There was movies galore this weekend, but last night's (PS, I Love You) was my favorite, the story of Gerry and Holly, and one I've seen so many times. Here's why:
Number 10: There's a shot of Jeffrey Dean Morgan from the back and he's naked! Remember, we're going from 10 to 1 - stay with me :)
Number 9: A romance, but with a twist - 'Girl meets boy, girl loses boy, girl learns to adapt, and thrive, and love again - mostly herself''.
Number 8: Fabulous girlfriends who are quirky and quick to remind the heroine of both her weaknesses and her strengths.
Number 7: A fantastic tagline - "Sometimes there's only one thing left to say."
Number 6: A love interest (Harry Connick Jr.) who ends up being a really good friend because sometimes love interests don't pan out.
Number 5: Gerry's reminder to Holly to remember the girl she was and the woman she wanted to be.
Number 4: Amazing lines such as Harry Connick Jr's "I want to be someone's Gerry." - breaks my heart every time. And best friend Sharon's "You gotta be rich to be insane, Hol. Losing your mind is not a luxury for the middle class."
Number 3: The scene where young Holly is enthusiastic about being creative. Just creative - "All I know is, if you don't figure out this something, you'll just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if its a work of art or a taco, or a pair of socks! Just create something... new, and there it is, and its you, out in the world, out side of you and you can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and you know a little more about... you. A little bit more than anyone else does... Does that make any sense at all?" Um, yeah!
Number 2: The knowledge that those we love, those who've passed, are with us still. In our hearts. In our memories. And if you're very quiet and open, they will speak to you and guide you in this world (at least, I believe).
Number 1: Not necessarily the best reason to love this film, all of the above reasons could have been number 1, but considering I'm a huge Gerard Butler fan - yep, number one reason I love "PS, I Love You" is Gerard Butler. *sigh*
Have you seen the movie, People of Blogland? How about read the book by Cecelia Ahern? Did you know she was co-creator for the TV series Samantha Who, starring Christina Applegate (I didn't know that)?
