Movie review: Effortlessly watch this captivating romcom

Henry

ANYONE BUT YOU
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (7/10)
With Sydney Sweeney and Glen Powell
Director: Will Gluck

It is sometimes more interesting to watch the audience than the film. In the glamorous, thought-provoking, romantic comedy, Anyone But Youwhich takes place in Australia and gives a lot of exposure to the tourist attractions there, two of the most beautiful people you’ve ever seen fall in love.

There are few scenes where they don’t show their bodies shamelessly, as if the producers were worried that people are already so tired of romantic comedies, that they wouldn’t watch if there wasn’t something for the eye.

Anyone But You, which audiences really like because the theater I saw it in was sold out, is about two beautiful people who are gawked at by the audience. They pretend to be a couple. The story is of course an excuse to make them realize that they, this is now the glamorous couple, are actually in love with each other. It’s loosely based on Shakespeare’s, by the way Much Ado About Nothing based.

The two’s clumsy love antics were of course specially devised to give a different angle to romantic comedies, and elevate the film a bit above the banal, below-average rom-coms we are used to.

If you want to get out of the house a bit and want to watch movies effortlessly, without yawning in boredom, try it Anyone But Youin theaters only.

Much for the eyes, wool for the brain.
