Love is in the air as Netflix scores big with its To All The Boys I Loved Before sequel. With 2018’s first movie being one of the streaming giant’s most successful exports, it’s no surprise Netflix has continued to adapt Jenny Han’s book trilogy with To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You.
The Lana Condor-led movie drops tomorrow, meaning we’re just in time for Valentine’s Day to catch up with what Lara Jean’s up to next. As well as the return of Noah Centineo as love interest Peter, things are about to get a little complicated thanks to one of Lara Jean’s exes also rearing his head.
A teen love triangle in nothing new in Tinseltown, but it sounds like the addition of Jordan Fisher as John has done P.S. I Still Love You the world of good. The trailer hyped up trouble in paradise for Lara Jean and Peter, and the sequel doesn’t disappoint in that department.
Although Rotten Tomatoes doesn’t have an exact science when it comes to rating movies, the review aggregator site has given To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You and incredible 88% ‘Fresh’ score. We’re only going off the critic reviews, but safe to say, most of them are pretty glowing.
ScreenRant’s Molly Freeman writes, “To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You dives deeper into the complexities of young love, with just as much humor and sweetness – and even more charm”.
Mashable’s Angie Han adds, “What seemed at first like an unnecessary epilogue to Lara Jean and Peter’s story proves itself to be an essential next chapter in Lara Jean’s”.
Finally, DigitalSpy’s Gabriella Geisinger concludes, “To All the Boys: PS I Still Love You is exactly the kind of teenage rom-com escapism that we are all in need of – something that makes you feel good, but not to the detriment of a well-executed story”.
Basically, this is one to watch with your loved one (or on your lonesome) on February 14.
Susan Johnson — who helmed the original film — confirmed that a sequel was in development, but Netflix originally said at that point that a sequel was under discussion.
The streaming giant is never one for disclosing exact viewing figures, however, it did say in its third-quarter earnings report that more than 80 million people had watched at least one of its 2018 Summer of Love movies, which includes To All The Boys.
With the second chapter getting such a positive debut, it’s also great news for the upcoming To All the Boys: Always and Forever, Lara Jean. There’s no release date for the final movie, but we’ll be waiting to see what happens next to Lara Jean.
