EVERYBODY LOVES SOMEBODY arrives on DVD, Digital HD and On Demand June 20

A decision between a past romance and a new love must be made when the endearing romantic comedy Everybody Loves Somebody arrives on DVD, Digital HD and On Demand June 20 from Lionsgate. Karla Souza stars as a successful career woman who convinces a charming coworker to pose as her boyfriend for a family wedding but is caught off-guard when her old flame shows up. ”A rom-com with bite” (Jeannette Catsoulis, The New York Times), the movie premiered to critical acclaim at the 2017 Palm Springs Film Festival. From one of the producers of Instructions Not Included, Francisco González Compeán, the Everybody Loves Somebody DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.

Karla Souza stars as Clara, a young single doctor who has everything she wants — except love. Invited to a family wedding in Mexico, Clara convinces a charming coworker to pose as her current boyfriend—only to run into her old flame at the festivities. Now, with a little help from her colorful family, Clara must choose between two men — and two futures — in this delightful romantic comedy.

My Thought

In Everybody Loves Somebody, Clara has a problem. She has to go back home for a wedding, but she's not looking forward to seeing her family. As a successful doctor, her job has been her main priority, and it has left little time for romance. She knows her nosy family will nag her about her single lifestyle, so she asks a co-worker to be her date and pretend they are in a relationship. Some sparks actually fly between them, but then Clara runs into her own boyfriend and things heat up there too. Now Clara has to choose between the two guys, and everyone in her family has an opinion about which one is right for her.

This was a really cute film, though perhaps a little predictable. While I'm usually not a huge fan of love triangles, the humor in this one makes it well worth the watch. The actors all did a great job. It's a fast faced comedy that will make you laugh out loud,  but there are definitely some sweet, romantic moments as well. Definitely a recommended flick for romance lovers.
