Scoop's notes: IMDb has a unique attitude
toward this film: "We don't care how high the ranking is, or how many
goddamned people love it, we are not allowing this film into the top 250."
For the record, it is rated 8.0 with 70,000 votes. Nearly 30,000 of those
voters (about 40%) have scored it 10/10! Only 2% have scored it 1/10. The
ratio of 10s to 1s is about 17 to 1. It has earned the same average score
from women as Gone With the Wind (8.7). Think about that statement. Women
like this film as much as Gone With the Wind, which basically means that
they like it better than calorie-free chocolates, their own children, and
guilt-free sex with Brad Pitt. To my knowledge, the only film women like
more than The Notebook is Amelie, and that by the barest of
margins (8.8 to 8.7).
In comparison, The Ox-Bow Incident is on the list, as #185, with 8.0 on
the basis of 6,000 votes, only 25% of which are 10/10. Compared to The
Notebook, three times as many voters (6%) have scored it 1/10. The ratio
of 10s to 1s is only about 4 to 1.
Er ... whatever, dudes.
I think the IMDb guys may have run the 2000 Presidential election.
I share their opinion that The Notebook is not a top 250 film, but as
Dick Tuck famously said, "The people have spoke. The bastards."
