I'm going to see "The Notebook" tomorrow. Have any of you seen it? Do you think it will make me sad after just having lost Mom to Alzheimer's? I heard that it was really good.

Lulie....my son and his GF went to see it. He told me he thought I'd like it, so the next week, he and I went to see it! On a scale of 1-10....I give it a 10!!! It's a very moving love story!!
Take tissues!!! I didn't and left the theater with makeup all over the sleeves of my shirt!!! lol

If it's half as good as the book, you'll love it. I had a terrible time trying to read the last chapter because I couldn't stop crying long enough for my eyes to focus. I hope the movie conveys the rich depth of the love between the couple. Yes, take tissues.

I didn't read the book (didn't know there WAS a book..lol),but the movie was good enough that I saw it TWICE! Something I never do!!*S*

Well, I saw it tonight and I loved it, but my gosh!!!!!!!!!!! My friend and I had a hard time holding back a major crying jag. When we got up, we both told each other that we wanted to just sit there for an hour and wail. Being that Mom just passed away from Alzheimer's and Mom and Dad had such a beautiful life filled with so much love to the bitter end, it reminded me so much of them.
A friend of mine made a special call to me a few days ago,to tell me that she wanted DH and me to go see it together because she said that the couple's love reminded her of the love that DH and I share. She told me that she has always been so envious because even though she has been married twice, she never had that obvious, passionate, love with anyone. I feel sorry for her that she hasn't, but seeing the movie and hearing her tell me that again, has made me feel grateful for being fortunate enough to live it personally and to have seen it in my parents. I know not everyone is that fortunate. I shouldn't take it for granted, I know.
I really do want to read the book after I finish some of these projects around here. Hmmmmmmmmmm, I hope I can still see when that time comes. LOL
Bump, I took your advice and brought kleenex to the movie, but tried not to have to use them because I knew if I got started, I wouldn't be able to stop. I did pretty well. There was a great big man sitting next to me crying his eyes out. It was sweet.

I'm so glad you went to see it and liked it! When we left the theater, the only one NOT sobbing was a kid about 9yrs. old! Guess they couldn't find a sitter for him!! lol

He was probably totally oblivious to what the movie was all about. Probably squirming in his seat wanting to go home. lol
I want my DH to see it, although he probably wouldn't like it like I did. I guess it's more of a "chick flick".
