It’s refreshing to see a charming, yet honest romance that pays homage to iconic titles like Carmen Jones. (Expect a few easter eggs.) And we love that it shines the spotlight on a woman in her 40s.
But for a rom-com, it definitely could’ve delivered more laughs. Quite a few of the jokes fall flat, while some are amusing enough make you smile at most. But thankfully, there are a few scenes that include Jenna’s outspoken friends (played by La La Anthony and Aisha Hinds), who are genuinely laugh-out-loud funny.
This aside, The Perfect Find does a stellar job of shedding light on what it’s like to rebuild a career while navigating a complicated love life. And if you ask us, Union and Powers are an unstoppable duo.
