The Perfect Date is a cheesy teenage rom-com movie at its finest, with moments that are bound to make you laugh-out-loud.
This post for The Perfect Date contains spoilers, but TBH spoilers don’t really mean anything for rom-coms.
The Perfect Date (2019, directed by Chris Nelson), originally called The Stand-In, is based on the novel of the same name (referring to latter title) by Steve Bloom. It is the third teenage rom-com movie from Netflix that features matinée idol Noah Centineo. It follows the character Brooks Rattigan (Centineo) who is trying to save up money to go to Yale University; with the help of his coding genius best friend Murph (Odiseas Georgiadis), Brooks starts to get hired by women of all ages through the app (The Stand-In) to be a stand-in date for them—and no, he’s not prostituting himself.
