One of the most gifted dramatic actors working in movies today, Swank is stunningly ill suited for romantic comedy (or this one, anyway).

I saw an advance screening of P.S. I love you on Tuesday December 11, 2007. I desided to go and see it because it looked like something that might intrest me since I lost my father at a young age. I...

Great combination of laughs and tears

I heard this film had some funny moments, but wondered how funny a movie with a sad premise (husband dies and leaves wife letters to help her get on with her life) could be. I figured it would be...

More than a chick flick.

First of all let me say I hate chick-flicks. Having said that I wouldn't call this a chick-flick even though the name and the marketing didn't really lead one to believe otherwise. Hillary Swank...

This movie sucked any and every tear my eyes can produce right out. I could NOT STOP crying!! It was the most beautiful love story ever. The way she loved him, then was just left alone. After he...
