A modern classic that grows more beloved with each passing year, A Walk to Remember just can’t be watch enough. Based on the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name, Shane West and Mandy Moore star in the film as polar opposite high school students Landon Carter and Jamie Sullivan. When Landon turns to Jamie to help turn his life around, the aimless rebel falls for the minister’s daughter the more time they spend together. Realizing that their respective reputations mean nothing when it comes to their love, Jamie’s illness threatens to tear the pair apart.
If you’ve cried a million times to A Walk to Remember, what’s a million more? The romantic drama wasn’t a critical favorite and made a modest appearance at the box office. But its legacy has endured as a beloved story of love and loss. From time to time, A Walk to Remember streams on Netflix alongside fellow Sparks film adaptation tearjerker The Notebook. Right now, it’s among the best must-watch movies on the platform. Who doesn’t love a good, cathartic cry for a weekend movie night? Forget a walk to remember, this one’s a blubbering mess to remember.
