    11 Not-So-Humble Reasons Why "Always And Forever" Is The Best "To All The Boys" Movie

    "Woah, woah, woah", I wasn't ready for these feels!

    If you haven’t watched To All The Boys: Always And Forever, honestly what have you been doing?! Here are 11 moments from the movie where I may or may not have cried because of how cute they are.


    1. When LJ found the lock that her mother and father left in Seoul.

    At the beginning of the movie, LJ and her family take a trip to Seoul and search for the lock that Dr. Covey and his late wife left when they were young lovers. Lara Jean finds it (!!!) and later in the movie, she gives Peter a lock with their initials on it instead! How romantic!

    2. When Peter asked Lara Jean to prom.

    Peter asked LJ to prom in the same diner where they first talked about her love letter in in the first movie! How sweet is that?!

    3. The bowling date that LJ planned.

    This is such a pure moment between the two! Lara Jean quoted one of Peter’s favorite movies and Peter wore the socks that LJ brought him from Seoul. Who doesn’t love a pure LJ + PK moment? And when she says, “I choose you Peter Kavinsky,” in the car afterwards? Instant tears.

    4. When Dr. Covey proposed to Trina in her house.

    Thankfully Lara Jean was outside saying goodbye to Peter, because when he drove away Lara Jean noticed her father proposing to Trina across the street. What a sweet and beautiful proposal of love!


    5. Trevor’s ~promposal~ to Chris in NYC.

    Chris doesn’t like typical cheesy things, so Trevor cleverly had Lucas start a game of "Truth or Dare" and dared Chris to go to prom with Trevor. Where are all of these thoughtful, romantic boys in the real world?!

    6. When Peter told Lara Jean it wasn’t her fault that she didn’t get in to Stanford.

    When Lara Jean told Peter that she got rejected from Stanford, his response was, “Stop, are you okay?” and, “This is not your fault.” I'm screaming! To some this may seem like the bare minimum, but he didn't get mad like we all thought he would. Peter once again sets the bar unrealistically high!

    7. The moment that Lara Jean fell in love with New York City.

    After attending an NYU party, Lara Jean comes to realize that this was where she is meant to be after all. So special!


    8. When Lara Jean & Peter broke up after prom.

    Chris steps in to comfort LJ and tells her that she doesn’t have to change her life plans just for a boy. Although LJ is sad, Kitty comes and tells her that she chose not to tell Lara Jean about the NYU acceptance letter because she is "gonna miss her a 12." If their sisterly bond doesn’t make you want to cry I don’t know what will.

    9. Everything about Dr. Covey and Trina’s adorable backyard wedding.

    They chose to hold their wedding in their backyard and it couldn’t have been more on brand for them. The set up, the colors, the LOVE! It's such a cute moment seeing LJ’s dad so happy.

    10. Peter’s ode to LJ and their “meet-cute” after the wedding.

    Peter writes, “You should do all the things you want to do, I never want to be the guy holding you back." To put icing on the cake, he adds: “If we’re gonna be together forever, then four years of college isn’t such a big deal.” Then he played LJ "their song”. CUE THE TEARS!!!

    11. All of the references to the other TATBILB movies.

    My favorite is the new and improved dating “contract” Lara Jean and Peter signed, referencing the original one they created when they began "fake dating" in the first movie. Do you understand why I ran out of tissues while watching this movie?

    To conclude: This is the best movie in the series.


    It's important for young people to see that they don’t have to go to the same college as their boo for a relationship to work! Peter Kavinsky continued to set the bar unbelievably high for modern day lovers, but I wouldn’t have it any other way! Thank you Jenny Han for such an amazing trilogy. To Peter Kavinsky and Lara Jean, ALWAYS AND FOREVER!
