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

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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
