Just before Labor Day weekend, Netflix gave the world a little present in the form of a rom-com called Falling Inn Love. It stars Christina Milian (yes, of “Dip It Low” fame) as Gabriela, who, after losing her job and boyfriend, enters an online contest to win an inn located in New Zealand. She wins and uproots her life, only to find that her inn is completely run-down. So she enlists the help of a hunky contractor, Jake (Adam Demos), to restore the property to its former glory. Along the way they fall in love.
Twitter is absolutely buzzing over this movie and its many rom-com tropes. “#FallingInnLove is filled with every possible cliché, and I loved every second of it,” one person wrote. Another added, “I am watching Falling Inn Love, and it is like a 90s sitcom for 2019, complete with at least one actor who absolutely cannot act under any circumstances but is very nice to look at. I am having a lovely time.”
Check out some more reactions to the movie, below:
In an interview with Glamour, Milian shared her feelings on rom-coms and basically zeroed in on everything that’s good about Falling Inn Love.
“I don’t know if there’s anything unlikable about rom-coms,” she said. “Keep showing the muscles on the guys. Give me more muscles. Give me more bickering. Give me more hot chocolate. I love it all. There’s nothing I wouldn’t take away from any romantic comedy.”
These reactions prove people are having fun watching Falling Inn Love, which is exactly what Milian wants. “I hope [people] like it enough they want to watch it over and over again,” she also told Glamour. “I love making movies that become family traditions or something people go back to. I hope Falling Inn Love is that type of film.”
