Movie Review by Jessica
March 8th, 2007

The sweetest movie ever!

The Notebook deserves more credit then it receives. This is a wonderful love story. The movie revolves around Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) and Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling). Allie Hamilton comes to Seabrook, North Carolina (this was special to me because I am from North Carolina and its thrilling to see anything set around me) to spend the summer with her family. While at a Carnival she meets a local boy, Noah Calhoun. Right away you can tell these two are destined to be together.

Allie's mother and father are not happy with Allie's relationship with Noah. His family is poor and her family is wealthy so they automatically think he is not good enough for their daughter. Sallie's parents become determined to separate the two for good so they force Allie to move away. Their relationship is never forgotten between each other and after waiting 7 years Allie moves back to Seabrook. She gets engaged to a wealthy young solider named Lon (James Marsden). Her parents approve because they feel he is worthy of Allie.

Allie met Lon while she was working at a GI hospital. Allies life is going great until she sees the newspaper, on the front page it's Noah standing in front of a 200 year old house. This happens to be the same house where he had taken Allie to on one of their romantic dates. She had told him exactly how she would make the house and he restored the house exactly the way Allie wanted it. Allie goes to the house to see Noah.

After having an affair for several nights with Noah, Allie must now decide wether her love for him is great and real enough for her to cancel her marriage and leave her fiance Lon.

This movie was critically acclaimed it is a girly flick but anyone who respects or enjoys film should get plenty of satisfaction watching a masterpiece like this!

Did you know that while filming of this movie was going on McAdams and Gosling actually couldn't stand one another?

Two years later and they're dating.

Oh, and this movie sucks.

I tried to like it .....kinda due to the fact that the the song used was done by that girl from "Veruca Salt"....lame reason for giving this film a try but thats the way my brain works. The film was arse and not your common garden variety arse either, we're talkin some heavy duty fat bastard arse.

Alright, so I'll be the "guy" to step in the bear trap set by Tim and say I completely agree with Jessica - The Notebook is highly underrated. It's a very sweet film, and the conclusion is just as moving as heartbreaking. And it shook Ryan Gossling free of his nasty "Young Hercules" clout...
