{Movie Review} The Perfect Match Film Friday 11 March, 2016

New movie alert and we have a romantic comedy in session. I love this is new, young urban hollywood with not the regular people you see headlining films like this. You all know what I am talking about, the same faces (but no shade). Terrance J, yes the once star of the show 106 and Park produced his first staring role film with his leading lady being Cassie in The Perfect Match. It’s nice to see upcoming stars such as Rob Riley (Hit The Floor) and Dascha Polanco (Orange Is The New Black) outside of their respective television show and onto the big screen. This film is very modern about how dating is in today society amongst young adults and no strings attached commitments.

Synopsis: Charlie (Terrence J) is a bachelor who’s convinced that relationships are dead even though his sister (Paula Patton), a therapist, tries to tell him otherwise. His best friends bet him that if he sticks to one woman for one month, he’s bound to fall in love. An unconvinced Charlie takes the bet because he believes that he’s immune to love… until he crosses paths with the beautiful and mysterious Eva (Cassie Ventura). Charlie is sure that he will win the bet and prove his friends and sister wrong, so he rises to the occasion and takes on the challenge. Turning on his irresistible charm, Charlie coaxes Eva into a casual affair, but soon finds out that Eva has turned the tables on him. Unsure of what to think or how to feel, he finds himself trying to navigate in a foreign territory. Now, Charlie is left questioning whether he may actually want more than just a one-night stand.

My Opinion: I will not lie, I was about to pre-judge this film as a corny rom-com for the modern millennial. I pre-judged it. I was like typical, the lead man is a successful affluent playboy who doesnt want to settle down, always has women…so how many times do we need to hear this story? Well I think this was a great spin because in this movie Terrance J (Charlie) is the player amongst his coupled and committed friends. So he is the only one who wont settle down, even though he is at the age that he should. Until he comes across Cassie (Eva) who flips his world. Cassie I almost forgot how cute she is and she definitely played this role well, although she doesn’t have much of acting background. They have a no-strings attached relationship that seems perfect for most men in this day and age…but then there is a mega twist.

The twist in this film about their FWB (friends with Benefits) situationship is shocking! My jaw dropped because no one saw this coming! No one. I love movies that seem predictable and then you are like wow did that just happen? Yeah so there is a flip in this story that is worth the watch. I never saw this side of a story told like this and thats what makes the romantic comedy great. Most romantic comedies are centered around women and their emotions around relationships…but this is purely from Charlie’s point of view and where he need to make adjustment. It’s an eye-opener hopeful for the playboy men who may go see this film and change their outlook on FWB or just dating in general. Oh and Paula Patton is usually starring in films like this, but she is not a lead but a supporting character in this. That was cute!
