Storyline

Brooks Rattigan (Noah Centineo) has the academic chops to get into his dream Ivy League school, but what he's missing is an outstanding extracurricular - and the money. When he seizes on an opportunity to make some extra cash by posing as the boyfriend of a self-assured, combat boot-loving girl named Celia Lieberman (Laura Marano), he finds he has a knack for being the perfect stand-in. Together with his programmer friend Murph (Odiseas Georgiadis), Brooks launches an app selling himself as a plus-one for all occasions. Along the way, he meets the girl of his dreams (Camila Mendes). But when business starts to boom, Brooks must reassess everything he was once sure of.

Goofs

When the character Murph was designing the app for Brooks he said "Object C Infrastructure". A real developer would never have referred to a programming language in this way. You can also see that he is using VSCode to write the app, which is unusual for a developer writing an iPhone app. Most likely they would have used Xcode on a mac. See more »

Quotes

Lady with Brooks Walking: You want to know how you can tell if you're meant to be with someone? Just sit and have a conversation, some people when you talk to them, its like trying to listen to classical music on a radio with no antenna. You can push that dial back and forth all you want, but you only get the static. But when you're meant to be with someone, and they truly are the one, you just sit, start talking and a Beethoven sonata will begin to play

Ok "Critics" Calm Down....
16 April 2019 | by colleencanadaSee all my reviews

Is this movie predictable? Yes. A little cheesy. For sure. A mashup of teen movies before it. Oh Hell Yeah. But even for a cynic like me, I have to say it was a sweet little movie. And hey, it has the right message-look after your friends and family, be true to yourself and here's a novel idea-embrace something positive. It was refreshing to see something innocent..
