No one ever talked to Jade (Gabriella Wilde) while she was in high school because she was too beautiful and too rich. David (Alex Pettyfer), who has never talked to her, likes her as they speak for the first time as he parks their family car at the country club. Soon she joyously loses her virginity by the fireside. Her home has magical floor boards that squeak when you walk on them, but not when you make love on them. Be gentle it's my first time and the floor boards squeak.

Her mom (Joely Richardson) is supportive of their relationship. Dad (Bruce Greenwood) is not. The evil Dad schemes for Jade to be a doctor and go to Brown University. David, who is intelligent, plans on taking over his dad's (Robert Patrick) garage and hopefully he can stop punching a time clock.

This is a not a guy's film. Grown ups running around with sparklers? Falling in love forever on a first meeting. Having your first sex somewhere besides an automobile. Daughter not knowing what a jerk her dad is after living with him for 18 years. A mechanic with smooth hands. Seriously Shana?

This is a one star film for guys, 5 stars for women. Please ladies, don't make your man sit through this one forcing him not to chuckle while you have a Puffs moment.

Parental Guide: 1 F-bomb near end. Implied love making. Brief sheer fabric nudity. Were her straps still on her shoulder while laying down after she took the garment off?

This movie was so much better than the original. Brooke shields was a teenager in the original one. It was cold and it made the David character unattractive, not the actor, but his character's personality was lacking, boring, weak and and that intelligent. They also made the character Jade cold and way too naïve and immature. The mom did love the David character in the original and the brother was a jerk and they came across like rich hippies. Also the father was way more thick headed.
This one was so much better, the love they had for one another made way more sense, David was someone you could picture falling really hard for if you were Jade.I actually didn't like Alex Pettyfer before this,I didn't want to see it because of it but now I think he is great and totally understand his appeal. And the Jade character has a lot more depth. I definitely recommend this move especially if you saw the original, it is interesting to compare the two and this one blows it away. Really great star crossed lover's story.

Found it to be poorly written. Not really what I expected, and the plot line moves at an awkwardly fast rate of time.

Terrible trite script. Characters lacked any depth or subtlety. Worst movie I have seen in a long time. Don't waste your time or money

I love romance movies but this one is simply annoying. Very little dialogue and so unbelievable. a definite waste of money. the only time to see this is when its free and even then its still a waste of time.

Horrible monologues, a storyline that is cliche and two dimensional characters at best and the result is well a mind blowing boring 2 hours of events played on a screen.

The story opens up with Jade's Graduation, her brother died some years back and her family has sheltered her in their big mansion. Jade doesn't have friends and is to be forgotten however David is in love with her and has been for years even though he never talked to her before he decided to finally do so at their graduation and one thing leads to another and they embark on a romance when Jade realises that David is everything she needs *she doesn't need a family, she doesn't need a University education or a financially stable job, she doesn't need friends* she just needs this one person to make her life a happy one.

I guess in the world of factious romance this might very well be possible, but the way the movie was executed was so bland and awful it didn't even convince me of the notion that Romance and love at first sight can possibly work even on screen! This movie has nothing new to offer, Jack and Rose mushed with Romeo and Juliet and The Notebook! A young love that is forbidden by social standards and of course familial objection. How many more stories and romantic films have we seen this in?

I thought the movie's plot was silly and doesn't bring much depth in the movie. It was a simple sweet love story, but I don't get why Jade is characterized like an innocent girl where she does the "ssshhh" sound in the make out scenes or twirl around on the meadow yet show her side undies to David. Oh and after the initial meet, Jade decides to call David up at night so they can be more intimate. They slept together a bit too early. Some message that innocent girls are easy? Not much build up in character development or understanding. (how the feeling was built to that stage)

It would be nice to think everything is simple in love. A little bit of walk to remember and notebook story line. The guy wants to be a better person for her (applied for college) and he helped her out of her shell. The girl falls for the guy unknowingly that he was a bad ass prior meeting him, but still loves him anyway. Nicolas Sparks movie wannabe, but not really. It's a movie about the privilege kids, innocent girl Jade and hopeless in love David having fun and not thinking about the future. The idea of believing in the ideal world of love and nothing else matters.

The soundtrack was good though.

I am a big fan of romance movies, but this one was pure s***. Nothing was real or believable about it and it has so many cheesy moments that the writers thought would look romantic, but they were just so dumb and corny.
