( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Based on the novel by Nicholas Sparks, The Longest Ride is a classic romantic tear-jerker - and its ready to take home blu-ray, check out the Kidzworld Review.

Based on the bestselling novel by master storyteller Sparks, THE LONGEST RIDE centers on the star-crossed love affair between Luke, a former champion bull rider looking to make a comeback, and Sophia, a college student who is about to embark upon her dream job in New York City’s art world.  As conflicting paths and ideals test their relationship, Sophia and Luke make an unexpected connection with Ira, whose memories of his own decades-long romance with his beloved wife deeply inspire the young couple.  Spanning generations and two intertwining love stories, THE LONGEST RIDE explores the challenges and infinite rewards of enduring love.

The Bottom Line

It may be on the cheesy side (like pretty much all of Nicholas Sparks' books and movies), but The Longest Ride is guaranteed to make you cry. It's a classic story, city girl meets country boy, they fall for each other, but are their lives are so different, will it ever work? Britt Robertson and Scott Eastman have real chemistry in this tear-jerker, and that's what really makes the difference - and they're not bad to look at either! Scott Eastman is the son of legendary Westerns film actor Clint Eastwood, so playing the part of the rural stud who loves bull riding (even though it might kill him) really comes naturally.

This blu-ray has some nice special features, for fans of the author the "A Writer’s Journey: A Day in the Life of Nicholas Sparks" featurette is a nice touch, and there are two different special features on bull riding, which is obviously fascinating - how many people do you know ride bulls?

The Longest Ride is a nice addition to your collection for romance fans, perfect for days you're feeling sappy.
