Logan (Zac Efron) gives Beth a quote from Dr. Seuss. Zac Efron voiced Ted in Dr. Seuss' The Lorax. See more »
Beth's piano, which was covered-up and apparently not used for a long time, was absolutely perfectly in tune when Logan plays it. Pianos do not hold their tune like this. See more »
[Beth watches Logan working outside while she does the dishes inside. She cleans a pan without realizing she does it. Ellie notices that she looks at Logan]

This was the first Nicholas Sparks book I read and I loved it, so I had high hopes for the movie. Like usual the movies are never as good as the books are. For some reason they changed a lot of basic info. Like location. Why change the state? Any way the love making scenes were very good so if you are just going for the romance you won't be disappointed. I think that Zack played Logan well. He had a depth that I didn't expect as an actor even though he didn't have much to work with. It wasn't my favorite movie but it wasn't that bad either. Maybe if you didn't read the book first you might like it better. And for those who haven't read it but liked the movie, you should read it. You will love it.
