As of Friday, Feb.12, 2021, the third sequel in the film series To All the Boys, was released on Netflix. The series began with To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before in the fall of 2018, starring Lana Condor as Lara Jean and Noah Centineo as Peter Kavinsky. The story followed the teens as they navigated through love letters, fake relationships, accidental love and more. As of Feb. 2020, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before: P.S. I Still Love You was released, and fans grew excited as another character was added to the mix: John Ambrose played by the beloved Jordan Fisher. While Fisher did not make a comeback in the 2021 film, which upset some, I thoroughly enjoyed To All the Boys: Always and Forever and thought it was the best movie of the series.
The young couple depended on acceptances to Stanford to determine their future. Peter and Lara had their hearts set on attending college together in order to ensure the safety of their relationship. Lara then discovers that her acceptance was declined. She fails to tell Peter immediately which causes some hurt feelings and confusion. Another school Lara had applied to was NYU and though she claimed that she would never attend, she had a change of heart. Lara and Peter’s relationship was a little bit rocky throughout all of these changes, but ultimately they ended up in a happy relationship, even though they were bound to be 2,936 miles away.
One of my favorite parts about this film is the soundtrack. It features two songs by Ashe, “Real Love” and “The Same”. Ashe’s song “Moral of the Story” had been featured in the last film, so it was exciting for me to catch more of her music in this one.
Overall this film was delightful, and I thoroughly enjoyed it regardless of the occasional cheesy scenes. It is a nice film to watch with your friends as it is entertaining and emits that classic rom-com energy.
