Maybe I Do 2023 Movie Review
Maybe I Do is kind of a comedy of errors that arise from the complicated relationships of two couples. Michelle and Allen are a couple and planning to move forward in their relationship and take the next step. In other words, they want to get married, but before they finalize anything, they want their parents to meet and get to know each other’s family. Very Father of the Bride, right? Well, what they don’t know (but will eventually find out) is that their parents know each other quite well. And not in a social or friendly way.
As it turns out, and as is shown in the trailer, the parents have been having an affair with the other’s spouse. Ergo, their opinion of marriage as a concept and of their children’s decision of getting married is not quite as the kids expected. As the get-to-know dinner starts to fall apart, the parents must figure out the best way to hide their secrets from their children and possibly help the kids with their decision to get married. But will they be able to keep up with the façade or will the night turn into everyone’s worst nightmare? For that, you’ll have to watch the movie.
Michelle (Roberts) and Allen (Bracey) have reached the point in their relationship where they are considering next steps. They decide to invite their parents to finally meet and to offer some understanding of why marriage works. Turns out, the parents already know one another quite well, which leads to some differing opinions about the value of marriage.
Movies and shows like Book Club and Grace and Frankie have established that romantic comedies are not limited to younger couples and the endless complexities of their relationships. Maybe I Do joins that expanding list of raunchy senior comedies, bringing a refreshing touch to the content in this genre, as many fans would agree. Written and directed by Michael Jacobs, Maybe I Do follows a young couple, Michelle and Allen, who are planning to get married. As a step in that direction, they invite the parents to meet and get to know each other. What they don’t know is that their parents already know each other, but not in the way their kids expected.
The romantic comedy movie reunites Richard Gere and Diane Keaton, who last shared the screen in the 1977 crime drama film Looking for Mr. Goodbar, as well as Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey, who were last seen together in the 2020 Netflix holiday movie, Holidate. With a star-studded cast and a hilarious storyline, Maybe I Do promises to bring you a cheerful start to 2023, something we’re all looking forward to, and we can’t wait to see all the fun and drama unfold. So, while you wait for the movie to arrive at the theaters, read on to learn all the revealed details about the plot, trailer, release date, cast, characters, and everything else we know so far about Maybe I Do.
The official trailer for Maybe I Do is more than what you would have expected when the movie was first announced. Although the two and half minute video reveals the plot, you can expect the real surprise of the story to unfold in the events that follow, for which you’ll obviously have to watch the movie. The major characters seem to be full of fun and charm, with a hint of spice, especially the leading ladies with their signature performance styles, which makes the plot quite intriguing. Most importantly, the trailer shows that this isn’t the kind of rom-com that you generally expect from senior actors and that’s what makes this movie exciting and unique in its own right. Expect plenty of laugh-out-loud moments as well as dramatic ones in what is sure to be a great watch for fans of the genre.
