Too-syrupy re-tread of Love Story.
January 20, 2010
This realist fairy tale of impossible love has a fair amount of nuance and charm.
January 20, 2010
It's an overwrought teen weepy, Terms of Endearment for the TRL crowd.
April 29, 2009
This is a great romantic tearjerker.
August 7, 2008
A shameless, compassionate tearjerker about hope, inspiration and courage.
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.

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.
September 3, 2002
Mandy Moore only has herself to blame for choosing such a tooth-rottingly sentimental weepie as this.
August 29, 2002
