Set It Up (2018)
The return of the rom-com has come upon us, and honestly it’s been too long since we’ve seen the cheesiest of meet-cutes. The Netflix Original movie Set It Up checks all of our boxes for the perfect romantic comedy. Set in New York, the movie follows the story of two overworked assistants who devise a plan to set their bosses up and make them fall in love in order to distract them from work. Although this scheme works for a bit, the two main characters end up spending a lot of time together and….well you might be able to guess what happens from here. This traditional rom-com gets two thumbs up from us!

FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened (2019)
Beyond all the controversy and lawsuits pertaining to this documentary (blah, blah, blah), FYRE is flat out fun and thrilling entertainment. For those of you who aren’t in the loop, FYRE was a failed luxury music festival that was supposed to take place in the Bahamas in 2017, but has now become known as “the greatest party that never happened.” The documentary gives all the juicy details behind the catastrophic event, including attendees showing up to a basically deserted island with tents and packaged sandwiches to the promotion of the event from models such as Kendall Jenner and Bella Hadid. And that’s just the start to this rollercoaster of a true story.
If you’re in the mood for a mixture between Hairspray and Steel Magnolias…
Jennifer Aniston slays yet another role in this heartwarming flick. But the real star here is the character of Willowdean, played by Danielle MacDonald. The coming-of-age movie follows the story of a plus-sized teenager who decides to follow in her pageant mother’s footsteps and sign up for a pageant as a sort of protest against the body standards for the competitions. This film is definitely fun-loving, yet inspiring and just FYI, if you love Dolly Parton, be sure to check it out!
