Together Together is the latest charming and cute comedy that’s sure to leave you in a good mood. Ed Helms and Patti Harrison star as co-leads in this warm and wholesome movie that’s not like your conventional rom-com. The film follows a single man named Matt in his 40s (played by Ed Helms). Matt wants a child, and to become a single father, he turns to surrogacy. The surrogate mother-to-be is a young loner named Anna. The two strangers soon strike a friendship and a platonic relationship. Deviating from the conventions of romantic comedies, the film contends with empathy and perception of boundaries. Ed Helms brings his usual comedic brilliance and delivers a charming and fun performance. Patti Harrison brings her comedic chops as well, playing her part with brilliance. The rest of the cast also brings top-tier comedic and warm quality to their performances.
The film has received generally positive reviews. Critics have noted the film’s refreshing take on the main relationship dynamic. The usual route for the rom-com is to have the characters fall in love every step of the way. Every film falls to the same tired tropes of melodramatic and nonsensical relationships. And although Together Together has a fair share of rom-com tropes as well, it does things a bit differently. It’s also smart, feel-good, and hilarious at times. The main relationship between Matt and Anna is platonic and doesn’t turn into a bloated love relationship. The film is also not stuffed with cringe style of comedy that American comedies are proficient in. This one is sure to leave you to feel uplifted and jolly through its matured sense of friendship and comedy aplenty.
