Hello, ladies and germs. It me, back at it again with another pop culture hot take. This edition? The Notebook.
I recently rewatched what I THOUGHT was one of my fave romantic movies starring one of my fave couples, Allie and Noah. But, upon rewatch, I realized something...
...and that something is that Noah FRIGGIN' SUCKS and Allie hecked up when she chose him over Captain Lon Hammond, Jr.
Let's dive right in, shall we?
1.For starters, Noah was rude. As. Fuck. His and Allie's first interaction was him interrupting her while she was on a date with someone else.
2.Also, he's impulsive. A little spontaneity here and there can be cute, but threatening to kill yourself if someone doesn't go out on a date with you is BONKERS and INAPPROPRIATE.
3.Meanwhile, when Lon asked Allie out for the first time? She told him to get better first and then they could go out on a date. And you know what he did? HE WAITED PATIENTLY WHILE HE GOT BETTER AND THEN ASKED HER OUT APPROPRIATELY.
4.When Allie was TRICKED into going on a date with Noah – their friends set it up without her knowledge – HE ALMOST GOT HER KILLED!
5.Allie and Noah fought incessantly. You call it passion. I call it grounds for separation.
6.Allie and Lon, however? They wittily bantered! They conversed! They danced — to music!
7.Look at this visual representation of Allie and Noah not belonging together.
8.Lon and Allie knew the meaning of boundaries. When Allie needed to "clear her head," Lon 100% understood and gave her her space.
9.Noah? He's never heard the word boundary. Case and point: this "iconic" scene. Oh they're kissing in the rain! NO. He's kissing an engaged woman!
10.But the real reason Lon is better than Noah? Lon's simply more mature. When Allie told him about her tryst with Noah, he was shockingly mature about it. Upset, but rational.
11.Noah on the other hand was immature and spiteful. When Allie said she needed time to think things through, Noah said some messed up shit.
So yeah, Allie ends up with Noah, the bearded nub who spent the past few years drunk and creepily building a house for her.
Meanwhile, poor Lon got the short end of the stick, when his only crimes were falling in love with the wrong girl and having piercing blue eyes that stare into your soul.
