Is It Any Good?
With holiday lights twinkling and jazz music wafting through the air, New York City is on glorious display in this passable romantic comedy. Deutch and Sampson also make a handsome couple in Something from Tiffany's. Both are charismatic and hold the camera's attention, and their individual performances make this film worth watching despite some predictable set-ups and character arcs. Jojo T. Gibbs offers a great performance as the deadpan best friend, and Jeffries as Daisy proves she's a young actor to watch. The film can't hold a candle to a classic NYC romance like When Harry Met Sally, but there are some parallels in what a perennially charming setting this city is at Christmastime.
