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

Brooks Rattigan: [Brooks's letter to Celia] Dear Admissions Office of the University of Celia Lieberman, First off, I just want to say what an honor it is just to be considered as a potential attendee at your fine institution. And secondly, this feels really creepy writing to you as if you're a university and not a person, so I'll stop that now. A few months ago, I was a guy who carried around this empty feeling. Then, I thought that it could be filled by driving the nicest car, dating the most popular girl, or ...

It's the same. But the same is good for me
17 April 2019 | by nrppaulSee all my reviews

It's literally the same as all other Noah Centineo movies. The same writing and plot line and storyline of all teen Netflix original movies recently. Same aesthetic, same soundtrack, same morals and same story. But, I loved it lol. If you're after something new and innovative, this isn't it. But if you're after a feel-good teen romance movie with that aesthetic and cute adorable Noah Centineo dorky smile? Then this is a nice hour and a half for you
