At first glance, the movie is about two overworked assistants who scheme to pair up their demanding bosses — seems like yet another cheesy romantic comedy yet the movie done it in a very tasteful way.
If you’re a Netflix subscriber, chances are you’ve seen a promo for “Set It Up,” which follows Harper (Zoey Deutch) and Charlie (Glen Powell) as they try to get their high-powered bosses (Lucy Liu and Taye Diggs) to date each other. Liu plays Kirsten, a successful ESPN sports reporter running a digital start-up; Diggs’s Rick is a venture capitalist and kind of a jerk. You can probably guess what happens next, and that’s totally okay because the movie is just delightful and full of witty conversations.
