Nicholas Sparks is a sexist bigot. No, just kidding. That’s probably not true—I mean, I really don’t know. But, why is it that in Nicholas Sparks movies, there is always something tragic about the girl, but not the guy? And as a friend pointed out, why are the characters always white? My friend who pointed the latter out is also “white,” and I just thought it was really funny when she made that comment. So Mr. Sparks, why does the girl always have to be the weak one? He should also really get a new poster designer for his movies. I’ve never read his books, nor have I watched all the movies because just the previews bore me. Of the ones I’ve seen though, there’s only one movie I actually like—“The Notebook.”
I am however, looking forward to his new film “Safe Haven,” with Julianne Hough and Josh Duhamel, because the storyline involves abuse. I just hope the movie doesn’t romanticize abuse, and that it illustrates in some way the seriousness and ramifications of the issues surrounding abusive relationships.
BIG LOVE & HUGS
