They're the teen romance films we are all (secretly) obsessed with.

Whether or not you admit to loving this genre, there's good news.

Netflix has confirmed there will be a sequel to the To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before and we CAN'T WAIT.

If you haven't seen the first movie – GO and watch it.

But it's based off an award-winning novel written by Jenny Han and follows actress Lana Condor as a secondary student Lara Jean.

Instead of confronting the lads she likes, Lara writes love letters to the boys she's been eyeing up and hides them away in a teal box in her wardrobe.

Cue the little brat of a sister snooping in her room and sending the private confessions to the boys they're addressed to.

A whole lot of drama occurs which leads to an arrangement being made with a boy called Peter.

Peter and Lara agree to pretend to be each other's partners.

I am sure you can guess what happens from here, but the predictable plot still gets us every time.

The second instalment of the books is titled P.S. I Still Love You, which is already giving us feels.



UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to the rainy weather expected later on this evening, the Happenings and 7UP Free® screening of Dirty Dancing has been postponed until next week.

Happenings, in association with 7up Free is delighted to announce that it will return to Merrion Square, Dublin for the second instalment of Summer Cinema. The park will be transformed into an outdoor cinema for a special screening of the smash hit romcom Dirty Dancing tomorrow evening, Friday, July 27.

There's no better way to spend a Friday night than swooning over Patrick Swayze on the big screen.

The film follows the story of ‘Baby’ (Jennifer Grey) who finds herself on a sleepy summer holiday with her family. While there, she falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor Johnny (Patrick Swayze) whom her father forbids her to see. However, she is determined to help him perform the last big dance of the summer!

Gates open at 8.30pm with the movie screening beginning as the sun goes down.

Before the movie kicks off, guests can settle into a comfy billow bag with a complimentary 7up Free in the beautiful surrounds of Merrion Square – perfectly capturing the taste and feeling of summer.

There will be a host of tasty food vendors available and guests are welcome to bring their own picnics, snacks and outdoor movie essentials! In keeping with Happening’s Leave No Trace policy, Summer Cinema goers are urged to take all belongings with them once the movie has ended and small bags will be provided to dispose of any rubbish.

Places are limited for each screening, so make sure to follow the Happenings and 7UP Free social media channels to be the first to know the dates and times for each screening and avoid missing out on these blockbuster events.

Tickets are priced at €5 and are available to book in advance online or on the door. Early arrival is advised to get the best seats in the house – “Nobody puts baby in a corner!”


The weekend festivities may be over, but that doesn’t mean you have to wallow in your own self-pity tonight. One of the best things to do after a hectic weekend is to unwind and watch one of your favorite movies.

We recommend watching something light and funny to deal with that dreaded Sunday night fear, and luckily enough the perfect Sunday night flick is on TV tonight.

Thanks to the wonderful people over at Universal we’ll be tuning into one of the funniest Sandra Bullock movies.

The Proposal is on at 9 pm tonight and we are beyond excited about it. It’s hard to believe it’s been nine years since the film was initially released.

The hilarious movie stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds. Bullock stars as the fierce editor whose world flips upside down when she is told she might be deported back home to Canada.

Luckily, the quick-thinking boss puts a plan together and uses her assistant to solve her problems. She tells Reynolds’ character, Andrew, that he must marry her, but he will only agree if she promotes him to editor and publishes his book.

The duo embarks on a trip to Andrew’s hometown where they have to convince his family and their immigration agent that their marriage isn't a complete farce.

This movie is full of witty scenes, touching moments and an infamous dance sequence with Betty White.

We couldn’t think of anything better to watch on a Sunday night.

You can catch The Proposal on Universal at 9 pm tonight.



No matter how perfect (or not) your dating life is, it's just never going to be at a rom-com standard.

There's no soundtrack, for one, and unless you're extremely lucky you're probably not going to bump into Channing Tatum while walking down O'Connell St. 

We love a good romantic film, especially now that Valentine's Day is drawing near, but at the end of the day much of what's portrayed is totally unrealistic.

Here are just six of the many, many ways our love life doesn't resemble a Hollywood blockbuster…

1. There's no dramatic first meeting
Meeting at Coppers is not exactly the same as him convincing you not to jump off a ship into the freezing Atlantic Ocean.

2. If you hate someone, chances are you won't end up falling in love with them
Unless they REALLY change their commitment-phobic/arrogant/tactless ways.

3. That last-minute airport dash to tell someone you love them never seems convenient
Though we were totally rooting for Sam in Love Actually!

4. Kissing is the rain is NOT romantic
It's freezing cold, the wind is smacking us in the face and you want a SHIFT? G'way outta that.

5. The first time the two of you have sex is rarely amazing
It's either drunken or very awkward, let's be honest.

6. Even if you dramatically change your hair and clothes, he probably won't notice
That "big reveal" never quite works the same in real life as it does in the movies…




Although women enjoy a good sob after watching a rom-com, it looks like we’re not the only ones who dream of romance.

Results from a new survey showed that in a time when everyone is online, we still all long for a little traditional old fashioned romance.  Over 60% of singles revealed that they would rather declare their feelings for a new partner face-to-face rather than via social media or text.

Surprisingly, the study found that men are more than twice as likely to show their love with a romantic gesture, while women would rather let their man know how the feel via text.

The majority of men aged 35 and over think that a romantic gesture is the best way to show their emotions, but just 6% of 18 to 34-year-olds would consider a romantic gesture as a way to win a potential partner over! However, there’s still hope for our generation as 54% did admit they would prefer to let their feelings out face-to-face rather than opting for a text.

So when it comes to love, men are definitely the ones who are more expressive than women. Well at least we know who wears the pants!
