krpdimitra - 4 January 2023 On my rewatch list! I had a blast watching Rosaline. Such a sweet combination of comedy and romance, and such an interesting plot as well. It was already very smart to adapt Romeo and Juliet this way, but what really got me was that the dialogues and the whole direction were incredibly witty, in a fascinating way. I must also mention the on-point performances of Kaitlyn (Rosaline), Sean (Dario) and Kyle (Romeo), even though the entire cast was great. All in all I found the movie very charming. It stole my heart from the beginning and it's definitely gonna be one of these movies that I go back to now and again to spend a fun and relaxing couple of hours. Highly suggest it!
eliara371 - 3 November 2022 10/10 for being a teen rom-com This is a rom-com for teenagers, and family friendly. I mean it isn't the best movie ever, but it definitely is top of the rom-com teen movies I have seen. SIDE NOTE, it still is a comedy, it ain't meant to be dark, or portray reality. It is great for what it is. The jokes landed, the characters was likable, aswell was the story. Be aware, if you are not the target audience, then you won't like it. Not a fan of people messing with classics, literary work that made milestones in history. Everyone that says this is a renewed Romeo and juliet should find themselves at the bottom of the garbage can. But this ain't trying to be put together with the original. It is like comparing the romance level of shrek and the notebook. But it is okay to take inspiration and make a really fun lighthearted movie. It is not meant as a remake. It is a standalone world that kids will enjoy watching. At least I did. There was obvious diversity put in there, both cast/characters and jokes, but the movie was not meant to be a realistic or true portrait of that time, which really shows (I mean it wasn't the fairest times exactly). This movie was meant to be enjoyable.
