I really enjoyed watching this movie, The Longest Ride. My two daughters and I have always been huge fans of novels written by author Nicholas Sparks that have been turned into amazing movies. Among our favorites include The Last Song, Dear John, Safe Haven and The Lucky One. As my youngest daughter told me, all Nicholas Sparks stories involve a cute guy and pretty girl that meet, fall in love, face various obstacles along the way, break up, someone dies, and then they get back together.
