Holly Kennedy is beautiful, smart and married to the love of her life, a passionate, funny, and impetuous Irishman named Gerry. So when his life is taken by an illness, it takes the life out of Holly. 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 a tape recording from Gerry. 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 and best friends 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.

I didn't like the book at all, but when I saw that Harry Connick Jr is in this, I decided to give it a try. Turns out, he is the only bright spot in this film. And sadly, that's not saying much. I didn't like any of the characters (with the exception of HCJ's "Daniel"), and didn't feel anything while watching. There were a few funny moments, but mostly it was lackluster. The cast picks could have been MUCH better, and I honestly think I would have enjoyed it more. Hilary's character is supposed to be an "inconsolable grieving widow", but she hardly ever shows any emotion. Had I not read the book, I wouldn't have known how her husband died, as it's not even mentioned until later in the film. And even then, they barely touch the subject. The beginning of the film starts out trying to show the audience what a loving relationship Hilary and her husband have. Instead, we are shown a fight between the couple' and there is never any real motive for it. And from this, we are supposed to feel sorry for Hilary's character and sad when her husband dies? If you want to see a truly touching and swoon-worthy film about losing a spouse, rent "Return to Me".

Sorry. It was too sappy for me and couldn't watch more than a few minutes of it. : (

I did not like this film. I felt the director played on the viewers emotions to carry the plot. I also felt the lead character wasn't allowed to grieve on her own timeline. The ending was predictable and unrealistic.

I'm really not big on Hilary Swank. At all. But I love Butler, so I had to give it a go. I cried, throughout the whole thing pretty much. Swank was only OK, but Butler was brilliant. I'm not sure how I feel about Jeffrey Dean Morgan's Irish accent though... but not bad as a whole, worth watching at least once if you're a Butler or a romance fan.

I don't think it's a realistic concept, but it was very sweet. I cried and laughed through out the movie. I think this is the only movie of Hillary Swank I like.

This movie was alright, great script, and I loved the concept. I just don't care for Hillary Swank. If you like her you will enjoy this movie.
