Is It Any Good?

It has a somewhat contrived plot that isn't apparent until the end, but in spite of this, the movie offers a nice counter to a lot of modern romcoms and stays wholesome throughout. It has hardly any sex in it and instead focuses on the slow and steady way people get to know each other, underscores what we're all looking for in a romantic partner, and how important it is to be honest with people along the way. The characters feel a little more believable than most, with a kind of affable chemistry and low-key humor that keeps things moving even when the plot feels far-fetched.

Some heavy themes about divorce and childbearing make this best for older kids, but overall it's a refreshing meditation on the merits of really taking your time and getting to know someone before committing.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
