Your Place or Mine Review: Scant Chemistry in Cross-Country Romance

Your Place or Mine has Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher as longtime besties discovering romance after a cross-country housing swap. The saccharine-sweet plot never leaves a doubt to the happy ending. That fulfills standard romantic-comedy expectations, but there's a nagging technicality. The film overdoes split screen editing and graphics to visually aid the separation motif. This results in the protagonists having scant chemistry because there's literally a dividing line between them. Fluffy extraneous characters, meaningless subplots, and a long runtime further weaken the romance. I did enjoy the rocking soundtrack chock-full of The Cars' classic hits.
