Netflix's Newest Teen Rom-Com Is … Actually Really Good?
I wasn't expecting much from the film Along For the Ride, considering the stream of teen snoozers Netflix has slapped onto its lineup in recent years. I assumed cheap chuckles, uninspired direction and slapdash writing would surely be on the menu, topped with desperate efforts to wedge in some Gen Z lingo. Another boy-meets-Addison Rae cash grab that fails to excite even its target demographic.
But no. Barely two minutes into this film, releasing May 6, I remembered: This is Sofia Alvarez we're dealing with.
