To All The Boys I've Ever Loved Before is the latest teen rom com addition to Netflix, and the movie has already swept fans off their feet with its hilarious yet touchingly emotional tale.
Netflix users are singing the praises of the film on social media, with enamoured Maltida star Mara Wilson posting: "To All The Boys I've Ever Loved Before had me laughing and crying - it's the romantic comedy we needed."
The film is based on the best-selling 2014 YA novel by Jenny Han of the same name, and it premiered on 17th August over on the subscription streaming service ready for a binge watch.
The film is arguably one of the most relatable flicks around and will doubtlessly have you reflecting over your own dating history. The story follows 16-year-old Lara Jean (Lana Candor) who writes a letter to every boy she's ever loved, keeping them all safely inside a hat box for her eyes only.
But things get complicated when each and every single one of the letters are posted to Lara's former crushes. She must then face the ultimate humiliation at her high school as they all realise her true feelings.
All isn't lost though, as one of the guys, Peter Kavinsky (Noah Centineo), steps up by suggesting that they fake a relationship to make everyone else jealous.
The movie has had people sobbing into their sofas with both joy and sadness.
"I've already seen To All The Boys I've Ever Loved Before two times and if you think I'm gonna watch it again tonight just to see Peter Kavinsky you're exactly right," one viewer wrote.

Fans are also praising the production company's choice of female lead, claiming that Asian-Americans are finally starting to be represented in film, especially following the release of Crazy Rich Asians.
"Between Crazy Rich Asians, To All The Boys I've Loved Before, & Set It Up, I will have seen more movies starring Asian American women this week than I have seen in my entire life," tweeted one.
Another echoed: "In April I submitted my senior thesis about the importance of Asian representation in media. Today I saw Crazy Rich Asians, To All The Boys I've Loved Before and my heart is soaring."
