“…refreshing ordinariness…” Kimberly Jones, Austin Chronicle


“It’s a bad movie.” Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel


Still brooding, still an outsider and still not a great actor, Twilight’s Pattinson stars in his first major non-vampire film role in this mediocre romantic drama. As Tyler, he plays a rebellious young New Yorker struggling to find meaning in his life after a tragic family event until he falls in love with the equally lost Ally (Lost’s de Ravin). While the characters themselves are interesting and complex, the acting from Pattinson is weak and from de Ravin it is forgettable. What is strong, however, is their chemistry. Still, Remember Me suffers mostly because their romance and tragic circumstances feel forced and often cloying due to its overemphasized message of cherishing every day.
