“Sometimes the things you want the most don’t happen, and what you least expect happens. I don’t know; you meet thousands of people, and none of them really touch you. And then you meet one person, and your life is changed forever.”
Another film that I was led to by a Tik Tok. However, this time, I was pleasantly surprised by this powerhouse of a romantic comedy! I never expected the “they learn from each other to become better people and build a deep connection” to be this well-executed and impactful! I may have even become a bit misty-eyed at the finale. Separately, on the surface, they’re genuinely terrible people. The classic “you’ve met your match” scenario, where our leads bring out both the best and worst in each other. Through this wild ride of a whirlwind romance, you get just as lost in the blinding infatuation as the characters do.
It even contains some insightful commentary on the healthcare field and pharmaceutical industry. The other pharma reps duking it out in the corporate world. A disillusioned physician searching for the meaning that called him to the profession. Another unexpected well of insight and narrative depth that gave this film much more of a well-rounded sense of profundity to balance the levity of Jamie and Maggie’s no strings attached love affair.
