What to know

critics consensus

Playing It Cool pits Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan's easy chemistry against a screenplay that tries too hard to be quirky and clever, and the results are disappointingly lukewarm. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Playing It Cool

  • Oct 25, 2015
    Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan star in the quirky romantic comedy Playing It Cool. The story follows a struggling screenwriter who falls for a young woman at a charity gala and attempts to formulate a friend that soon grows into something more. Evans and Monaghan have good chemistry together and handle the comedy quite well. However, most of the jokes are hit and miss; particularly the reoccurring gag of Evans imagining himself in the stories that people tell him. Additionally, a lot of the characters are underdeveloped, which hurts the plot. While it delivers some laughs, overall Playing It Cool is a rather formulaic and uninspired comedy.
