User Reviews

A very charming heartfelt little movie.
10 September 2020 | by nazcarfanatic24See all my reviews

Charming, sweet, cute, mature little rom com. Sure it follows the typical formula but Brittany Snow and Sam Richardson elevate this movie from something that could've very easily been forgettable to a level of charm that'll certainly warm your heart. It doesn't fall victim to the usual contrivances or un-deserved endings you'd expect of the genre. The characters grow as people, not only that but they actively decide to better themselves

Definitely a must watch. It's now on my list of favorite romantic comedies
