A Walk to Remember (2002)

Teen troublemaker meets good girl and gets more than he bargained for.

Directed by:

Adam Shankman

Rating: 8/10

Running Time: 98 minutes

US Certificate: PG UK Certificate: PG

On DVD

Country: United States

Landon Carter (Shane West) is a big name in the school in-crowd – an aimless, moody, troublemaker who breezes through school making the most of his popularity. One night, he dares a boy to jump into a reservoir in order to join his gang. When the prank goes wrong with the boy ending up in hospital, Landon is given community service to do – he is assigned to tutor disadvantaged students on the weekends and to participate in the Drama Club's spring play. This throws him together with Jamie Sullivan (Mandy Moore), a girl who he has known all his life but ignored.

Serious, conservative, and daughter of the town's church minister, Jamie (Moore) is as far from cool as she can possibly be, and doesn't care – she knows where she is going and what she wants to do with her life. Struggling with the lines of the school play, Landon is forced to ask Jamie for help. In spending time together, Landon learns to worry less about what others think of him and more about doing what he feels is right. The two become friends and a relationship develops. However, Jamie has a very big secret she must keep from Landon – one that will get in the way of their romance and destroy their future together.

The “cool kid meets misfit and falls in love” story has been done many times, but this is a fine example of the genre. Both West and Moore produce likeable characters with depth. They also make the most of the script, which has a twist or two which makes it stand out from the crowd. Starting out as a lightweight teen movie, it develops into a fine right-of-passage fable which is surprisingly worthwhile.

Based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks.

It's Got: Strong performances from West and Moore.

It Needs: A bit more on Landon’s background with his father.

DVD Extras Could use a director’s commentary. Extras: Cast and crew interviews, A day on the set of A Walk to Remember, Trailer, TV spots. DVD Extras Rating: 7/10

Alternatives:

10 Things I Hate About You, She's All That

Summary

It’s been done before, of course, but this movie does it much better than most. Those who love teen romances will enjoy this film, but don’t overlook it if the genre doesn’t usually appeal. This film will please a much wider audience than one might expect – including adults – and even the men may need a tissue for the ending.

    Best movie, inspired me to be like Jamie. Find my landon… They’ve proven True love does exist…even if its based on a fictional story. I want my landon.

    Very emotional, just been crying watching the parts it made me cry the most. (Ending, and where Landon asks Jamie to marry her) Very tearful moments.

    Loved the movie, will be getting the Book to read. I’m in love with it!
    Best teenager heartbreak romance movie ever!!!! 😀 <3

    OK, I read the book, by Nicholas Sparks, and that was an amazingly well-written book. It was fantastic. However, I think the movie is horrible compared to the book. I think it abused the book, because it was so bad. The characters have changed unnecessarily, and so has the story line. I was extremely disappointed at how Landon was portrayed, as opposed to the book, and also Jamie. The play also was completely different as well. I think the movie sucked the whole point that Nicholas Sparks was trying to convey through the book. If I had to rate it, I would give it a 0 out of 10.

    This is probably my favourite movie ever. I cried nearly all the way throught it . Shane West is gorj and both Shane and Mandy gave brilliant performances.

    I agree that the movie isn’t anything like the book. But I disagree that it should be rated a 0 of 10. It’s an overall great movie, and many people wouldn’t even have wanted to read the book without watching it first.
    I think they did change some things, but it’s very rare that you find a movie going exactly along with a book.

    I found my Landon last year. He was always the cold one, but I was never that sure. I saw something in him. He is actually the sweetest guy I know and soon we liked each other. He was known to be bad boy and I was known as the good girl. The school didn’t like us together but we didn’t care. Soon, the school kept saying things and everything and we couldn’t take it anymore so we decided to part ways. He left and I don’t know where he is now.

    “it lasted forever, and ended so soon”

    Everytime I watch the movie, I cry because Landon reminds me of him 🙁

    This movie really sucks in comparison with the book !!!!
    I didn’t watch it all because it literrally abused the book, and am not sure Nicholas Sparks would accept seeing his MASTER-PIECE tunring to a piece of chit like that !!!

    If i was to rate it, I would give it -100 / 0 !!!

    I haven’t read the book yet. It’s on its way in the mail right now. But the movie… It tore me up. I want it remade in current time. There are drugs available now that would save Jamie. I have leukemia. The drug I take keeps it from getting worse. Sure, it was just a movie, but I would like to see a remake where Jamie would live and go on to have a life with Landon, have afamily, stuff like that. Its just too sad as it is.

    This movie is, by far, my favorite movie. The second best movie is ‘A Sorcerer’s Apprentice’, but this one wins by 1000000000000 MILES!
    This movie has EVERYTHING, romance, tears, laughs, LOVE!
    I LOVE Shane West in the movie <3

    I have read the book and I have seen the movie millions of times. I saw the movie before I read the book and I thought it was amazing, and I cried a ton! Then I read the book and it wasn’t to different from the movie, both made me cry. It’s one of my all time favorite teen-romance movie! 🙂

    Bad movie,
    Lame editing (the fadeouts and cuts at the marriage scene = horrible),
    Too much loud music (and over the top and just TOO MUCH),
    Tons of cliches,
    Too fast (Suddenly the words ‘I love you’, a race to marriage, ‘I have leukemia’ etc),
    Characters don’t develop naturally,
    High School – Love story without cleverness/inventive writing,

    ConclusionL Fake sadness for people that are emotionally very unstable will love to cry all the way through. I don’t see why. Watch Up in the Air and The Notebook and you’ll regret watching this movie.

    This is my all time favorite romantic movie. Whoever doesnt like this movie, I feel really bad for you. It just goes to show that you dont have a heart. This movie is very touching and it will have you in tears ;(!! To anyone who hasnt seen this movie, I totally recommand it, especially if your a sucker for romance. I also tell you to have a box of tissue around because you will need it!!!!
