Movie Review: P.S. I Love You

I realize that being a travel or work widow is different from being an actual widow, and I pray I don’t offend anyone by referring to myself as such. When Aron is out of town I am always praying that he return safely to us. When he’s at work all day, just a few minutes from our home, I am praying that he comes home in one piece. Every now and then I allow myself to consider what life would be like if we lost him. It’s a dark place.

I’d heard about P.S. I Love You (based on the book by Cecelia Ahern), but didn’t know what it was about. I’m glad I didn’t know, so I’m not going to tell YOU, either (even though I've already hinted at it). I hope you haven’t heard much about it and run to the Red Box or get on or and order it, based purely on my stunningly sly yet half-assed review.

The movie stars Hilary Swank, Gerard Butler, Lisa Kudrow, Harry Connick, Jr., Gina Gershon, Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Denny from Gray’s Anatomy!!! … Aron became suspect about the 10th time I sighed “Denny Duchette!”) and Kathy Bates.

Bottom line: I give this movie 8 ½ (I took a bite out of one to get this rating) Dove chocolate hearts out of 10.
