18. Blockbuster

Blockbuster (also named Lola + Jeremy) came to Netflix in 2018 and is a French rom-com where a man, Jeremy, tries to win back his girlfriend, Lola, after she dumps him due to a video he made to amuse his sick father. He comes up with an elaborate plan with his friends and is willing to do just about anything to get her back.

Blockbuster stars Syrus Shahidi, Charlotte Gabris, Tom Hygreck, Gunther Love, Laura Boujenah, Foed Amara, and Lionel Abelanski.

What’s his plan to get her back? Lola loves superheroes and comics, so his plan is to get his friends together to dress up as a gang of famous heroes. They have the Hulk, Spiderman, Superman, and…a pig? They only have so many masks, so one of them has to be the pig. They plan to fake kidnap someone famous and then has the ransom be Lola. They post the ransom video online.

To no one’s surprise, this doesn’t work, so Jeremy must come up with another plan. Along the way, we see Lola and Jeremy talking to their friends and family trying to figure out what to do about their relationship. Jeremy has to express his real feelings for her in order to get her back.

The film is scattered with animation over the live-action performances to give it a more comic/fun vibe. If you are looking for a film that is equal parts comedy and romance, Blockbuster is your film. The hijinks Jeremy and his friends get up to are just as entertaining as the romance between the couple. This film is a must watch.
