Trust me, boyfriends come and go, but if you’re lucky enough to have some great friends, I would hold on to that. Agreed right? Well, I’d say yes to? And if you believe in it, you’d know that friends are not supposed to be taken for granted.
However, Wesley Darya doesn’t really know that. She’s caught in her own mess, and she believes that having a guy could fix it all. She tried blind dating as suggested by one of her two best friends Brooke, but didn’t work out. However, she somehow accidentally comes across the perfect guy, but as perfect as he is, he likes all things perfectly. So, the imperfect Wes pretends to be perfect. Her two best friends advice her to be herself but she didn’t listen.
But Mr. Perfect ghosts her for five days, and she goes into the depressive mode. Her friends come over to cheer her up and after they get drunk, they write a mean email to him. However, soon after he calls mentioning that he is in a coma in Mexico.
So to delete the email, she and her best friends go to Mexico and the adventure, as well as her blind date, follows. Desperados is about friendship, and how being desperate isn’t the right way to find love for oneself.
You can chase love all you want, but at the end of the day, love finds you in the most unexpected ways. And yes, in the process of finding love, make sure you don’t forget the importance of your best friends because they are the ones who will stay for life.
A typical Chic flick, Desperados is a one time watch, however, if you’re a rom-com lover like me, you’ll find the plot repetitive. There’s nothing extremely original here, which was kind of disappointing for me. But, romcoms, in general, are supposed to be predictive.
If you’re looking for a non brainier, funny, and emotional Netflix flick, Desperados is your best bet, however, keep your expectation bar slightly low.
