~ Spoiler Free Movie Review: “To All the Boys 3: Always and Forever” (Netflix 2021) ~

REVIEW

I was super excited for the third and final movie in the “To All the Boys” film franchise. I waited to watch it on Valentine’s Day with my boyfriend. Lana Condor and Noah Centineo have fabulous chemistry, and it truly feels like an end to an era. I didn’t go into this with high expectations. Frankly, I wasn’t expecting much plot; I was simply happy to watch the two leads go on adorable dates and just be sweet. I think viewers get a lot of cheery romantic feels because honestly, the movie doesn’t really have a big or real conflict. There were certain things that happened which confused me, but it wasn’t bad. I would say that there was some questionable editing and scene cuts, but I have come to expect this after enduring the quality of the first two films. Seriously though, the scene change to graduation was so abrupt and did not flow. However, I can ignore most of these little issues because I am so in love with the cast and main couple. Kitty was adorable in this, and I loved her in that sky blue suit. I wish we got to see John Ambrose, and some other characters from the previous two films, but I can live with the conclusion we received. It was pretty solid, and I think fans of the franchise will enjoy it a lot. Plus, the soundtrack is quite impressive. There were some older songs and K-pop, too. My co-worker told me that there’s a rumored spin-off which I would totally devour. It could be Kitty’s story or follow an older Peter and Lara Jean – both are fantastic ideas. All in all, I don’t really have much to say besides that I enjoyed “To All the Boys: Always and Forever.” It wasn’t a cinematic masterpiece, but it made me happy. LJ+PK=FOREVER, 4/5
