Today, like all Valentine's Days, scores of boyfriends across America will be forced to sit down and watch "The Notebook," the 2004 surprise hit starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. In honor of the movie, Screen Junkies have put out an Honest Movie Trailer for the film, trying to explain why such a mediocre movie has become a romantic classic.

"This Valentine's Day, revisit the film that reminds you that no matter how much you love each other, you're both going to grow old and die," the narrator says at the beginning.

Calling it the "Olive Garden of love stories," they implore audiences to really take a good, hard look at "The Notebook" and see if it deserves its status as a staple of romance movies.
