Prepare yourselves – your new favourite comedy is about to drop on Netflix. The streaming service released a teaser for the upcoming rom-com Always Be My Maybe starring comedian Ali Wong and Randall Park which also announced the release date in May. 

Set to Mariah Carey’s song on which the movie title is based, the film gives serious late ’90s and early ’00s fashion, haircuts and dance moves. The movie explores the premise of “the friend zone” and the comedic pairing of Wong and Park makes it all the better.

In Always Be My Maybe, childhood friends Sasha (Wong) and Marcus (Park) have a falling out and don’t speak for 15 years. But when Sasha, now a celebrity chef in Los Angeles, returns to her hometown of San Francisco to open a new restaurant, she runs into her old pal, a happily complacent musician still living at home and working for his dad. Though the two are reluctant to reconnect, they soon find the old sparks, and maybe some new ones, are there.

The movie is directed by Nahnatchka Khan and written by Wong, Park and Michael Golamco. The cast also features Keanu Reeves, Daniel Dae Kim, Michelle Buteau, Vivian Bang, Karan Soni, Charlyne Yi, James Saito, Lyrics Born, and Susan Park.
