Opening this weekend is yet another adaptation of one of Nicholas Sparks’ romantic novels, The Best of Me, starring James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan. This makes the ninth Sparks novel to find its way to the big screen with another one (The Longest Ride) coming in April. Since 1999, when his first adaptation appeared in theaters, there have been countless Sparks-like stories to flood theaters. Films, such as The Vow and Remember Me, play on many of the author’s most popular tropes that its hard to know whether or not you’re watching an authentic “Nicholas Sparks Film” (NSF).
The only thing better than a super passionate romance is a steamy love triangle. In the new movie, The Host, Saoirse Ronan is torn between getting to make out with the exceptionally hot Max Irons all the time, and getting to make out with the very, very sexy Jake Abel all the time. Thus begging the following very important questions: Whom will she choose? How will she choose? How many make out scenes will there be? What is the steamiest movie love triangle of all time?!?!?!?
