Always Be My Maybe (2019) - Comedy, Romance

Hohum Score

Breathtaking

Everyone assumed Sasha and Marcus would wind up together except for Sasha and Marcus. Reconnecting after 15 years, the two start to wonder - maybe?

One-line Reviews (103)

A bunch of cheesy (pun intended) pointless dialogue is delivered with an equally meaningless delivery from the actors.

As predictable as they come.

However, the cast chemistry, setting and style (think 90s hip hop in Cali), humor, and the abundance of Asian actors (including Keanu Reeves) makes for an enjoyable movie.

It was merely boring and followed the romcom formula.

Yes, there were some problems, but what is perfect, cos overall I enjoyed it.

Totally worth watching Highlh recommended

This movie is essentially the Asian-American and/or West Coast version of Brown Sugar (2002), albeit lower budget and production, but still an enjoyable movie that will leave you laughing, reminiscing, and relating to the characters' stories regardless of your background.

From Set It Up being one of their absolute best, to even enjoyable films like Someone Great or When We First Met, it almost feels like the home for the best romantic comedies is on Netflix these days.

50 shades of Entertaining .

bland rom-com with a few hilarious minutes in the middle .

Storyline dull.

While some of it was predictable, the movie had some substance and touching moments.

I throughly enjoyed it.

Very enjoyable.

Takes a bit to get going, but it's worth the watch!

I will admit, Keanu Reeves was really entertaining in this.

Plus, an extended cameo from Keanu Reeves as himself made this film all the more enjoyable.

While it is a fairly formulaic rom-com, I liked it more than I thought I would.

Overall, it's a very sweet movie and worth watching on a Sunday night.

Formulaic romcom that works.

Fun, entertaining, little bit boring sometimes.

Very predictable.

Why is this film so slow?

: This movie falls victim to the predictable narrative of the two main characters being mad at each other for a small portion of the movie.

There is even a VERY unexpected and quite hilarious "cameo" one would never expect.

Overall a thoroughly enjoyable show.

I think it's the delivery of the two leads, they're not ditzy, there's no awkward moments, and while cliche it somehow didn't feel cliche.

Really Funny Enjoyable Movie.

They took a bunch of cliche recognizable plot devices and put them together with self centred underdeveloped characters, self indulgent actors, and terrible writing.

The only reason it got three stars from me is there's a pretty unexpected cameo that totally cracked me up.

I enjoyed it; it's a nice casual watch and it's not too long nor does it require much thinking or active engagement.

Thoroughly enjoyable!

Unless it goes on to do something wonderful (doubtful), it was trite, predictable, poorly acted.

"Always Be My Maybe" is such an enjoyable romantic comedy.

I like Randall Park and Ali Wong, but the movie was too predictable.

I think it was a fun movie generally netflix film like laughing, entertaining.

Ali effortlessly is engaging as a high society chef who is trying to find her feet in love.

This is simply an entertaining RomCom movie.

It's a must watch, the characters are engaging and hilarious with a sick soundtrack even the weird songs Marcus and his band sing.

Only watch this movie if you are looking to giggle at how pointless and boring a romcom can possibly be.

And every version, funnier and more entertaining than this one.

I enjoyed it very much...

It is too predictable - two young lovebirds growing apart due to different careers and ambitions.

It kept my attention the entire time, it was fun, pleasant and entertaining.

His appearance was surprising and unpredictable.

The characters are believable and engaging, and they develop throughout the course of the film, which doesn't always happen with rom-coms.

To me, that made it worth the watch.

So predictable and so underwhelming.

It was a fun movie to watch and my wife, kids and I enjoyed it.

Soz but boring.

Contrived, narcissitic, and uninspired .

This is worth watching.

Witty fast paced and fun - Ali Wong and Randall Park have great chemistry - and both are dead-pan funny!

Really good movie - enjoyed it a lot .

This is the worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life, what is K.

