The romantic comedy on Netflix, A Perfect Story follows the budding romance of two individuals from very different backgrounds. Margarita Ortega, the inheritor of a valuable hotel empire, escapes her wedding and leaves her partner Fillipo behind. David, an immature man working three jobs and still figuring himself out, has been dumped by his partner Idoia in another part of Spain.

When the two complete strangers come in contact and unintentionally cross pathways, they realize that the other person might be their finest opportunity to reconcile with their ex-partners. However, after Margo and David realize they fit each other like a puzzle, their lives become more complicated.

The romantic comedy, A Perfect Story delves into themes like romance, friendship, adventure, and familial ties. As the show progresses, it also explores a friends-with-benefits situation with a rather predictable ending.

The Netflix show uses rom-com clichés. A classic rom-com can be entertaining to watch, however, the few modifications the show makes to the plot to make it unique are terrible. The show has virtually nothing of value to add to the genre and, as a matter of fact, it lingers for a long time in the stage of a love story that the majority of rom-coms should, and appropriately, skip over.

The characters of A Perfect Story are rather one-dimensional, and they never really break out of their moulds. Furthermore, none of the characters are particularly endearing. Both the male and female protagonists are portrayed as weak people. The protagonists are confused, anxious people who show no character development throughout the show.

To make matters worse, the show’s content is mediocre at best. The writers conveniently write off Margot and David’s partners as selfish, condescending, and hurtful characters in order to justify both protagonists’ affairs. A show is more intriguing when its characters are morally grey. However, demonizing other characters to defend the actions of the main character is a poor plot device.

Although the actors give decent performances, the tale is silly, predictable, and morally dubious, and the majority of viewers won’t be interested in it despite it having merely five episodes. A Perfect Story falls short of its title, offering a dull romance devoid of creativity, morality, and passion. This one is definitely worth skipping over owing to its poorly developed characters and weak plotline.
