Netflix romance movies: Set It Up

Release Year: 2018

Directed by Claire Scanlon

Starring Zoey Deutch, Glen Powell, Taye Diggs, and Lucy Liu

Set It Up is one of the first successful Netflix adult romantic comedy. The film premiered in June 2018, and it kickstarted a run of successful Netflix romantic comedies.

The Netflix movie follows two personal assistants for high-level executives in New York City. Harper, played by Zooey Deutch, is trying to get her career going as a sportswriter, but she ends up working as the personal assistant for a sports media mogul, Kirsten, played by Lucy Liu. Charlie, played by Glen Powell, is stuck working for Rick, a womanizer, as Rick’s personal assistant.

Charlie and Harper hatch a plan to set their bosses up in a couple, so they can get some time off. The plan goes well initially, but you know what happens eventually, right?

I was really impressed with Deutch and Powell’s chemistry in this movie. The rest of the cast is quite good, too, including Pete Davidson, Jon Rudnitsky, Tituss Burgess, and Meredith Hagner.

Set It Up is a great rom-com to watch on Netflix. If you haven’t seen it, give it a watch on Netflix tonight.
