Finally, finally, finally, the sequel to my most recent favorite romantic comedy is out.
Netflix’s ‘To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You,’ the heartwarming follow-up for ‘To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before’ released in 2018 based on the book series written by Jenny Han starring Lana Condor and Noah Centineo.
The film began with the cutesy charm that the first movie ended with, and moments later, a mini-train wreck occurred as Lara Jean struggled with her budding feelings and insecurities with Peter and the resurgence of her feelings for a grade school crush, John Ambrose.
I have to ask, am I the only one that watched this movie with a stupid half-grin the entire time?
Even with the subtle background rejuvenation of Lara Jean’s father and his love life was romantic to watch.
There are so many opportunities for Lara Jean to set the record straight with John Ambrose. However, she never takes them, which leads to a super awkward series of events when a bunch of her old friends digs up a time capsule from grade school.
Did you cry?
Several moments in this movie were gut-wrenching. My heart mainly dropped during the aquarium scene. I kept thinking, how the heck are they going to wrap this up into a happy ending with 20 minutes left?
As bad as I felt when Lara Jean danced with John Ambrose, I couldn’t help but smile. But, I wailed in happiness with tears rolling down my face when Peter showed up to cure drama that had taken place over the last hour and a half. It was such a beautiful ending.
To All the Boys: Ps. I love you, continues the trend of innocent romance that everyone wishes they had, myself included. It’s a lovely story, and I’m excited to see the third installment play out for these characters.
Wikipedia states the third film has already begun filming.
