What To Expect From Your Place Or Mine
As part of Screen Rant's Winter Movie Preview, writer-director Aline Brosh McKenna gave Screen Rant an exclusive look at what viewers can expect from Your Place or Mine.
Your Place or Mine is about finding love in literally unexpected places and about two people who are trying to get out of their own way to find what they deserve. I’m most excited for people to see Reese and Ashton’s performances. They light up the screen and will charm everyone’s pants off. Not literally. Figurative pants.
It's clear that McKenna is excited for viewers to see the chemistry between her two stars, but she's eager to stress that romantic love isn't the only kind of love can be found in the movie.
It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day, not just because it’s a love story, but really because there’s a lot of different kinds of love in the movie,” she says. “There’s parental love, friend love, love for a city that you live in. There’s a warmth and a lovingness to the environment that’s created in the movie. [It] was a really fun place to go to every day, and to imagine these people who really treat each other with a lot of kindness and respect.
Netflix released a video of Witherspoon and Kutcher for Your Place or My Place at its Tudum event in September. In the video, the two stars caught a glimpse of on-screen chemistry so intense it was compelling even over video chat. The big question they have to grapple with is: If they could star in a rom-com with anyone, living or dead, who would it be? Witherspoon answered her question without hesitation, as she suggested two of Hollywood's biggest stars: Cary Grant and Tom Hanks. Kutcher gave an answer that should feel scripted but seemed sincere, acknowledging that it would be Witherspoon herself.
After a long hiatus, the romantic comedy genre is back, and it turns out Netflix is adept at luring some of the best talent into the fray. Earlier this year, they premiered Lindsay Lohan's returning rom-com Falling for Christmas. They were also the location of another Ashton Kutcher film, No Strings Attached in 2011, co-starring Natalie Portman . If that's not for you, you can also access Netflix to stream what's widely considered to be one of The greatest romantic comedy of all time, When Harry Met Sally, stars the queen of the genre Meg Ryan and comedy legend Billy Crystal.
