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, All Movie Guide

Dissolves into cheesy melodrama by pstaylor75 February 11, 2005 - 11:10 PM PST

The premise of this movie isn't bad: Hot, James Dean-esque bad boy meets hot yet frumpy church girl, falls for her, and learns to be a better person. The first hour of the film, where bad boy Shane West falls for goody-two shoes Mandy Moore is actually quite entertaining, even if Ms. Moore is too relentlessly perky and self-assured to ever be convincing as the mousey minister's daughter. And then things go all cock-eyed in the last 40 minutes. If you are a lovesick 14-year-old girl, this is right up your alley. Anyone who is old enough to realize that your high school sweety isn't your life partner will find themselves rolling their eyes, even if they do get a little watery.

But what I really want to do is direct...
I once was a pop star, but now I'm an actor!
