The biggest surprise of this romantic comedy is the unexpected participation of Keanu Reeves, who contrary to his regular action characters, will leave you laughing.

Fifteen years later Sasha and Marcus meet again and have strong feelings for each other, however, there will be some obstacles that will have to overcome to be together.

It is a romantic comedy , which does use the constant jokes , including the simplest and unexpected but that will make you laugh out loud and even cause stomach pain because you will not stop laughing.
Although the plot is simple and most of the film is comical , it has its deep and reflective parts, because it will make you think what each of the characters deserves, and who is the one who is right in their conflict to make compatible and empathize with the other. But despite playing this theme, its main attraction, undoubtedly, is comedy, and it's no surprise, because the protagonist, Ali Wong ( Sasha ) is a popular American standupera .
Something that is also worth noting is the inclusion that the film shows; starting with the fact that it is a couple Asian protagonist , something that is not seen so often in the Hollywood film industry, and also its inclusion of LGBT characters.
However, despite the good plot, the deep themes, the hilarious jokes , the inclusion and good performances of the entire cast, the film takes the complete participation of Keanu Reeves , who barely appears in a couple of scenes but who It makes gold worth the entire film.