Mostly, it fullfills it's purpose by beeing light hearted and sweet, leaving an expected but enjoyable smile on your face.

The whole experience is a bit boring to me.

The movie started out interesting, and then it turned into just another boring, romantic cliche.

It's hard to be invested or care about either main character as one is an arrested development man-child and the other is a pretentious jerk.

But it's a predictable, ordinary structured movie that leaves no element of surprise.

Most enjoyable lighthearted movie I've watched in ages .

It was entertaining from start to finish and I never felt bored when watching this movie.

Very enjoyable!

This was definitely enjoyable!

This was thoroughly entertaining throughout.

It's still a little early yet to tell whether or not Ali Wong will sustain a lasting film career.. if she does, the prospect of seeing her cast in a more emotionally challenging role is definitely intriguing.

The acting is wooden and contrived.

Boring.

Firstly i want to say that it's so amazing Netflix give chances to another cultures, which have great cast, performing a differential on the protagonists in this romantic movie, have comedy a little bit weird, but still works, and a story that maybe you identify yourself, I just think that the childhood could be more explored, was all too quickly, and some times on the middle have boring moments, but as a whole, it's pretty enjoyable.

Love the plot, simple yet entertaining, I am hoping the plot for next asian cast movies would be more complicated than this one.

There were some funny bits here and some good acting but that was diluted by factory cheese and dumbed down with mass market filler material, bling, cliche material and scenes, and the characters and actors deserved better than that, which was weird cos the 2 of the three writers were the 2 main cast members.

Though quite average and formulaic at times, Always Be My Maybe manages to take risks with much success, even while not totally being a great romantic comedy.

Enjoyable .

I think this is a really entertaining Rom-Com showcasing the talents of its two leads.

Just a cliche Netflix movie .

Funny and enjoyable.

That said, the movie was good, I enjoyed it.

Nahnatchka Khan has some solid comedic-direction, although conventional nevertheless, but Randall Park and Ali Wong share some strong-hilarious chemistry with each other, enough to carry on the majority of the film, even when it isn't that funny, but thankfully its cleverness is bigger than expected, and the appealingly-charm presence of Keanu Reeves portraying himself helps to bring an unexpected life to an average comedy.

While the premise itself isn't exactly something that people will be writing home about by the time 2019 comes to a close, this really is a film that puts its characters in the forefront, which made for a highly enjoyable little comedy.

The story is very rom com, but really enjoyable and funny, I especially like the end.

Thoroughly entertaining.

An intriguing film .

Laughed really hard, cried a little even and enjoyed it all the way through!

And worst of all, it was kinda boring.

Aside from the unoriginal story, the comedy was bland and the pacing was awful.

Rom-Coms have become a little too predictable.

The introduction of Keanu Reeves also a bit intense and funny!

A thoroughly enjoyable romantic comedy.

Don't want to go into it, the plot is already explained, just wanted to say it's cute and worth watching.

Many people raved about Keanu Reeves' exaggerated caricature; personally, while I thought it was entertaining at first, his character got a bit too aggressive near the end of his time.

Enjoyable RomCom .

Luckily Keanu Reeves appears and saved me from boredom.

With this being said, the film is entertaining because of its cultural aspect.

There are points in the movie that drag a bit, but then there are moments that make up for the slow parts simply because they are hilarious, and make the movie fun.

It was funny, charming, and very entertaining!

"Always Be My Maybe" is a fun, entertaining and fresh rom-com with a great pair of leads.

Throughly enjoyed it.

It starts off pretty slow but after about 20 mins it becomes very enjoyable and quite amusing especially the parts with Keanu Reeves.

Had high expectations for this movie But after 20 min it goes from a good entertaining movie to a to a complete disaster.

Yes it's predictable but it's enjoyable nonetheless.

One is an arrest development man-child and the other is a pretentious over achiever.

Obnoxious left-wing politics never cease to lessen the enjoyability of Netflix's original content, but it was still somewhat enjoyable besides this.

Enjoyable .
