Every thought I had while watching To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You [Spoilers]

  • Okay, but who actually needs a recap for this series? It’s not THAT complicated.
  • Kitty remains the best character, “Have you even showered?” This is the Kitty we want and deserve. #JusticeforKitty
  • John Corbett also remains the best actor to portray Dr. Covey.
  • This is clearly too nice of a restaurant for your average teenagers to be going to on a date.
  • Lara Jean not being able to keep her purse on her shoulder is super relatable.
  • Definitely thought they were watching a Youtube video–not chatting with Gogo.
  • I’m loving this sassy Kitty that wasn’t in the first movie. So much closer to book Kitty (but still not quite there unfortunately).
  • Oh man. That Korean food looks SO good.
  • There’s nothing wrong with not dating until college…HAVEN.
  • John Ambrose is the best.
  • Here’s hoping Gen gets more depth this movie.
  • Nope. Still just your basic mean girl.
  • How was Peter supposed to let Lara Jean know he was going to be late when he was literally practicing the whole time?
  • What carnival game gives out snow globes??? And if this means John Ambrose ISN’T going to give her a snow globe at the end, there will be blood.
  • Tree!!!
  • Wow. When I get old this is EXACTLY the kind of retirement community I’d like to live at.
  • I’m getting very anxious about Stormy spilling her Bloody Mary.
  • Classic Lara Jean being a complete spaz when John Ambrose shows up.
  • Does Lara Jean think she and John Ambrose would still be together or something if he’d gotten the letter back in middle school? Because that seems unlikely.
  • Two eggs seems a bit excessive for an egg wash for eight turnovers.
  • Jenny Han cameo.
  • These singing valentines would never actually happen at a real high school, right? Certainly not the high school I went to.
  • Okay, wait a second. It’s just dawning on me that it’s Valentine’s Day and Lara Jean is wearing short sleeves OUTSIDE. IN OREGON. No.
  • I’m glad Subway is still sponsoring these movies.
  • I like the angle of John Ambrose being Stormy’s great-nephew or whatever better than him being another volunteer.
  • All of the sets in this movie are amazingly beautiful.
  • This seems extremely awkward for John Ambrose. Lara Jean has left him alone for a really long time.
  • It is super weird for Lara Jean to just be sitting on the counter like that. Shoes on and everything.
  • Was Ross Butler a character in the last movie? Maybe I DID need that recap.
  • I feel like this scene in the car needs some music or something. It’s weirdly quiet.
  • John Ambrose continues to be perfect for Lara Jean in every way.
  • Who was in charge of setting up the Bingo stuff in the first place? Why are Lara Jean and John Ambrose responsible for draggin everything to the basement?
  • Oh man. Lara Jean is making it so awkward for when John Ambrose finally discovers that she’s dating Peter.
  • Okay. Now I’m imagining the teacher spending hours drawing a chalk octopus on the board.
  • Why didn’t Lara Jean and Peter show up to the time capsule thing together?
  • Chris. MVP.
  • Of course John Ambrose plays piano. Because he’s PERFECT.
  • Fakesgiving sounds great. I would LOVE to have Thanksgiving twice a year! (But I don’t remember this from the book?)
  • Get a bag for the Brussels sprouts, Lara Jean!
  • Lara Jean is being a little too dramatic right now re: Peter and Gen.
  • The picture of Slot Canyon on Lara Jean’s wall seems kind of random? I don’t feel like it really fits the rest of her decor.
  • I don’t totally remember from the book, but I feel like Lara Jean should be trying to get advice from Margot or something. She’s hardly been in this movie!
  • The music video-ish part in the hallway is kind of weird and doesn’t really fit with the rest of the movie.
  • I just feel on such a deep level that Lara Jean and Peter shouldn’t be together. Especially when compared to John Ambrose.
  • I’m glad that Gen did get a little more depth in this movie, but I still feel like the book helps their whole dynamic to make more sense.
  • Old people dancing is the best.
  • More product placement! It just would look so much less staged if SOME of the Bubly labels weren’t directly facing the camera.
  • I’m glad John Ambrose is drawing attention to it snowing so late in the year (he continues to be perfect).
  • GET OVER PETER, LARA JEAN.
  • Get out of here, Peter. This doesn’t happen in the book and now I’m mad that they’re making movie Peter more likable than book Peter.
  • Those construction people are there very early to take down that tree house.
  • Peter and Lara Jean floating into the air at the end…just why. Every once in a while this movie tries to get a shot that’s just a little too weird and doesn’t match the feel of the rest of the movie.

My concluding thoughts–despite their best efforts, I am still strongly on #TeamJohnAmbrose. Peter Kavinsky is better in the movie than he is in the books, and they took out some of the things that made John Ambrose especially perfect for Lara Jean, but it’s still not enough. At least they cut Lara Jean’s “Peter was there first” line.
