Storyline

Childhood friends Sasha and Marcus have a falling out and don't speak for 15 years. But when Sasha, now a celebrity chef in Los Angeles, returns to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant, she runs into her old pal - a happily complacent musician still living at home and working for his dad. Though the two are reluctant to reconnect, they soon find the old sparks - and maybe some new ones - are there. Written by Netflix

Quotes

Sasha Tran: I don't give a shit. I don't give a shit about your branding thoughts. You never loved me! This was just about business! I cannot believe I wasted my prime reproductive years on you! I hope you have terrible karma and come back in the next life as a nasty little lizard and get stepped on by someone on a hike! You are getting the finger so hard right now! I hope you get malaria and shit yourself to death, you shitty piece of shit!

A tender rom com that I enjoyed right from the start when Sasha shuts her door in the face of Marcus until the credits during which Marcus sings his memorable encounter. The success of the film owes much to the actors playing the two main protagonists, either teen or adult, as well as the wacky and awesome presence of Keanu Reeves, as a repulsive guest star. The characters are globally endearing and transform this conventional story in a delightful rom com.
