I Made Up A Pretty Great Netflix Original Movie And I Want You To Cast It

Be my casting director!

The other day, a friend and I were talking about how helpful yet potentially disastrous it would be if your friends joined you on every date you went on, and helped you to evaluate them afterwards in a quest to find the perfect partner!

Think about it – you go on your date as per normal, a couple of your friends sit discreetly on a table beside you and then after you're done you all decide if the date was a success or not.

Then we thought, wouldn't that be a fabulous Netflix movie? Think Someone Great or Isn't It Romantic.

Yes, yes it would I hear you cry!

So here am I, humbly asking you to join me as I cast the parts I've come up with for this goofy romantic caper.

  1. Starting with our hero – the likeable gal who just can't seem to land the perfect partner. Who would you cast?
