The Notebook

24 posts in this topic

If you are a husband, and you haven't sat down with your wife to watch this movie; you are missing out! My husband, bless his heart, has watched this with me twice now, and I am blubbering through it. It's such a sad but beautiful love story. That is my movie pick for the night. :)

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Love 'The Notebook'. The wife and I have it on our movie shelf. Another good one is 'Sweet November'. My wife tells me Charlize Theron's character in that movie reminds her a lot of me. Which is just... weird, but I know what she means.[/i][/font]

[font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif][i]Good luck with your blubbering.[/i][/font]

Well, it went from The Notebook right into the Time Traveler's Wife on ABC Family tonight. My husband isn't sticking around for the second helping, but I am! :)

Hmmmm. From a male perspective. If you do watch 'The Notebook' with your woman. I suggest showing her another movie immediately afterwards that shows how bad men can be. That way the bar can be brought back down to reality.

Might I suggest. 'Wet Hot American Summer'? You have the jerk (Paul Rudd), the weird guy (Michael Showalter), the guy who's only goal in life is to get laid (Ken Marino), the guy that wants to get it on with a refrigerator (C Meloni) and Michael Ian Black. That way she should be grateful that she has you and not wishing you were more like Ryan Gosling (because who can compete with that?).

Who should try to compete with that? ;) We're happily married, so he shouldn't worry. Besides, Ryan Gosling is clear in L.A. ......

[i][font=trebuchet ms,helvetica,sans-serif]No, you show her a movie about the woman you wish she was so when she starts to hold you up to Noah's standard, you can hold her up to another woman's standards. For instance, Halle Berry in "Swordfish". Good luck, sweetie![/font][/i]

I think I'm the only woman on the planet that doesn't care for that movie. I'll take a movie with zombies and explosions over a love story any day of the week.
Ryan Gosling is very nice to look at though.

I don't know how '100 girls' stands up. Remember watching it in college a few times and liking it in a guilty pleasure type way. I just checked the votes distributions on IMDB and I share a liking with the Under 18 Female crowd. Go Figure!

Not exactly something I would recommend. We all have our guilty pleasures that don't pass other's tests.
