The Notebook

The Notebook
There’s no question about it, Noah and Allie are in love. Set in two different time periods, the beginning of the pair’s relationship is shown via a notebook that an older Noah reads to Allie who is suffering the effects of dementia. Can true love ever be forgotten? Here are a few movie mistakes to look for while watching “The Notebook”.

∙ Near the beginning of the movie, the younger Allie and Noah are at a carnival. After their first encounter, Allie and another man get on the Ferris wheel. The man is holding cotton candy in his right hand. This is noticeable throughout the scene. But, after Noah has climbed aboard and gets Allie to go out with him, the cotton candy that the man was holding is now gone.

∙ After Noah and Allie have watched the movie in the theater, they decide to go for a walk. When they get to the traffic light, Noah tells her how he used to lie in the road and demonstrates for her. At first, Noah is closer to the center of the lane that’s to his left. (This is especially noticeable in the overhead view.) But during the close-up, Noah is now closer to the double lines that run down the middle of the road. This happens again when Allie joins him. At first they are closer to the center of the lane to their left but the next view shows them near the double lines.

∙ The older Noah and Allie are having lunch. Noah is wearing a pair of glasses when he sits at the table. In the next view, when he looks down to read, Noah is wearing his other pair of glasses but we never see him switch!

∙ Allie sees Noah’s picture in the paper and visits him at Windsor Plantation. Later, the two are in a
small rowboat. Allie’s hair is up at first. But, in the next scene, when it begins to rain, Allie’s hair is down.

∙ Noah surprises Allie with a candlelight dinner at the nursing facility. The wrap/shawl that Allie is wearing is around her up until she sits at the table. But, in the next side view, after Allie sits down, the wrap/shawl is gone.

“The Notebook” (2004) stars James Garner, Gena Rowlands, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. It runs 123 minutes and is rated PG-13 for some sexuality.
