Rom-Com “Anyone But You” is a total crowd pleaser

The Sony Pictures release “Anyone But You” is both a hot at the box office and a hit with Lightridge students. Photo courtesy of Sony Pictures.

In Sony Pictures’ romantic comedy “Anyone But You,” Beatrice and Ben realize they have an instant connection on their first date but their outing ends badly. After fate brings them together for a wedding in Australia, they have to pretend to be together to avoid chaos and keep their families off their backs.

The movie, directed by Will Gluck, has grossed over 100 million since it hit the theaters on December 22, 2023.

Glen Powell as Ben and Sydney Sweeney as Beatrice are both excellent and the supporting cast leaned into their roles and brought the movie to another level.

This movie was filled with comical scenes that had us cackling in the theater. The sincere and heartwarming plot made us feel lucky that we were able to watch it. This movie filled us with joy and we would have never expected this would become one of our all time favorites.

Not only did we love this movie, these reviews help show that the Lightridge community agrees that it’s a must watch.

Reagan Hwang (freshman): “Anyone But You is the best rom-com that has come out since How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days”

Avery Robinson (senior): “This movie was very well acted and it was one of the best classic rom-coms”

Aidan Ulery (junior): “Normally I don’t watch rom-coms but my sister made me go with her and I don’t think there was a point in the entire movie where I wasn’t laughing.”

Reese Vanhorn (senior): “Anyone But You is a heartfelt film that beautifully captures the complexity of relationships. It’s a very well crafted storyline and amazing performances make it a must watch!”

Cooper Gaull (sophomore): “Anyone But You” was one of the best movies I’ve watched because it was super funny and the chemistry between the characters didn’t seem like acting. There hasn’t been a feel good movie in a long time so it was fun to watch.”
