The To All The Boys I've Loved Before series is one of my favorite movie franchises ever. I am a sucker for a classic rom com, and this is no exception. I think the reason I love these movies so much is because I relate a lot to Laura Jean. I am kinda awkward and shy like Laura Jean; I love reading about love, but am sort of scared of it. I've never seen a character I relate to so much on screen, so it made me really love and appreciate these movies.
I have been waiting for the 3rd and final movie for over a year, and I was so excited when it finally came out! This movie was super cute, and fit the theme of the past movies.
It starts out with Laura Jean and Peter in their senior year waiting to hear back from the colleges they applied to. Peter got into Stanford to play lacrosse, and of course he wanted Laura Jean to go with him. The only problem is that Laura jean hasn't heard back yet.
Laura Jean ends up getting denied from Stanford, but accidentially told Peter that she got in. Peter was so excited for her and that they would be together, that she couldn't let him down.
For a while Laura Jean was living a lie that she was going to Stanford, but then she had to tell Peter when she went to New York with him. He actually took the news well, since she got into Berkely which is only an hour away so they could still see each other on weekends; and after her first year she would transfer to Stanford to be with Peter.
During their trip to New York, Laura Jean realizes she really likes the city and wants to go school there, the only problem is it's 3000 miles from Peter.
Laura Jean later confesses that she's going to NYU, and Peter doesn't take the news very well. He then becomes very distant and then breaks up with Laura Jean on prom night. Laura Jean is left heart broken and unsure of her self and her decision.
Chris and LJ's sisters rally around her and show her support through the whole thing, and reassure her that she's making the right decsion for her. At her dad's wedding, Peter suprises Laura Jean and says that he's sorry for being so selfish and not supporting her decision to go to NYU. They are then back together and going to Stanford and NYU in the fall, still together.
Overall, I absolutely loved the movie. The only part I didn't like was that Peter broke up with her just becuase she was following her heart and dreams to go to New York. He wasn't very supportive of her just becuase she made up her own mind, and that was different from his plan.
The movie had some fantastic scenes, like visiting Korea and finding the locket her mom put on the bridge; her dad finding happiness and getting married; and Laura Jean putting herself first when deciding where to go for college.
I 10/10 reccomend the movie, it was everything I had hoped for!
