PS, I LOVE U the book vs the movie..


Book Description (sorry this is a copy paste description, too lazy to write myself)

′Remember wonderful memories, but don′t be afraid to make some more.′

Holly and Gerry had the perfect life. Happily married, living in Dublin close to their friends and family, and with a brilliant social life, they had the world at their feet. Or so they thought. When Gerry dies, Holly is devastated. On the eve of her 30th birthday, the man who was her lover, her best friend, her rock, has left her. But Gerry promised he′d always be there for Holly. And he is: his last bequest to her is The List, a bundle of notes which form a monthly mission for Holly to get her life back on track.

As the notes are gradually opened, and as the year unfolds, Holly is both cheered up and challenged. The man who knows Holly better than anyone sets out to teach her that life goes on. With some help from her friends, and her noisy and loving family, Holly finds herself laughing, crying, singing, dancing - and being braver than ever before. Life is for living, she realises - but it always helps if there′s an angel watching over you.

i love the definitely love the book better...i cried when i read it..it was definitely heart wrenching. personnaly, i've experiences the loss of a loved one once & i could relate...i mean it's nothing like the book of course but the feeling of u know won't be able to see that person ever again is just too much to take...

vs
when i bought the DVD version of the same title adapted from the book... & decided to watch it last nite...
i was yawning all the way thru... it was nothing like the book!!!
the castings ware such a disappointment, Hillary Swank just has so much to learn when it comes to playing a romantic role & so does Gerard Butler..saw him play the tough macho in the film- 300...just not cute enough to take up the Gerry role... Lisa Kudrow was just so not funny...
i was so looking forward to the part when Holly went to the travel agency to collect her tickets...& nothing happened!!! i just had to push the tissue box away...way out of my way...no use for them...on the other hand, at least i get to save one tissue box this month!

i guess i have yet to learn my lesson...once i've read the books, i should not bother watch the movie...& vice versa...;p
then again if u don't read & u love chic lit movie, this perhaps is ur movie...
