About the Movie
Halley is a young high school student who is disillusioned with love after seeing the many dysfunctional relationships around her. Her parents are now divorced and her father has a new young girlfriend she doesn't care for too much. Her mother is now always alone; and her sister is so overwhelmed by her upcoming wedding that she barely leaves the house anymore. On top of that, the shallowness of all the girls and guys at her school convinces Halley that finding true love is impossible. A tragic accident, however, leads her to meeting Macon, and suddenly Halley finds that true love can occur under unusual circumstances. Starring Mandy Moore ("A Walk to Remember," "The Princess Diaries"), Trent Ford ("Gosford Park," "September Dawn"), Alexandra Holden (TV's "Friends," "The Hot Chick"), Golden Globe-winner Peter Gallagher ("Short Cuts," TV's "The O.C.") and Emmy-winner and Golden Globe-nominee Allison Janney (TV's "The West Wing," "Juno").

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The pop diva goes down with the bubbles in this hopelessly shallow soap opera.
Rotten: A picture that's all over the map.
Rotten: May serve as training wheels for the next generation of romance novel fans.
Rotten: A bad, unimaginative story posing pretentiously as the very opposite.
How To Be A Genius Movie
this movie is just so great. it is one of Mandy's best, next to A Walk To Remember, and it has everything you want in a movie. its funny, full of emotion and real. A Must See.
Sucha great movie. From family issues, and how hard and wonderful love and life can be, this movie is as good as is gets. Makes you realize that taking chances.....you might not be sure about,can turn out to be the best thing you could ever do. Mandy is so amazing and beautiful and full of real emotions that i'm sure many of us can relate too : )
It's based on a couple of Sarah Dessen's books, and I think it fits them perfectly.
