I’ve always had a soft spot for cheesy rom-coms. Sure, they're formulaic and filled with overused clichés, but as long as they're wholesome and they pass the Bechdel test, I can pretend that it’s normal for an ordinary woman to fall for a wealthy stunner who also happens to be royalty.
So, you could imagine my excitement when I first learned that Netflix was working on a Hallmark-style romance movie, starring none other than Nickelodeon alum Victoria Justice. Called A Perfect Pairing, which drops tomorrow, this feel-good flick follows Lola Alvarez (Justice), an ambitious L.A. wine-company executive who quits her job to follow her dream of launching her own wine business. But to make this a reality, she travels all the way to a small town in Australia in order to win a major client called Vaughn Family Wines.
Naturally, it turns out to be way more than she bargained for. When she initially gets turned down, she insists on sticking around to prove herself by working on the family’s sheep farm. During her stay, she starts to bond with her reluctant guide and station manager, Max (Adam Demos), and…well, you can guess what happens next.
