Romance Mixes with Dogs in New Trailer for 'The Choice'

Man, is there any difference between a Nicholas Sparks movie and a Lifetime movie at this point? The dogs, the car crash, the cheating, the pop music soundtrack, it's all just so...ugh. It's coming out next February, but I really think these movies are just parodies of themselves by now, and besides that, who even sees them? Have any of these been a hit since The Notebook? And seriously, what the hell is Tom Wilkinson doing in this?
