Set It Up follows the long-established outlines of the rom-com template -- and in the process, proves there's still substantial pleasure to be wrought from familiar formulas. It's wildly predictable and a little cheesy. And yet, it's an absolute gem of a movie.

Directed by Claire Scanlon, whose background as a comedy editor is felt in every frame of this breathlessly paced feature, Set It Up is Heck, I'll even say it's good! Really, though, the movie is cinematic Soylent: It's a testament to the film industry's years of neglect that we leave feeling full. It's a feel-good throwback to Nineties romantic comedies like When Harry Met Sally and You've Got Mail that left me warm and nostalgic for the simple pleasure of falling in love.

This film has it all-at least by the standards of a fun, disposable romantic comedy, the likes of which Hollywood rarely bothers to release anymore. While so many recent renditions of the rom-com have tried to upgrade the Marry me rotten tomatoes lucy liu dating - usually by going the raunchy route - Set It Up feels so purposefully classic and familiar that it plays right into that nostalgic feel-good spot.

It's the best version of what a Netflix movie should be. Overall, Set It Up is the most delightful way one could spend a lazy afternoon or cozy date night in. It's calculative matchmaking, but not entirely genuine.

Consequentially, the narrative appears more custom-made than it already is. At a run-time of an hour and forty-five minutes, the fast pace of the film never drops as the momentum is held by the energetic spirits of both Powell and Deutch. You know, if you were to have asked me what my least favorite film genres were, I'd have said rom-coms and evil child horror movies though that's a really a subgenre. I think the perception of rom-coms being sentimental cheesefests was something Marry me rotten tomatoes lucy liu dating was just too much for me to take.

But, in all honesty, I've come to the conclusion that I don't really have anything against the romantic comedy genre itself. The reason I've come to this conclusion is because of my constant criticism of people who shower blanket criticisms at the found footage genre. That there are bad movies using the found footage style cannot be denied, but that shouldn't be used to justify disdain for a genre that can be used to really cool effects. It all depends on the crew behind that particular film.
