PS I Love You, Review

Updated on March 1, 2020

P.S. I Love You

2008, ****, Romantic-Comedy

Gerard Butler, Hilary Swank, Harry Connick Jr., Lisa Kudrow, and Kathy Bates star in this unforgettable, creative love story, about a woman that loses her husband to a brain tumor. He write her letters so that when he dies, she will be reminded of all the happy times they spent together, and can heal in her own way. Hilary Swank is a working woman, but really wants to stay at home and raise a family. Gerard Butler is a wannabe musician who she meets while aboard in college (we only see them as teenagers for a couple of scenes in the flick) and falls madly in love with him. They are a fun couple, and it's truly sad to watch Swank's character go through a series of events that helps her keep their relationship alive, while see mourns him. Kathy Bates plays Swank's mother in the film. Lisa Kudrow is her crazy-sarcastic friend who knows how to break the ice with men, and has some awesome one-liners! Also the early 90's romancer Harry Connick Jr. plays a friend and potential love interest of Swank.

The film starts off with a hilarious bantering scene with Gerry (Gerard Butler, "300," "Dracula 2000," "Dear Frankie") and Holly Kennedy (Hilary Swank, "Million Dollar Baby," "Boys Don't Cry," "Freedom Writers"). Then out of no where, we find out Gerry dies, and here is an informal service held for him at his favorite pub, in NYC, where Holly and Gerry live.

Holly (Swank) stays in her apartment, for several days after the death of her husband Gerry (Butler). She begins having visions of Gerry playing the guitar for her. Her friends and mother (Bates) come over and encourage her to leave the apartment. Over the course of a year, after Gerry's death, Holly receives letters, like he'd never even left earth. He sends her on errands, trips, and more. The healing process begins, and her friends help her on these remembrance missions. We are also taken to the place where it all begin, Ireland.

As always, Gerard Butler is charming as ever. Every film he does a knock out performance, with or without armor. There is real chemistry between Swank and Butler. Swank is also great in her role as Holly. I've been watching a lot of her films lately and she is truly a talent-reminds me of Julia Roberts, however, I like Swank better. Lisa Kudrow as Denise is the best friend/sidekick. She gets right to the point with all of her potential men in the film. "Are you single?" "Are you gay?" You get my drift- she's blunt as ever, just like her role as Phobe in the hit TV series, "Friends." She really does a fantastic performance. Also-new talent-Jeffery Dean Morgan plays Gerry's best friend (a musician in Ireland) and a possible love interest for Swank.

You need to see this film, great cast, and great love story, and proves that love lasts even when you're gone. It is a must buy, if you're a lover of the romantic-comedy-drama flicks.
