Pro Tip: Have your two stars spend more than 5 minutes together in the movie
It's a bit ridiculous you manage to get Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher to sign on for this mediocre rom-com, yet spend nearly the entire runtime with them on opposite sides of the country. No, the split screen phone conversations don't count. It's just a bit crazy that you have genuine Hollywood stars and you fail to capitalize on their banter and chemistry together.
What this leaves is an occasionally interesting, but more often lackluster Netflix Original. We've seen the story a thousand times and there's not really any new spin on it here. That's not to say there's nothing to like here, as it's a relatively harmless, light film. However, it just really feels like this could've had some more inspired dialogue, story beats, and character work on the journey to the expected finale. I'm not trying to sound like I hate movies you can predict, as I generally enjoy rom-coms and their big, cliched finale. This just felt like one that had potential to elevate a bit higher than most, but settles for being 2 hours of your life you likely won't remember much about or wish to revisit.
