It's not hard to see the shining star in this film. Maya Erskine (Alice) steals the show in more ways than one.
As for a ROMCOM - this movie doesn't really deviate from the typical Hollywood formula these days - but does a good job of mixing things up occasionally.
What is truly special about this film is Maya Erskine. Her presence on the screen is undeniable. She has fantastic timing and can definitely deliver the goods in the comedy department. Rarely do you see this level of talent these days. I predict a very successful career for Ms. Erskine if she can continue to find good movies like "Plus One".
My only negative comment is, I think the producers could have cast the part of Ben better. Jack Quaid did a good job, but it always felt like he was one step behind Alice.
Definitely worth a watch, if nothing more than to see a new rising star!
