Compelling drama, forced dialogue

Overall, the acting in this movie is pretty compelling. It really tugs a lot of emotional strings. The plot goes from one tragedy to the next, until the surprising finale. Robert Pattinson is the only exception - he seemed like he was trying too hard. The dialogue often sounded too forced, particularly during the confrontational scenes. I kept thinking, who really talks like that? Nonetheless, it's an entertaining movie if you like dramas and pretty well done.

Pros: Great acting...     Cons: ...horribly formulaic plot, terrible ending, somewhat of a pointless film.     The Bottom Line: Robert Pattinson manages to escape the glittery skin and vampires, but he's still stuck with bad plots...     Most anyone who knows me knows that I am a reluctant Twilight fan-girl.  Though the books aren't great, and the movies are arguably worse, I've fallen for lead actor, Robert Pattinson, like any self-respecting …

A title like "Remember Me" is automatically mysterious. Who is making that statement? Who is it directed at? Why is it being made? It is something a character is requesting, or is it actually a theme that carries all throughout? Is it both? I wouldn't be asking these questions if it weren't for the ending of this film, which, I admit, I have no idea how to feel about. I do know that it will divide audiences. Some will see it as powerful while others will see it as emotionally manipulative, perhaps …

Rebel Without a CausemeetsOrdinary Peoplein postmillennial Manhattan, resulting inHollywoodlanddirector Allen Coulter'sRemember Me.Twilight's tousle-haired Robert Pattinson plays Tyler, a chain-smoking New York University student with a substantial chip on his shoulder. Drifting through life devoid of ambition, he lost his older brother to suicide, his parents are divorced, and his father, Charles (Pierce Brosnan), spends more time in the boardroom than with his kids (Lena Olin plays Tyler's mother). Tyler takes refuge in his friendships with wisecracking roommate Aidan (Tate Ellington) and artistic younger sister Caroline (Ruby Jerins). One night, he and Aidan enter a scuffle outside a club, and Sergeant Craig (Chris Cooper) takes him in for mouthing off, even though he was trying to break things up. When Aidan discovers that they go to school with Craig's daughter, Ally (Lost's Emilie de Ravin), he dares his pal to date and dump the Queens coed to get back at Craig. Game for anything, Tyler gives it a try, and Ally takes the bait, but he puts all thoughts of revenge aside when he finds himself falling in love. Ten years before, Ally lost her mother (Martha Plimpton in an unbilled cameo), and she understands him better than most anyone else, but the timing is off, and the events of 9/11 will change the lives of both families forever. The descent toward melodrama at the end threatens to derail Coulter's delicate project, but he sets things right in ...
