When Jamie gives Landon her mother's book, she says, "Don't worry, it's not a Bible." In the novel by Nicholas Sparks, Jamie does give him her mother's Bible which has her favorite passages underlined. See more »
When Jamie is singing in the play, the same shot can be seen from two different cameras, but in one shot her eyes are open and the other her eyes are closed. See more »

This was one of the best films I've seen lately. Mandy Moore shone in her role as Jamie Sullivan, although never to the point where she became unbelievable. Her singing was fabulous, but it was clear that this was not a film about her singing - too many pop artists starring in films wind up in films about their pop careers, whether real or inferred.
The storyline was VERY good. I can't say too much without spoiling it for everyone else, but take my word for it. You absolutely must watch this film at some point - make sure you grab plenty of tissues though, because if you don't get emotional towards the end, you must have a heart of stone.
All in all, fantastic.
