One of  the slips-under-everyone’s-notice Netflix exclusives, That’s Amor follows a thirty year old looking for opportunity only to be disappointed.

That’s Amor (2022) Netflix Film Review

On the eve of her thirtieth birthday, Sofia (Riley Dandy) is an overworked assistant to a career woman who doesn’t give her a second glance. With graphic design talent no one notices, just when she gets up the courage to try and pitch her content, her boss fires her. Making everything ten times worse is additional change that means she moves back home with her mother. Now her days are attending her mother’s Zumba class and wallowing in self pity.

With persistence, her mother gets her to a cooking class where she meets Matias (Isaac Gonzalez Rossi). Spanish and just visiting, he’s an immediate no, despite her mother’s nudges. Truth is, everyone knows Spanish guys are players she tells her. But in need of healing, Sofia just may find a good omlet may have more persuasive power than she expects.

Likely not one of the Netflix movies that really got a lot of press or promotion, That’s Amor is one of those cute Hallmark-esque (story wise) productions. Some won’t care for Sofia since she is kind of defensive and a little bit salty for the start. Of course, she has reasons for this and does come around, but sometimes viewers are more annoyed than charmed.

I don’t like some of the script using this as a chance to harp on men and the female perception that they require certain things, and essentially that they aren’t worth anything. But surprisingly, the film also has some moments that take me by surprise with how tender and charming they are. It’s a mixed bag of good and mediocre, but in the end, some of those sunny moments we love to see in a romance do shine.

It’s not the best of its genre. Yet I’ve also seen worse. That’s Amor is likely going to put a smile on your face. Some nights that’s more than enough.

You can stream this film exclusively on Netflix

Content: someone finds their live in cheating. He walks out the door with his underwear on and covering himself with his hands. We also see a bare-bottomed woman sneaking out the window in a button up shirt and bra. There’s a suggestion a couple spends the night together. There’s minor same sex couple characters if that bothers you. There is some profanity, mainly more “crude” references and some commonplace words. The film is TV-14.
