Netflix’s Your Place Or Mine is a cute film with some big actors, but it fails to deliver anything new to the genre. Check out the details in my parents guide movie review.
Netflix’s Your Place or Mine dropped on the streaming service last Friday, February 10th. The film stars Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher, who play best friends who hooked up years ago but kept their friendship regardless of their romance not working out. The rom-com is fun to watch but brings nothing new to the genre and is highly predictable. Check out the details in my parents guide movie review.

Netflix’s Your Place or Mine is yet another romantic comedy making it to the streaming service that really doesn’t offer anything new or fresh to the genre, yet is an enjoyable enough movie to watch this Valentine’s Day with your sweetie. Like most of these sorts of rom-coms, the movie is highly predictable and is a different sort of romantic comedy, where neither of the leads really spend time together onscreen.
The biggest flaw in Netflix’s Your Place or Mine is the fact that the leads never share an onscreen moment together until the very end. Due to this, there really isn’t any onscreen chemistry to speak of, and in fact, it had audiences disconnected from the romance of the leads and instead more invested in the “hook-ups” that occur with other characters in the film.
Your Place or Mine stars Reese Witherspoon (Debbie) and Ashton Kutcher (Peter), who both give solid performances, which may not come as a surprise to many. Zoe Chao and Jesse Williams play Debbie and Peter’s love interests, Minka and Theo, respectively, and both bring some of the best and most humorous moments in the film. It also includes comedian Tig Notaro, who is vastly underused in the movie and whose dry sense of humor will have the most serious person cracking a smile; it is a shame she wasn’t utilized more for the comedy aspects of the movie.
Overall, Netflix’s Your Place or Mine is enjoyable to watch if viewers go into it not expecting much but just looking for a light and breezy rom-com film to enjoy. It won’t win any awards or be nominated for any Oscars, but it is still a fun watch and perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day holiday.
