I’m actually slightly impressed that Josie and the Pussycats has a 53%. I’ve never seen it, mind you, so I’m not making any statement on the quality of the movie itself, but Thor: The Dark World only has a 65%, so 53% is—while by no means good—actually a halfways respectable score. Much better than most of this list, at least. I haven’t seen it in a few years, but I think A Walk to Remember is a bit better than this is giving it credit for, if you’re okay with schmaltzy (and oh boy, is it schmaltzy) movies with a heaping dose of religious sentiment. Also, two interesting facts about it that I just learned from Wikipedia:
“The inspiration for A Walk to Remember was Nicholas Sparks’ sister, Danielle Sparks Lewis, who died of cancer in 2000.” (At the risk of spoilers for 12 year old movie, suffice to say the plot is based on her life, which is actually kind of surprising to me for some reason.)
“Despite bad critical reviews, the movie was praised by audiences, has 77% score from audiences on Rotten Tomatoes, and holds a score of 7.2 on the Internet Movie Database. Additionally, in social media, particularly in Facebook, A Walk to Remember has an estimated likes of 12,355,000 and is currently the 28th most liked movie on Facebook.”
I’m not sure I’d count it as a good movie, and I’m not sure if I could watch it now, but it’s not the worst movie ever. I love What a Girl Wants, though, and nothing you say is going to change that.
