TO ALL THE BOYS – P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU (2020): The Thing I Liked…

My thoughts on To All The Boys – P.S. I Still Love You isn’t at all dissimilar to how I felt about 2018’s To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before; a drama / romance where a teenage girl’s secret love letters get exposed. 

I’m still technically not the target market but I don’t completely regret watching director Michael Fimognari’s latest film either. With the movie’s two protagonists now officially in a relationship, we get to see Lara Jean (Lana Condor) have to decide between new boyfriend Peter (Noah Centineo) and another recipient of her love letters, John Ambrose (Jordan Fisher) who just showed up.

How Lara Jean handles the situation doesn’t result in things going especially smoothly. Instead we get to see her and Peter make more of the common mistakes of young love (not that adults are immune, of course). My non-teenage self found watching said mistakes a tad frustrating. Yet not so much that I wanted to stop watching. It’s no wonder then that I like the last quarter of the film best, since that’s when the young characters finally wise up and balance is finally restored.

I’m quite certain that almost all the teenage girls out there who have a Centineo crush or not don’t need me to tell them to watch this movie. That’s because they already did and / or are watching it for the 4th time right now. I tuned in because I didn’t dislike the first one, which I think I definitely prefer. I prefer it in part because it had more going on than just the main love story.

Another reason I watched Fimognari’s film is there’s always room in my life for some ‘easy viewing’ movies and as non-teenager, this is certainly that for me.

Watch it if you’re curious.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of To All The Boys P.S. I Still Love You (2020).


To All The Boys P.S. I Still Love You, the sequel to To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is here with a new trailer starring Lana Condor and Noah Centineo.

The story picks up from when Lara Jean (Condor) and Peter (Centineo) are officially together but then another recipient of Lara Jean’s love letters enters the picture.

The teenage girl I used to be, the one who had a number of all consuming crushes will definitely be mad at me if I don’t watch this.

TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE (2018): The Things I Liked…

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, the story of a teenage girl whose secret love letters to five crushes end up being delivered is not a bad movie.

Though Love Simon (2018) is still very much my favourite high school movie in a while, I liked how good director Susan Johnson’s film was at taking me back to that time when I too was a high schooler with an all consuming crush.

Besides the gift of reminiscing, I enjoyed seeing John Corbett in his role as a father to three daughters. I also definitely liked the look and design of the teenage protagonist’s bedroom – even though it’s not how I’d like my teenage room to look.

Overall, I’d say that To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is an adequately entertaining movie that felt very teenage. This is probably why my non-teenage self found some of the mistakes the teenagers in the movie made, quite frustrating to watch.

Lead by Lana Condor, the entire cast did a good job and I’m not that mad at the end result.

You’ll likely guess how things will play out soon after the film starts but I say watch it anyway. Especially if reminiscing about high school won’t hurt. And definitely watch it if you’re in high school. I’d probably have loved it more if I’d been in high school when this movie came out.

TO ALL THE BOYS I’VE LOVED BEFORE (2018): New Trailer From Susan Johnson, Starring Lana Condor, John Corbett, Noah Centineo, Emilija Baranac…

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is a new drama / romance that tells the story of  teenage girl whose secret love letters are exposed.

Based on the novel by Jenny Han; Lana Condor, John Corbett, Noah Centineo and Emilija Baranac star…

As I watched this trailer, I thought ‘here we go, just the same old teen story…’ But then the reason the protagonist faints at the beginning is revealed and I decide that I could probably dedicate some time to this movie. Especially since – luckily for me, my high school crush was never so cruel as to tell me that nothing would ever happen between us.

I’m going to let this movie take me back to my early teenage years as I reminisce about  the boy who made school an event I was always more than happy to wake up for.

To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before Release Dates: August 17th, 2018 (US)…
