Jeremy of The Daily Rotation wrote, "There’s nothing really wrong with The Vow on a basic romantic drama level, but there’s nothing that’s really right about it either. It’s a decent film in terms of acting and story, but it feels like something that’s been done before. Michael Sucsy‘s film is meant to bring out warm and fuzzy emotions that deal with rediscovering love and never giving up on your soul mate and that’s fine and dandy for the specific crowd the film pertains to, but for anyone else looking for something new; something that stars Rachel McAdams and Channing Tatum haven’t done before, well then you’ll have to look elsewhere. The Vow is a highlight reel of their previous roles in other various romantic films they’ve been it. It’s not horrible, but it’s not that creative."
