I feel like if they took this film more seriously, I'd enjoy it a lot more. My main issue is what their comedy bits caused in the storyline. Right out of the gate, you see her depression show up. Then, her friends and mother show up and start treating her like shit right out of the gate.
It had been THREE weeks since her husband just died. Yet they criticize her for a great bit of comedy, but instead it makes me really dislike all those people. Then they just take her around to try and find her a new guy in that first year of losing him. It isn't exactly crazy to go a year after becoming a widow without hooking up.
I do really like the story concept though, and think it could make for a really good drama. They should dive deeper into if this letter plan causes the happiness he intends, or makes her wounds even deeper. Does this kind of think help, or hurt her progress out of darkness?
That would be cool, but I feel like we keep it square in the romantic comedy style too much by making playful jokes (some good, many bad). I do appreciate the twist towards the end though. It could have reeeeeally sucked had they not done that.
Meh watch, not very engaging, but at least there are some interesting moments sprinkled throughout.
Not so bad for a rom-com. Music was pretty good too.
