Holly Kennedy is beautiful, smart and married to the love of her life - a passionate, funny, and impetuous Irishman named Gerry. So when Gerry's life is taken by an illness, it takes the life out of Holly. The only one who can help her is the person who is no longer there. Nobody knows Holly better than Gerry.

Drama? Romantic Comedy? Who cares? This is the best film EVER!
I have never felt compelled to leave a comment about a film until i saw P.S. I Love You. The emotional journey of the story was engulfing and intense. The comical and dramatic aspects of the film were both nurtured and explored deeply. I've never cried and laughed at the same time.
I would absolutely recommend anyone to watch this film. In fact, after watching it with my mom I plan to watch it with my boyfriend!
Lastly, I would recommend that you watch the deleted scenes. The last one (showing the McCarthy couple - Gina Gershon and James Marsters) was truly touching, and I wish it hadn't been cut out of the film.
