A Walk to Remember

Shane West, Mandy Moore, ...
A Walk to Remember: Kent Eanes

What begins as ”Pretty in Pink” without the wit (and in serious need of a Ducky) morphs into a Christian-tinged ”Footloose” (minus the dancing), before fizzling into a DOA ”Love Story.” In A Walk to Remember, class outcast Jamie (Mandy Moore) represents redemption in a raggedy sweater for school bad boy Landon (”Once & Again”’s Shane West). You so know what comes next: Bad boy does community service; good girl preaches and — omigosh — gets through to him! (And yes, of course Mandy sings!) Too bad the filmmakers forgot that no matter how miserable you were in high school, everyone laughed sometimes.
