Not gonna lie: I’ve missed Lara Jean and Peter. I was ready for the sequel as soon as I finished watching To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before. Luckily we knew a sequel was coming pretty darn quickly. We all just had to wait six months for it.
Lara Jean (Lana Condor) is adjusting to being a girlfriend for the first time, and feeling all kinds of insecure because her boyfriend Peter (Noah Centineo) has a lot more dating experience than she does. There’s also Gen (Emilija Baranac), Peter’s ex, who is ready to throw a wrench in their romance.
And if things weren’t complicated enough, John Ambrose McClaren (Jordan Fisher), one of her childhood crushes, ends up volunteering at the same senior center as Lara Jean. Old feelings for John Ambrose combine with Lara Jean’s insecurities to wreak havoc on her relationship with Peter.
If Lara Jean and Peter had settled into a “happily ever after” we wouldn’t have a movie. Of course we knew there would be some bumps in their relationship. The bumps they face, however, are more than a little annoying. The frustration of a problem that could be solved by having an adult conversation is tangible. Then you remember they’re all teenagers and everything is pretty darn realistic.
Nothing is P.S. I Still Love You is going to come as a surprise. It’s pretty predictable all the way through. That doesn’t make it any less enjoyable. Not as good as it’s predecessor, but checking in with Lara Jean and Peter one more time is still a great way to spend an evening.
To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You is streaming now on Netflix.
