Since my granddaughter has decided to practice her writing skills once more, I was browsing through her Blogger profile and ran across the fact that her favorite movie was The Notebook. I rented it via Netflix and we watched it last night.

Caution! This movie shouldn't be viewed by old married us. It makes us cry.

Good acting by all, and though it seemed to drag at times, it was an excellent movie overall.

Other criticisms; the editing was sloppy, causing me to question "what", "how" and "why" in more than a few scenes... And since I was born in 1940; the ficticious date that the film began, some of the scenes from 7 or 8 years later didn't ring true for me. But who would notice that but the old folks, like me.

It is an incredible movie, that has brought tears to many eyes. In fact, I own the movie (I recommend it to everyone), and no matter how many times I watch it, I cry my eyes out. Josh always threatens (jokingly) that if I don't behave he won't read to me when we're older. The book has quite a different ending, making the sequel to The Notebook, The Wedding (Nicholaus Sparks) a whole new spin on Noah and Alli's love. I own it, if your curiosity intices you to read through the short novel.
