This weeper that can't wring out tears.
| Original Score: 2/5
P.S. I Love You is the cinematic equivalent of a Celine Dion song.
| Original Score: 2/4
LaGravenese has sliced away the worst of Ahern's excruciating prose, but that proves a negative virtue.
Romantic comedies...need twinkle. Her character wears twinkly dresses and does twinkly things, but Swank delivers her lines as though she is still slamming into that heavy bag.
| Original Score: C
P.S. I don't like you at all.
| Original Score: 1/4
There is nothing special about this romance.
Even fans of the romantic comedy genre might have trouble suspending disbelief for this ridiculous bit of fluff that rarely knows whether it wants to be a serious drama about grieving or a light comedy about finding love.
| Original Score: 3/10
The film's cutesy, high-concept premise strains credibility, and the sitcommy situations (see Swank fall off the stage while performing sexy karaoke!) never quite jive with attempts at poignancy.
| Original Score: D+
Hilary Swank may have two Oscars, but P.S. I Love You proves she has plenty to learn about romantic comedies.
There are many good actresses unsuited for romantic comedies, and Hilary Swank, despite her considerable talents, is one of them.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Hilary Swank doesn't usually play girlie roles, and this unabashed chick flick demonstrates why: She's not very girlie.
It was Irish overkill. There didn't seem to be a chronological plan with the letters, so poor Holly is just forced to sit and wait to hear from her dead husband.
| Original Score: 4/10
Lisa Kudrow, the designated comic relief, has never been so consistently unfunny, and Gina Gershon looks uncomfortable in every (pseudo-)inspirational moment.
| Original Score: 1/5
P.S. I Love You isn't as pathetically sappy as the title might sound. OK, maybe it is a little...
[Hilary] Swank's raw, genuine performance stands out -- like an emerald on a compost heap -- against the canned warmth...
It's tough to believe that any leading lady could've done much with writer-director Richard LaGravenese's lackluster material.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
P.S. I Love You is as treacly as the title would suggest.
Some actors are better suited to straight-ahead dramas. Swank appears to be one of them.
B.S. I Love You would be a more accurate title.
more of a waste of time than an enjoyed vicarious journey
