In case you've been looking for the great American female-led comedy to obsess over with your girlfriends, Netflix has your back with Someone Great. If you're into hilarious movies with a touch of heart — and one that focuses more on the beauty of female friendship to get you through tough times, rather than a new love — this flick is for you. And while the plot alone is enough to pull me in, the cast of Someone Great is about as all-star as any movie can get and I'm totally here for it.
Someone Great is MTV’s Sweet/Vicious creator Jennifer Kaytin Robinson's directorial debut, with Bridesmaids alum Paul Feig co-producing, in a movie that truly celebrates the power of friendship. The official Netflix description of Someone Great reads:
Aspiring music journalist Jenny (Gina Rodriguez) has just landed her dream job at an iconic magazine and is about to move to San Francisco. Rather than do long distance, her boyfriend of nine years (Lakeith Stanfield) decides to call it quits. To nurse her broken heart, Jenny gathers up her two best friends Erin (DeWanda Wise) and Blair (Brittany Snow) for one outrageous last adventure in New York City. Someone Great is a hilarious and heartfelt story of friendship, love, and what it means to let go of your twenties and enter adulthood.
So here is the starting lineup of this fantastic flick:
