Netflix Original Rom-com Reviews
By Grace Mansour
I looked at 5 of the new Netflix original romantic comedies, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, Set It Up, When We First Meet, Sierra Burgess is a Loser, and The Kissing Booth.
In my opinion, To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before is the best one of these movies. It is a romantic comedy based on a book, the movie is about a teenage girl who has her love letters exposed to all of the boys that she has loved. There are many twists and turns during the movie to keep you always hooked. The quality and acting was a lot better in this one and it was very entertaining. I wanted to keep watching and never put it on pause.
Set It Up is one of the better original films on Netflix. This movie is about two assistants who set up their bosses with each other. The acting was very good, but it did not do a good job of keeping me entertained throughout the whole movie.
When We First Meet was an okay movie it was not very entertaining but it did have good acting. It is about someone who falls in love with a girl and she doesn’t like him back, he ends up finding a way to travel back in time to try and get her to like him.
Sierra Burgess is a Loser was a boring movie. I felt the urge to go on my phone or do something else while watching it. The movie is about the biggest loser in school liking a guy who thinks she is the popular girl; you will have to watch to see what happens.
The Kissing Booth was super popular just because of the story line. The acting and quality of the movie was not very good overall. The Kissing Booth is about a girl having to kiss her crush in front of the whole school at a kissing booth, and it turns out that her crush is actually her best friends brother.
I then asked four of my friends what they thought about the movies and everyone thought that To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before was the best one of these movies. It was a tie for second place with Sierra Burgess is a Loser and The Kissing Booth. Some people haven’t seen When We First Meet and Set It Up, so those movies were either in fourth place or fifth because they are not as popular and well know. Overall, the best movie was To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, and I really recommend watching it in your free time.
