The Perfect Date is a Netflix film starring Noah Centineo and Laura Marano and is rated TV-14.

To be completely honest, after reading the little description that Netflix provides and watching the preview, I believed The Perfect Date was going to be another cheesy rom-com about a boy who was going to go on a date with a perfect girl, only to realize that the girl wasn’t so perfect, which would lead to him choosing the girl we all knew he was going to fall in love with at the end—which is pretty accurate. I am a sucker for rom-coms, so I didn’t mind watching the movie, but I truly think the film ended up being so much more than that.

Noah Centineo has now starred in several Netflix teen rom-coms, with his most notable role being Peter Kavinsky in To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Image courtesy of Google Images.

Most teenagers are too caught up with being what everyone else wants them to be, and that stops them from being the person they actually want to be. It’s a problem that many teens can relate to, even without realizing. The Perfect Date is probably one of the most relatable movies I’ve ever seen. Although it may be a cheesy rom-com at times, the storyline portrays a great message to teens.

I will say most movies don’t really conform to reality; however, The Perfect Date does. The movie follows the life of a teenage boy struggling to survive through his last year of high school while facing obstacles most of us actually go through. Even though the movie has a fairytale kind of ending, the scenes leading up to the ending seem to be extremely realistic. This movie is sure to make you laugh, maybe even cry (if you’re like me), and make you say “Relatable.”

I highly recommended this movie if you’re ever bored and in need for something to watch. The Perfect Date earned at 5/5 in my book for the realistic content and pretty great acting. Netflix really stepped up their game with the movie and I’m looking forward to seeing more entertainment like this.
