  • Past the performances, the remarkable part of Always Be My Maybe is how the film inhabits Asian-American culture.

    June 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Always Be My Maybe has that made-for-the-small-screen quality, almost a movie but not quite-it feels rushed, rough and a bit too casual, as if the script needed just another draft or two.

    June 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • It's not new, but it's just as powerful (and, yes, still funny) as it ever was.

  • Netflix seems to have found its true purpose in original movie programming over the past year: clever, endlessly meme-able rom-coms meant to be watched on the floor in your weird pajamas.

  • Rather, the screenplay - which was co-written by Wong and Par.k, with help from Michael Golamco - settles into a relaxed groove that allows its main characters to play at what they do best

    May 31, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Always Be My Maybe hits all of the beats we have come to expect yet fails to do so well enough, as if the mere existence of a technically well-structured romantic comedy is better than nothing.

Audience Reviews for Always Be My Maybe

  • Jun 15, 2020
    This movie is…cute. That's really the best way I can put it, it's just a cute movie. It's a good date movie. There's enough for you and your date to like, it's romantic, it's funny, it's leads are likable, and it does what it needs to do. I'm glad it was put on streaming, because I would not want to pay theater prices for it, but for what it is it was a nice way to spend an evening. Was there anything that stood out about it? Well there is an absolutely stellar cameo by Keanu Reeves that completely steals the movie. Seriously it feels like they just asked him to join and let him loose, and it's kind of amazing. Other than that, it's mostly an above average rom-com with a good amount of chuckles and likable stars, but really that's all you need from a rom-com, and it delivers. It's a marshmallow movie: not much to it, but it's light, fluffy, and makes you feel good,

    Park and Wong's chemistry is electric and Reeves' extended cameo is just fantastic.

    Drags a bit in the 2nd act, but the leads chemistry and the wonderful surprise cameo more than make up for it.

    Ali Wong and Randall Park sparkle together in this cheesy, yet surprisingly delightful rom-com. Always Be My Maybe is unapologetic, charming and filled with heart to the core that will leave audience with warmth and laughter by the end of this Netflix original. 3.98/5
