P.S. I Love You star Hilary Swank as Holly Kennedy. Holly is a recent widower who lost her husband to a battle with cancer. As she tries to regain her life, her late spouse has decided to help make it easier for her. Gerard Butler is Gerry Kennedy, the beloved late husband, who eases his widow with letters and gifts after his passing. These are delivered to Holly in many different forms and each letter has a new task that he would like Holly to complete. All the while having Holly complete these tasks; he is taking her for a stroll down memory lane.

p-s-i-love-you Holly begins to start her life anew, by searching for a new job. She has good friends for support. Denise (Lisa Kudrow) and Sharon (Gina Gershon) are their for support should she need it. That is until she discovers that both of her friends are going to be having life altering changes, one is getting married and the other is having a baby. Holly finds it hard to accept her friend’s happiness while she is still searching for her own. As her final letters begin to come in, will Holly ever find her happiness?

This film had a good purpose and contained romance, but it was a little overkill. It went from soul mates to corny love story. I love romance and the idea that love is never-ending, but this film was a bore. The only fine points were when Holly was with her friends, trying to enjoy life. Everything else was so wishy-washy and unbearable to watch. Punch line should read P.S. I Love You – If you can sit through this 2 hour film and not become nauseated. Hopefully the book is much better than what the film had to offer.
