11 The Notebook Movie
The famous and romantic Ryan Gosling and Rachel Mcadams movie!If you haven’t seen this film you haven’t even began to experience Ryan Gosling in his mouthwatering sexy, sweetness. This goes down as a classic in many women’s books and with good reason. Gosling plays a not so fortunate man in love with a girl who has everything in life. The freedom that Gosling has though is ultimately what draws the beautiful privileged girl to him, but as the movie progresses their differences show to be a challenge. And that doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of how drama filled and romantic this movie is. Rotten Tomatoes only gave this movie an average rating, but Ryan Gosling is above ratings in this film. This film is rated PG-13 and unfortunately isn’t on Amazon Prime or Netflix… you will have to buy this one.
