One of the changes that “To All the Boys” has had in its second part was the recast of John Ambrose with Jordan Fisher now playing that part. Fisher as John Ambrose was very charming in the movie and was perfect for this romantic movie, just like Noah Centineo is perfect as Peter.
And the chemistry between Lara Jean Covey and Peter Kavinsky was as strong as in the first movie. When John returns to Lara’s life in this movie, Lara will have to decide if she stays with Peter or if she begins a relationship with John. Thus dividing the fans between team Peter or team John Ambrose.
After a romantic start in the movie with Lara and Peter dating and having fun, a drama begins. Lara Jean goes enthusiastically to one of her boyfriend’s lacrosse matches, but before the game starts, Chris shows her a picture of Peter and Gen being too close. Lara Jean confronts Peter, who tries to explain that it was only because her parents are divorcing and he understands how that feels.
Lara is not willing to let it go and she thinks he always defends her, even when she recorded and posted the video of them in the jacuzzi. When that issue comes up for discussion Lara Jean discovers that things did not happen as she thought and that Peter did not wait for her that night but Gen. With a broken heart, Lara Jean asks Peter to leave and ends their relationship.
Lara still loves Peter so she is definitely open to returning with him, but needs some time to figure out what her heart wants, but things will get complicated for her decision when charming Jonh Ambrose tries to win her heart.
The sequel to “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before” was released on Wednesday, February 12, 2020, two days before Valentine’s Day, by Netflix.
I give the movie a 3.5/5
