P.S. I Love You

I don't normally advertise movies, because I rarely feel that strongly about them, but I feel compelled this time around. We actually went to go see it, thinking it would be a cute, but very corny movie. Perhaps because I went into it thinking that it was going to be just okay, I was absolutely blown away by the power of this love story.

It is common for me to cry during movies (you know, a few glistening tears running down my cheeks), but very rare for me to sob during movies (you know, Oprah calls it the ugly cry). In fact, I can count the number of times on three fingers that I have ever had to stiffle my sobs in a movie theatre. Being a young newlywed and having met my husband at a really young age...this movie just struck a powerful cord with me about love and loss and moving on. But what I think is so powerful about this movie is that it transcends age groups, marital statuses, and even gender (it wasn't just a chick flick). I think everyone can empathize with loss (even, if not, to that degree) and can understand the questions that come along with any type of tragedy. The big theme I took from this movie is that ever cliche line: it is better to have loved and lost than to never have loved at all.

Interesting...a friend of mine suggested seeing it yesterday and I talked her into shopping instead because I thought it looked corny. Thanks for the review!

I am glad that you found my blog by googling the pic! I don't normally put up things about movies I have seen either, but I really loved this one....like I said in my blog, I cried from laughing and cried from being emotionally torn. I didn't expect it to be all that great either, but halfway through the movie I knew it was one I will definitely buy!

Huh . . . that's interesting. After seeing the preview, I was NOT impressed, but, who knows? I could be wrong.

I know what you mean though about movies that resonate to your core. I live for movies like that.
