As you might already know, To All the Boys: P.S. I Still Love You recently came out on Netflix. I thought I’d never say this, but, I’m officially team John Ambrose and if you’re not, hopefully I can sway your opinion.
Peter Kavinsky and Lara Jean are complete opposites! Lara Jean is a very poetic person. She enjoys reading romance novels and is wise beyond her age. Peter, on the other hand, is a popular jock who is a little too competitive. Peter “writes” Lara Jean a poem that we discover is Edgar Allan Poe’s Annabell Lee.
Peter and Lara fight so much during the movie! That’s not to say that couples can’t fight but Lara Jean doesn’t stick up for herself enough! Peter is extremely competitive with John and can be rude. In the treehouse when Lara, John, Peter, Gen, Trevor, and Christine dig up their time capsule, Peter rudely commented to John: “Remember when you had that stutter? No I just noticed you don’t have it anymore…” John graciously takes this as a compliment and thanks Peter in turn.
John is perfect! He’s charming, witty, and intelligent.. He’s amazing at the piano. He’s had a crush on her since the 6th grade… And he had everyone called him John Ambrose just because that’s what Lara Jean called him and he “thought it was cool” that they shared something in common.
Lara thought about John, even if she didn’t want to. She says “I couldn’t stop replaying the conversation I had with John Ambrose in my head.” “I didn’t want to be thinking about what might have been if he’d gotten that letter in middle school instead of now, but I was.” She talks about overthinking everything she does with Peter because he’s done it before with Gen. She says “it’s just like the stuff I was telling you about, the overthinking, that doesn’t happen when I’m with John Ambrose.”
When John Ambrose sees that Lara’s upset he immediately takes her outside for some air. Later, even when he kissed Lara and she didn’t kiss him back, he was so understanding.
Everything considered, John Ambrose is a total heartthrob, try and convince me otherwise.
