The cast was fine, but otherwise, I thought it was pretty terrible. Set It Up (on Netflix) is a better Powell romcom. I'll continue to lament how much of a shame it is that Hit Man isn't getting a theatrical release considering how well this did and Hit Man is 100x better.

I also didn't buy into how much they hated each other after only meeting for one night and not even sleeping together.

Ugh. I ****hated**** this movie. And I'm stunned how well it did at the box-office. Seriously!? Numbskull script and terrible acting. A favorite review:

I tried to watch this yesterday, but it is locked if you (like me) have Netflix with ads.

It was not great but it was not horrible and ok for a Fri or Sat one time viewing.


Still amazing it made all that money and there is a dearth of theatrical rom coms and this came along and people wanted to see one badly in the theaters?

I hope they don't do a sequel.

I hated Unwritten by Natasha Bedingfield in the mid aughts and I still hate that song in 2024.

For fellow Canadians this is also now streaming on Crave. I watched it last night, nothing special but not horrible, it was just alright.

I thought Bryan Brown passed away a couple of years ago but good news he is still alive and thought I would see this movie is dedicated to Bryan Brown in the closing credits but a good thing that did not happen.

I had a feeling this forum would be pretty tough on this movie once it became more widely available on Netflix I understand comedy is very subjective and doesn't hit people the same way.

For the record, I totally forgot about Unwritten and I loved the closing credits and thought it was cute how they used it. I now have Unwritten on my YouTube music playlist.

Oof, only got through about half this movie (watched on Netflix). Terrible movie.

The plot made was a mess. The supporting characters were cliches. Sweeney’s acting was not good.

This really should have been a simple romantic comedy to enjoy, but it was awful.

Set It Up, another Glen Powell romantic comedy, was far superior.

Thank you! I thought I was crazy because everyone I know loved it. Sydney Sweeney is really just not a good actress. She's got great tits and good chemistry with Glen Powell but some of those line readings were like a high school play. Im thinking the reshoots were to redo the scenes where they couldn't hide her bad line readings through ADR.

I wasn't expecting Cary Grant and Irene Dunne but even something on par with My Best Friends Wedding should have been possible. Did they have to say the word 'fuck' so much? It doesnt make the characters any more Gen Z or modern, its just bad writing.

But most of this script was bad. The transition from hating each other to acting like they hate to being in love to hating again, just messy and difficult to follow!

I know its trendy for hot male actors to appear buck naked cupping their cock and balls but watching Sweeney look up his asshole was a bit much for a date night movie.

And what was Bryan Brown doing in this and who thought he and Michelle Hurd made a realistic couple? I watched this mainly because the two leads were hot. Glen Powell definitely has a career ahead of him. Sweeney will be doing Onlyfans in 10 years.

I don't watch Euphoria but is Sweeney good in that since that was probably her breakout role?



I thought she was pretty good in Reality a HBO movie or maybe she did not have a lot of lines and it was not so glaring.

Josh Hamilton stole that movie with his performance.

It's hard to say because the tone of the show and most of the actors in it all being at the same level of skill. Hunter Schaefer, the trans actor on the show, had the same issue but that was only like his second or third job. Sweeney had a couple of great scenes but looking back now I realize it was probably more due to the drama on screen and some good editing. Her showdowns with Maddie and her puking in the hot tub were fun scenes to watch but I credit the writers more than her 'acting'.

Maybe I'm being too hard on her. I'll watch Madame Web and the nun movie she did and see if she got any better. I'm still just amazed that even on a big budget movie like this there was no one at the studio, the director, her agent, who watched things and thought, this is gonna make her look bad and its not helping the movie.

I'm not sure Madame Web is what you want to go to to determine her worth as an actress (not that I've actually seen it)

Sure. I guess you are hoping for that?

How does Drea de Matteo look?

You can check out Madame X starting on Tues May 14 if you want to do more research.

Most likely yes because it's licensed content from Sony.

Just watch certain episodes on Euphoria for your necessary "research."

Since Madame Web is Sony, it will end up on Crave here in Canada (just as Anyone But You is), but I'm not sure when.

She's a sexy young actress who is having a big career moment. I'm sure we can list dozens of actresses who experienced the same thing. The heat fades. They keep working in some capacity, but don't maintain careers as big stars or lauded actors. There's always some new IT girl coming down the pike to replace them.

When's the last time you guys had a relationship with a mid-20s woman? Her acting is pretty spot-on for current young Millennials/older Gen Zs
