The Hating Game, Must See Rom-Com on Hulu

The Hating Game on Hulu this is filled with comedy, drama, and romance. This movie is rated R
and it is 1 hour and 42 minitues long it also was released December 10th 2021.

The cast includes Lucy Hale as Lucy Hutton, Austin Stowell as Joshua Templeton, Kathryn
Boswell as Mindy, Damon Daunno as Danny, Corbin Bernsen as Bexley, Sakina Jaffrey as
Helene, Nicholas Baroudi as Patrick, Yasha Jackson as Julie, Sean Cullen as Anthony, Brock
Yurich as Mack, Kevin Carrigan as Simon, Shona Tucker as Jeanette, Nance Williamson as
Elaine Templeman, and Tania Asnes as Annabelle. It was directed by Peter Hutchings.
Two businesses join together to make a new company because of budget cuts. Lucy and
Joshua compete for the job position that they want as writer and chief. Lucy starts a ruthless
game to try and get the job. This rivalry soon turns into a complicated attraction towards Joshua.
Rotten tomatoes gave this movie 70% and audience score 77%. One critic said “Utterly boring
and predictable. The two never hated each other, just were competing while liking each other. A
classic example of why so few rom com movies are being made for the big screen these days.
Even if you know the couple will get together there ought to be real tension – something real
that needs to be overcome before the final – We are together – kiss. Call me when they make a
movie where unexpectedly the sweet guy turns out to be the one that lights your sexual
candle. Happens in real life all the time. or when there’s a REAL issue keeping the couple
apart. until then the rom com genre is dead and should just stay on Hallmark with the other
paint by numbers no talent in writing scripted TV movies. Won’t change anytime soon either with
all the four and five stars given out by some to unmemorable predictable movies like this one.”

I personally loved this movie because of the romance and the comedy. I love how they end up
together and how Josh’s dad realizes how great of a son he is.
