Whenever people criticize Nicholas Sparks movies for being glorified Lifetime movies, someone brings up The Notebook. Mostly because it’s a romantic movie with solid acting and an interesting-enough plot. Also people get all emotional about it because old people dancing. But after seeing Safe Haven with Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel, I’m 100% positive that Nicholas Sparks totally lucked out with the casting in The Notebook.
