Accidentally Engaged (2016)

Accidentally Engaged is a 2016 romantic comedy about a little white lie that snowballs into a hilarious (and maybe heart-warming) adventure. Here’s the gist: Clarissa, an aspiring actress struggling to make it in Hollywood, heads back home for her friend’s wedding. Feeling insecure about her life, she tells a white lie to her friends – that she’s dating the famous actor, Chas Hunter. The lie spreads like wildfire, reaching the ears of the media and even Chas himself. To save face from a bad photo leak, Chas proposes a deal: he’ll pretend to be Clarissa’s fiancé if she helps him cover up his own scandal. This begins a whirlwind of fake dates, staged paparazzi moments, and navigating the world of celebrity life – all while trying to keep their real feelings in check.

Accidentally Engaged is a classic rom-com with all the usual tropes: mistaken identities, forced proximity, learning to love the real person beneath the facade. It’s got lighthearted humor, charming characters, and a predictable (but satisfying) happily-ever-after.
