Similarly to Always Be My Maybe, Plus One is also a kind of a revamped When Harry Met Sally. It follows the same structure and ultimately the same beats. Thus, it never quite reaches the emotional resonance it’s aiming for, even though the journey is compelling. The film intelligently taps into a new kind of social anxiety and frames it within the context of what true love means for the netizen generation.
Sometimes all a movie needs is to be sweet and funny, and this movie has that. However it also has Jack Quaid and Maya Erskine as perfectly cast leads. This definitely belongs in the same conversation as Set It Up and Always Be My Maybe
