PG | | Drama, Romance
The story of two North Carolina teens, Landon Carter and Jamie Sullivan, who are thrown together after Landon gets into trouble and is made to do community service.
Jessica Simpson was considered for the role of Jamie Sullivan.
Is he here yet?
After the play ends, Landon is being congratulated by Eddie. As Eddie is talking, Jamie leaves the theater and we see Eddie cross in the front of the shot. But he's supposedly talking to Landon at the time and in the very next shot, he's standing in front of Landon talking again.
The DVD audio commentary mentions that they filmed a scene where Landon sings "Only Hope" to Jamie while she is sick in bed. It was edited out because it was too depressing.
