I am a HUGE Zac Efron fan, so I will admit, that's why I went to see the movie..but I do LOVE Nicholas Sparks and "The Notebook" is my all time favorite movie. I was instantly drawn into this movie within the first 5 minutes. It's so up to date, with the war in Iraq, reminded me of "Dear John." It was a beautiful love story, with a beautiful setting. Blythe Danner is terrific as "Nana". I loved the chemistry between Zac and Taylor. I mean, Look at him! HE IS GORGEOUS!!!!!!! WHO COULD RESIST HIM AND THOSE BEAUTIFUL BLUE EYES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
IT'S A MUST GO FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!

I loved the movie. Granted, it was different from the book...but I've come to expect that with movies. It's definitely a movie for girls, but that's no surprise as it is a Nicholas Sparks book. It's definitely a movie for adults as there are a few sex scenes that are inappropriate for kids and younger teens. I would definitely recommend this as a date movie or a girls night out.

I read the original book first and couldn't have imagined the characters or setting any better than what was portrayed in this movie. Zac Efron was wonderful! Very romantic! The type of guy every woman dreams of. He's strong, muscular, sexy, brave, and protective (in a good way). Definitely not for kids with the steamy sex scenes but for every one over 18....GO SEE IT! Guys probably won't like it because they won't be able to live up to the romance.

If your a fan of former movies of Nicholas Sparks books, like Dear John, and The Notebook, then you will of course be a fan of this movie. I have not read this book, so I really cant compare the movie to it, but I did go with my wife(her turn for a chick flick), and found this movie to be a very good movie, it kept my attention, the story was a good story, although there is a far stretch of the imagination to think he would ever really find her, that aside it was a good story, the acting was very good, and will say it was worth the price of admission. I'd give this movie 2 1/2 out of 4 stars myself, only because I feel movies like this can really be made for TV, as I have seen equally good movies on tv, and am sure there was no real expense of anything over the top to make this anything exceptional, or to stand it out amongst other movies playing at the show, so if your all cought up on your movies, and want to make the wife/girlfriend happy, or just like love stories, then go see it
