A love that lasts

Always be my maybe is a delightful Netflix movie where childhood sweethearts have a falling out after a rather awkward encounter and don't speak to one another for 15 years.

As luck would have it, they reconnect as adults when Sasha, now a celebrity chef, opens a restaurant in San Francisco and runs into Marcus, a happily struggling musician still living at home and working for his Dad.

Ali Wong and Randall Park sparkle together in this cheesy (in a good way) romantic comedy filled to the brim with heart, warmth and laughter.

Netflix is on a hot streak when it comes to releasing solid romantic comedies this year and Always be my maybe does everything to keep that momentum going – and succeeds. While the premise of the movie itself doesn't reinvent the formula, the way this movie sets itself apart is what makes it truly memorable. It has brilliant scenes, some which are funny, some that are sad and some that are just plain strange in the most welcoming way.

There's never a scene that feels out of place or badly placed, everything serves the purpose of continuing the plot in a funny and charming way. I can honestly say that there wasn't a part in the movie where I wasn't somewhat entertained. The interaction and chemistry between the characters is great and feels real and relatable. The “comedy” part of this rom-com is expertly done, providing jokes and one-liners that will make you chuckle and even laugh out loud. And that's a win in my book.

Always be my maybe is a sweet story that does play with a few clichés along the way. With solid acting and characters, along with a scene-stealing cameo, a feel-good premise and laughs all around; this one will definitely bring a smile to your face. If you're looking for an enjoyable comedy to watch at home under the covers, this one is definitely a must-watch.

WE give it a well deserving 4/5.
