Landon CarterShane West
so sexy/sweet you'll want to:
contract a sickness just so he'll dance with you in the moonlight or buy you a star.
|Everyone agrees with me when I say that I will remember this movie. Why? Because first of all, it came right after Crossroads which had very bad acting from Britney Spears. Then suddenly here comes Mandy Moore with the obvious difference. She can actually act. Then of course, it always helped that this movie had a much sweeter/sexier guy in the form of Shane West.|
Yes, Landon Carter swept me off my feet from the moment he stepped out of his car in the first scene. He is the ultimate bad boy, because he isn't really all that bad. He's my favorite type of bad boy -- the ones who look tough on the outside, but are in fact, absolutely sweet on the inside. Nicholas Sparks probably created Landon thinking he wanted to be just like this guy.
How can you not resist him when he tells you this:
Landon: I might kiss you.
Jamie: I might be bad at it.
Landon: That's not possible.
In fact, I wouldn't even try explaining my inadequacy in that department -- though I am a neophyte -- because all I'd be thinking about was yanking him towards me before he changes his mind. **cough** cheap **cough**
The movie has so many cute scenes of Landon that it's too hard to name a single favorite one. His effort doesn't go unnoticed when he learns how to dance for her. That's just too absolutely sweet of him. And he's so freaking cool that he makes mopping the floor with his walkman look absolutely sexy!
And of course, bad boys are best when they corner you and bring out the guns. Interrogations and confrontations are my favorites:
Jamie: You don't know the first thing about being someone's friend.
Landon: I don't just want to be your friend.
Jamie: You don't know what you want.
Landon: Neither do you. Maybe you're just scared that someone might just want to be with you.
Jamie: And why would that scare me?
Landon: Because then you wouldn't be able to hide behind your books, your freakin' telescope, or your faith. No, you know the real reason why you're scared? It's cause you wanna be with me too.
Landon, I wanna be with you too.
