Travis (Walker) meets Gabby (Palmer) who lives next door and their romance seems like a bit of a small town fairy tale until the inevitable bumps in the road are to be dealt with. Despite the good times, Southern twangs, barbecues, beers and bonhomie, will this romance blossom into something long lasting?
A lot of us would have come across stock photography in some form or another in our day-to-day lives. Picture-perfect posed moments where the subjects show off admirable dentistry and hairstyles that are always immaculate. The Choice is a feature-film length version of that.
Relationship problems discussed with the gravity of solving the Middle East crisis by the protagonists placed in picturesque surroundings. Yes. And that, along with some sentimental moments as well as bits of humor thrown into what attempts to be a neatly-sewed romance package. Original? Nope. We've all seen these kinds of movies a million times before.
So what's new, you ask? Well, to Katz's credit, the North Carolina countryside does make this picture look pretty. The country, if seen as an inanimate character, dresses up the proceedings somewhat well. But as for the storyline, it makes a viewer feel like this is the kind of world where people have no other concerns and worries apart from discussing their love lives while seated on a patio. So at least, it is pleasant on the eye, by and large.
Apart from that, there's absolutely nothing to cling on to, as a viewer that can engage you about this movie in terms of emotional content. Yes, there are babes in two-piece bikinis frolicking around a bit but that does not a movie make. And it is lame. You also might find yourself looking for any one actor who puts up a performance at least strong enough for you think of as a redeeming factor. Unfortunately, there is none of that.
Without giving away any spoilers, suffice to say that Katz does attempt steer the storyline into deeper territory towards the finale of the film. Wanna watch it? Your choice, really.
