Always Be My Maybe

The best comedies on Netflix right now 11

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.
