Landon Carter is the popular guy at school. He drinks, swears and nearly kills a fellow student when he and his friends play a prank on him. As punishment, his principal tells Landon that he must help the janitorial staff after school, tutor underprivileged kids at another school and participate in the school's yearly play. Landon immediately finds the roles have been switched during all of these activities. He is now the outcast out of all the good-natured kids. He meets Jamie Sullivan, the green sweater wearing, Bible hugging minister's daughter. He and his friends had always made fun of her because of how good she was. But, he gets to know her better as she helps him with the school play. Unexpectedly, Landon finds himself falling in love.
Continuity mistake: When Landon goes to visit Clay in the rehab center, as he's walking in it's a bright sunny day. But once he enters the room, the weather through the window is dark and dreary. (00:35:05)
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."
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.
