The Notebook...

*sob* - Oh my goodness, what a tear jerker! A lovely movie and in the words of #1 dgd, "the ultimate love story." I read the book and blubbered, knew what was coming in the movie, and blubbered like a baby anyway. This one will really grab your heartstrings naturally, but if you've had any dealings with elderly dementia or Alzheimer's, it'll break your heart.

I love James Garner - he plays these roles so well; same for Gena Rowlands - she's such a class actress. Ryan Gosling - cutie! - and Rachel McAdams do a great job as the younger couple. We enjoyed it.

Yep, we both cried, too. How could anyone not cry?

Oh, I am digging this music.

Geez-I'm so out of touch that I've never even heard of it. Sounds like a must-see though.
I love your movies reviews!
