  Are Romantic Comedies really making a comeback? On August 17 all of the social media was freaking out about the release of “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before” on Netflix. Netflix released the movie adaptation of the book, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, written by Jenny Han. The movie adaptation of the book did very well. Many fans of the book were worried about there being a movie adaptation but after they saw the movie they were very pleased. The director Susan Johnson did a great job of converting the book into a movie. Just like the book the movie focuses on the love story of  Lara Jean (Lana Candor) and Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo).

Lara Jean’s love letters get sent out to the five boys she has ever loved. The boys being Peter, Lucas (Trezzo Mahoro), John (Burchett Jordan), Kenny (Edward Kevin), and Josh (Israel Broussard). Josh who also happens to be her sister, Margot’s (Janel Parrish) boyfriend, and next door neighbor, also receives the love letter Lara Jean wrote. So instead of talking about the letter with Josh, she pretends to date, Peter. Peter suggests that they pretend to date to get his ex, Genevieve (Emilija Baranac), back and to help Lara Jean convince Josh that she no longer has feelings for him. So Lara Jean agrees, but she sets up rules in the fake relationship. They set the rules because Lara Jean wants there to be a contract so things can be very clear. While in the fake relationship they become really good friends because of all the time they spend together. They watch movies together and hang out.  

             At first Lara Jean and Peter only hung out so their classmates won’t be suspicious of their fake relationship. But while they hung out they realized that they had some things in common and enjoyed each other’s company. Towards the end of the movie when they went on the ski trip that’s when things took a good turn for the storyline. Which caused the viewers to get the ending they hoped for. Overall the movie adaption was great and the teenage and younger adult audience enjoyed the movie.
