Pop singer Mandy Moore stars in her first feature film, an adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' young love tearjerker, A Walk to Remember. The film is presented in its original anamorphic widescreen 2.35:1 aspect ratio with Dolby Digital 5.1 audio. Both English and French soundtrack options are available, along with English, French, and Spanish subtitles. Special features include two feature-length commentaries. The first is an amusing commentary by Shane West, Mandy Moore, and director Adam Shankman. The trio discusses cut material and gives entertaining insight into filming the movie in Dawson's Creek territory. The second commentary is a more serious narration by novelist Sparks and screenwriter Karen Janszen who talk about the differences between the book and the movie and the film's overall themes. Moore's "Cry" music video is included with the film's theatrical trailer and cast and crew filmographies. After listening to the first commentary, it becomes obvious that outtakes and deleted scenes should have been added to the disc, as they would've been a great addition to this too-sparse package.
A love story so sweet, sincere and positive that it sneaks past the defenses built up in this age of irony.

I am an older woman who never had seen "A Walk to Remember". I caught it on a cable channel one Friday night when nothing else was on. I watched it again the next night and the following afternoon! Then I bought it and watched it two more times. I can't describe exactly what is so compelling about it, but I think it's because you see a change in this very jaded teenager who has not learned how to care about other people. When he discovers he loves Jamie, he goes to great lengths to prove to her (and to her father) that she truly is the one who has changed his life. He stops bowing to peer pressure at school and becomes a caring, sensitive, and strong young man. You know that the change is permanent in him, and that he will continue to be so until he dies. The fact that there is no sex is one of the points that makes the entire movie so believable. Although it seems that this would be a contradiction, it is the fact that the characters have to use body language, eye contact, and true acting to convince us that they are in love (instead of the ubiquitous sex scene) that makes their romance so realistic. It is a wonderful movie. I've watched it a couple of times since I bought it, and I'm planning to watch it again in the next couple of days!
This book was so amazing. It seriously spoke to me. We read this book in English class but we werent originally going to read it. Because we recently lost a friend at our school this book related to us. It showed us how other people dealed with death and gave us a positive light. The ending was okay but still the overall story was good. I love you oh NICKY BOY.
I read the book and that was so good! This was good, but kinda missed some parts from the book. Mady Moore was a little 2 sassy 4 a REALLY religous person. And they didnt do the christmas play they did some other play and it was in the begining. In the end they said she died, but Nicholas Sparks in the book wanted the people 2 decide if she dided or not (i thought she didnt die in the book)But if u read the book defanitly watch the movie!
"A Walk to Remember" is a really good book. I loved it, and most of my friends did too. Lots of people in my class said the ending was bad, but I thought it was pretty good. Jamie and Landon were so precious. My english teacher made my whole class do this review, and that's why I'm sitting here writing this.
My cousin wanted me to see this movie 'cuz she said it was really good! So I saw it and loved it! But I must warn you if you cry at the drop at of a hat then your going to need BOXS of tissus! :( I've noticed this, all the movies based on the books end sadly. What I mean is 'A Walk To Remember', 'Message In A Bottle', 'Nights In Rohdanth', and 'The Notebook' all end with a death that's all i'll say..
A MOVIE FOR ALL GENERATIONS, SPECIALLY APPEALING TO THE FEMALE PERSUASION.
this movie was very nice i loved when she sang Only Hope her voice so beautiful and so was the movie it really touches you this movie to me is way better than Dear John and The Notebook nice movie it really was!
I stumbled upon this movie two summers ago and everyday I would watch,sounding like my mother, as I repeat every line from the movie. It is my favorite movie. I have to say the book is a little bit better. Anyways, a must see! :)
Its a great touching movie and even i watch it another hundred times.I wont find it the least boring in it.Its also great movie which brought fate to know my Girlfriend!!Thank You!!
This is the best movie I have ever seen. It is so sweet. Mandy Moore's character, Jamie Sullivan does not have to change who she is or give up what she believes in order for Shane West's character, Landon Carter to see what a beautiful individual she is. That is what love is all about. The characters in this movie are teenagers and in most teenaged themed movies of this day and age the character has to morph into something they are necessarily not in order for the popular character to take notice. Not with this movie. That is what is so awesome and sweet about the movie. The character's really care for one another and want to give as much as they can to the other person.They were not trying to be different people or were they looking for love. Love finds them just as they are and encompassed them. If you want a romantic movie with a bittersweet ending. Watch this. You will not be dissapointed.
De gustibus non disputandum, so people may have their reasons not to like some aspects of this flick. A friend of mine, for example, whose opinions I highly respect, loved the concept and the acting, but did not like soundtrack, direction, and screenplay. I myself find that this movie is somehow too rushed in its first half (unlike in the book, here Landon falls for Jamie too fast, like one or two scenes between them are missing), and the climax of the movie (at the end, when Landon and Jamie¿s father talk about Jamie¿s getting her miracle) is not very well stressed and developed; but, this being said, I do not really understand how people can criticize the acting, which is very good, and the message, which is superior not only to the average teen movie, but even to movies aimed at a more mature audience. Clichéd and predictable? Time to wake up, people. What work of literature is not? The Greeks, already 2500 years ago, understood that all the works of fiction are variations of five or seven basic plots. The point is not IF a movie is predictable, but what its message is (content) and how it conveys it (form). In other words, if you¿re sucked into the story (for one reason or another), you could very well know in advance what is going to happen and enjoy it nonetheless, if content and form are there. This movie is one of the best out there as far as content, and it is somehow lacking as far as form, but it is such an uplifting and inspiring story revolving around (true) love, faith, hope, purity, forgiveness, redemption, reconciliation, and strength of character, that its flaws can be easily forgiven. Finally, to whosoever may suggest that this is a chick-flick that not appropriate to a male audience, I beg you to reconsider; males can learn a thing or two from this movie about what it means to be a loving man. Sure, watch BRAVEHEART if you want to learn what it takes to be a warrior, watch OTHER PEOPLE¿S MONEY when it comes to healthy capitalistic business mentality, but watch what Landon does for Jamie in the second half of this movie if you want to get a hint on how to bless your woman with the basic secret of love: give your heart to her without expecting anything back, for he pure joy of making her whole.
I thoought this was a really good movie and very interesting and Shane was really hot! I went out and bought the movie because I read the book and the book was so good I figured why shouldn't the movie be any different! The movie was really good and interesting but nothing really like the book! I was kind of shock about how all the important stuff in the book was taken out of the movie don't get me wrong the movie was great and I loved it and I've watched it a hundred times but it was nothing like the book!
I absolutely loved ''A Walk To Remember.'' I don't cry at movies, so I was amazed to find myself teary eyed during more than half of the movie. I've never really been a fan of Mandy Moore, but I was astounded at her performance. I found myself thinking, ''Wow, I never knew that Mandy Moore could act.'' I had always thought of her as a bubblegum pop princess, but now I'm not so sure. Part of the reason I found the film so moving was because of the Moore and West. They were amazing on camera together, and their on-screen chemistry was real. If you are a fan of romance-or even if you aren't-I recommend that you see this movie. It's a wonderfully moving story that isn't glamorized by Hollywood.
It was an very good movie(but very sad)
