Michelle (Emma Roberts) and Allen (Luke Bracey) look like they would be great together. But the young couple’s relationship has reached a turning point. They love each other very much and can’t think of being with anyone else. The problem is that Allen is happy with how things are, but Michelle is ready to move on. Allen is scared that they will lose what they have. Michelle thinks that getting married is the best way to show how committed you are, and that’s what they’ve been working toward.
After Michelle gives Allen an ultimatum, both of them go home to talk things over with their parents. And now things start getting silly. Even though they’ve been together for a long time and are very serious about it (they’ve even talked about getting married), their parents have never met, even though they live in the same city. Formally, because both sets of parents are having affairs with each other and have no idea that their kids are dating. So, when Michelle and Allen decide to talk to their parents about their big decision over dinner, the movie turns into a comedy of errors.
Even though the setup is definitely corny, “Maybe I Do” never turns into the overly sentimental mush that many rom-coms do. Jacobs’ script has a lot to do with it. But how things are done is just as important. Michelle’s mother Grace is played by Diane Keaton, who is bubbly but lonely. Michelle’s father Howard is played by Richard Gere, who has all the signs of a midlife crisis. Susan Sarandon plays Monica, Allen’s mother, who is a shark. William H. Macy plays Sam, Allen’s father, who is a gentleman and a romantic at heart. Visit o2tvseries for free movies streaming.
