‘Your Place or Mine’ Trailer: Reese Witherspoon, Ashton Kutcher Romcom

2 min read

When Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher announced they would be co-starring in a Netflix rom-com, a generation of moviegoers were excited at the idea of ​​two of the genre’s most bankable stars teaming up for the first time.

That movie is “Your Place or Mine,” and Netflix has released the first trailer previewing the pair’s on-screen chemistry. Witherspoon and Kutcher star as Debbie and Peter, who have been best friends for 20 years after a “memorable” first meeting (read: one night stand).

“Do you remember the night we first met?” Witherspoon’s Debbie asks early in the clip, as the two reminisce over the phone. “Never stops being weird,” Kutcher’s Peter replies, and they laugh at the memory.

Despite their obvious early chemistry, things are now strictly platonic between the two. That makes sense, considering they’re complete opposites: she’s a single mom who wants routine raising her son Jack (Wesley Kimmel) in LA; She is a New York-based marketing executive who thrives on change.

When they swap houses and lives for a week, they discover that what they want may not be what they really need, according to the film’s synopsis. Then, once Debbie hooks up with a handsome stranger (Jesse Williams), the “friends” realize their friendship can always be the foundation for something more.

Directed by screenwriter Alain Brosh McKenna (“The Devil Wears Prada,” “27 Dresses,” “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”) and in his feature directorial debut, the movie also stars Joe Chao (Peter’s estranged neighbor who becomes Debbie’s confidante and wingman), Tig Notaro (Debbie’s best friend, who eventually advises Peter on what to do when he realizes he might have feelings), Griffin Matthews, Rachel Bloom, Shiri Appleby, Vela Lovell, and Steve Zahn.

Produced by Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan for Aggregate Films as part of their first-look deal with Netflix; Witherspoon and Lauren Neustadter for Hello Sunshine; and Brosh McKenna for his Lean Machine banner.

“Your Place or Mine” premiered on Netflix worldwide on February 10, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
