Love Hard

Love Hard ★★½

I genuinely laughed at least twice, which is better than expected for a generic Netflix Christmas rom-com.

The main issue is that the main character is shallow and insufferable. I'm all for flawed protagonists but she's so annoying that I had a hard time rooting for her. Everyone else is more likable, especially the family of Jimmy O. Yang's character. James Saito deserves to have a more robust career.

The only character in the love triangle (ish?) who is an honest good guy for the whole movie gets short shrifted. If this is going to be a feel-good movie, I could have used one more scene of Tag making the Olympics or something. Justice for Tag!
