Star Rating: 3/5
Netflix's latest original offering, "Someone Great" revolves around Jenny(Gina Rodriguez) who's dumped by her long-term boyfriend after she accepts a job offer in a different city.
She then recruits her two best friends - Blair(Brittany Snow) and Erin(DeWanda Wise) - for one last outrageous adventure in New York City before she moves to San Francisco to further her career as music journalist. And while the storyline seemingly leans towards a rom-com, "Someone Great," is more of a female-led, somewhat rushed comedy.
The script is witty, and we each of the characters deal with different issues in their lives before coming out on top. But in its entirety, the plot is disappointingly crammed into one day. And while we do see more of storyline as flashbacks, there are some scenes that seem a little over-the-top, especially since the protagonist - who loses her 'will to live' and looks for comfort in any form of intoxication after her nine-year relationship with Nate((Lakeith Stanfield) comes to an abrupt end - comes full circle in 24-hours.
