Glen Powell and Sydney Sweeney star in the Aussie rom com Anyone But You. The film has created quite a buzz since its trailer drop, for reprising the enemies-to-lovers trope.
Anyone But You will be hitting the theatres on December 22, 2023. But it has been creating quite a stir among viewers by promising a tantalizing watch, brimming with sensuality and fun. The trailer had been received well by lovers of rom com but had also been criticized for looking shallow and lacking proper chemistry between the lead pair.
Directed by Will Gluck, the film is based off the renowned Shakesperean play Much Ado About Nothing, which is reflected in the names of our protagonists, Bea and Ben, from Beatrice and Benedict. However, how far the similarities go is for the viewers to piece together.
X netizens, however, have already begun sharing their views and opinions regarding film. There were many who were pretty excited to give the film a try. One even predicted the film exceeding the audience's box office expectations.
As Romantic Comedy has diversified into varying shades and fusions with other genres, the original craze for films like Clueless and 10 Things I Hate About You has lessened but not vanished.
Anyone But You works on the enemies-to-lovers trope and brings back the excitement people felt while watching predictable actions emotively executed by actors, making them willingly suspend their disbelief to bask in the magic and wish it were real.
But how far were they successful? Though there were several viewers, who were mainly in for the eye candy that Glen Powell and Sydney Sweeney undoubtedly are.
But there also was a huge chunk of X users who enjoyed the film on its own merit.
No film has ever won every heart, and Anyone But You is nowhere near to becoming an exception. There were some twitteratis who found the film not to their taste and were not hesitant in vocalizing it.
