Product Description

Behind every great love is a great story. As teenagers, Allie (Rachel McAdams) and Noah (Ryan Gosling) begin a whirlwind courtship that soon blossoms into tender intimacy. The young couple is quickly separated by Allie's upper-class parents who insist that Noah isn't right for her. Several years pass, and when they meet again, their passion is rekindled, forcing Allie to choose between her soulmate and class order. This beautiful tale has a particularly special meaning to an older gentleman (James Garner) who regularly reads the timeless love story to his aging companion (Gena Rowlands). Based on the best-selling novel by Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook is at once heartwarming and heartbreaking and will capture you in its sweeping and emotional force.

This movie is a must watch! They couldn't have picked any two better actors for this role you believe everything that they do in every scene for awhile you get lost in the movie and can feel all the emotions of the movie! Their chemistry and love story is such a heart warming and emotional love spell that you get lost in their love

This movie doesn't even need a review. It is amazing and everyone should watch it! That's all that needs to be said. But just know this is the greatest love story I have ever experienced and it will make you think about your true love and or the one that got away if you have that in your life. You will need Kleenexes...

While not quite as good as reading the book this movie is a true love story sure to leave you crying and smiling with complete fondness by the end. The romantic entanglement of Noah and Allie as told by Noah many years later while him and Allie are in the nursing home due to Allies dementia.

Makes me cry every time.. the perfect love story. Not too cheesy and the end is so sweet and makes me cry. I love the end and I love the beginning when they first fall in love and are crazy for each other. I could watch this all the time. It’s a pretty long movie though. But the plot is great

The hits just KEEP COMING with this movie. Just when you think you won't need to cry anymore, something else gut wrenching happens. Don't get me wrong- it is a lovely love story. It is cute and funny and happy- just gut wrenchingly heart-breaking along the way. Not that that is a bad thing...

I like this movie but I honestly don’t see what all the hype is. It’s super cute but I don’t understand why it’s so popular. When I first watched it I was super hyped about it but then it just was a little underwhelming. I think it is worth the watch but I don’t need to watch it all the time.

I have watched this movie over and over and every time it never fails to bring tears to my eyes and pull on my heart strings. It's the perfect love story, I love every part of this romance movie. Ryan Gosling brought Noah to life in a way that not many actors could.
