Synopsis

Two overworked and underpaid assistants come up with a plan to get their bosses off their backs by setting them up with each other.

Our Take

7.0
Bilal Zouheir

This movie is a complete no-brainer.

It follows two assistants in busy New York City, both of them overworked and underpaid. They come up with a plan to set up their bosses (Set it Up) so that when their bosses finally take some personal time together, they could too. In a lot of ways, it’s the perfect argument to anyone who says that the rom-com genre is dead. It’s light, it’s easy, and it’s entertaining.

At the same time, there is a heartwarming vibe that’s not too cliché, and a couple of well-known actors — Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs — that help carry the plot. Don’t expect to be mind-blown but this film will leave you feeling content.

It’s kind of cute. I liked it, but only because I love Lucy Liu and don’t see her enough.
