We just can’t get enough of it TBH. And even though there are rumours going around that a sequel is in the works, we’re just not sure how we’re going to cope in the meantime without our Lara Jean and Peter fix.
So, we thought we’d put together a list of movies to watch if you loved To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before that have a similar theme, a bit of teen angst and a feel-good factor to them.
5 Movies To Watch If You Loved To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
13 Going On 30
The whole way through TATBILB all we could think about was that Peter (aka Noah Continuo) gave us serious Mark Ruffalo vibes. Seriously, he even sounds like him. Weird! And it turns out that Noah is actually a huge fan of 13 Going On 30 too!
13 Going On 30 tackles our obsession with wanting to be older when we’re teens, and shows that you should always be careful what you wish for. It also teaches us that sometimes “the one” is right in front of you. The soundtrack is also full of banging 80s tunes!
The Perks Of Being A Wallflower
Socially awkward teen Charlie is a wallflower, always watching life from the sidelines (a bit like Lara Jean) until two charismatic students come along and show him that there’s more to life than just watching it go by. Free-spirited Sam and her stepbrother Patrick help Charlie discover the joys of friendship, first love, music and more. However, it’s not all plain-sailing for Charlie as he still has some serious issues to deal with. Like TATBILB, The Perks Of Being A Wallflower was based on of a super popular YA novel.
Everyone deserves a great love story, but for 17-year-old Simon Spier, it’s a little more complicated. He hasn’t told his family or friends that he’s gay, and he doesn’t know the identity of the anonymous classmate that he’s fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Love, Simon is an emotional rollercoaster; teaching us the value of friendship, family, and following your heart.
If you loved To All The Boys I Loved Before, you really need to watch Sixteen Candles – the movie that is mentioned in the movie and even makes it into “the contract” between Lara Jean and Peter.
With the occasion all but overshadowed by her sister’s upcoming wedding, angst-ridden Samantha faces her 16th birthday with typical adolescent dread. Samantha pines for studly older boy Jake, but worries that she won’t be enough for him. Meanwhile, Samantha must constantly rebuff the affections of nerdy Ted , the only boy in the school, unfortunately, who seems to take an interest in her.
If fake relationships are your thing, you need to watch Easy A. Olive tells a lie to get out of camping with her friends only for it to do the rounds at school. And suddenly Olive is notorious, but for all the wrong reasons. Just how far will she take this lie? If you’re looking for something to laugh your head off to, Easy A is the one of you.
Of course you could just watch To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before again, and again and again…not that we’re going to do that or anything…!
