Your Place or Mine is one of the first recently released Netflix rom-coms that does not involve significant cheesiness. Albeit, the two leads unfortunately lack chemistry and this creates some uncomfortable acting in many scenes.
The timeline and the script is also disorganized and frankly, unrealistic. Some of the lines the actors use sound forced, as though they are trying too hard to be relatable. Although the two leads are famously well-known, their dialogue is not engaging, especially amongst their supporting cast. The only real positive takeaway from this film, is the colourful imagery between LA and New York, and the amusing anecdotes within the credits. Overall, “Your Place or Mine” involves weak character portrayals with a poorly executed plot.
