Antagony & Ecstasy
April 5, 2012
Adopts a breezy anti-cynicism as a pose, and then spends the rest of the time failing in the most spectacular way to competently execute it.

This realist fairy tale of impossible love has a fair amount of nuance and charm.

It's an overwrought teen weepy, Terms of Endearment for the TRL crowd.

Cinema Crazed
April 29, 2009
This is a great romantic tearjerker.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

August 7, 2008
A shameless, compassionate tearjerker about hope, inspiration and courage.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5

Empire Magazine
December 30, 2006
For anyone under 13, free from cynicism and with a need to believe that 17 year-old boys aren't just after one thing, maybe this film rocks.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Succeeds modestly as a teen movie. Expect anything else from it and you'll be disappointed.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Time Out
January 26, 2006
An adolescent romance we've seen a million times before.
Michael Dequina
Film Threat
January 12, 2004
A monstrosity of a movie that I am all too eager to forget.

Those raised on idealized romances (the Ken and Barbie kind) where love conquers all will no doubt love this sappy tale.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
Kimberley Jones
Austin Chronicle
March 10, 2003
[A] wretched teen dramedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
John R. McEwen
Film Quips Online
February 8, 2003
A kind of low-rent version of Love Story with overt religious overtones...
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
Harry Guerin
RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)
January 22, 2003
'No one was expecting Remains of the Day but this film could have been more than just a Dawson's Creek stop gap.'
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Nick's Flick Picks
January 10, 2003
Wholly un-groundbreaking, deeply conservative, increasingly sentimental, but reflecting some of the best of those qualities.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

October 2, 2002
This horrific teen romance-cum-weepie is best watched from between your fingers, or from under your seat, or perhaps standing outside the cinema looking in the opposite direction.

September 17, 2002
Director Shankman ditches character development in favour of delivering an exploitative date movie and dubiously conservative moral lesson.
Neil Smith
September 3, 2002
Mandy Moore only has herself to blame for choosing such a tooth-rottingly sentimental weepie as this.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall
August 29, 2002
Seeing as how it's based on a weepy Nicholas Sparks novel, it's not surprising that this teen romantic drama is an almost unbearably weepy film.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
Mark Palermo
Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
August 27, 2002
A sermonizing and lifeless paean to teenage dullards.
