Charming celebs Higareda and Chaparro re-team as co-stars in this predictable but amusing romantic comedy about finding somebody to love when you least expect it. The romance in Tod@s Caen is more nuanced than the bad-boy/good-girl dynamic in No Manches Frida. Mia and Adán are both ambitious professionals with significant romantic experience; here the romcom cliché is that they're both playing romantic sidekicks with the goal of helping their best friends, though a smattering of the "contest"-style fake relationship is thrown in from Mia's perspective. But Higareda and Chaparro have enough chemistry to pull off the unoriginal premise. Plus, their on-screen besties are pretty funny as the opposites-attract Toby and Margo, who are each looking for much more than a casual hookup.

The movie has a chummy, labor of love feel. Higareda and Chaparro aren't just friends and co-stars; they're both producers. Higareda co-wrote the film with her filmmaker husband, Cory Brusseau. The movie's director, Ariel Winograd, has worked with many of the stars before, and Higareda's acting siblings have supporting parts in the story. It's a simple, accessible comedy in which the whole cast is clearly having a fun time, and that's hard not to enjoy. This isn't the sort of emotional or swoon-worthy romance that's going to end up on a "best of" list, but Tod@s Caen is just cute enough to work well for a streaming night in or a date night out.
