To All The Boys: Always and Forever reminds you that true love can withstand any obstacle.
If you have watched the other 2 films (or read the novel series by Jenny Han), you know that Lara Jean Covey (Lana Condor) and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo) are madly in love. In their senior year of high school, they have plans on attending the same college so that they can be together but when Lara Jean doesn’t get into the same college as Peter, their plans change. Even more so when Lara Jean falls in love with NYU while on a class trip to New York. Will she make that move so far away from her family and Peter? If she does, can their relationship go the distance?
Being a fan of the first 2 films (more specifically the first one), I could not wait to watch To All The Boys: Always and Forever. I mean, their love story is so cute and I wanted more which makes me a little sad that this is the final film in the series. But alas, all good things must come to an end. In addition to giving us some sort of closure about Lara Jean and Peter, they also do so for some other relationships in the movie but I won’t say more as to not spoil it.
I enjoyed it. There was enough of the cheesy romance stuff to make the younger version of me happy but it also gave the older version of me some relief. Wondering why I used the word “relief”? Because the film encourages young adults to not compromise their dreams for someone they love. It was a cute film that gives you just enough closure to allow you to give them whatever happy ending you see fit.
Is this good for the kiddos?
I think it is fine for the mature teens in your family as there are some sexual references. While you do not see anything too inappropriate, there was a scene where 2 characters started to remove each other’s clothing as if it were about to happen, but they stopped before you see anything. While 2 characters do in fact sleep with each other, you do not see the lead up to it, but you do see them waking up to each other in bed so it is implied that they went all the way.
To All The Boys: Always and Forever is now streaming on Netflix.
Oh, and if you haven’t already watched the previous 2 films, I suggest you do that before watching this film.
