P.S. I Love You




Have you seen this movie? If not, you should. Keep a box of tissue close by and be prepared to laugh and cry at the same time. I watched this last night and started crying about ten minutes into the movie and didn't completely stop until the end. I could barely see by the time the movie ended, my eyes were so puffy. Yet, I haven't laughed as often during a movie since Jim Carrey's Me, Myself and Irene. Hilary Swank is an unbelievable actress in this movie. She is anyway but seems to portray a suffering person's span of emotions terrifically. Of course, Gerard Butler is more than just eye candy. I knew this yet was surprised at how easily he pulled off the part (don't want to give too much away) of Jerry. I was a bit disappointed by his cheesy Irish accent but could probably tolerate that for a good 200 years before it would start to wear on me. Harry Connick Jr., who is not one of my favorite whatever he calls himself, is funny and fresh. Rent this one soon!

We saw this in the theater for "date night" and both really liked it.

Btw-Gerard Butler is Irish, lol, so his accent is real! :)

For once, we agree on a movie!

Actually, he is mostly Scottish with a Scottish accent. I saw an interview where he said he put his Irish ancestors to shame with his horrible Irish accent and has been practicing to make it better. Either way, I think he is adorable. LOL!

My husband actually announced that we needed to put this movie in our cache (Netflix) because he thought it would be a good date night movie. We have very informal date nights -- they basically happen at random or when I've fished out one of three fondue pots given to my mother when she got married in the 70's (apparently fondue pots were the greatest wedding gifts of the time).

I just found your site and really have enjoyed your posts. You have such a great writing style!

Blessings to you!

Thank you so much for stopping by Lacy!

This is a great date night movie. Speaking of fondue, I remember my mom pulling hers out when we were kids. We would do one with sauces and one for desserts. It was fun!
