The Notebook | Roy & Jenny

Posted by on Jan 24, 2013 in same day edit | No Comments

The year was 2004, I was one of the few most hard working employees in a very respectable company in Makati. From my cubicle, I can hear two of my officemates engaging in an animated discussion about this Ryan Gosling & Rachel McAdams flick and how this film made them cry. Like manna from heaven, it was the perfect chick flick that gives me the best shot of getting this office hottie to go out with me. The film was Nick Cassavetes’ The Notebook and my date that night turned out to be the very first date my wife and I had. Memories of this date in slow motion (some in black and white even) accompanied by a romantic background music flashed back inside my head as Jenny told the story of how Roy told her he loved the film and how it turned her off that he did. What she didn’t know is that my man Roy, and most of the dudes who say they like it, only said it just to get her and she fell for it hook, line and sinker. Either that or the really praise-worthy script, critically-acclaimed performances and Ryan Gosling for God’s sake. =)
