Always Be My Maybe

The best comedies on Netflix right now 1

Always Be My Maybe stars Ali Wong and Randall Park as Sasha and Marcus who have not been in touch since a brief teenage fling ended badly. Sixteen years later, the two reconnect when celebrity chef Sasha returns to San Francisco to open a restaurant. While their romantic feelings for each other remain, Marcus’ fears and Sasha’s fame and demanding career challenge their potential new relationship.

Co-written by Wong, Park, and Michael Golamco, the Nahnatchka Khan-directed movie has been praised by critics for its whip-smart writing and undeniable chemistry between the two leads. Though Always Be My Maybe takes familiar rom-com beats, it cunningly layers in social commentary about the Asian-American movement in Hollywood, setting it apart from other modern rom-com flicks.
