When Charlotte hands Will her notebook in Wills bedroom, and we first see 'Phil's Song', the words 'Phil's Song' are written in red writing. But when Charlotte plays 'Phil's Song' on the piano and we see the notebook again, and we clearly see that the writing of 'Phil's Song' is now in newspaper cuttings, not red writing like it was previously in Wills bedroom.

The premise of this movie is not extraordinary. I say it's pretty common.
The ingredients are: (1) a boy (of the unpopular type) who has a charisma (understands music, although he doesn't seem to play an instrument) moves to a new town because his mom got a new job (2) a single mom (of the teenage boy) (3) a girl (of the cheerleader type) who likes boy 1 (4) another boy (of the popular type this time) who use to be the boyfriend of popular girl 3 and learns to hate boy 1 (5) A public contest of some sort...
...(wait this is exactly like the ingredients of ...The Karate Kid!)...except for Mr. Miyagi! ...
and (6) Vanessa Hudgens playing a good girl (!) of the lonely type who also happens to like boy 1.
Anyway. This doesn't look or feels nothing like The Karate Kid despite my comparison! It's basically a teen dramedy. Young hopes. Young love. Friendship.
It's enjoyable enough. It has music and some (not very good) teeny songs. It may attract the younger audience but this movie is far from deep or interesting. Pretty standard stuff really.
