Cast & Credits
First of all, the trailer shows a little too much. I think you should watch around half of it, and if you are into these types of movies, you should definitely watch it.
This movie was really enjoyable. It tells the story of the two main characters from the start of their relationship to the end. While it does have some cliche's from rom coms, but the dialog really makes it much smarter and a little deeper. The comedy is not goofy, and pretty light, brought tons of smiles, yet did not make me laugh out loud. But I was not looking for that.
The music is great, as one of the main characters is a musician. There was a great scene where music triggers a memory, and it was pretty funny. I also really like the camera shots in this film. You'll notice the lighting is great even in dark scenes. For example, there was a dark scene in the kitchen where a character was in the foreground, but you could also see the 2nd character in the background, out of focus on purpose , but you could see exactly what they were doing because the lighting from the outside would silhouette the character. It was filmed real great.
The acting was great for the two main characters; you could feel the chemistry. There were so many scenes that were adorable, the cuteness overload is real. The supporting cast though, the acting was kinda meh, sometimes a little over the top. But it didn't detract from the movie as a whole. Overall a great movie that I would recommend to people that like romcoms where a couple is already established, but work to get over their problems with each other.
