This is what happens when you take The Notebook too literally.

Couldn't figure out what to watch last night, so decided since it was the only thing on TV, I would watch The Notebook. It wasn't completely my idea. My friend said if I watched it he would too. So we talked on MSN during the course of the movie. Here are some snippets of our conversation:
(Editors note: we are taking this movie way too 'literally' in the sense that everything said in this movie, we take the piss out of.)
*whilst watching the first scene in that house where Ally and Noah were going know*
9:04:11 p.m. Stevee wow, pro piano player
9:04:41 p.m. Kieran aee!

9:06:06 p.m. Stevee oooh she takes her earrings out just in case things get rough

9:06:32 p.m. Kieran lol good precaution i guess
We are mature, but looking at things immaturely is way more fun.

(was that off topic? It's hard to talk about The Notebook for two whole hours)

10:30:36 p.m. Kieran ;(

10:36:52 p.m. Kieran good
10:37:06 p.m. Stevee even though the rest of the movie is pretty bad, I still find the end sad
10:37:11 p.m. Stevee hey that rhymed

10:37:22 p.m. Kieran lol it did
10:37:31 p.m. Kieran and yes it is sad
10:37:40 p.m. Kieran and we both survived it yay

There you have it...a conversation about The Notebook. I have seen it before, and I lauded it with 8/10. However, on a second watch, it is way too romantic even for my standards. But the end gets me every time. I don't absolutely hate it just isn't one of my favourites. And I really don't like Nicholas Sparks, so I guess that doesn't help.
