for someone who loves these sorts of stories, it would be a fantastic movie

I prepared myself for a tearjerker; what I didn't prepare for was an outright gusher.

...one of contemporary cinema's most compelling and flat-out indelible love stories.

A potently rich story about the power of love, The Notebook is heartbreakingly beautiful and achingly real.

Ssomehow Cassavetes pulls it off -- thanks mainly to sensitive performances and pretty Hallmark-card cinematography by Robert Fraisse.
May 23, 2007
A sentimental film filled with flashbacks and clichés.
September 27, 2006
A thoughtful, emotionally rich film in which we see that great love, like deep faith, is forged on doubt, trials, and hardships. Only then does it deliver its deepest rewards.

Amid the sticky-sweet swamp of Jeremy Leven's script, Rowlands and Garner emerge spotless and beatific, lending a near-miraculous credibility to their scenes together.

I cannot believe I'm about to recommend a movie as clogged with melodramatic treacle as Nick Cassavetes' adaptation of The Notebook.

... one gets the sense that director Nick Cassevetes and writer Jan Sardi would spray the audience with teargas if they could.

The Notebook is a weepie of the most artificial and insistent variety, the kind that holds viewers hostage and expects them to pay in body fluids. Will it jerk your tears? Maybe. Or maybe you'll just feel jerked around.

Whether someone can enjoy The Notebook or not depends much of the mood in which the viewers find themselves.

It's an interesting piece of counter programming on New Line's part, the only question is why didn't it go direct to cable?
February 23, 2005
Two parts idiotic romance, one part offensive melodrama.
February 18, 2005
A fine tale that will leave romantics everywhere misty eyed.

*There's nothing about The Notebook that isn't either lazy or dismissive of its audience.
January 5, 2005
A mawkish romance; one of the year's 10 worst
