    My mom concluded that it means that you're a lesbian...but to her logic you're not a full lesbian unless you hate the Notebook AND love the Three Stooges.

    Read the book .. Didn't know there was a film but have no intentions of watching it (same with Dan Brown's books/films).

    I enjoyed it .. I envisioned the house, the lake, their interactions .. he loved her and wanted to spend his remaining time reminding her just how much he loved her .. It was soppy and romantic.

    Romantic novels are not really my thing otherwise.

    I didn't like it. The scenes that were supposed to be euphoric and powerful just seemed insipid to me. I was very open to a sweeping romantic story, but in every way it seemed especially phony.


    *spoilers* :rolli:

    It irks me how they portrayed Alzheimer's disease. It doesn't look that way. Its far less neat and glamorous and its infinitely sadder.

    Disliked it intensely, hence why I've not finished watching it once. The female lead was insipid and annoying. The male lead, unrealistic.

    I love the movie!
    Hate the book, all his books are so terrible.
    I think the movie worked because of the chemistry between the actress and actor and the quality/skills of those two. They portrayed the characters very well. They were likable, interesting, slightly mysterious and very believable. Both of them.

    I make fun of Nicholas Sparks as a writer on a weekly basis, but I definitely thought the movie worked. I usually watch it when I'm feeling sad and hopeless and want to wallow in emotion. I agree that it's over-the-top, but it works for times when I can be completely alone and crying in my room

    I am unsure. I've developed the same problem with The Notebook as I have with certain other romance movies: that much of the conflict and sadness in these stories could be avoided if the characters simply talked to each other and didn't jump to conclusions - and that they don't take real, direct action toward their love instead of Hollywood serendipity and "romantic coincidence" being responsible for plot points and the development of their relationship.
