The pacing is a bit too slow for someone like me (I'm all about instalove), but that's just MHO. It's not that there were scenes I think should be cut. There weren't. It's really just me, and the way I like my movies and books even.
Anyway, on to the stuff that I loved as an author (it's why I'm writing this review here)---
- Characters were imperfect but still likeable; I also loved that they showed growth.
- Scenes that made me cry (spoiler alert! highlight if you wish to read): Sarah getting kicked out of her house, Sarah wanting to make it up to her mom, Piolo's crying scene, Sarah learning how to forgive (the part where she was listening to Piolo's apology CD), and Piolo saying ILY through album covers
- HEA!!! Because I hate - goddammit I totally hate - it when you make me think I'm watching a rom-com and then the film ends with the H/h not getting back together (I'm looking at you, Kimerald! Toni/Piolo's an exception coz I asked for spoilers for that one).
