TO ALL THE BOYS: ALWAYS AND FOREVER (2021 on Netflix) It takes a lot to get me excited about teenage romance, and this movie didn’t do it for me. Granted, it’s the third movie in a rom-com trilogy, but it didn’t make me want to see the first two movies. Our local critic allowed that it’s “pretty corney,” but then she went on to say, “But what did you expect?” I expected better. After all, she did give the movie 4 out of 5 stars. The two teen-lovers were adorable, and the ending almost won me over, but getting there was painful. The chemistry between Lana Condor and Noah Centineo has apparently grown over the years, at least according to our Lauren Seria. One of the critics on Rotten Tomatoes said that the movie is “kind of an eye-roller for anyone over 25,” and Gary and I are very much over 25. The first movie of the trilogy was an overnight YA classic, and I think my junior-high self would have loved it. Gary and I just wanted it to be over. GRADE C-
