P. S. I Love You (2007)


Her young husband dies; he has left a series of messages for her as she reclaims her life; she has to choose between two new men; her gal pals are there for her, but there are plenty of emotional ups and downs.

Over to you, really: a romcomdram that is so carefully tailored to its target audience that I am incapable of judging it on just about any level at all. My wife observed that it is "very Ally McBeal", and it is; it's up to you whether that's a good thing or a bad thing.
A few hazarded pointers: it's probably a mite too long for what it is; there's the usual snappy, buzzwordy dialogue and performances; the characters are put through the wringer a little more than is generally the case for films with this sort of poster art. Hilary Swank is her customary likeable self; business as usual from Lisa Kudrow; nice to see Gina Gershon again; whatever appeal Gerard Butler holds is lost on me entirely. You already know if you'll probably like it or not.
