If you too are habitual of scrolling on Netflix or surfing through the net in search of a perfect entertainment to kill a couple of hours on a mundane day, read on. This review might be of help. While looking up for romcoms on one fine evening when I came across The Perfect Date and saw that it features Noah Centineo, I pressed play without giving it a second thought. But here’s why you shouldn’t!
Whether you’re absolutely free and spending your 1.5 hours on anything means nothing to you, I would strongly suggest to not kill it over this movie. While our male protagonist is cool and all over the movie spreading his irresistible charm, the female protagonist Laura Marano is equally cute and awesome. But decent acting aside, this move fails to come through as a strong plot. The storyline is pretty cliche and needless to say too predictable. Also, it feels too corny and cringe-worthy at times, even though am a huge fan of romcoms.
The movie environs around a college guy who develops an app to earn some good money by escorting people to places as their one-time date. But like most romantic flicks, the guy experiences a change in his feelings when he accidently falls in love with one of his fake dates. But that’s not it. There’s some family drama too! The guy’s married father ends up having an affair with the girl’s single mother. Phew!
Now The Perfect Date is not perfect, but it’s not that bad either, or is it? Well, if you ask me, I would immediately choose the latter because all throughout the movie, I wanted it to end, which is pretty unlike me. All I felt at the end of this movie was that I wasted my one and a half hours and you should not! But hey! Just in case you have already, please let me know in the comments below. I would love to know what you think of this teenage flick.
