Released 10 years ago, on June 25, 2004, "The Notebook" gave us romantic rainstorms, E from "Entourage" dying in The War and, most important, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams. Their smiles! That kiss! The heartbreak! And that was just off-screen. Onscreen, they played Noah and Allie, star-crossed lovers who became a yardstick for true love.
