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.
The inspiration for Jamie Sullivan's character and some of the events in the book/movie are from Nicholas Sparks' sister, Danielle Sparks Lewis (whom the book and movie are dedicated to).
Is he here yet?
The clasp on Jamie's necklace moves around during the play's music sequence.
There were several scenes (36) cut out of the film to earn a PG rating in place of PG-13 and several lines of dialogue was dubbed over.
