When I first heard of the movie, I wanted to watch the movie cos I liked the book. But as the release date got nearer, I was getting apprehensive as I read many reviews that the show was blah and the leads were miscasted as they didn’t have any chemistry. But I went for it and I didn’t regret it at all. I won’t say they have no chemistry but I’ve seen better movie couples.
Anyway, Gerry (Gerard Butler) dies of a brain tumour, leaving his wife Holly (Hilary Swank) alone with pretty much nothing except grief. However, he carefully plans her life after his death by sending her letters to help her get back on track. Of course, everytime she opens her letter, the floodgates open. And it’s nice to see how they met at first – so sweet! And I really liked GV’s souvenir – tissues. How appropriate.
