A new romantic comedy movie ‘Your Place or Mine’ is releasing on Netflix this February, also four days before Valentine’s Day. Aline Brosh McKenna directed this movie, the plot of which revolves around two best friends.
Debbie and Peter live in LA and New York, respectively. Their friendship is twenty years old now. From the trailer, it is found that their acquaintance began with them sleeping together, though later on, they turned it into a strong friendship.
Debbie and Peter are vastly opposite to each other, Debbie being a single mother craving routine with her son and Peter living a colourful life in New York.
Where Debbie’s dating life is a graveyard, Peter thrives like a playboy. But when Debbie wishes to pursue a lifelong dream, Debbie and Peter decide to swap homes for a week. As Peter deals with the hard job of looking after Debbie’s son and forms a connection with him, Debbie meets a man in New York who becomes interested in him.
But when she informs Peter about her new date, Peter realises that he has feelings for Debbie, which is more than a strong friendship. As Debbie and Peter confront this new realization, their lives change with new choices.
