    Even the always radiant Linney can't save this misbegotten film.
  2. What's disheartening is that an actress as fine as Ms. Linney has to endure the indignity of such excremental nonsense.

    In one of the deleted scenes, we can see that Louise(Laura Linney) has no input when it comes to who the selection committee admits into their art program. She stays out of the room. What's in the movie works better because the happy ending makes us a little uncomfortable. "P.S." is at its best when Louise and F. Scott(Topher Grace) are feeling each out. There's also a pretty hillarious scene that involves Linney with Gabriel Byrne(playing her ex) because his confession, albeit heartfelt and sincere, is nonetheless, self-indulgent and smarmy. But "P.S." loses its steam when it turns into a high school drama between Louise and her best friend Missy(Marcia Gay Harden). Full Review »
