The only reason to this ultra-modest, underwhelming indie is Laura Linney's performance as a mature woman falling for a man half her age.

A hidden gem, worth hunting for...

The actors elevate the material a bit, but they can't escape the fact that the movie only has vague goals set for itself.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

It's a romantic comedy-drama that's every bit as unpredictable, offbeat and assured as Kidd's first film, although some third-act problems keep it from real greatness.

Linney directs her scenes from within them, holding our attention and keeping the focus on her confusion, her pain and her hope.

p.s. is a showcase for Linney, who juggles Louise's many self-contradictions ... in a bright and humor-filled performance.

The Stranger (Seattle, WA)
December 4, 2004
When the film dispenses with its Harlequinish plot foolishness and flies on the director's considerable instinct, it's a gas.

An interesting misstep...the lead performances are superb, but even they can't make up for the hard-to-swallow story.

No matter how good Laura Linney is, she can't overcome this movie that goes nowhere and has nothing really interesting to say.

Lost me about halfway through and never got me back.

Both genders are programmed by eons of Darwinian genetic strategy, and so we believe them, and because Linney and Grace are sexy and play well together, the age gap is not a barrier so much as additional seasoning.

Despite an excellent supporting cast something in p.s. goes mushy and implausible.

Can't seem to make up its mind whether it's a romantic comedy, a drama or a psychological thriller and settles for being an odd -- and unbelievable -- hybrid of all three.
| Original Score: 2/4

...menopausal drama full of hot flashes and preposterous plot turns. P.S., Linney overacts too.
Paula Nechak
Seattle Post-Intelligencer
November 11, 2004
p.s. wanders off on story tangents that can't be called anything other than bizarre, but nevertheless oddly engages.

Dylan Kidd is back with an intimate and endearing love story featuring some exceptional performances and solid writing.**

Provides a sort of middlebrow mainstream rom-com conventions-satisfied satisfaction.

Valley Scene Magazine

With Roger Dodger, Kidd knew that his strength was in creating two compelling characters, so he left everyone else in the background. This time he's stretching, and it shows.

P.S. offers two plum roles for stars Laura Linney and Topher Grace and at least three plots for them to unravel
