Do you remember whose shoulder you were crying on uncontrollably ten years ago when you saw "The Notebook"? The movie that made breakout stars of Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams (who officially started dating not long after the movie came out), and turned Nicholas Sparks into a book and cinematic industry, turns ten years old today, so it's time for a trip down memory lane.

The Notebook

Do you remember whose shoulder you were crying on uncontrollably ten years ago when you saw "The Notebook"? The movie that made breakout stars of Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams (who officially started dating not long after the movie came out), and turned Nicholas Sparks into a book and cinematic industry, turns ten years old today, so it's time for a trip down memory lane.

It's hard to believe that "The Notebook" actually opened at number four at the box office, but word of mouth helped it claw its way to $81 million. But DVD is where the movie truly took off, and within five years it sold 11 million copies. Steadily, "The Notebook" became the romantic drama to watch, a staple for any fan of the genre, and for couples looking for something to bring them closer together on the couch. And while you might not have time to rewatch the movie right at the moment, here's six clips to serve as refresher, a featurette on the casting of the film and the audition tape that got McAdams in the door. Watch below and keep Kleenex handy.
