With the Vietnam war raging, one man will make a decision that tests his own morals, ethics and view on American life: fight for his country or go skinny dipping with Teresa Palmer? Yes, those are quandaries Liam Hemsworth faces in "Love and Honor," the kind of movie Channing Tatum used to do.
First-time director Danny Mooney takes on the script penned by Jim Burnstein and Garrett Schiff that is apparently based on a true story of an American soldier who gets dumped while serving overseas and goes AWOL with his buddy to win back his girlfriend, only to fall for someone else entirely. And also learn about hippies and anti-war protesting along the way. Shot with an autumnal sheen worthy of Thomas Kinkade, this sales trailer is some pretty soppy, sappy stuff that doesn't know an emotional beat it can't beat down with a sledgehammer. So yes, you will get a scene of Palmer tearfully imploring Hemsworth don't go. Also: we didn't know they made teal Che Guevara shirts.
The film is currently without distribution, but we'd wager it'll find a home and satiate the demographic that's out there for this thing. We're just not it. Watch below.[Vlicious!]
