Storyline

Holly Kennedy is beautiful, smart and married to the love of her life - a passionate, funny, and impetuous Irishman named Gerry. 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 tell 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.

Trivia

The whole letter Gerry sent to his mom and dad in Ireland says: "Dear Mum & Dad. Well, Doc says there's not much time, so I thought I'd write to you, seeing how bad we Kennedy's are with modern day contraptions like telephones. Tell Dad to not lay about, and to take care of his legs-keep them walking. I always think of Dad walking across the farm yelling after the hands too lazy to keep the chickens fed. And you Mum, yelling at Dad to treat the boys with a Father's hand, not a father's belt. I remember everything Mum. And I thank you for giving me a mother's breath of life and love. No son ever loved a mother more, I can tell you that. Never could say it to your face. Nor to Dad. But I love you." See more »

Goofs

During the scene when Holly is visiting her in-laws, Rosie is searching for a specific portion of the letter and turns the page from front to back. After Holly says/asks that Gerry knew she would come to visit them, Rosie once again turns the page from front to back. See more »

Biggest Tear Jerker in years
3 December 2007 | by mmoyleSee all my reviews

This movie will make you cry and make you fall in love with Gerlad Butler(what a guy what an accent yum) definitely a chick flick my friend was crying by the second scene however in amongst all the sniffles was some laughs and overall I did enjoy the movie. While Gerlad and Jeffrey Morgan were both excellent Hillary well it's not that she was bad, just unexpected I'm not used to seeing her play this type of part and I just don't think she is suited to the role would the movie have been better without her probably not a standard rom-com actress definitely would have pushed it over the edge into bad territory. Overall an enjoyable chick flick definitely one to take your mum and girlfriends to just don't forget the tissues !
