The whole time I’m watching “A Walk to Remember” (2002) I’m waiting for somebody to walk somewhere and it’s just not happening. Meanwhile, the Nicholas Sparks emotional manipulation machine is running full tilt as a pair of star-crossed teens find true love at the high school musical. Mandy Moore was transitioning from pop to film at the time and her limited range is perfect for playing a preacher’s nerdy daughter. Shane West is the disposable James Dean wannabe forced to clean up his act. They’re perfect for each other. It’s good, simple entertainment, if you like this kind of movie.
