But Always Be My Maybe is a better movie in terms of its writing and performances.
Written by Ali Wong (Baby Cobra), Randall Park (Fresh Off the Boat) and Michael Golamco (Please Stand By), and starring Wong and Park in the leads, Always Be My Maybe is a fresh, charming and laugh-out-loud amusing rom-com.
In addition to "Always Be My Maybe", Buteau hosts "Late Night Whenever With Michelle Buteau", and will be seen in Netflix's coming series "Tales From the City" and BET's "First Wives Club".
While Sasha is engaged to her manager Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii 5-0), and living a frantic Hollywood life, Marcus is happily content living at home and working for his dad during the day, and playing music in his hip-hop fusion band at night, all while still driving the same auto he drove in high school 15 years earlier. Oftenleft alone as a child, Sasha found a second home in Marcus' family and even learned the joys of cooking from Marcus' mother.

"There are so many things", she says about the script.
"By the time Nahnatchka Khan's breezy directorial debut "Always Be My Maybe" offers up a hearty wink at "Pretty Woman", the Netflix original feature has already earned its stripes as the online streamer's next great rom-com".

For all that, Always Be My Maybe isn't just here to be a representation touchstone. Some occasionally choppy editing doesn't help with the overall look and tone of the film, but all of this is of little effect.
The Netflix movie "Always Be My Maybe" is being released today on the streaming service. They've stayed friends since, remaining in each other's orbits as Wong made waves in the standup circuit and Park carved out a name for himself as an actor in film and TV. But she immediately hooks up with another guy (Keanu Reeves of the "John Wick and Matrix" films). It all adds up to a rom-com I can't wait to revisit. Just as he's getting the courage to tell her how she truly feels, he'll have missed his opportunity. Wong and Park get the recipe just right. None of this will be unfamiliar to genre connoisseurs, but what sets Always Be My Maybe apart from the pack is the fact that the main characters are relatable, fully realized human beings and not archetypical sketches and walking cliches. "When we sat down with him, he had so many amusing ideas and thoughts on how to approach it". Wong's character echos those sentiments to some degree, but her character is so focused on her career that professional and romantic failure aren't options in her mind.
Park chimed in, "He was quoting lines from her special". None of that is really made text in the film, and his cameo is ultimately slight, but the film is still one of the better romcoms made in recent years, and smarter when it comes to its characters, too.
"He improvised lifting me up, and that was even more exciting than kissing Keanu", Wong said.
