The best-seller by sentimental novelist Nicholas Sparks becomes this teen melodrama set in a coastal North Carolina port. Cocky, popular high school student Landon Carter (Shane West) is the big man on campus at Beaufort High School until a hazing incident leaves a fellow student paralyzed. Sentenced to community service and membership in his school's drama club, Landon is forced to seek help from Jamie Sullivan (pop singer Mandy Moore), the conservative, religious, plain-Jane daughter of the town's Baptist minister (Peter Coyote). When the two students begin to fall in love, Landon struggles with the drop in popularity that his new friendship brings, while Jamie is forced to deal with her strict father and a secret that she's keeping from her schoolmates. A Walk to Remember, which co-stars Daryl Hannah, is the second of Sparks's novels to make it to the big screen after Message in a Bottle (1999). ~ Karl Williams, Rovi
How disappointing to read the book and have to watch this take of the movie. I like Mandy Moore but in general, this script did the book no justice. Word to the wise: if you read the Nicholas Sparks book, DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE! This was very predictable and extremely lame at times.
This is a real tear jerker so have your tissues ready. It was a little weird at the beginning, but it's awesome that a selfish, self-centered kid can change and have compassion for a girl everyone is making fun of. It truly shows that a kid doesn't have to be with the "in crowd" to fit in.
this is a wonderful movie i fell in love with it the first time i saw it they should make more movies like this these days but they dont.Anyone who hsnt seen i highly recommend this movie to watch. If your looking for a movie to watch when your with you love you should get this one definently!!!
This was a great movie. So touching, so deep, great message. I ordered this movie after I read the book, and I actually found the movie to make me cry unlike the book, I don't know why. The movie is much different than the book, but it is amazing. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who's looking for a great love story, and a good cry too!
