I’m a sucker for romantic comedies, so I was excited to receive a review copy of Everybody Loves Somebody. I’ve been a fan of Karla Souza and her work on How to Get Away with Murder so, I thought it would be refreshing to see her in this role.
About Everybody Loves Somebody:
Karla Souza stars as Clara, a young single doctor who has everything she wants — except love. Invited to a family wedding in Mexico, Clara convinces a charming coworker to pose as her current boyfriend—only to run into her old flame at the festivities. Now, with a little help from her colorful family, Clara must choose between two men — and two futures — in this delightful romantic comedy.

I’m just going to start by saying that I fell in love with Ben O’Toole! To be honest I usually don’t fall for the good guy character, but he was smart and strong. I didn’t feel sorry for his character and I loved that about this film. That being said Jose Maria Yazpik’s character was just as likeable, not a bad guy at all. You honestly felt her conflict when choosing between these two men. Souza’s character has some serious flaws, but you love her just the same. This was fun romantic comedy with some life lessons tossed in that we can all learn a lesson from as well. The one thing that I was not prepared for was that a lot of the movie was in Spanish. Subtitles appear in both Spanish and English. Even with the two languages the movie was easy to follow and honestly the subtitles forced me pay attention to every detail. I didn’t want to miss a thing. My son even watched it with me and he agreed that subtitles were not distracting, but actually enhanced the movie. A large part of the film takes place in Mexico. I enjoyed it.
