Dear John....

So I just watched that movie. O-M-G His rank was on his Class A's upside down for an entire scene. Maybe more...but that is when I noticed it. Seriously? lol. How do you miss that?!

Not a bad girly movie...but man....I was pretty dissapointed lol.

And yes...I know I am late. DH and I can't go see movies in the theater.....we have a 13 month old and a 2 month old lol.

Editing this to point out that I do know that their uniforms have to be slightly different. But in movies they tend ot make the differences more subtle. So when I saw this big upside down rank in the front of a camera shot...I thought it HAD to be an accident. I thought the difference would have been a bit more subtle.

The book was 10000% better than the movie.
All movies have mistakes so something like the uniform doesn't bother me at all. I just think Amanda Seyfried wasn't the best choice for the role, her acting annoys me.

It wouldn't have annoyed me...if it wasn't pretty much in a close up. And they kept cutting back and forth between Amanda Seyfried...and him.....and every time it would cut back, I was looking if it was fixed lol.

I don't know....the story was just kind of weird. It wasn't a terrible movie, but I am glad we didn;t go to the theaters for it. And yeah....she annoys me too lol.

I don't really know if I would like the book better. The part of the movie that really irritated me...was that she left him for that guy because he "needed someone to care for him and Allan". I was like....seriously? So....if that is how it is in the book...I would read the whole thing just for the ending to irritate me lol.

My husband is always noticing things like this on military uniforms.  He said that they are not allowed to portray it properly.  I can't remember why, but he points it out everytime he can!

The rank thing will irritate you too. lol. It is messed up on his uniform for a hot minute....and it is just staring you in the face.

I might just be a bit OCD about it....my friend was like "well you are married to a guy in the Army...so of course you would pick the movie apart." I was like...no not really. I went into it with a very open mind....and that was the only thing that was obvious enough to catch my eye.
