Audience Reviews for Love Life: Season 1

    I will watch almost anything with Anna Kendrick in it, but this was an abomination. It's just one bad scene after another as she tries to carry a bad cast and worse writing. It's also telling that one of the critics who liked the show said it was a pretty enjoyable 8 episodes when it's a 10 episode season.
  • Apr 24, 2021
    it was great seeing Anna Kendrick shine in this role. I thought the show handled the various storylines very well.
  • Mar 14, 2021
    So great! So relatable and well written! Don't understand the critics reviews!

    10-part series on a woman's quest to find love in NY, with surprising twists and turns along the way, including the different ways we can love other people beyond romantic love. It's not Sex in the City - the show is not afraid to explore darker issues like addiction. Even with the darker subjects it brings laughs and charm, especially from the two leading ladies: the always great Kendrick and the actress who plays her fun but lost best friend. The ending was a bit flimsy, but all in all it's a worthwhile show.

    Overall I did like the show and enjoyed the ending. It was entertaining but the more I think about it I realize a lot of parts of the show they could have done better on. I do feel like Anna Kendricks character is a little bland but I'm wondering if it's just her acting that makes me feel that way.. There were a few silly details they left out that I wonder if other viewers noticed. (Spoilers!!!) For example.. I like Sarah but thought the rehab part seemed slapped on.. I kinda feel like the show set it up to sound like she was just going through a phase but maybe I misunderstood. I feel like there were many situations like that, that felt slapped on the show that didn't quite build up to the situation that happened. I was a little confused with The Magnus marriage.. seemed odd but it was a good story I suppose. Also- what happened the the kitten!? Lol

    Love Life is a fantastic, and albeit very realistic, take on what it is like being a woman in the dating world in your mid twenties. With a great cast and an even better soundtrack, this HBO Max feature is a perfect watch for any woman seeking something relatable, and also moderately encouraging. Though the issues addressed in the series are not for the faint at heart, viewers will find comfort in subjects that are seldom spoken of in typical media. Love Life addresses relationships that just aren't meant to last, relationships with people who just don't quite *get* you, relationships with narcissists who ruin your self-image, relationships that make us feel uncomfortable, relationships that bite off more than they can chew, relationships with parents that just weren't quite there, and even relationships with friends that simultaneously uplift and destroy us. The main character's story is presented in a way that I think a lot of us ladies in modern society can relate to. We're faced with the way that we have gone about handling our heartbreaks (both in love and in life) before we were equipped to deal with them in a healthy way. We're faced with the character making tough decisions about who to love, and who to leave, both in romantic and platonic relationships. We follow the main character as she learns about herself, and about how she projects her own darkness and insecurities into her relationships. We follow her as she learns, and as she heals. We're taken on a journey as she makes a series of choices, some good and some questionable, that are all very relatable. I think it's great to have a series like this for our viewing pleasure, because we're living in a society where the issues addressed in this lighthearted millennial drama are issues that we are taught to sweep under the rug. And, in doing so, we are taught that having issues like this (while entirely common and normal) are shameful problems to be ignored. When really, these are the issues we learn the most from when we take a closer look. Absolute must see!

    Love Life is an HBO MAX series staring Anna Kendrick about a number of relationships she has encountered during her life. Each episode Anna meets a different gentleman who she presumes is the love of her life. We see her meet her first love in high school till the point she has a baby and figures she doesn't need to find love that love will find her. This anthology romantic comedy journey with Anna takes her thru her insecurity 20's to being a mom and an art curator in mid 30's. While her life was in control, her best friend Zoe Chao's life was spiraling out of control. Some of the guys included Scoot McNairy, Nick Thune and Jin Ha. Hope Davis played Anna's self centered mother. Overall great series about love lost and love gained thru friendships and aspersions.

    Cute, smart writing and great chemistry among the actors.

    Can't understand why the critics don't love this. Funny, honest, engaging story of love and friendship in NYC. Can't get enough.
