A Walk to Remember is definitely a tear jerker. It's sometimes heartfelt, but there is one thing that always bothered me - it's very unrealistic! I personally did not like it much at all and could only watch it twice in the 10 years I've owned it. Landon (Shane West) has known Jamie (Mandy Moore) throughout his school years and has always disguised her as being a "loser". His friends are shallow and together they plan to play a mean prank on a nice guy who just wants to fit in with them. After causing a near death accident, the friends split and leave him to fend on his own. Landon's punishment is sweeping floors, tutoring on weekends and participating in the school play which Jamie also happens to be in. When Jamie comes out on stage with some makeup and her hair done, Landon suddenly has eyes for her. From then on, he practically follows her around and gets up the nerve to ask her out after saving her from another mean prank his friends make up. The two then embark on an adventurous date and Landon tells Jamie he loves her. Soon he finds out a terrible secret that Jamie has been withholding from him. The story is okay, I can see why tweens and teens would go nuts for this. It's just too tasteless and almost laughable. No bad boy would turn soft that fast - or at all, for someone he has known forever and never was interested in. Language is mild except for a few sh*ts and other common name calling. Sexual content is mild with a few kissing scenes and some flirting, a guy also imitates having intercourse in a comic way while rehearsing lines with Landon for the play. Violence is average - a guy jumps off a ledge and nearly drowns, group bullying and violence with pushing, hitting and arguing. A car crash with injuries. There is mild teen drinking. Okay for 12+.
