I saw it today actually….

I LOVED IT. Cried the whole way… but loved the story and the whole meaning behind it. 

Damn those girls are good actresses. Bring lots of tissues… my eyes are still puffy

I really want to see this movie!  I’ll have to wait until I have a girl to go with.  Something tells me Mr. M won’t be up for this one.

I read the book and thought it was amazing.  I was told the endings are different between the two.  I am afraid to see the movie because I find that they are never as good as the book!

I haven’t seen it yet, but I can’t wait to! =) I absolutely LOVED the book (Jodi Picoult is AMAZING), and I cry every time I watch the trailer.

🙁  After reading a summary for it, I don’t think I can handle watching that right now.  It sounds like it is a really good book though.

My sister has leukemia….. I was 100% match, but she is not well enough…… I would NEVER watch it.  Read the beginning of the book and had to put it down.

 

As my hubby says, we have enough REAL LIFE issues …..

just my choice

I read the book years ago and then saw the movie.  I personally didn’t like the movie as much. Without giving too much away, they changed the ending in the movie completely, which I didn’t like.  Also, I thought the movie was too slow moving, there were SO many musical montages where nothing really happened.  I thought the strength of the book was the characters and their story–I just didn’t feel that in the movie.

I did think that Cameron Diaz did a really good job in the movie.  It was different to see her in a dramatic role and I think she acted her little butt off.

I was lucky enough to be invited to a preview of the movie. I had read the book before going since I had been doing quite a bit of traveling and I had time. The book was SO MUCH BETTER than the movie. The movie left out two HUGE plot lines that I think would have really added to the movie. Because some plot lines were left out of the moive, I think that those who haven’t read the book yet really should. Oh, and I just hated that they changed the ending! I knew that it would be different though. The same guy that directed "My Sister’s Keeper" directed "The Notebook" and he changed the ending of that one too. 🙁
