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

Charlie Rattigan: Damn, Brooks, you did all that just to raise money for Yale?
Charlie Rattigan: I'd have sold a non-vital organ, if I'd known it meant that much to you.
Charlie Rattigan: There's a reason God gave us two kidneys.
Charlie Rattigan: That spare kidney is just a rainy day cash cow, sitting there.

a flat story
12 April 2019 | by ops-52535See all my reviews

Without the crazy ups and downs you may expect from a comedy. its just that there are nothing here that makes me laugh, just a smile inside, and the rest is just cattanooga cho cho, with a lot of conversations with different persons in different settings

i think this in one of the many netflix-production that will place itself in the basket of inrecognition, unless you like social network-work, and the freshnes of new juicy fruits entering the silver screen with beauty and galore . i think the cast does a decent job, with acceptable acting, but the story are to innovative anb the characters are too boring,so its lack of sting makes this flick a bit benign. the concept of ideas are good but a bit spoiled on the fun. the filming are ållreit, but the timeline and quantities of customers makes it a bit blurry.

so the grumpy old man says ok, but not more than that.
