The Last Song (Nicholas Sparks)

Anyone else a fan of his films or books?

His next movie, The Last Song, opens March 31st. Here is the trailer...I predict I will be crying about 40 minutes in, if not sooner.

I read this book, I think you will last more than 40 minutes, but will definately ball. Hope the movie is 1/2 as good as the book.

I loved watching the Notebook I still cry everytime I see it.
The only book I have ever read he wrote is Dear John. It was pretty okay.

I am a huge Nicholas Sparks fan and am so excited to see the Last Song (I know I will be bringing tissues if it is anything like the book).

I thought the book was written as a movie script, but made into a book, and then the movie was filmed. I am so confused. Trust me it doesn't take much! Anyhow, I am looking forward to it with tissues and all.

The book was first. I read it a few months ago. I was bawling at the end.
I love his books, but haven't like many of his books turned into movies. So I will probably wait for DVD

I am a big Nicholas Sparks fan and have read all of his books. He just has a way of drawing you in and I usually end up just sitting down and reading it cover to cover (I am a fast reader). I have not seen Dear John yet but in my opinion his books are so much better then the movies, I have not seen one that has done his books justice.

I loved the book, but it was sad. I am really looking forward to the film, and seeing Miley Cyrus' performance.

My daughter writes(for free) in our local paper in the Teens and 20s section. She did a book review on The Last Song and also got to do an interview with Sparks. She and my DW got to meet him at a talk he did a few mos back. DD is really looking forward to seeing the movie. She said that he mentioned that he intentionally wrote the book specific for Miley Cyrus to play in it.

That's awesome that she got to meet him. And you're correct, Sparks wrote a screenplay with Miley in mind and then wrote the novel, which came out earlier than the film. Hope that time-line makes sense!

I have been really pleased with several of his film adaptations. I've been watching film clips and it seems to have everything that I have come to expect from a Sparks story.

Thanks for looking that up for us!

Your daughter probably knows all about this if she is fan of Miley/the movie, but there is going to a live online interview with the cast tomorrow. Thought I'd pass along the info for any other fans out there. Pretty cool of them to answer fan questions directly. No matter what anyone says, you have to admit that Miley is loyal to her supporters.

I saw it today. I did enjoy the movie. I am not really a fan of Miley the actress but she did ok...great chemistry between her and the boy. I saw a few young girls at the movie that I really thought were too young for the content. Good movie and always Nicholas Sparks stuff requires tissue.

CAGirl had you read the book before seeing the movie?

What did you think of Greg Kinnear as the dad? I know Kelly Preston didn't have a huge role, but she is a great actress - how was she in the movie?

From the Sparks movies I have seen before, I would think anything verging on adult content would just go over any little kids head.
