Genre-based storytelling has a long history in cinema, with many of the greatest films owing many of their narrative angles to those found in their genre’s past. Horror, action, and sci-fi are some of the genres that come to mind. But perhaps in modern film, one genre stands out above the rest in terms of generic success, and that is the rom-com. Countless moviegoers throughout the world will cherish a film from this genre, whether it’s Richard Curtis’ About Time, Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up, or an old Hollywood classic like Howard Hawks’ Bringing Up Baby.

Your Place or Mine: Everything you need to know
Your Place or Mine, directed by Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada, My Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), follows two best friends, Debbie (Reese Witherspoon) and Peter (Ashton Kutcher), who met in the early 2000s after playing poker one night. Hitting it off right away and showing fans a taste of the cringe-worthy chronology with Pop-Up Video-type labels across the screen, the two clearly demonstrate to the public they have palpable chemistry, as they can’t keep their hands off each other.
Fast forward 20 years and the duo are still closest friends, staying in touch through digital technology such as FaceTime and “good morning” texts. But will they find what they want and end up together? Well, you’ll have to watch the film to find out. Meanwhile, check out the official synopsis for the film below:
Debbie (Reese Witherspoon) and Peter (Ashton Kutcher) are best friends and total opposites. She craves routine with her son in LA; he thrives on change in NY. When they swap houses and lives for a week they discover what they think they want might not be what they really need.
