyone's side as the man as Tierney. We wish he would just chill out with a doughnut. No coffee.

5. Flashbacks vs. Real Time: Most of the film takes place in Southport, which is effortlessly enjoyable. And then, there are a lot flashbacks and scenes with Tierney hunting for Katie, which break up the serene romance-building scenes between Katie and Alex. By the end, all the plot threads are tied up but there's one "gotcha!" moment too many. The heart of Safe Haven (all Sparks stories, really) is the woman and her man. For that reason, Safe Haven soars.

You probbaly haven't read the comments

But to explain briefly.
Boyfriend read online about park play date groups, we have no tmade any contact with these groups, or any plans to go to any parks yet.
Play dates that we have made are with dogs of friends, people we know, animals we know the temperment of.
Yesterday I scheduled a vet appointment for her to get her first round of vaccinations the day after we planned to bring her home. I thought she was going to be 9 weeks, didn't find out until today that its only 6... and jumped online to do some research and ask questions.
She is still safe at home with the owners of the mother, the rest of the litter, and I intend to talk to the owners about whether she might be able to stay a bit longer.

I'm sorry, but I haven't read up on

How the companies obtain it. That's a good question.
Viralys was first prescribed by my vet and I bought it through the hospital. When I figured out it is not a prescription product, I found a more affordable price on it (for me) online. I am guessing that has been tested through regular veterinary channels since it seems to be a more official product for vets.
As far as the Carlson's, it's made for human use so hopefully it is safe. They are a well-respected brand. In checking their website, it says it's from l-lysine monohydrochloride. Is that what you meant? I know it has to come from somewhere before that, but don't know the answer to the next level question, sorry

A possible raise in

To 34 years old. I haven't read about that in the New York Times online. Whoopee jobs for all. Well I guess I mean for those of us over 34. 2 wars in Iraq and Iran will soak up a lot of excess labor and boost labor market prospects for the "ineligible".
I don't want to sound cynical - I will be admiring your sacrifice from a safe distance.
Hey! kids! what do you think of tie-dyed body bags!!! instead of those drab green ones.

Thanks for this explanation.

To be sure, I haven't read SOPA and I don't come close to understanding the concepts behind all this. It's just hard for me to believe that Facebook, Twitter, and Google would jointly complain about something if that complaint was completely baseless. So I'd like to understand the criticism of SOPA.
here is Congress explicitly saying that they don't mean to abrogate those safe harbor provisions.
Okay, I can see that. Can you explain what's being said here:
The Stop Online Piracy Act doesn't expressly modify 17 USC 512. Nevertheless, it is a full-fledged assault on the safe harbor's scheme. It employs the same basic notice-and-takedown structure of 512, but it applies the cutoff obligations to payment processors and ad networks

  • Avatar ThisIsShe. Can you physically feel sad?
    May 15, 2013 by ThisIsShe. | Posted in Mental Health

    I know it's a weird question, and maybe it's not clear enough. But sometimes I think that I can actually feel it, like I have no motivation to even move. I feel it all day. It almost hurts. I feel that I am deeply sad, for no reason. Thanks.

    • There are aches and pains that can come with depression, but I don't think that's what you're talking about. I would say that the physical sensation that's most noticeable is the way breathing changes. Shallow breathing …dGYM. It’s offered by a university.
