YOUR PLACE OR MINE showcases two talented rom-com favorites, Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher. What a total waste of talent and time. 

The premise of best friends for twenty years who supposedly tell each other everything and chat every day sent neon flashing lights as to where this story would end. There were no surprises, no twists, or turns. This is due to weak writing. The ensemble was stacked with incredible, comedic, funny, hot actors such as Jesse Williams, Steve Zahn, and Rachel Bloom. The theme of exchanging homes has been done before. There were no new, creative subplots offered. It was obvious, blatant, and expected. With all this tremendous talent on board, where were the necessary words to make this film a hit? 

I am a huge fan of Reese. I watched this mainly because of her. It was a letdown. She was as cute as ever, but her character, Debbie, had nothing to offer in return except too much denim clothing. 

YOUR PLACE OR MINE was created with Valentine’s Day in mind. This is not the movie couples need to watch together. Rom-com enthusiasts deserve so much more. It is available to stream on NETFLIX.
