Who cares about your favourite 100 films when your most hated 100 is far more interesting and illuminating. If I…
P.S. I Love You
His life ended. Now, a new one will begin.
A young widow discovers that her late husband has left her 10 messages intended to help ease her pain and start a new life.
A wonderfully sweet romantic comedy! Considering its premise deals with the loss of a significant other the bouts of melancholy were expected!
Gerard Butler and Jeffrey Dean Morgan were both tall cool glasses of water that were easy on the eyes! So yes a good time was had in this household to be sure! I simply had no idea that Ireland was such a hotspot for finding love! If I'd a known I would have gone there years ago! I'm past my expiration date so I guess I'll have to settle for a big bowl of Lucky Charms!
The film was far from perfect it had a few scenes that were so overtly contrived it took me out of the moment! And Hilary Swank looked like a fish out of water one too many times!
But there were also some warm and genuinely touching moments that made the whole film worthwhile!
It's like the romantic comedy version of Law Abiding Citizen
They both star Gerard Butler.
He must be some kind of strategic mastermind in real life.
Bring enough tissues to last a couple of hours (no, not in that way), ok - press play
I have to admit I am suprised I actually enjoyed this film and found it very touching. I did not expect much from this movie as I thought it was miscast. I didnt expect the 300 actor Gerard Butler would fit in a romantic comedy but I found his character very enjoyable with a morbid sense of humor, literally. So I admit that I found the characters very loveable and believable. Hillary Swank and Gerard Butler both have good chemistry together and this film played out nicely as I found it different from other chick flicks. P.S. is a very enjoyable and warm film which I recomend.
It's impressive that in a film with two Irish romantic leads, neither one of them is played by an Irishman.
Also they both sing, and Harry Connick Jr. doesn't.
This is a great romance that doesn't turn your stomach or fall to clichés. It's heartfelt, it's original, and it's deeply engaging. Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler have a lovely chemistry together which makes the premise of this film truly heartbreaking. With a great supporting cast too and a beautiful soundtrack, it hits a nerve every time.
P.S. (See what I did there?) I wish Gerard Butler was actually Irish.
Cecilia Ahern, the author of the novel created a masterpiece when she wrote P.S. I Love You. It is completely a new take on the romantic genre and I loved each and every moment, starting from the simple husband-wife relationship and the working hard to make the ends meet concept to the letters.
Hilary Swank(Holly Kennedy) and Gerard Butler(Gerry Kennedy) played their role really well as directed.
But I guess a love story whose main objective is to play with human emotions cannot be expressed much in any movie. The novel will make you think as if you are the character and feel how you want to feel.
That said, P.S. I Love You didn't deliver the justice to it's Parent novel.
But it's nice and calming and fun.
Suspend disbelief and enjoy the bittersweet romance
Such a beautiful film. Will make you laugh and cry throughout. Brilliant...
What i loved about that movie is the loyalty with reality although there are too much coecidences and Gerry is sort of fortuneteller.
I didn't feel enought drama for the plot of the movie.
This sad, sloppy love story with the ideas of both love and loss gets me every time. I can't pinpoint whether its Gerard Butler's Irish allure or the narrative itself, but either way I'm hooked. What can I say; I'm a sucker for Rom/Com's.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
At first I thought I would see another romantic movie, starring my fav Gerard Butler. Then he dies. So what's the point of watching a movie that the main character (or so I thought) is dead from the beginning of the film?
Then something happens. Holly (Hilary Swank) gets all these letters and it's like Gerry (Gerard Butler) is giving her directions on how to move on in every aspect of her life.
I loved it cause, even though it seems extremely out of our league to move on after such loss, the movie is full of optimism, and it shows us that life really goes on one way or another.
