    I LOVE Jesse McCartney....but this movie sucked a lot. The script was terrible. I mean how many times was the word "shit" used in this movie? Way too many to count. Not only that, but the script seemed like it was so clever when really it was cheesy and stupid. Everything that came out of Keith's mouth was ridiculously dumb. The whole time I was like Jesse McCartney what the HELL were you thinking! Anyone who read the script HAD to have known the movie was going to suck. The acting was also pretty lame. I mean the parents of Natalie were so obnoxious. They were so crazy and psychotic their characters were not believable at all. Natalie's boyfriend Raff was also so unrealistic. What a controlling jerk. He always has to be up in her business. Natalie should've dumped him a long time ago. Jesse's acting was probably sub par, I cut him some slack though since he really hasn't been in many movies. The plot came exactly from A Walk to Remember. Yeah they changed a few things around, but it was pretty much identical. A girl meets a boy who has (SPOILER) cancer, and her life is changed by him, and he dies afterwards. So unoriginal. They might as well just called it "Another Walk to Remember" the sequel to the first one. I thought the movie would be okay, but I was sorely mistaken. The plot was so rushed and inconsistent. Not my kind of movie at all. Everyone who wrote a fresh review of this movie has the worst possible taste in films. You can't just rate it good because it has Jesse McCartney in it. I'm a huge JMac fan, but even his gorgeous presence wasn't able to make this movie a winner.

    To all of you who think Jesse is just a singer and has nothing to do with movies I have to tell you this:He proves us wrong by acting even better than singing!

    I was channel surfing yet again amongst the premium channels and I stumbled across this surprisingly compelling Independent teen-drama/romance [with a bit of humor thrown in] on SHO2. Director Todd Kessler did a good job with the script by David Zabel, based on the short story by Ron Carlson. Just by reading the plot it seemed like a cliche but there was something special about this film. Great performances by Elizabeth Harnois ("Point Pleasant", "Ten Inch Hero", "A Single Man") and Jesses McCartney ("Beware the Gonzo", "Summerland")...I was especially surprised by his performance, their chemistry was actually quite amazing. Good supporting performances by Michael McGrady ("Southland","Day Break" ,"Half Past Dead"), Margo Harshman ("Even Stevens", "Sorority Row", "Fired Up!", "Run of the House"), Jennifer Grey ("Dirty Dancing", "Red Dawn", "Ferris Bueller's Day Off", "Bounce"), Ethan Phillips ("Star Trek: Voyager", "Governmentia", "The Island", "Lean on Me", "Benson"), Ignacio Serrichio ("States of Grace","Cold Play", "General Hospital", "Quarantine 2: Terminal"), and Zack Rockefeller. Good score by Tree Adams ("Californication", "In Plain Sight", "Wasted", "Things Fall Apart" - upcoming drama), the score goes very well with the film, especially towards the end - the way sound of the guitar really pulls at your heartstrings. Great cinematography by Darko Suvak ("Danika", "8MM 2", "True Blue"). Overall it was a very good film. What I got from it is that life is short, nothing is exactly as it seems, love is unpredictable - you can't choose who you fall in love with, and love can drive you to the brink of sanity. I'm really glad I gave this movie a chance, it really surprised me...especially the acting.
