Fans of The Holiday will find familiarity in the premise of Netflix's Your Place or Mine. The new movie follows best friends Debbie (Reese Witherspoon) and Peter (Ashton Kutcher), who swap houses for a week and live in each other's worlds because Debbie wants to fulfill her dream of taking classes in New York, so Peter flies to Los Angeles to care for Debbie's son, Jack.
Your Place or Mine has been one of Netflix's most anticipated films of 2023, not only because it unites two of Hollywood's beloved stars, but also because it boasts a screenplay from Aline Brosh McKenna, who has penned rom-com faves like The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses and Morning Glory (oh, and this film acts as McKenna's directorial debut).
So, the question remains: Does Your Place or Mine hold up next to McKenna's classics? In the end, it certainly does, but not for the reasons you might think. While Debbie and Peter's romance may have been advertised as the central aspect of the story, it's actually not at all...but this turns out to be a good thing. Keep reading for our full review.
