Little more than a cryfest for those looking to release their own emotions, rather than experience anything new.

By mid-film I was praying for Clint Eastwood to show up and take Swank off life support. No such luck.

Alas, we never buy the depth of Holly and Gerry's love because the chemistry between Swank and Butler is nonexistent.

[Hilary] Swank's raw, genuine performance stands out -- like an emerald on a compost heap -- against the canned warmth...

It's Million Dollar Cry Baby. P.S. I Love You is the most potent tear jerker since The Notebook. It's not as profound or skillful, but there certainly hasn't been anything that makes you so happy to cry since then.

If you're looking for a great date movie so you can get laid over the holidays, this is the one.

This is the kind of movie that was made for the female audience and we thank you. PS, take Kleenex.

[T]his wonderful movie... is not relentlessly grim, but it is endlessly poignant even in its lightest moments...

The end dedication (to the producer's late sister) reminds us that even a disposable commercial film can be extremely personal and meaningful for the people involved in its creation.

Snippets of sharp, witty dialogue are lost in a sea of sappy clichés and too-cute-for-words plot twists.

Hillary Swank makes the best of her lonely heart role but never gets to take off the gloves in an entertaining romantic drama. Supporting she-wolf Lisa Kudrow steals the show.

Swank does her best, but she seems lost in the movie's identity crisis, taking the project seriously one moment and doing a pratfall off a karaoke stage the next.

The film does have its share of funny, winning, and heartwarming/emotional moments, but the rest feel artificial and contrived, from the basic conceit to the various smaller elements that are too familiar and/or forced to elicit any sort of favorable resp

The movie is so bent on conjuring big, sweeping emotions that it becomes a bit scattershot, starting down way too many tear-jerking roads but never going down any of them far enough to discover any real substance.

Doesn't add anything fresh or special or memorable to our understanding of the grief process.

The supporting roles are all handled well by experienced actors, and they have good material to work with.

P.S. I Love You isn't as pathetically sappy as the title might sound. OK, maybe it is a little...

Some actors are better suited to straight-ahead dramas. Swank appears to be one of them.

It's tough going relieved only by some lovely Irish scenery.

It's the sort of movie that no man will ever go to unless dragged by a woman. His sole reward will be the sight of Swank in sexy underwear.
