A Walk to Remember
She didn't belong. She was misunderstood. And she would change him forever.
When the popular, restless Landon Carter is forced to participate in the school drama production he falls in love with Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the town's minister. Jamie has a "to-do" list for her life and also a very big secret she must keep from Landon.
Though wholesome, the Mandy Moore vehicle A Walk to Remember is also bland and oppressively syrupy.
It's the typical romance film with its clichés and predictability, but A Walk To Remember really builds up into something so emotionally powerful that admittedly did have me in tears. The performances are wonderful and you can really see how these characters blossom and evolve throughout the film. But really, adding on to what I said before, the film didn't have anything new to offer in terms of story.
"Our love is like the wind - I can't see it, but I can feel it."
Real feel-good movie, but be prepared to shed a few.
during my teens, i had six or seven sleepovers at my house. my friends and i watched this film at every single one, though my enjoyment lessened from about the fourth rewatch onwards. it was also the film my first girlfriend and i picked as ours—she had cancer, too, but her story is much happier.
i think it was, for some time, the film i had seen more than any other. i picked this particular date only because that sleepover is the most fondly-remembered.
maybe i'll rewatch it someday. but for now i think it's settled comfortably into the realm of memories of memories, vague, barely tangible, full of spiderwebbed associations i'd rather not disturb, more connotation than film.
I watched this and Fifty Shades of Grey in a span of about 72 hours. I nominate myself for Boyfriend of the Year.
After making Joey's Favorites, I brought Nicholas Sparks' A Walk to Remember with me to bed, and reread the entire thing before falling asleep.
I've known A Walk to Remember since first movie-released in '02, and as it inspired an everlasting love for Mandy Moore, it's remembered more fondly than deserved. Not until last year did I ever read the source-material, and back then I concluded both the novel and the movie was flawed, in different ways.
Upon revisiting the novel and the movie within the last day, my opinion hasn't changed. The novel is helped along by a nice amusing tone throughout the first half, and the Jamie Sullivan described there is nothing short of a saint. A saint…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
A touching story with decent acting and a decent plot. A bit too cheesy and focused on religion for my tastes, but still an enjoyable watch. Also, the other high school students are very one-dimensional and just there to be used whenever they are needed to move the plot along.
Simple & subtle Romantic movie. Cliched story line yet its lovable.
WHY DID SHE HAVE TO DIE WHY
First of all, I thought the whole movie was boring, Shane West was no help cause I thought he was bland, and he was acting like Chris O'Donnell's younger brother. Also where were some places in this film where I thought I was going to fall asleep. Plus A Walk to remember would have better off being one of those soappy Hallmark movies, instead of teen romance.
