Movie ~ P.S. I Love You

From ~ A grieving young widow discovers her late husband has left her a list of tasks revealed in 10 messages delivered anonymously, intended to ease her out of grief and transition her to a new life.

I read and enjoyed the book last January so was curious to see how it would translate to a movie. The premise was the same but the movie took strayed way way far away from the book.

It didn't get very good reviews so I didn't go in with high hopes. But it wasn't as bad as I had expected. I'm not huge fan of Hilary Swank and this movie didn't endear me to her . And it was a hoot seeing Lisa Kudrow and Gina Gershon trying to pass themselves off at 30ish. Hello! They are my age (45!).

A couple times during the movie I heard someone to my left sobbing. But there's a happy ending.

I did see the ad for this movie and thought it was a mushy one - but I do enjoy the books more. May look into the book first before I check it out - take care and Merry Christmas. :))))

I loved this book. LOVED IT.
I can't wait to see how they made it into a movie as well...

I thought the book was really good. I'm not a big fan of Hilary Swank either. I'll wait for this to come out on video.
