What do the Critics Say About the Movie?
The critics found the concept of the movie way too silly and some characters too lame and irritating. Many people even found the main lead Matt too lame and disliked him for mistreating his childhood best friend, Annie, after falling in love with Nicole. It was just a ‘two best friends falling in love’ story weaved in a slightly different way with the weird concept of relating taste of food with falling in love with someone. mistreating his childhood best friend, Annie
The cast was excellent, but the portrayal of the characters should have been more accurate. Even with the slightly different storyline, the movie would have gained more popularity if the characters, by any chance, were exciting and relatable to the viewers.
Should We Stream it or Skip it?
Even with all the critics, the movie deserves atleast a once-watch by people who love the romance genre. The movie has a hidden meaning of how love can make people work for better or make them better.
It also portrays how friendship is what you need in love for it to be alive through the bond of Matt and Annie. The movie also gifts the viewers with beautiful scenery of where the movie has been filmed. So, even though not the best, the movie will not make the viewers regret watching it.
