Anyone but You is a Classic Style Rom Com

“Anyone but You” is a refreshing 2000s style romcom.

“Anyone but You” is a movie that was released on Dec. 22, 2023. The two main characters are played by actors Sydney Sweeney as Bea and Glen Powell as Ben. Another notable actor in the movie is Darren Barnet, who is most known for his role in “Never Have I Ever.”

One thing that is appreciated in the movie is how it was a breath of fresh air because of the way it was written, the dialogue especially. Most movies nowadays try to use slang and almost always end up misusing it. Movies also tend to try and dress their actors in ‘trendy’ clothing which also ends up not looking good. “Anyone but You,” though, has great dialogue and costumes which are fitting to each character.

“Anyone but You” was also well casted. Sydney Sweeney looks like she just walked out of a rom-com from the 2000s with her wavy blonde hair and bright blue eyes. Glen Powell also looks like the classic love interest. It’s obvious the directors and writers tried to recreate the same feeling that a classic 2000s rom-com had. Like Kat and Patrick in “10 Things I Hate About You,” the makers of “Anyone but You” did a great job of conveying that feeling of the “opposites attract” trope. At first, they dislike each other and have a hatred for one another. Then the two main characters have a fight midway through the movie, but eventually they make up and realize they are perfect for each other.

Overall, “Anyone but You” is an amazing movie, in every aspect, down to the casting and the soundtrack. It’s perfect to watch with a group of friends or for a fun movie night too.
