P.S. I Love You (2007) is a romance comedy about a young widow receiving letters from her deceased husband written before he died to help her with the grieving process.
Ultimately, the movie is worth the watch simply for the charming chemistry between the two leads, Hilary Swank and Gerard Butler. Swank, who plays the widow, and Butler, who plays the deceased husband, have an insane amount of chemistry in all the flashback scenes. The natural charm of both actors mix in a way that makes their characters’ relationship feel real. It feels like they have actually been together for years and truly love each other. Their charming relationship and love for each other makes me forget in the first five minutes that the entire plot of the movie is that the husband is about to die. Their charm is simply intoxicating.
While the rest of the movie is perfectly fine, any scene in the present day had me wondering when the next flash back would be so I could get another peak into Swank and Butler’s characters’ relationship. I don’t know if that’s a positive or negative towards the movie, but its how I felt.
I don’t think the rest of the movie is really anything that special but all the flash back scenes, which there are quite a few, are all so incredibly charming that it makes the movie worth it.
If you are in the mood to get drunk on the chemistry between two actors, I can not recommend this movie enough.
