The Notebook

So, I told you all yesterday that I was going to watch The Notebook. Well I must have a tough skin because I only teared up during one part of the movie and the tears NEVER DROPPED! I dunno what was going on, but I did ok! My boyfriend was shocked!

For those of you who haven't seen it, I won't ruin anything for you, I promise! I agree with bayctygrl who said she thought it was just ok. I wish the storyline had been a little more unexpected, it was a bit cliched for me, but maybe I'm a tough critic. If you like a romance and don't mind the sad that Nicholas Sparks is known for, see it & decide for yourself. I did like the performances of the actors in the film though. I thought they all were wonderful. Ryan Gosling is pretty dreamy too! Not a bad way to spend 2 hours, even if looking at him is the most enjoyable part!

I did find it odd how many extras they offered on the DVD though. I've seen less extras on a science fiction film, and you know how the sci fi fans like extras!  They offered about 10 deleted scenes, the film with commentary from the director & the film with commentary from Nicholas Sparks. You could even watch the deleted scenes with commentary if you wanted to. I'm not sure who out there would want to watch all of that...

Have a great weekend everyone! And enjoy the rest of your Friday!

I didn't cry during the Notebook either. Although I'll confess, A Walk to Remember was the Nicholas Sparks movie that made me sob like a baby! It's a really cute movie.
