Did You Know?

Trivia

During the scene at the Yankees game, the song "Power of Love" by Huey Lewis & The News plays over the stadium intercom. It was also the theme song for Back to the Future (1985) which starred Zoey Deutch's mother Lea Thompson. See more »

Goofs

Actual footage from a Yankees-Red Sox game is used in the scene where the main characters try to get Kirsten and Rick on the kiss cam. However, the announcer's comments are fake - for example, at one point he says Andrew Benintendi is batting for the Red Sox, but the player shown is definitely not Benintendi (it appears to be Rafael Devers instead) See more »

A Really Old School Romcom
16 June 2018 | by richard-fieldhouseSee all my reviews

Two ridiculously overworked personal assistants hit on the idea of setting up their respective bosses together in the hopes that the assistants will then get pushed around a bit less. At first they're surprisingly successful but a plot this ambitious could never run totally smoothly could it?

So the premise of the film is very simple and the plot also develops along predicable lines. About ten minutes in, I was getting concerned about issues of workplace bullying, but then I got caught up in the energy of the story and the characters of the two assistants, Harper and Charlie, played by Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell. Yes, they are bullied and yes you could definitely say that the male boss - Rick, played by Taye Diggs - is a bit of a two dimensional caricature. But this is a romcom, not a documentary, so who cares.

There are enough laughs and the characters learn a little about themselves and about life along way, and most of all everyone - all the actors - get stuck in and really enjoy themselves. Right from Lucy Liu as the female sports journalist boss, right through to the cameos by the elevator engineer and the assistant in the jewellers.

It's a very wordy script delivered at a terrific pace, perhaps particularly thanks to Zoey Deutch, and most people should really enjoy it.
