Let's face it, even if you aren't a fan of romantic films or "chick flicks" you've seen The Notebook before. It's basically a cult classic film about a man, Noah, and a woman, Allie, whose love story lasts for decades and faces testing situations. The entire movie is a tear-jerker for most, but the waterworks seriously happen during the last shot of the film, where Allie and Noah pass away together in old age while wrapped in each others arms.

The film has been adored since it was first released, and in case you didn't know, it's available on Netflix Canada right now. Starting March 15, Netflix subscribers in the U.S. will also be able to view the film. The only problem is that they won't be seeing the ending they're used to.

TL;DR Netflix UK has officially changed the ending to The Notebook to a much less popular alternate ending that has left fans outraged. The movie will be coming to Netflix US on March 15 and will include the alternate ending, as well. More details and Tweets below.

Yes, it's a shock to all of us, but Netflix UK just changed the ending to The Notebook. Needless to say, fans are absolutely outraged right now.

The new ending apparently replaced the final shot of Allie and Noah together with a completely different shot of birds flying over a lake (presumably a metaphor for the infamous line in the film). 

Fans immediately expressed their anger and confusion over the change on Twitter:

Other Twitter users have instead explained that this ending has, in fact, been around for a while...

Some claim that the alternate ending changes the whole tone of the film.

Some are even concerned that Netflix will begin changing the endings to other popular films, as well.

According to sources, Netflix US will be releasing the same alternate ending of The Notebook on March 15.

How do you feel about the change to the infamous film? Let us know!
