The highly anticipated movie “To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You” hits Netflix, the film will melt your heart as the love story continues and a new love triangle forms.

Following the first hit film, “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before,” the second romantic comedy, based on books by Jenny Han, speaks on real-life important subjects such as consent and breakups. As seen in the first movie, Lara Jean Covey, played by Lana Condor, writes letters to her crushes with no intention of sending them out until her younger sister Kitty, played by Anna Cathcart, takes initiative and mails them out. Long story short, Lara and Peter Kavinsky, played by Noah Centineo, take on the act of being a pretend couple to make Peter’s ex-girlfriend jealous, eventually leading to them forming real feelings for each other.

After radiating the ideal romance in the first film, the second film, released on Feb. 12, provides a fairy tale too good to be true as one of the recipients of the love letters, John Ambrose Mclaren, coincidentally happens to volunteer at a senior living home with Lara. Building insecurity in her first relationship, Lara struggles to confront her emotions between Peter and John. 

Despite being a little too predictable, it was enjoyable to see the little corny romantic gestures Peter did to express his love for Lara. Although she is living the dream almost every girl desires, she faces hardships as well and turns to a mentor or even a close friend for advice. Like every movie, the film sends a variety of important messages, one is staying true to yourself.  

Characters such as Gen played by Emilija Baranac, who also plays Peter’s ex-girlfriend, portrays a slightly bigger role than in the last film. Previously we saw her as the villain, whereas now we get to see the more vulnerable side of why she puts up the “bully” act. This greatly impacts how the storyline will most likely play out and heighten the characters’ relationships for better or worse.  

In all, “TATB:P.S.ISLY” puts up a very cute representation of what a high school couple might look like. The lighthearted scenes surely exemplify comedic roles that enhance the audience’s attention. This sequel definitely met my expectations but only made my expectations for the next to be even higher. 

Everything about this film creates a fluttery feeling, almost as if butterflies were invading your stomach. Altogether, “TATB:P.S.ISLY” is definitely a must-watch on Netflix for those who enjoy watching romantic or comedic genres. In the end, you will definitely be anxious to see what happens next, as Lara and Peter head off to college in the third film.
