"Two assistants team up to trick their workaholic bosses into falling in love."
I think The Parent Trap's Hallie and Annie would be thoroughly impressed with this elaborate scheming in the name of forced romance.
It's not like The Kissing Booth set the bar super high or anything, but I've actually laughed out loud multiple times. This entire cast is magnificent.
Dude isn't even important enough for us to know his name, so I can't imagine him and Harper ending up together.
Now that their bosses are hooking up, Charlie and Harper both have time to maintain their love lives. I'm going to enjoy these brief moments of the movie in which there's zero conflict because I know it'll change shortly.
In Set It Up, Davidson plays Duncan, Charlie's roommate who pops up in scenes from time to time to provide some funny dialogue.

This is a quality movie worthy of being released in theaters around Valentine's Day, but kudos to Netflix for providing us with a rom-com that doesn't just not suck, but is also actually good!
ROM-COM RATING: 9.2/10.
SEQUEL IDEA: A Horrible Bosses + Set It Up crossover film in which Rick gets what he deserves.
SHOULD YOU WATCH IT?: Absolutely! And don't put it on in the background while you do laundry or something — save it for when you have time to sit down and give it the attention it deserves.
