For 10 years, Palm has been stuck in the friend zone with his best friend, Gink. He has had feelings for her since high school and even tried confessing to her then but she rejected him, saying that being friends was enough. Over the years, they grow closer to each other. Whenever Palm breaks up with his countless girlfriends, Gink will tell him off. As for Gink, whenever she fights with her boyfriend, it doesn't matter which country she is in at the time, Palm will use his perks as a flight attendant to fly to her the moment she gives him a call.

Cast & Credits
Quite frankly the aesthetics of the setting were top notch but the writing of the characters was a bit shallow for me. And they didn't take advantage of how good the cast (not saying didn't have chemistry, coz they sure did!). I just wished they could've polished the storyline where you could really root for a specific character.
The time-skips were a little confusing at first but given the ending, the nonlinear narrative seems logical.
I love the comedic parts of this film that actually makes the waiting for the climax a bit bearable.
If you want hard-hitting actions, tear-jerky romances this isn't a movie for you. But I will definitely put this high on my go-to list of movies when I just want a feel-good movie on a lonely Friday night in bed.
Nevertheless, I love the acting from both main casts. They showed a really good chemistry, I could feel their happiness and sadness really clearly. They also have a consistent character, Palm being the caring and always-there kind of friend and Gink being the sensitive and act-first-think-later kind of girl. I also would like to give a big applause for the ending, it is good to know that Palm is not chosen because Ted betrayed Gink, but because Gink realized that she is happy with Palm.
