By Catholic News Service

Pleasantly compact romance in which the author of a best-selling self-help book (Shemar Moore) and a therapist (Nadine Velazquez) clash over what she considers his pat answers to life’s complicated dilemmas. Their snappy exchange goes viral and they’re launched on a nationwide media tour — as well as a relationship.

Director and co-writer Youssef Delara avoids life’s uglier aspects, making this enjoyable escapist fare for grown-ups.

Implied non-marital sexual activity, light banter, fleeting rough language. The Catholic News Service classification is A-III — adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 — parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
