I hated every calculated second of it with a passion.

...a consistently watchable romantic comedy that's certainly a far cry from its underwhelming brethren...

Reel Film Reviews

Shmoopy or not, the movie worked for me.

Full Review… | September 8, 2008

Lisa Kudrow, the designated comic relief, has never been so consistently unfunny, and Gina Gershon looks uncomfortable in every (pseudo-)inspirational moment.

Hilary Swank may have two Oscars, but P.S. I Love You proves she has plenty to learn about romantic comedies.

Audience Reviews for P.S. I Love You


A very cute movie that made me laugh and cry. A top notch cast that kept me waiting. While I didnt cry at every letter like a certain someone in my life. The story and acting were excellent.

Interesting movie. I can't imagine what it would be like to have a spouse die on you, but what Gerry does for Holly is pretty special.

The premise is so unbelievable I can't believe no one questions it: dying husband plans grieving wife's moves months in advance. How does he know??? "No one cares, its just a plot device, and the story's sooo sad..." I kept waiting for a letter to arrive out of the planned order. Anyway, a chick flick about love that reaches from beyond the grave ... and about getting on with living. The actors are good.
