    A love story so sweet, sincere and positive that it sneaks past the defenses built up in this age of irony.
  2. What saves the film is the chemistry between the two leads.
  3. 60
    West delivers the emotional goods when tragedy strikes in the final reel. If 17-year-old pop star Moore isn't a skilled actress, she's at least unassuming.

    Goo oozes without mercy in A Walk to Remember.
  5. 30
    A vehicle for teen singing sensation Mandy Moore. As vehicles go, it's an Edsel.
  6. 30
    Basically a prim, desexualized "Carrie," told from the prom date's perspective and featuring Peter Coyote in the Piper Laurie role.
  7. 10
    A monstrosity of a movie that I am all too eager to forget.

    A Walk to Remember was a very touching romantic film that really effected my inner emotions very deeply. It's corny, commonplaced, touchyA Walk to Remember was a very touching romantic film that really effected my inner emotions very deeply. It's corny, commonplaced, touchy moments were endurable because it alters your mood from being exhilarated to set your eyes to the screen to being heart-broken and depressed in a good way. This is by far my favorite Nicolas Sparks adaptation; it will always be.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Jamie is very religious and unpopular in school, while Landon is 'bad'
    and popular. In the beginning Landon and his friends are teasing Jamie.
    But when Landon has to do a school play, he asks for Jamie's help. It
    was really interesting to see how two different personalities
    eventually are growing closer and closer to each other. From then, they
    fell in love with each other. Both have a wonderful time together. But
    then Jamie has sad news, she tells Landon that she has leukemia. So
    they are going to do everything that she always wanted to do in her
    life, like get married in the church where her parents got married. I
    found it a really beautiful and touching end. Actually it was a bit
    predictable, but the film is so compelling, that you really want to see
    the end.

    Boring, and totally unoriginal. A girl who gets teased a lot, and then some popular guy spends time to fulfill her top 3 to-do list? What? If Boring, and totally unoriginal. A girl who gets teased a lot, and then some popular guy spends time to fulfill her top 3 to-do list? What? If you're going to go fantasy/fairytale, make it a cartoon. It isn't horrible, but it falls short and it's dull. Expand

After reading the book, I automatically fell in love with the characters and could not wait to see them come to life in the movie. The script writer left out almost everything from the book which I for one, was very shocked about. There were so many beautiful scenes in this book and the way Nicholas Sparks writes is like a work of art. In the book, Jamie is portrayed has the girl who always helps the needy. She is always volunteering at the orphanage. I thought it was very strange how they left such a significant detail out of the movie. My all time favorite part of the book was when Landon went to collect the money jars for the orphans for Jamie. I can honestly go on and on about how poorly this movie was directed. But than again, the books are always better than the movies. Expand
