I Want You Back
Anti-rom coms have a special place as a subgenre for people going through breakups. Amazon’s I Want You Back is one of those anti-rom coms that arrives just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Jenny Slate and Charlie Day headline as the stars in the film about two people attempting their exes back.
The film also stars Scott Eastwood, Manny Jacinto, Clark Backo, Gina Rodriguez, Mason Gooding, Dylan Gelula, Jami Gertz, Isabel May, and Luke David Blumm. Jason Orley (Big Time Adolescence) directed the film from the screenplay written by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger (Love, Simon, This Is Us).
Here is the full synopsis:
Peter (Charlie Day) and Emma (Jenny Slate) are total strangers, but when they meet, one thing instantly bonds them: they were both unexpectedly dumped by their respective partners, Ann (Gina Rodriguez) and Noah (Scott Eastwood), on the same weekend. As the saying goes, ‘misery loves company,’ but their commiseration turns into a mission when they see on social media that their exes have happily moved on to new romances, Anne with Logan (Manny Jacinto) and Noah with Ginny (Clark Backo).
Terrified that, in their 30s, they have lost their shot at happily ever after and horrified at the prospect of having to start over, Peter and Emma hatch a desperate plot to win the loves of their lives back. Each will do whatever it takes to put an end to their exes’ new relationships and send them running back to their arms.
