Time Out says

Big-lunged lovers Allie (McAdams) and Noah (Gosling) – pampered Southern débutante and rough-earth mill worker, respectively – are on a liberty spree, and the minutes of their magical hysteria tour are duly recorded in the titular ledger-cum-framing device, in the possession of a kindly codger, Duke (Garner). He reads from the notebook to the now-elderly Allie (Rowlands), who spends her dotage befogged by an Alzheimer’s-like illness. Apparently, Allie can no longer recognise her husband or children, but has retained enough short-term memory and powers of concentration to follow Duke’s romantic narrative from day to day. Amid the sticky-sweet swamp of Jeremy Leven’s script, Rowlands and Garner emerge spotless and beatific, lending a near-miraculous credibility to their scenes together.

The most emotional movie I have ever watched in my life. I do not watch romantic movies myself, but as I had no other option but to watch it, I did not regret it. Love is spilling from every scene, my heart beats for the love that Noah and Allie share. Truely remarkable.

The Notebook is the most powerful and beautiful love film in my opinion. It not only proves that teenagers can experience TRUE LOVE but it also shows that true love does last forever. It shows that no matter what happens, if you truly love someone, NOTHING can change that. The ending is also beautiful and extremely touching. I love this film.

I’m sorry anyone who rates two stars needs their head examined or their heart melting. I just watch this for the first time, and I do not usually look for other reviews but I felt in this case I needed to. It hasn't gained any good reviews officially but computer users looking on sites have commented and given it 5 stars with a 90% majority. I think this kind of stats is more like. The acting is brilliant direction is brilliant, yes the story in essence isn’t unique but I feel it’s the encompassing piece of a love story of the undying kind. The ending of the story is the hardest thing to write and there can be no such a better ending to what is in this film. How they do not die out of love, through the woman’s dementia, but in love together. Perfect.
