Two Line Reviews - #108

Movie: P.S. I Love You (2007)

Plot: An estranged widow shocked by the unfortunate and untimely loss of her husband is brought back to her senses and normalcy by a chain of pre-planned letters conceived by none other than the dead husband!

  • The idea shown is sweet,strange & positive - Helps in making the viewer eager to know what's going to be up next.
  • Hilary Swank is best when it comes to expressing emotions. She does that in this film too. She's at her innocent best when she says "What vital parts?All my parts are vital" in the Wild-Irish dog scene & her final emotional outburst at the hands of her mom is classy.
  • The characterisations of Gerry (Gerard Butler) & Holly's Mom are good too.
  • The final letter and the little twist it brings!
  • The friends of Holly (especially Denise) & the Irish band guitarist seem like interruptions & they irritate.
  • The film moves a tad too slow.
My Rating: 8.5/10


  1. Denise and Sharon's(Holly's friends) characters had life in the book! The trio were friends and it was meaningful! The characters portrayed in the movie was nowhere close to that! John was indeed Gerard's Best Man as well and that explained their beautiful friendship!

    William and Daniel's characters were portrayed so beautifully in the book!! The movie dint show anything related at all! :(

    Holly's character was very close except for a few scenes! Gerry's was pretty much the same!!

    Hilary and Gerard were the ones I imagined the characters with anyway!!(You know why)

    Read the book, you'll find it much better! The rating will definitely be higher than this!!! :)

  2. Oh... Not much into reading romantic stuff.. Probably some stuff was lost in transition from book to film.
