"Charmingly funny. Not a cliché comedy at all. A little heavy on the Uber references, but still a movie that can be watched multiple times. (Saw at a pre-screening in Seattle.)"

"A truly funny and immensely heartwarming _While You Were Sleeping_-esque romantic comedy. It's actually not fair to compare this to any other film because the story here is wholly real and not fabricated for the screen.

Good humans won't support such barbaric people. It's a shame that American Academy Awards recognised it. Only best thing in the film were the Holly "

"Good watch, probably won't watch again, but can recommend if you can handle a medical emergency adventure. If you've seen "A Fault in Our Stars", this has a similar vibe for a lot of it. I'm a fan of Kumail Nanjiani, and I like Emily Gordon more, I'm honestly a little disappointed she didn't star in her own story, but I understand her reasons. Zoe Kazan, Ray Ramono and Holly Hunter are great in this, they all felt very natural. Now, I know Kumail is the lead, and a good portion of the"
