I know, I know...you're asking, "How can he consider himself a real man?" It's true though. Even when I know who is going to end up with who, unless it's really bad acting (or it's about teeny-boppers going to a prom that looks more elaborate and costly than a wedding), I love 'em.
That being said, P.S. I Love You looks rights up my ally. The film is based on the book of the same title and the premise is something like this: Hillary Swank's character's husband (played by Gerard Butler) dies young of a disease. After he has gone, she receives messages from him in various unpredictable formats. These messages are designed to get her to move on without him and enjoy the rest of her life. I know what you're thinking: visions of Patrick Swayze's spirit sensually assisting Demi Moore making pottery from the other side running through your head a la Ghost. Well banish all thoughts of the supernatural from your mind. P.S. I Love You requires no visit from the Ghostbusters.
