So, love it or hate it, there's no denying that The Notebook has earned its reputation as one of the most romantic movies of all time.
And even though it has become one of the ultimate Valentine's Day clichés, we're not sure we'll ever get bored of the young couple's rollercoaster romance.
But, while Noah and Allie might seem like the ultimate couple goals, relationship experts aren't buying it.
According to Stylist, a group of romantic experts recently sat down with Time Out to discuss some of the best and worst romantic films of all time.
The list was surprising to say the least, but perhaps The Notebook was the most puzzling choice of all.
We know what you're thinking. How could a romantic expert of all people decide that this was a bad film?
Well, according to psychotherapist, Gupreet Singh, Nicolas Sparks' story is actually too perfect.
He explained: “Noah restores a house for Allie. He writes letter after letter waiting for her. They die holding hands. Talk about idealised love! If you believe in it you start to think: I shouldn’t settle for less.”
“But most average couples are nothing like that. We are humans, we are fallible. Love is imperfect because we are.”
Now, we're not saying he hasn't got a point, but isn't it nice to fantasise every once in a while?
The Notebook was never meant to be a factual retelling of true events, but instead a fictional account of love at its best and at its worst – and in that sense, we think it did a pretty good job.
Sure, most of us probably won't find anyone willing to send us handwritten letters every day for a year, but it's nice to see that this kind of true love really does exist – even if it is just up on the big screen.
