People Are Loving Netflix's New Cheesy Christmas Rom-Com Holidate Starring Emma Roberts
It's 2020 and if there's one thing we can all agree on is that we could all do with a pick me up. After all the horror movies, Unsolved Mysteries and true crime dramas maybe we should add a cheesy romcom to lift our spirits into the mix?
It seems like the new Netflix film Holidate could do just that, based on the Twitter reactions from those that have already watched it (in some cases, several times).
What is it about? Sloane (Emma Roberts) and Jackson (Luke Bracey) hate the holidays. They're eternally single and are constantly being judged by their respective meddling families. When they meet in true rom-com fashion they decide to be each other's plus ones for each holiday celebration over the course of the year. Sounds like a cute deal, right?
Well as it turns out it seems like lots of people on Twitter may be in the market for a holidate. One Twitter user said: "go watch Holidate on Netflix & be a corny, hopeless romantic like I am."
Another Twitter user confessed: "I need me a Holidate... being single ain't it."
One user said the film was "the exact level of cheese I need in my life right now," and a user responded to this tweet with: "Watched it last night... felt the same. I need a HOLIDATE in my life." Similarly, another person confessed: "I need a holidate... a date just for holidays so my family can stop asking me why I'm still single."
