Quotes

Morgan: The thing about a first kiss is, you only have one, and believe me, she's gonna remember it no matter what. So, you've gotta pick the perfect moment, and that moment comes right after you've done something incredible. And you'll know the moment because you'll see it in her eyes, because she will look at you like she's discovering you for the first time, like she's never seen you before, and that's when you move in for the kiss. And that kiss will tell you everything you need to know about they ...

The Most Amazing and Touching Experience of a Lifetime
6 June 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie. I couldn't believe it. I thought it would just be like another "Remember the Daze aka The Beautiful ordinary" but this goes the extra mile. You felt for the characters and cared about what was going on. Its a true life story that is captured so perfectly its incredible. The young actors in this film really make it believable. It was a prize to sit and watch this. Not one moment was I bored or thought it was overdone. This is better than most of the movies out there today. You can take away many things from this masterpiece. It gives you hope, sadness, joy, and passion. Its a must see for any teen. You'll Love It!
