A lot of the shots - especially the night time ones - used Miley Cyrus's double. Cyrus was still technically a minor at the time of filming so the number of hours she was able to work was strictly limited. See more »
Towards the end when Will goes to his dad's brake shop to tell Scott its time to tell Ronnie's dad the truth, when the camera switches back to Will you can see the emblem of the well known "SpeeDee Oil Change" in the background (close to the ceiling) This was supposed to be "Blakelee Brakes," which was said to be a franchise.

[in letter to Ronnie]
Love is fragile. And we're not always its best caretakers. We just muddle through and do the best we can. And hope this fragile thing survives against all odds.

It's been 5 years since I've reviewed a movie on IMDb, but oh... I am compelled! Where do we start? One of the producers has the last name of Cyrus, so I guess that explains a lot. But let's forget Miley's "acting" and address the story itself. I've always thought Sparks overuses death to illicit emotion in his readers/viewers (even though The Notebook and Message in a Bottle are two of my favorite films). But that aside, was there a single un-contrived moment in this film? They (whoever "they" is) tried to squeeze every type of plot device imaginable into this movie. So many cliché conflicts going on, I laughed more times than I can count. Hope I didn't disturb the other two people (both teen-aged girls) in the theater. However, hats off to Kinnear for an honest performance.
