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.

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

Mandy Moore only has herself to blame for choosing such a tooth-rottingly sentimental weepie as this.
July 20, 2002
It's sad that Moore's first major cinematic outing scrapes the bottom of the melodramatic barrel.

So boring that even its target audience talked all the way through it.
March 6, 2002
A fifty car pileup of cliches.

Just because A Walk to Remember is shrewd enough to activate girlish tear ducts doesn't mean it's good enough for our girls.
January 26, 2002
If you can't see everything in this film coming from a mile away, then you really need to get out more.
January 25, 2002
As far as I'm concerned, very little of what happens in this glossy teen-weepie romance can be described as surprising, and even less of it feels fresh or spontaneous.
January 25, 2002
A saccharine, but fresh and PG-rated alternative to, well, Not Just Another Teen Movie.
January 25, 2002
A story about intelligent high school students that deals with first love sweetly but also seriously. It is also beautifully acted.
January 25, 2002
Rarely has leukemia looked so shimmering and benign.
January 25, 2002
The bland leading the bland.
January 25, 2002
Could have been crisper and punchier, but it's likely to please audiences who like movies that demand four hankies.
January 25, 2002
Plays like the old disease-of-the-week small-screen melodramas.
January 25, 2002
Just when you think that everything has been neatly resolved, the movie drops a bomb that is jaw-droppingly cheap.
January 25, 2002
In their zeal to create a character who embodies a wholesome, positive adolescent ideal, the filmmakers have invented an 18-year-old girl with no self-doubt, no emotional weakness, no character flaws, and a crystal-clear complexion.
January 25, 2002
Mainly inspires gaping yawns and eye-rolling smirks.
