Chicago Sun-Times
A love story so sweet, sincere and positive that it sneaks past the defenses built up in this age of irony.

Philadelphia Inquirer
It's wholesome as a glass of milk, and as refreshing.
75
A movie for teenagers, and, as these things go, very entertaining.
60
A sensitively told story of first love that could have been more affecting with a little more grit and without so mawkish a score.

Miami Herald
The film is well-scrubbed of anything resembling sexuality, more a nonthreatening fairy tale than the romantic drama it aims to be. Its appeal flies straight to the hearts of 13-year-old girls.

New York Post
About as edgy as a cup of Ovaltine, A Walk to Remember is an old-fashioned teen romance so sweet and free of irony that criticizing it feels like taking a baseball bat to a sack full of newborn kittens.

ReelViews
There's nothing remotely memorable about this walk.

Goo oozes without mercy in A Walk to Remember.
38
A movie where the miracles -- and treacly moments -- keep topping each other.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Since the movie has so little conviction, or personality of its own, it's a walk you can easily forget.

Entertainment Weekly
Just because A Walk to Remember is shrewd enough to activate girlish tear ducts doesn't mean it's good enough for our girls. They're willing to buy tickets; why not honor their wits as well as their wallets?

New York Daily News
The audience for this chaste teen romance won't be film lovers, as the movie is sappy and listlessly paced. But it's just the ticket for people who want their movies sanitized.
