Safe Haven: Safe but Sorry?
Take one mysterious damsel in distress. Add one hunky grieving widower. And what you get is a predictable love store with just enough intrigue to keep undiscriminating moviegoers, like the Movie Slut, watching.
Katie — or is that her real name?— is on the run. From whom we do not know. She boards a bus that takes her to a small North Carolina coastal town. It's safe for a time but flashbacks reveal snippets of her past travail and the man (of course it's a man) who's on her trail.
So what happens in this movie billed as the perfect date flick? No need for a spoiler alert here. Nicholas Sparks wrote the screenplay.
