It is really good. I saw it in the theaters and cried watching it and cried more the second time I've seen it. It's a major chick flick.

I'm stuck at work again and I'm watching the movie for...I think it makes this the 5th time I've seen it. And I haven't gotten bored of watching it yet. It's such a sweet movie. I highly recommend it to yall. I think it's one of those movies where everyone can see a little of themselves in it. At least I do.

Hey, I love my job. Who wouldn't love a job where they get to surf Arfcom for 8 hours and watch movies?

I didn't realize it was a book until I saw it in the theaters. I am definitely going to read it.

ETA: When was the book published? I'm looking for it now.

I liked the movie alot. Oddly, in my house I'm the "chick flick" watcher. My wife isn't a movie fan at all, so I rent just about anything - I like movies whether they feature Zombies or Cher (come to think of it, those are oddly similar). I like love stories, providing they're good.

Anywho, I thought it was a great flick. It showed a devoted relationship - something sorely missing from much of Hollywood and the world these days.

Yes...it is a great movie. I have watched it 3 times while at work. I think my coworkers are getting tired of it always playing at my computer.

Apparently you didn't watch the extra features on the DVD to see nudity. No nudity is time wasted, especially if it's the chick from The Notebook.

I watched the extras and didn't see any nudity...but I very well could have not been paying attention.

Didn't know that, but it doesn't really matter. Nudity does not a film make.

Anyway, I was discouraged because it seemed like the guy got the shaft.....I mean he did ALOT for that chick and when it came time to decide if she was going to love him back she was indecisive....Not cool. I guess it got to me because I personally know what its like to love a girl so much and do everything in your power to please her and then she just dusts it off like nothing. (don't worry I dropped her along time ago. )

I know she's the one that wrote the "notebook" but that was after the fact.

But if you realized, it wasn't all her fault. She didn't even know he wrote to her. And by the time she found out, although she was still madly in love with him, she was engaged.

Yeah I know her mother hid the letters, but I think she shouldn't have left in the first place. I mean she didn't have to go back to the city with her parents. In that day and age alot of people were married by then (I know my grandparents were).

Like I said before, I think my personal experience has alot to do with the feelings I had for this movie. And I think women generally eat this movie up because its their fantasy to have a man wrapped around their finger like that. I'm fine with being wrapped around a girl's finger as long as she's wrapped around mine. Love is a two way street.

ETA: When she did find out that he wrote to her and built her DREAM HOUSE by himself she was still indecisive.

I don't know about other women...but I know that with this movie, I saw quite a bit of my boyfriend and I in it. Although when I told him, he didn't see it. And it wasn't because I have a fantasy of having a man wrapped around my finger the way she did.

She wanted to make everyone happy and when she realized that she couldn't, that someone would get hurt, she was torn.

For some reason I find humor in that statement, I guess because I didn't see that at all!!!!

I saw a girl that wanted the best of both worlds so to speak.

ETA: Not to seem like I'm only finding fault in the girl, I also found fault in the guy. I mean after she left he started having a "relationship" with another woman that he didn't even care for....I mean really didn't care for, he treated her like a piece of meat.....Not cool either.

Maybe it's up to everyones interpretation. I saw that because I know what it's to be like that. Trying to make both of my parents happy at the same time since they were divorced, etc.

I can understand that. But every girl I know who has seen the movie couldn't quit drooling over the treatment the girl got. None of them have had your interpretation.....sadly.

I've been told I'm crazy and I screw over a lot of other women for the way I think. I don't like money being spent on me the way that a lot of guys will spend it. Yes, it's nice everyone once in a while. But I would much rather spend and night in talking and whatnot instead of having the money spent. Happiness to me is being with my family...not making a shit load of money. That's why I didn't "drool" over the treatment she got....

That's nice to hear, but as far as the treatment she got I really wasn't referring to anything money oriented. Although it did take money to build the house, I think she valued the act over the amount of money spent.

Overall, I just think it was a messed up movie. It was boring and drawn out, and blatantly obvious. It was obvious who the old people were from the beginning, and the fact that she was well educated indicated the she was the one who wrote the notebook.

I guess what I'm trying to say is the success of these movies rely on the estrogen factor. They're are too cookie cutter for me. I've seen better drama in the buffet line at Shoney's.

G­o rent Casino immediately.....that's one of my all-time favorites. I don't think it gets the credit it deserves. Maybe because the feeling most have around here for organized crime.

I tried watching that 2 years ago....and couldn't do it....I just couldn't watch it.

hmmmm........why? Too much violence.....language maybe? If you remember that the film is based on a true story it's easier to understand the need for such things (but it seems like I always have to coax a woman into Casino).

Well, the only time I tried watching it, I was filling out graduation announcements and decided to hang out with my mom while I did it. She was watching Casino. I walked into the room just and they were tightening that one thing (I don't remember the name of it) around a guy's head to make him talk. I turned around and walked right back out. I felt so sick...as though I was going to throw up when I say that.

I don't know what they are going for on Ebay, but you can get used books through Barnes and Noble (on the internet) at good prices. If you search his name it will give you the entire list of his books. My daughter told me The Wedding is one of the best he's written. He has a new book coming out this spring; I have preordered it for my daughter's birthday.

Well, you know they say that books are almost always better than the movies. Besides...for me, if I find a good enough book, I'll read that over and over again intead of watching the movie.

My mom has "The Deep End Of The Ocean." I read that before I saw the movie. And after I saw the movie, I read the book many more times. I have read it a total of 10 times now. Lol.

I thought we were having a pretty good conversation. I learned a new prospective from her and I hope she learned a new prospective from me. If you think I was "shitting" on her movie then you're mistaken.

I'm not sure what your problem is though. Are you the writer?

Casino is a great movie. I can't stand Sharon Stone but I have to admit she did a terrific job.
