  • Netflix’s latest original feature isn’t going to blow the doors off your house, but that’s not what it’s geared for. Instead, "Set It Up" is a silly, light-hearted, rom-com that’ll take you on an amusing ride all the way to the end. Lead by Zoey Deutch ("The Year of Spectacular Men") and Glen Powell ("Hidden Figures"), Set It Up isn’t the tale of young love taking hold; rather, it’s the story of two individuals desperately trying not to lose their minds as their domineering bosses, played by Lucy Liu ("Lucky Number Slevin") and Taye Diggs (Fox’s "Empire"), disrespect and demean them at all hours of the day. The story may play fast and loose with ethics, but that’s not why we watch. We watch to see if they can get away with it and maybe find a little peace of mind for themselves along the way. Thankfully, the script by first-time feature writer Kate Silberman combined with hilariously engaging performances from the cast – main and supporting – make "Set It Up" a fun little flick that twists expectations enough here and there to make it memorable.
