All in all, Through My Window was a darker, sexier take on the teen romance trope and it had a lot of merits. I liked its ending more than the likes of The Kissing Booth, in fact. No cliffhangers — just two young adults secure in their love, being brave and mature about their choices. Its not the classic happy ending but it was the perfect one for Ares and his witch.
All in all, The Perfect Date was not a groundbreaking addition to the rom com genre but it managed to deliver on a light and entertaining movie that inspired the happy feels. It knows its place in the general scheme of things and was content to serve its purpose. It had relateable characters, imperfect ones and ones that are still finding their way. At the end of the day, aren’t we all just looking for purpose like Brooks was?
