Lara Jean has written love letters to all five of the boys she’s loved in her past—but the letters were never meant to be sent. When her sister finds them and secretly mails them to each boy, shy Lara Jean’s life is turned upside down. Through a series of events, she ends up making a deal with a former crush to have a pretend relationship that benefits them both. While this movie is rated TV-14 in the USA, many preteens are watching it on their own and with parents.
Our Take on To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before
While the premise of To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is innocent, it’s rated TV-14 for a reason. There is mild language, scenes with alcohol, plenty of talk and references to sex and body parts, and scenes with kissing. That said, the movie does a good job of addressing online bullying, and there are positive messages. For example, Lara Jean makes a no-kissing rule for her pretend boyfriend, and he respects her rule. While we recognize that it has some positive themes, we think the show is too mature for preteens.
