Sometimes I look at what Netflix produces and I think “Who would want to watch this, especially at home on streaming?” But I will. A romantic comedy with two of the genre’s most popular actors – Reese Witherspoon and Ashton is a coach — in a film by the author of 27 dresses and The Devil Wears Prada, Aline Brosh McKenna. This is a no-brainer. People are going to watch this on Netflix.
It is called Your place or mine, and it’s about a couple of long-time friends (who slept together once many years ago) who switch homes for a week. You’ll never guess what happens next unless you’ve seen another romantic comedy. But that’s not the point! Rom-coms are supposed to be predictable. This is why people enjoy them; they love to see people fall in love.
The film debuts on Netflix next month; here is the trailer:
In a statement attached to the trailer, Kutcher claimed “over the years, with every romantic comedy I thought about doing, I would always ask if Reese was available. I’ve wanted to work with her my whole career. And so when I was approached about this movie, I immediately said, yes. It’s kind of surprising that they haven’t actually done one of these together until now.
Here is the film’s official synopsis:
Debbie (Reese Witherspoon) and Peter (Ashton Kutcher) have been best friends for 20 years, even though they are complete opposites. Practical, risk-taking accountant Debbie craves routine and stability with her son Jack (Wesley Kimmel) in LA; Stylish brand consultant Peter thrives on change in New York City. When they swap houses and lives for a week, they learn they haven’t told each other everything after all, and discover that what they think they want may not be what they really need.
Your place or mine is scheduled to premiere on Netflix on February 10.
