P.S. I Love You IS quite possibly the most depressing love story in recent memory. However, I love that it shows what could really happen in the life of a person who's love has passed away. People really do lock themselves up in their crappy apartments and wallow in self-pity, not knowing how to live life without the one person they thought they'd be living with. I love the awkward ways she tries to move on and the sucesses and failures she faces. I think it's a beautiful thing that the movie takes turns that are uncomfortable and that everything doesn't end up all pretty wrapped with a shiny ribbon at the end. Real life doesn't happen that way.

What I did NOT love was her little sister. What the....? Is this not the most annoying person on the planet? Seriously, I'd rather have seen Fran Drescher in this role.

While this movie does indeed have a sad story line, I think that there are definitely important takeaways that come from it. The enduring nature of the human spirit and the ability to overcome adversity stick out as important lessons. While Swank's character does indeed contend with a very difficult situation, she ultimately is able to pick herself up and pursue her dreams. The loving support of her family, friends, and her late husband (through his thoughtful gesture) are what enables her to overcome …
