P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU. The sequel to TO ALL THE BOYS I LOVED BEFORE, the movie that robbed us of our hearts two years back. If you have no idea what I am talking about, you might want to check my review of it here.
Anyway, I am months late with this review. I only recently watched it after postponing and postponing. What do I have to say about it now that I have watched it?
Umm, first, let us catch up with all those who are lost in this ramble by giving them a synopsis of what P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU is all about.
P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU is, as I have mentioned earlier, a sequel to the teen romance movie/novel following the life of Lara Jean, an Asian American quirky and might I say, quite a romantic person.
In the first movie, TO ALL THE BOYS I LOVED BEFORE, we see the non-existent life of Lara Jean becoming suddenly existent after her sister Kat “accidentally” sends out five love letters Lara Jean had been writing to her crushes since she learned how to write.
We follow her journey after that, and how she and Peter Kavinsky, the popular jock who was one of the recipients of the love letters, fall in love.
TO ALL THE BOYS I LOVED BEFORE has the perfect ending, but, not before we are shown what to expect in the sequel, in which, one of the other recipients of the love letters, John Ambrose comes back to town, and alas, he has feelings for Lara Jean.
We are left with the question of who Lara Jean will choose in the end; Peter Kavinsiky, her jock boyfriend who might still have feelings for an ex or John Ambrose, the nice guy that seems to get everything about Lara Jean perfectly.
It is the twist of every teen romance movie and watching it, honestly, I already knew who Lara Jean would choose from the very beginning.
But, I still watched it. That is the magic of these types of movies. They are like modern-day fairy tales. You know how they are going to end but still, still, you will watch till the end, fascinated by the quirkiness of the characters, the teen romance oozing from them, their innocent youth.
I will say one thing though that I wholly loved about this sequel. The Soundtrack. It was a bomb. Every song was just perfect.
If I were to rate this movie, I will give it a 6/10; a 1 for the soundtrack of course.
And now to the next series NEVER HAVE I EVER, available on Netflix. Here is a trailer of it; go watch it and let us talk about it next time.
