Everyone seems to be raving about Love at First Sight.
Rom-coms are good for the soul. I’d actually fortunately watch nothing however When Harry Met Sally, 13 Occurring 30, and How To Lose a Man in 10 Days ceaselessly.
I’m responsible of re-watching the identical motion pictures over and over as a result of I simply can’t get sufficient of them. Like Iris in The Vacation says: “I’m on the lookout for corny in my life” and that’s precisely what you get with Love at First Sight.

The charming Netflix rom-com relies on Jennifer E. Smith’s best-selling novel The Statistical Likelihood of Love at First Sight. E-book-to-screen variations are normally an enormous success with regards to rom-coms. Simply have a look at Love Rosie, Bridget Jones’s Diary, and To All The Boys I Beloved Earlier than.
Love at First Sight ticks all of the rom-com containers for me, particularly as a result of it’s solely 90 minutes lengthy. It has two charming leads, it’s set in London, and has a fairly respectable soundtrack.
On their flight from New York to London, Hadley and Oliver fall in love with one another. Nevertheless, they lose one another at customs and the opportunity of ever assembly one another once more appears inconceivable, however future might have a approach of adjusting the percentages.
The movie stars Haley Lu Richardson and Ben Hardy as Hadley and Oliver.
It’s charming, tacky, and just a little cringe-worthy however that’s what makes it a straightforward watch. Love at First Sight doesn’t fairly reside as much as Set It Up’s modern-day rom-com requirements, but it surely’s price a watch.
It’s the one modern-day rom-com that doesn’t strive too arduous. And one which’ll have you ever sobbing on the couch.
Love at First Sight is on Netflix now.
