Tim Brayton
Antagony & Ecstasy

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.

Too-syrupy re-tread of Love Story.

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.

This is a great romantic tearjerker.

Sacramento News & Review

A shameless, compassionate tearjerker about hope, inspiration and courage.

Empire Magazine

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.

John Venable

Succeeds modestly as a teen movie. Expect anything else from it and you'll be disappointed.

Time Out

An adolescent romance we've seen a million times before.

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.

[A] wretched teen dramedy.

Film Quips Online

A kind of low-rent version of Love Story with overt religious overtones...

RTE Interactive (Dublin, Ireland)

'No one was expecting Remains of the Day but this film could have been more than just a Dawson's Creek stop gap.'

Nick's Flick Picks

Wholly un-groundbreaking, deeply conservative, increasingly sentimental, but reflecting some of the best of those qualities.

Peter Bradshaw

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.

October 2, 2002


Director Shankman ditches character development in favour of delivering an exploitative date movie and dubiously conservative moral lesson.

Neil Smith

Mandy Moore only has herself to blame for choosing such a tooth-rottingly sentimental weepie as this.

Full Review Source: BBC.com | Original Score: 2/5

Rich Cline
Shadows on the Wall

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.

Mark Palermo
Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

A sermonizing and lifeless paean to teenage dullards.
