Added DiffLines:

* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Despite the synopsis given above, this trope is subverted. Jamie is not attracted to him at the start of the film, and calls him out on many of his "bad boy" qualities (such as his need to be popular and acting like a jerk to her in front of his friends). It's not until after he drops the act and changes his ways that she begins to fall, too.

* OverprotectiveDad: Jamie's father comes off as a bit overbearing at times.

to:

* OverprotectiveDad: Jamie's father comes off is very overprotective, and is implied as a bit overbearing having been so even before her diagnosis. However, he is somewhat justified in his wariness of Landon given his behavior at times.the start of the film and his insincerity in his initial friendship with Jamie. He also makes a point that Jamie getting too involved with Landon while she is dying (and without telling him) isn't fair to Landon.
