At Midnight centers around Alejandro (Diego Boneta, “Father of the Bride”), an ambitious hotel manager, and Sophie (Monica Barbaro, TOP GUN: MAVERICK), a movie star navigating the politics of Hollywood. He’s focused on opening his own boutique hotel. She’s trying to focus on shooting her new superhero film, “Super Society 3,” in hopes of getting her own spinoff, but catches her co-star (and boyfriend!) Adam (Anders Holm, “Workaholics”) cheating. Fate strikes when the shoot brings them all to Alejandro’s hotel in Mexico. Despite their radically different lives, Alejandro and Sophie begin to secretly meet At Midnight







I know Rom Coms aren't exactly a draw here. But, I thought this trailer looked cute. And I like finally seeing something else from Barbaro other than Top Gun. Although this premise does feel familiar.

Monica Barbaro is super cute and I’d like to see what she can do after Top Gun but this movie looks like a modified script from a rejected Hallmark channel Christmas movie.

Seriously, a “boutique hotel”?

I'm working a graveyard shift tonight at work, so I might try to watch this during some down time. As long as it's cute and will make me smile, that's all I care about. I know this genre is not for most in this forum.

I actually quite liked this. Yes, it's cheesy and very predictable. It does have a lot of Rom Com cliches. But, it's beautifully shot. The Mexico scenery looked great streaming on my TV. And Monica Barbaro just looked stunningly beautiful in this. I think she really shined in this and showed she can do this genre. She and Diego Boneta had pretty good chemistry. I know this kind of movie is not for everyone, so I don't want to oversell it, but if you like the genre, then it's worth a watch. It does help the two leads are likeable.

I first noticed Monica’s beauty in the Netflix show The Good Cop. I also enjoyed this film, and she had actual chemistry with the hotel guy. She really is insanely beautiful.

One thing though, the ending felt a bit off, it had that same rushed feeling you get with quite a few Hallmark type films, which was a bit odd because their developing connection with each other was given space to breath earlier in the film.

Definitely worth a watch if you are into these types of films.
