Your Place Or Mine - What We Know So Far

These days the, romantic comedy is not exactly the go-to hit machine it has traditionally been in Hollywood. But that's hardly deterred studios and streamers from cranking out lovey-dovey flicks full of laughs on a surprisingly steady basis. Netflix has, of course, been one of the more frequent producers in the rom-com game in recent years (per Insider). And the streaming titan has proven the genre still has legs, even if fans opt to march in the cinematic love parade in the comfort of their own home.

That being the case, Netflix will stay the course on the rom-com front for the foreseeable future. The streamer looks to be stepping things up significantly for 2023 with the release of a high-profile romantic comedy fronting a pair of the genre's most prominent players. The new film is called "Your Place or Mine." Here's everything we know about the project so far.

Who is starring in Your Place or Mine?

As for the romantic comedy all-stars taking the leads in "Your Place or Mine," they're none other than Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher (from "That '70s Show"). And if you doubt the rom-com cred of either, one look at their respective IMDb pages will surely change your mind. Still, if feels like it's been a long time since either had a legit hit in the genre, and they're likely banking on their combined star power to get as many eyes as possible on "Your Place or Mine." If you're a gambling sort, you'd probably be crazy to bet against that approach not paying off in the streaming realm.

Either way, "Your Place or Mine" producers only bolstered their odds by surrounding Witherspoon and Kutcher with a seriously impressive supporting cast. And that notable group boasts the talents of Steve Zahn, Tig Notaro, Rachel Bloom, Jesse Williams, and Zoe Chao, as well as "WandaVision," and "The Book of Boba Fett" newcomer Wesley Kimmel.  

When will Your Place or Mine be released?

The list of on-camera talent for "Your Place or Mine" is quite impressive. So is the behind-the-camera crew, with Reese Witherspoon producing the film alongside Jason Bateman. The film was also written and directed by Aline Brosh McKenna. While you may not know her name by heart, McKenna's resume is every bit as impressive as her "Your Place or Mine" stars, with the filmmaker fronting writing credits on elevated rom-com staples like "The Devil Wears Prada," "27 Dresses," and "Morning Glory." She also penned 2021's "Cruella" and co-created The CW cult hit "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend." 

Those titles alone should have any rom-com fan hyped to see what McKenna and company deliver with "Your Place or Mine." Thankfully you won't have to wait too long to see as Netflix is releasing the film on February 10, 2023. And that Valentine's Day-friendly date will no doubt ensure legions of lovers will spend the holiday "Netflix and chilling." 

What is Your Place or Mine about?

With the release of "Your Place or Mine" right around the corner, we already have a solid idea of what Aline Brosh McKenna has in store for Reese Witherspoon, Ashton Kutcher, and their esteemed co-stars. Given its headliners, "Your Place or Mine" will be undoubtedly steeped in the late-90s and early aughts energy. But McKenna may be seeking to subvert that energy with a more modern take on the genre formula. Per the film's synopsis, Witherspoon and Kutcher play Debbie and Peter, longtime friends who seemingly took things well past platonic when they first met.

Two decades later, Debbie (now a single mom) lives in Los Angeles, while the perpetually single Peter calls New York home. When Peter needs to head West for business, he offers to look out for Debbie's teenage son Jack (Wesley Kimmel), so she can take a life-break back East. As Peter bonds with Jack, the plot thickens considerably when Debbie begins seeing the hunky Theo (Jesse Williams). That twist soon leads Debbie and Peter to question whether their friendship might not be something more. 

Is there a trailer for Your Place or Mine?

As far as rom-com plots go, that one sounds more intriguing than most. And even if the story of "Your Place or Mine" clearly requires its stars to spend much of the film apart, its first official trailer proves Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher have considerable on-screen chemistry. And as far as the duo not sharing the screen for much of the action, the trailer also proves that chemistry will still be front and center by way of split-screen conversations.

Per the trailer, "Your Place or Mine" opens with the duo chatting via FaceTime. In that conversation, we discover their decades-long friendship began with a decidedly intimate one-night encounter. Soon enough, Debbie is on her way to New York, with Peter heading west to hang out with her son Jack. From there, we see many pretty people hanging out in lovely places and doing pretty things. The action will undoubtedly get a little ugly when Peter and Debbie are forced to deal with their obvious affection for each other. But if rom-com history has taught us anything, it's that things will work out beautifully in the end.
