    Good start, Good performances but as the reviews say on here, it never leads anywhere and lots of questions are never answered; first and formost, why does this guy look and act like the main character's dead boyfriend????

    How did they rope Linney, Grace, Harden, and Byrne into this misbegotten mess? Linney and Grace outshone their material (though some of their conversations were well-written), but the movie never explains why his character had the same name, face, and talent as her dead lover. Also, her character's behavior when deciding to interview him and in the interview were too unbelievable How did they rope Linney, Grace, Harden, and Byrne into this misbegotten mess?

Also, her character's behavior when deciding to interview him and in the interview were too unbelievable even for a work of fiction. It's a wonder Columbia U. hasn't sued. This is the type of movie in which you wonder if anyone really watched the finished product before it was realeased, and if they did watch it they were either smoking crack or knew you can put anything out and someone will go see it.

    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.

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). Expand

    The film is based on the novel by Helen Schulman, who co-wrote the script with Kidd, and it suffers from the same hobbling that bedevils so many literary adaptations; namely, that what strikes a reader as a conceit of some delicacy will strike a moviegoer as clunking whimsy.

    Laura Linney’s beautiful performance is most of the story in p.s.
