Goofs

When Kitty and Lara Jean are on the couch watching Golden Girls reruns, Kitty says that her other sister is "doing crack," which, according to her, is how Scottish people say 'fun.' The term is actually Irish, not Scottish. "What's the craic?" "That's some good craic." See more »

Quotes

Lara Jean: The forbidden kiss. We knew that it was wrong, that he was betrothed to my sister. But if this wasn't what he wanted, then why did he come to the field of desire? It was fated that we should meet like this

Good for all ages
23 August 2018 | by myfam-86505See all my reviews

Oldsters (like me) are decades removed from this movie's target YA audience but, if you liked the teenage angst movies of John Hughes ("Sixteen Candles," "Pretty in Pink," "Some Kind of Wonderful") you can truly enjoy this modern-day, politically corrected dip into that genre. ("Sixteen Candles" actually gets a shout-out in the flick.)

It takes some suspension of disbelief (some relaxation of the critical mindset that comes with age) but no more than others of its type. ("Lady Bird" being the exception -- a teen angst movie that overlaid the Hughes blueprint with grit and realism.)

The biggest obstacle is accepting the obviously older actors playing teens, especially the 30-something actress playing the 18-year-old sister. (Molly Ringwald was 16 when she played a 16-year-old.) If that doesn't bother you, then go for it. (Mostly it's 20-somethings in the late-teen roles, according to birthdates on IMBD.)
