Trivia

Chris Massoglia was originally chosen to play an 18 year old version of Sam to be more faithful to the final scene of the book, but for reasons unknown, he was replaced by Charlie Tahan in the final film. See more »

Goofs

Charlie mispronounces the location of the Red Sox's AAA team in Pawtucket, RI. He pronounces it "PAW-tuck-it." It is actually "paw-TUCK-it" and, since most locals pronounce it "puh-TUCK-it" - with the "aw" part barely vocalized - this is how most people associated with the Red Sox organization pronounce it as well.

Better than Imagined
30 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

I have to admit, that I never gave much thought of the phenomenon that was surrounding Zac Efron. The ladies seemed to love him and no one could have blamed him, if he just kept making the simple romantic movies, that would please his fan base.

He seems to have other things on his mind though. He is trying to act. And I have to admit, that I was surprised at how engaging and how truthful he seemed in this one. I do think he is better than the High School Musical tag he has stamped on him (which would mean, he is a bad actor, which frankly I don't think could be said of him).

His character does get a lot of attention from the female characters on display here, which seems natural. On the other hand, you do have the female lead in here, that does not seem to get any attention whatsoever, which makes you wonder if the male "population" in the movie is blind or into other things. Whatever it is, this is one of the things that do not feel right. The other being the mixture between the elements on display here. Let me just tell you, that this isn't neither your simple romantic movie, nor just pure drama. There is other aspects to it. I can see though that this might ruin the movie for quite a few people. Especially if they expected something more straight-forward.
