To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You Is a Very Long Title
After disliking Noah Centineo so intently in The Perfect Date, I was gun-shy of To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You, but Michael Fimognari managed to include enough good relationship things* that I came away satisfied. And sometimes in a woman’s life there is a period where the boys come out of the woodwork, and this is rarely represented on film, so that was fun. This is solid, middle-tier movie making, perfect for two hours of untroubled movie viewing.**
The verdict: Good
Cost: Netflix monthly fee ($8.99)
Where watched: at home
Consider also watching:
*The indie drama fan in me is always interested in what happens after the couple gets together and there were a lot of first-relationship troubles.
**There are troubles, of course, because otherwise there wouldn’t be a movie. But no one is dying here.

Favorite IMDB trivia item:
Jordan Fisher plays John Ambrose McClaren in this movie. In To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (2018) the role of John Ambrose was played by a different actor, Jordan Burtchett.
(I wondered about this, but was too lazy to check. Thanks IMDB trivia writer!)
