Drama - This is a romantic comedy-drama aimed at female moviegoers. Fans of

ditto those of Lisa Kudrow. The film is fairly slow and runs over

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 111 moviegoers:Great Reviews from virtually everyone! The ladies loved this movie very much. Only a small percentage rated it as low as average. Even the guys enjoyed "P.S. I Love You," so it's not just a movie for the ladies. Highly Recommended as a Great Date Movie.
Holly Kennedy (Hilary Swank) is beautiful, smart, and married to the love of her
life—a passionate, funny and impetuous Irishman named Gerry (Gerard Butler). So
when Gerry's life is taken by an illness, it takes the life out of Holly. The only one who
can help her is the person who is no longer there. Nobody knows Holly better than
Gerry. So it's a good thing he planned ahead.
Before he died, Gerry wrote Holly a series of letters that will guide her, not only
through her grief but in rediscovering herself. The first message arrives on Holly's 30th
birthday in the form of a cake and, to her utter shock, a tape recording from Gerry, who
proceeds to order her to get out and "celebrate herself." In the weeks and months that
follow, more letters from Gerry are delivered in surprising ways, each sending her on a
new adventure and each signing off in the same way: P.S. I Love You.
Holly's mother (Kathy Bates) and best friends, Denise (Lisa Kudrow) and Sharon
(Gina Gershon), begin to worry that Gerry's letters are keeping Holly tied to the past, but,
in fact, each letter is pushing her further into a new future.
With Gerry's words as her guide, Holly embarks on a touching, exciting and often
hilarious journey of rediscovery in a story about marriage, friendship and how a love so
strong can turn the finality of death into a new beginning for life.
