Someone Great Reviews

April 22, 2019
A fluffy romp with a sobering truth: relationships and your twenties may end, but neither signals the end of the world.
April 20, 2019
A movie that's best experienced while lazing on the couch, preferably on the morning after a wild night out.

This character is, for the moment, a mess, and Rodriguez really digs in, especially when Jenny's drunk. Who knew Jane was a fun filthy-mouthed drunk?
April 19, 2019
It's raw, visceral, and highly relatable.

It's not quite as charming or winning as other Netflix rom-com originals, but it does have a more meaningful message: Find yourself, then find the guy.

The "someone great" of the title isn't some mythical romantic object. It's each of them, bringing out the best in each other.
April 18, 2019
It's very funny and offers up plenty of heartwarming fodder for the sentimental among us.

The hooks on which "Someone Great" chooses to hang its emotional hats are a little clichéd, but Rodriguez, Snow and Wise have enough chemistry to pull it all off.
April 18, 2019
While the latest Netflix-produced rom-com struggles to decide what it wants to be, it seems clear from the outside - this should have been a TV series instead.

Robinson's big-screen debut feels like a newer breed of movie: the scrappy female-POV in which the love story at the center is as much about friendship or the face in the mirror as it is about any one man.

While this debut film from "Sweet/Vicious" creator Jennifer Kaytin Robinson is a raunchy good time, don't discount its moving message about the lasting power of female friendship.
April 18, 2019
What "Someone Great" is missing is anything that punctures its rom-com bubble. At no point is there any doubt that the power of friendship will triumph.

April 18, 2019
There's potential here for a kind of zeitgeisty farce... and yet Someone Great manages to undermine its capacity for novelty at almost every turn, remaining sadly compliant with the beats of the genre it seeks to uproot.

Someone Great services the head and heart in equal measure, hitting home the poignant profundity of Robinson's portrait of female friendship and fortitude.
