Netflix: ‘P.S. I Still Love’…this Series

by Mari Pizzini– Love is in the air, and Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky are back in the new Netflix Original To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before: P.S. I Still Love You.

The new movie debuted on the streaming service February 12. I don’t think I was the only one who had its release date marked on my calendar, either.

The original To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before basically took over Netflix in 2018. It was the type of cringy but loveable teenage rom-com that many people love.

After that, P.S. I Still Love You was set for big things…and it did not disappoint.

Viewers were left on a cliffhanger. John Ambrose McClaren returned Lara Jean’s love letter while her boyfriend, Peter (who also received a love letter), and neighbor, Josh Sanderson (yet a third love letter receiver), were out of the frame. 

Peter seemed perfect for Lara Jean, and their first “real” date started out the new movie. Honestly, I was wondering who could even compete with him. Well, John Ambrose finally made his grand appearance and it’s clear that he’s there to win Lara Jean’s heart, too.

To be fair, John Ambrose doesn’t know she’s dating his former sixth grade best friend. He still thinks Peter and Gen are dating, or at least talking. So, the letter he sent in response to hers was totally innocent even if it did confuse her emotions.

The movie continues to follow these three former best friends through croquet matches, treehouse hideouts, and a starry ball. We even meet a lovely older lady, Stormy, who acts as Lara Jean’s fairy godmother of sorts.

It’s up to you to watch the movie to see just who Lara Jean ends up with. Will it be Peter? Or will it be John Ambrose? P.S….you’ll just have to watch to find out.

Overall, I give P.S. I Still Love You 4 out of 5 love letters.
