Always Be My Maybe (2019) - Comedy, Romance

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

Enjoyable RomCom .

Totally worth watching Highlh recommended

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

Most enjoyable lighthearted movie I've watched in ages .

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

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

An enjoyable rom-com .

Entertaining rom-com.

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

Boring Movies .

Enjoyable .

The acting is wooden and contrived.


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

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

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.

As predictable as they come.

An intriguing film .

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

Really good movie - enjoyed it a lot .

Just plain boring.

Seriously, he's funny, unexpected, and also his usual sexy self.

Two comic talents and Keanu sank by boring formula .

To me, that made it worth the watch.

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

Funny and enjoyable.

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.

Quite boring.

Very predictable.

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.

A thoroughly enjoyable romantic comedy.

Throughly enjoyed it.

This movie was so boring just skip this please Please ignore this movie

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

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

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

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

Just a cliche Netflix movie .

His appearance was surprising and unpredictable.

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.

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.

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

As its own effort, it really works out well; although there are some flaws, there are unexpected elements, such as the appearance of Keanu Reeves as himself, which during his entire screen time, the movie goes to a higher level of fun.

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

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

Very enjoyable.

Lighthearted, compelling story and quite clever in its story.

Funny and enjoyable .

We are in quarantine around the world because of corona and even out of boredom I could not finish that movie .. meh

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

Thoroughly enjoyable!

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

This was definitely enjoyable!

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

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

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

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

Soz but boring.

This is worth watching.

Rom-Coms have become a little too predictable.

But, despite of the good haha moments that I had, the storyline was kind of boring.

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

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

Why is this film so slow?

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

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

Very enjoyable!

Contrived, narcissitic, and uninspired .

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

The plot is a mess,and boring.

This is simply an entertaining RomCom movie.

The ending feels super cliche and the characters are terrible.

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

This was a fun, enjoyable, rom-com movie.

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

Storyline was weak, no chemistry, so contrived and all over the place.

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

Well worth watching.

This was thoroughly entertaining throughout.

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

The worst movie I have seen in a while .

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

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.

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

50 shades of Entertaining .

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.

I enjoyed it very much...

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

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.

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

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.

The story hits every single cliché in this category and is suitable consumption for those who only watch movies that provide no new content at all.

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.

I throughly enjoyed it.

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

And worst of all, it was kinda boring.

Really Funny Enjoyable Movie.

Storyline dull.

Formulaic romcom that works.


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

Thoroughly entertaining.

Overall a thoroughly enjoyable show.

Fun, entertaining, little bit boring sometimes.

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

It was merely boring and followed the romcom formula.

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

Luckily Keanu Reeves appears and saved me from boredom.

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

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

It was funny, charming, and very entertaining!

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

Enjoyable .

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

Keanu Reeves' unexpected appearance was absolutely welcome and hilarious.

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.

: 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.

So predictable and so underwhelming.

The characters are shallow and unlikable, the plot is an overdone cliche and the only thing it has going for it was Keanu Reeves.

It's a very fun movie and enjoyable to watch.

The whole experience is a bit boring to me.

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.

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

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


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

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