This movie is in my top five because I find the story line very real and it is a classic love story. I also love the fact that it reflects the book so well, which a good choice of actors from the main characters.
"'The Notebook' excels most when contemplating love's obligations and responsabilies, that unique balance of fire and calm."
"One of contemporary cinema's most compelling and flat-out love stories"2. P.S I love you (Richard LaGravenese, 2007)
UK box office: £10,313,211
US box office: $53,695,808
P.S I love you is on my list because I really like following the main character as she reads the 10 letters that her dead husband wrote before passing away in order to help her overcome his death. I find the film rather emotional.
3. Love in the time of Cholera (Mike Newell, 2007)
UK box office: £------
US box office: $4,607,608
I found this movie interesting because it is not the same to the usual style that I would choose to watch but it is a very well made movie. I enjoyed it because it was different, a romantic film set towards the end of the 19th century.
4. The Hangover (Todd Phillips, 2009)
UK box office: £21,620,272

I liked it because it was a very funny film which has an entertaining and gripping story line. I was hooked into watching how the story unfolds as the actions from the night before are re-lived.
5. Mean Girls (Mark Waters, 2004)
UK box office: £5,411,323

It is a movie that I can relate to but everything is presented in a funny and lighthearted manner.
