Did You Know?


Keanu Reeves improvised some of his scenes. It was his idea to list all of the Chinese dignitaries in the game night scene. Reeves also improvised the lines "I missed your light"/"I missed your soul", and "I don't have a problem, Sasha. What's your problem?" along with the karate gestures. See more »


Several instances of dialogue being dubbed in post-production during moments when characters are clearly not speaking, such as Sasha's lines about a tampon budget and Ellen's 80's comedy. See more »


Sasha Tran: Dude, you so did that on purpose.
Veronica: I thought it was just gonna be Mr. Kim. I had no idea Marcus was gonna be working with him.
Sasha Tran: The company is literally called, "Harry and Son."

User Reviews

Refreshing, hilarious and absolutely magical
1 June 2019 | by anvi-sharmaSee all my reviews

I think this might be my favourite rom-com ever. It had everything - I laughed and I cried multiple times throughout the movie. Special shoutout to Karan Soni and Michelle Buteau, who both had impeccable comedic timing and stole the show pretty much everytime they were on screen.

And of course, Randall Park and Ali Wong ... they KILLED it. This was gold. I had high expectations, and this met all of them and went beyond.

It was a little predictable and some of the jumps between scenes were a little quick, but these are just minor critiques.

Also, Keanu Reeves. That's all I'm gonna say about that.
