Ok, boys and girls. The Holiday Season is over… and the Spring Season, full of mini Blockbusters, is still months away.

Now Showing on Cable: “The Vow”

Making its debut on Starz this weekend was this winter’s surprise smash hit, “The Vow”.

Starring Channing Tatum and Rachel McAdams, “The Vow”‘s strategic Valentine’s weekend release helped it open at number one and stay strong on the chart, remaining in the top ten for six weeks and grossing just under $200 million worldwide.

It’s the story of a woman who loses her memory in a car accident, and as a result, forgets the entire period of time when she knew her husband. He’s a complete stranger to her. As a result, he has to fight to regain her affection all over again.

It makes for a surprisingly funny movie that entertains all the way through.
