Brief Synopsis – Years after best friends have an awkward first sexual encounter and part ways, they meet up again and both wonder if they could possibly still be in love with one another.
Bottom Line – Intriguing idea that is a bit too predictable for its own good. The characters are fun to watch even if things don;t manage to find a way to remain unique. The chemistry between these characters is hot and miss here and the inconsistency is a bit problematic. They have a few humorous scenes, but the majority of the film is a bit too by-the-book.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Ali Wong and Randall Park said that Keanu Reeves was their first choice for the film. The script was sent to him, but Wong and Park never thought they would get him. Reeves had watched Wong’s Netflix special ‘Baby Cobra’ and read the script to ‘Always Be My Maybe’ and said yes. Wong said he wrote “I would be honored to be part of your love story.” Park said that Reeves was quoting lines from Wong’s special. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
