She’s best friends with Peter, who she slept with on the first night they met – however, he told her he couldn’t have a relationship with her or anyone else. It was the beginning of a close friendship – or is it something more?

In a press release, Brosh McKenna said: “I have thought of Reese for everything I’ve ever written. I can’t think of a movie that I’ve written that I didn’t send to her. In addition to being very appealing, she is very funny, very smart, a great producer and a killer actor.”

Discussing why he took the role, the star said: “Romantic comedies are some of my favorite movies. When you read one that has a unique take and a unique perspective, you just know it. This script had its own voice and its own tone and its own vibe.

“Plus, any time I was thinking about doing a romantic comedy, I would always ask if Reese was available because I had wanted to work with her my entire career. The irony, of course, is that I didn’t really work with Reese during this film; we have two scenes together. So, she still has never worked with me and doubt she ever will again.”

Zoë Chao plays Minka, a “former girlfriend of Peter’s who unexpectedly appears at his apartment the night Debbie arrives”, and quickly befriends her.
