The first thing wrong with this film is they had people in their 30's playing high school students in the beginning of the film so when it transitions to the future they look like they never aged, at all. It's unbelievable. They could have gotten younger look-a-likes, or even attempted makeup of some kind. Also, the main character's mother doesn't look too much older than he does. While not implausible, it just seemed a bit off. The story itself is about a guy who's been in love with his next door neighbor forever. Going with the title of the film, he wrote a letter to the love of his life when he found out she broke up with her boyfriend and was about to give it to her but doesn't when he finds out they got back together. So, it's the future and he's still pining over her. He finds out she has a boyfriend so he falls back to his old pattern of being in love with her without telling her. The guy's best friend finds the letter and he memorized and uses it on a girl he likes, claiming he wrote it, to get the girl, and then he loses the letter so they try to find it before someone else does, especially the girl Tom (the friend) spoke it to. But the current boyfriend of the main girl finds it, and keeps it but then tells Henry (the main guy) that he has the letter but he, Henry, plays as if he was a player in High School, and that the letter was meaningless. Overall, the film's not bad if not overly predictable. Has some sweet spots, some mildly humorous parts, and typical of the genre. The composition was a bit annoying but didn't ruin the film. It's a movie that made me smile, at times, and that's always good because I'm the type of guy who doesn't smile often, so worth a watch. 6.8/10
