If You Miss Classic Rom-Coms, These 24 Reactions Will Convince You to Watch Set It Up
Please pull up a chair — we need to chat about Set It Up. When I first heard that this Netflix original film was going to lead the "resurgence of romantic comedies," I too rolled my eyes. After all, almost nothing can live up to the standard Nora Ephron set throughout the '90s. However, I was pleasantly surprised (and put in my place) when I pressed play.
The plot, characters, writing, and setting quickly became both familiar and refreshing at the same time. Taye Diggs and Lucy Liu bring the heat as demanding bosses manipulated into a relationship by their desperately overworked assistants, played by Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell. Deutch and Powell bring a fun and flirty chemistry to their characters, which is now being compared to rom-com legends Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks. If you're still not convinced, let these rom-com fans on Twitter vouch for the film.
