    After seeing "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days", I vowed to never watch another chickflick unless I was trying to get laid out of the deal. I sucked in my pride and rented "The Notebook" last night, mostly because I like Ryan Gosling, but I have to say this movie is incredible.

    This is the first movie I have came really close to shedding a tear in. Of course, I did the manly thing to do, so I puffed out my chest, grabbed my balls, started cursing and started talking about football.

    I bought the book today and so far it isn't as good as the movie. Great movie though! Watch it!

    (If you are questioning my movie judgement, my two favorite movies are Gladiator and Troy incase you thought I was a woman)

    My girl has seen it 6 times and cries every time. I thought it was just okay. Definately a good story, but too predictable.

    I liked it a lot more than I thought I would.

    The mother was such a bitch.

    I thought the movie was okay. My wife cried like 4 times during the movie, though.

    My gf made me watch it with her. It wasn't too bad, but I didn't like it enough to own it.

    I agree. saying you like troy doesn't give you much credit.

    otherwise, in for another guy who liked notebook. it was really good.

    The Notebook sucked ass If you think about its about a girl who cheats and lies on her fiance, and a guy who strings a girl on for sex. If you shed a tear on this movie u're a stupid pansey with no taste in movies.

    I loved the book but the movie was terrible. They made up lots of stuff and the cheese factor just went through the roof. I was so mad when I came out of the theatre. Those who don't know any better like it.
