Aussie boy's thoughts

Set it Up is just another romantic comedy that follows the typical romcom’s basic design; it promises an original idea, a creatively-constructed plan, charming characters and an upbeat sense of humour. Overall, the entire film is absolutely loveable.

Firstly, all the film truly needs is a fun selection of actors and actresses. A romantic comedy is incomplete without appealing personalities who are sweetly able to provide witty laughs. Set it Up successfully nails that component by involving the memorable cast of Zoey Deutch and Glen Powell, alongside Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs.

This romcom also brightly executes the storyline, which is very witty and entertaining itself. However, Set it Up is just as predictable as other romantic comedies. It also involves some unfair stereotyping. Ignore these things and it’s pretty much perfect! Fans of the genre, you cannot miss this one.
