P.S. I love you, starring Gerard Butler and Hillary Swank

P.S. I love you, starring Gerard Butler and Hillary Swank

It occurred to me I never got to write about this sweetheart of a flick. I wrote a lot about Gerard Butler and while I included pictures from the movie before , I never wrote a proper movie review. Shame on me. So here we go:
Gerry (Gerard Butler) is an adorable Irish guy married to the American Holly. Though they have been married for some time now, they are still crazy about each other. Sure, they have problems; but nothing they can’t get over. So Holly’s world comes crashing down when Gerry suddenly dies. It has been love at first sight. And after a great marriage of 9 years, Holly just doesn’t know how to cope. But the sweet man that he is, Gerry has thought ahead. He has written letters and arranged them to arrive to Holly at certain times after his death. He speaks to her through the letters, instructing and guiding her, in an attempt to help her cope with his death and life. The letters will take Holly to both fun and emotional journeys in the past, present and the future…

The movie is based on the book of the same name by Cecelia Ahern. I read the book before I saw the movie and though I appreciated the sensitivity of the book, I enjoyed the movie much, much more. Hillary Swank is lovely as Holly and Gerard Butler makes an excellent Gerry. I am also a fan of movies that cast actors that I got to like from previous projects. Friends’ Phoebe Lisa Kudrow plays one of Holly’s best friends and Buffy’s Spike James Marsters plays Gerry’s best friend. Singer/actor Harry Connick Jr., plays the bartender.

Last but not least, Grey’s Anatomy’s Denny Duquette and Watchmen’s The Comedian Jeffrey Dean Morgan has a small but important role.

The only thing I didn’t like about the movie was Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s part. Developments concerning his character just feels rushed. And after watching a story that makes us love Gerry, it feels like you are betraying him. Other than this, director/co-writer Richard LaGravenese has done a decent job.

You should take this lovely journey with Holly. It is romantic, funny and emotional.

P.S. I love this movie and everything about Gerard Butler.

P.S. I love you starring Gerard Butler and Hillary Swank.

Gerry has been around the block and now he is ready for the right girl. He sings in a rock band, he is Irish and he is a romantic. So it is an unrealistic movie. So what? Enjoy your romance.

    unrealistic. I don’t think so. My boyfriend is just like him except singing in a rock band and being irish but his soul belongs to them ahaha. Anyway this movie stole my top number one, pretty woman 😀 I think the best part of the movie was the sweet fight in the very first beginning 🙂 A perfect movie if you wanna laugh and share some tears at the same time 🙂

    I am so glad you have met your “Gerry”. Fingers crossed he will live happily ever after with you. But I am finding it a little far-fetched that Gerry looks like Gerard Butler and her first attempt to flirt happens with a guy who “looks like” Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

    Still, wonderful movie. Love it to bits. And Kudos to Gerard Butler- his vocals for Mustang Sally is the best I’ve ever heard. : )

    I think sexy ppl have sexy voices hah 😀

  4. zoey says:

    Ha ha ha…Shit, with that statement, it is like you are saying I can never be sexy. Thanks, Arzu. Really… : ) It’s not my fault if “I can’t sing without making the dogs bark”…

  5. Arzu says:

    don’t tell anyone but my voice isn’t that good either 😀

    Good to know 🙂 So maybe we can say hunky actors have sexy voices and leave it that 😉

    Hi dear,
    Actually I don’t agree with you the only thing you didn’t like about the movie; Jeffrey Dean Morgan. I think hillary did her best in that situation, as I told you before. You know the idiom “One doesn’t die with the dead” 🙂
    By the way I put your blog address on my blogroll 😉

    Perla, dear-I love Jeffrey Dean Morgan. In fact my Gerard Butler addiction started much later. I used to say Jeffrey when people asked who was more handsome. Now, of course I say Gerard and can’t decide when I see Jeffrey. ; ) But I told you before. Many girls tend to take too much time to get over guys that are not worth it. But Gerry was so great…I don’t think I’d have judged Holly even if she didn’t have sex with a hunk like Jeffrey. Of course,I would normally jump on him on sight. : ) But hey, she doesn’t have to find love right away. : )

  9. Thanks for comment on my Enchanted review. I wanted to come and see what your blog was about and I came across this review and had to comment.

    Coming from the woman’s point of view, did you really buy into Hillary’s portrayal? I thought she came off as not as depressed nor as ready to move on as the movie would want you to believe. I don’t like Hillary Swank as a Rom-Com actress because I don’t think she has “leading lady” potential, she does better when she’s playing a man’s role.

    Comments?

    I didn’t think it was her fault while I was watching the movie. I thought the script “rushed” her.I mean we are given a story of this amazing love and then she hops into bed with the first hunk she meets in a trip to Gerry’s hometown? That killed the romantic buzz for me…
    However, I didn’t see her in any other rom-coms. Have you? She is not pretty or cute in the traditional sense but I bought her constantly-freaked Holly portrait. But I have to admit, I was thinking I’d have cast Jennifer Garner instead. Who would be your choice?
