      My Girlfriend's Boyfriend

      PG 2010 1 hr. 24 min. Romance Comedy List
      Reviews 47% 1,000+ Ratings Audience Score When Ethan (Christopher Gorham) arrives at the airport just in time to declare his undying love for his girlfriend, love appears to have conquered all. The scene, however, is really the ending of Ethan's novel, which his agent (Carol Kane) calls "unrealistic." Ethan soon meets a waitress, Jesse (Alyssa Milano), and falls in love with her despite her growing devotion to Troy (Michael Landes), a charming businessman. But the line between reality and fiction becomes increasingly blurred. Read More Read Less Watch on Fandango at Home Premiered Apr 04 Buy Now

      Audience Member this whole romance story is entirely dedicated to formula you do have likeable leads though its got a light, sweet, sour taste and isnt too cruel they actually do have a cool twist going on here the music is pretty soft too giving 'My Girlfriend's Boyfriend' a warm, fuzzy tone just dont expect anything new or groundbreaking here it'll make you feel good after thankfully Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/21/24 Full Review Katie H So many romcoms have such a predictable plot. I felt this was different than so many I have seen. I enjoyed that. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/06/23 Full Review Brian T Honestly, the twist at the end sucked out all of the emotional gravitas that this movie was building up to… really made me feel like i just wasted 90mins of my emotions once the plot twist ‘revealed' it's truth to us… ugh Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review danielle r I recommend this to everyone who likes romcoms. I found it totally original and very sweet, and I never saw the end coming. PS- apparently if you don't watch it to the end you'll hate Alyssa's character. I promise if you see it though, it will all make sense. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Charming quirky rom-com. Lovingly photographed and an above average script. Definitely a passion project but one with decent production values. Definitely worth 90 minutes of your time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Spoiler Alert: This movie is not about a girl dating two men at the same time. The movie begins with Ethan meeting his publisher who counsels him to write something realist but infuse a better beau into story: someone successful, charming, good looking -- unlike him (in her opinion). Next, he meets Jesse who tells him to write a story about a boy walking into a cafe meeting the most amazing woman. He also takes her advise. Notice how similar Ethan and Troy are to one another, only Troy is supposedly the one whose "made it". Also notice, you never see Troy meet any of Jesse's family but you do see Ethan meet her family. That is because, her relationship with Troy isn't real. It's the story he is writing that is a beefed up parallel to real life. The only real timeline is Jesse and Ethan. You may have had a difficult time picking that up, because he didn't change Jesse in the story because she's "perfect" and Troy was Ethan's idea of a more successful, interesting, charming version of himself. In conclusion, Jesse wasn't dating two men. She was only dating Ethan and she broke up with him because she couldn't have kids and due to her divorce, she thought either it would be a deal breaker or he would stay with her and give up on having kids and neither option was appealing. Like I've said, this is a very clever movie and if you're only skimming the surface of the movie, it's easy to see a girl dating two guys, professing her love to both with one waiting to get his heart broken. But really, its more about the power of love to inspire us to be our bravest and best selves for ourselves and those we love. I can't over estimate the refreshingly surprised I was to enjoy it as much as I did. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
