Continuity mistake: When Mandy Moore is singing in the play, the clasp on her necklace keeps moving - in one shot, it's visible, in the next it's not, then it's near her collarbone... all over the place!

Continuity mistake: In the scene after Landon gets in the car crash and he is at home, when he walks into the kitchen he is wearing a long sleeve shirt. In one shot his sleeves are all the way down and in the next shot when he sits down at the table his sleeves are pushed up. Between the two shots he would not have had enough time to push them up.

Other mistake: In the scene right after the beginning credits roll, and Shane West is going to sit down at the kitchen table, there isn't any food, but later, while he is talking to his mother, he is eating.

Continuity mistake: When Jamie is singing in the school play, her solid close-up and her bleed through close-up do not correspond. The solid image blinks but the bleed through does not and vice versa a few seconds later. Obviously, this was two different takes that were super-imposed together that, unfortunately, did not fully correspond with each other.

Other mistake: In the rehearsal scene, you can clearly see as the camera moves back that Jamie is cracking up as Miss Garber is demonstrating how to walk.

Audio problem: When Jamie is singing "Only Hope," the pianist's fingers do not match the actual music.

Continuity mistake: When Jamie goes to see Landon after she has told him she is sick, he holds her head in his hands and then moves them down to giver her a hug. In the next shot his hands are back up on her head and move down once again.

Continuity mistake: During the play, Mandy begins to sing the song "Only Hope", and sits down at the table beside Shane West. You can clearly see a small layer of her hair hanging in front of her right eye. A moment later, when the camera angle switches from the back of her head, to her face again, the piece of her hair is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Jamie sings "Only Hope", she's smiling and her head is tilted to the left as she sings about "your galaxies dancing and laughing, and laughing again." The shot then dissolves to Jamie with her head straight and looking to her right. (00:40:05)

Continuity mistake: In the first cafeteria scene, Jamie dismisses Landon's advances by closing her book and knocking it loudly on the table. In the next shot (camera faces Landon) she knocks her book a second time. (00:45:00)

Continuity mistake: When Landon and Jamie walk past each other in the school hallway, Jamie walks past a girl in yellow standing next to some lockers. In the next shot, Jamie walks past the girl again. (00:34:45)

Audio problem: Landon's lips don't move when he repeatedly says "come on" to Jamie when he takes her to the state line. (00:57:55)

Jamie: Are you trying to seduce me?
Landon: Why? Are you seducible?

More quotes from A Walk To Remember

Trivia: The "Walk to Remember" is not a walk with both Landon and Jamie. It is Jamie's walk down the aisle. Some people think it is the walk down the pier when he says he loves her and some think it's their first walk up to the school past all of Landon's friends a scene or two later. This is not only stated explicitly in the book but it is also meant to be clear at the end when Landon goes to see Jamie's father and his "thoughts" are something like "...but the vision of Jamie walking towards me will be with me forever." On the DVD commentaries they discussed how they added that because people didn't know why it was called A Walk to Remember or just which walk was supposed to be so memorable. In the book Jamie is much more ill and can barely make it down the aisle, but "it was in every way, a walk to remember."

More trivia for A Walk To Remember

Question: Who was Jamie's maid of honor at the wedding? I was reading some discussion on imdb and the comments seem to indicate that it was Belinda since neither she nor Dean's girlfriend were seen sitting in the pews with Dean, Eric et al. One shot does briefly show a blonde girl holding the bouquet of flowers.

Answer: Belinda was Jamie's Maid of Honor.
