Product Description

Amazon.ca

When you consider that old-fashioned tearjerkers are an endangered species in Hollywood, a movie like The Notebook can be embraced without apology. Yes, it's syrupy sweet and clogged with clichés, and one can only marvel at the irony of Nick Cassavetes directing a weeper that his late father John--whose own films were devoid of saccharine sentiment--would have sneered at. Still, this touchingly impassioned and great-looking adaptation of the popular Nicholas Sparks novel has much to recommend, including appealing young costars (Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams) and appealing old costars (James Garner and Gena Rowlands, the director's mother) playing the same loving couple in (respectively) early 1940s and present-day North Carolina. He was poor, she was rich, and you can guess the rest; decades later, he's unabashedly devoted, and she's drifting into the memory-loss of senile dementia. How their love endured is the story preserved in the titular notebook that he reads to her in their twilight years. The movie's open to ridicule, but as a delicate tearjerker it works just fine. Message in a Bottle and A Walk to Remember were also based on Sparks novels, suggesting a triple-feature that hopeless romantics will cherish. --Jeff Shannon

4.0 out of 5 stars Notebook one of the best love stories ever made Sept. 9 2005
Format:DVD
The Notebook is set in an old Southern rest home for the elerly, the film follows four individuals through their respective life journeys. An older man (James Jarner) has volunteered his time to read to an infirm elderly woman (Gena Rowlands). The story he chooses to read her tells about the love of a young couple (Reachel Mcadams and Ryan GOsling) seperated first by social status and later on by war.
As the film progresses the couple (Rachel Mcadams and Ryan Gosling) form this amazing emotional depth to the story that simply makes you fall in love wiht the movie. This story definetely opened the tear ducts. My favorite part of the movie ws the ending which really struck me and this movie will probablly stay with me for the rest of my life.
This is a mature story about enduring love, sacrifice commitment and appriciation of you life partner. I think this movie presnted a good message in every day life which is the power of believing and those who really love and believe nuthing can be impossible.

I have to start out by saying that I was not a huge Nicholas Sparks fan, I had read "A walk to remember", and had seen the film version of it, as well as the film "message in a bottle"...I wasn't taken by either of them...they fell short in my books. So when I saw this DVD in the video store, I picked it up because frankly there was nothing else to get...but I am so glad that I did.
I have often said that if a movie can make me cry...it will be a favorite of mine for ALL time! This story is so sweet and heartwarming. Beyond the story, I think that the actors did an amazing job of portraying the characters. I fell in love with Noah Calhoun along side Allie...I even said to my husband half way through, "I really like that guy...he's really cool!!" There is just something about him, that drew me in. (Ryan Gosling)
I love that throughout the story you never really know whether the man reading Allie the story is Noah, or Lon...they leave you guessing until the end (I won't give away the secret!!) But after the movie my husband and I were saying that either way...it would have been alright.
It is a MUST see in my books...the actors are amazing, and the story is amazing!! I felt emotionally drained after watching it!! There is nothing like a good cry...especially when it is not something in your own life that you are crying about!!
I LOVED IT!!
5 stars!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Love That Stands the Test of Time... Feb. 9 2005
Format:DVD
A tale of love at first sight, "The Notebook" is a story about finding a love that endures the test of time. Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) is no one special. He leads his life as best as he can, until one summer evening, Allie Hamilton (Rachel McAdams) steps into his life. A simple courtship soon turns into a true summer love. Allie and Noah fight for their relationship as Allie's upper-class parents insist that Noah is not good enough for a girl of her status. Separated by meddling parents, the two live out their separate lives. Several years later, they meet again. Their passion is rekindled and soon, Allie is forced to choose between Noah and her new, upper-class fiancé (played by James Marsden).
Many years later, an older Noah (James Garner) shares this special and intimate story with his wife (Gena Rowland). Each day, he reads a portion of the notebook, where the stories of a younger Allie and Noah are captured on rippling pages.
Based on the bestselling novel by Nicholas Sparks, "The Notebook" moves back and forth from past to present, as an aged couple revisits history and relives a romance that began during a summer so long ago.
A must-see for all the romantics of the world, the movie is a bittersweet mix of joy and heartbreak. A definite tear-jerker, this movie is for those who believe that true love CAN last despite years of separation.
The actors do an amazing job. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams are realistic and believable as they deliver a powerful performance that moves with such great emotional force. The DVD also includes many deleted scenes; a definite essential for any romantic movie fan. There are many other enjoyable features such as screen tests, movie-documentaries, and commentaries (just to name a few).
A must-have for every romantic's movie-library, "The Notebook" is a movie that will never leave your heart and will leave you believing that true love CAN last a lifetime.

I personally never liked romantic movies...i'm more into the horror/action genre but i do enjoy a good heartwarming film once and a while, and well after so long of not wanting to watch this movie, my girlfriend got fed up and set up this night for us to watch this film.
She's seen the movie twice and loved it too death, she said it reminds her of our relationship.
So there i am watching it and by the middle of the film, my girlfriend is balling her eyes out and myself, dry as the arizona desert.
So the film finally ends, she asks me what i thought..."cute" i said and she's like "what? cute? come on..it was beautiful!"
So instead of getting into a big discussion on this film, i just told that yes, i did actually like it...now i'm a bit lying, cause although it was good, it was not the best romantic film i've ever seen but yes it was nice.
If your a girl, i think you'll love this movie, if your a guy like me with some feeling inside you, then it's a cute movie to watch with a girlfriend or a girl, but i wouldn't watch it alone..i find there's no point!
Sorry..hope that wasn't too mean!
...last thing, the ending was very nice and sweet, see i said something nice!
Now babe, can we watch Hostel?
