The Notebook blu-ray £5.49 @ HMV

Perfect present for wife, girlfriend or mum.

When you consider that old-fashioned tearjerkers are an endangered species in Hollywood, a movie like The Notebook can be embraced without apology. Yes, it's syrupy sweet and clogged with clichés, and one can only marvel at the irony of Nick Cassavetes directing a weeper that his late father John--whose own films were devoid of saccharine sentiment--would have sneered at. Still, this touchingly impassioned and great-looking adaptation of the popular Nicholas Sparks novel has much to recommend, including appealing young costars (Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams) and appealing old costars (James Garner and Gena Rowlands, the director's mother) playing the same loving couple in (respectively) early 1940s and present-day North Carolina. He was poor, she was rich, and you can guess the rest; decades later, he's unabashedly devoted, and she's drifting into the memory-loss of senile dementia. How their love endured is the story preserved in the titular notebook that he reads to her in their twilight years. The movie's open to ridicule, but as a delicate tearjerker it works just fine. Message in a Bottle and A Walk to Remember were also based on Sparks novels, suggesting a triple-feature that hopeless romantics will cherish.

I'd have preferred more scenes with James Garner, decent enough film though.

Bit sexist. I'd be gutted if someone got me this, solely on the grounds that I am a woman! oO

You probably would never have time to watch it with being stuck in the kitchen. (_;)

This is a good film, despite it not being my usuyal type I really enjoyed it

Haven't seen it on blu-ray, but I imagine Rachel McAdams looks even damn hotter
