Friends Alice and Ben decide that to get through the hectic wedding season they will be each other's Plus One. But is love on the cards for the two of them? A very modern, funny movie that delivers more than expected from a rom-com.

Weddings feature heavily in romantic comedies and Plus One is no different. Thankfully though, this is a little edgier with less rom and more com.

What Is Plus One About?

The story follows two longtime single friends, Alice and Ben (Jack Quaid), who have been buddies since college. Alice has recently broken up with her boyfriend and Ben is in pursuit of his perfect one true love.

During one particularly hectic wedding season, the friends decide they are sick of being at the singles tables and opt to be each other's Plus One. Cue a series of very funny speeches and boozy parties as the weddings take place.

Alice plays wingman to Ben, trying to set him up with various women while she comes to terms with the fact that her ex has moved on.

However, after one particular wedding night, the two hook up and decide that they will try to make a go of it. But will it last?

Is Plus One Worth Watching?

Plus One is a really clever comedy. Maya Erskine (Casual) plays Alice to perfection as a normal, everyday woman who is devoid of all the Hallmark features we usually associate with female rom-com leads.

Because the twist in Plus One is that it's Ben who is the one looking for love and a happy ever after.

As well-matched leads, Erskine and Quaid's chemistry is great and believable. That is because the script isn't contrived, and their conversations are exactly how you would expect them to be.

There is no slapstick or eye-rolling stupidity, and the added touch of real wedding speeches was genius.

Casting for Plus One is spot on, but a lot of the credit for how good this film is has to go to Jeff Chan, who wrote it, directed it and produced it (with Andrew Rhymer).

Overall, Plus One is a funny movie about two friends looking for love with a bit of will-they-wont-they thrown in.

A refreshing change for fans as it transcends genre clichés of the genre and not too dissimilar to the equally excellent Destination Wedding with Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder.
