Zoe Vergara, Reporter

     The movie “The Perfect Date” starring Noah Centineo and Brooks his character is about how he wants to get into Yale University and in order to do that he has to have a great resume. The problem is nothing sets him apart from everyone else. Also, he does not have much money to pay for college either.

     One day as Brooks is working his job making sandwiches, a popular, rich classmate comes in talking about getting paid to escort his cousin to a dance. And then it hits him.  This is how he can make money to chase his dreams. And he then creates an app called the Stand-In. The Stand-In was an app that allowed teen girls to customize their dates. Brooks can be anything they want him to be. Cowboy? Empathetic listener? Amazing dancer?

     Brooks character is portrayed as an ambitious young man ready to change the world even if he does not have an exact vision for it. Throughout the movie Brook struggles to find himself and who he is as an individual but always acting as what people wanted him to be.

     The film really has a lot of lessons one which is everyone is different in their own way and that you must be accepting of everyone.

     This TV-14 Netflix original is aimed squarely at teens and young adults. It is built up of romance and comedy as well. Relying on the built-in appeal of teen stars Noah Centineo, Disney Channel’s Laura Marano and Riverdale actress, Camila Mendes, they all are such great actors and have a lot of experience.

     Noah has starred in other teen romantic movies as well. Such as “To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before,” “Sierra Burgess is a Loser,” and “SPF-18.” All great romantic, Netflix Original movies Noah Centineo has starred in.

     The Perfect Date is at times fun , with likable actors and relevant messages. Teens learn the importance of chasing their dreams, accepting who they are and pursuing real joy instead of the superficial kind.

     But there are some mature themes here too, as well as sexual relationships and language issues that is also portrayed throughout the movie. In the end Netflix’s latest teen-focused movie is definitely something I would watch and I definitely would recommend to you. Even though it is a bit cheesy it has a great lesson behind the story. About finding who you are and what you want to pursue.
