The Other Zoey Movie Review:-
With its delightful and simple plot, The Other Zoey will bring you back to the nostalgic tones of romantic comedy films. While the picture is mediocre, spending a few hours with its characters does not appear to be a waste of time. The film contains traditional rom-com characteristics, such as a female lead who does not believe in romantic love and believes that two people only get together when their interests align, eventually leading to a complex predicament in which the heroine must make difficult choices.
This film also makes light of the numerous clichés present in films of this type. This romantic comedy is best defined as a lighthearted viewing that doesn’t tax your intellect while still managing to make you grin with its plain approach.
The plot revolves around Zoey Miller (Josephine Langford), a Queens University computer science student. Zoey, who rejects the concept of romantic love, believes that compatibility is what keeps a relationship going. Elle (Mallori Johnson), her college roommate, is the polar opposite, frequently crying when watching Julia Roberts romance Hugh Grant in Notting Hill.
When Zach (Drew Starkey), the collegiate football star, gets involved in an accident and develops amnesia, he begins to believe Zoey is his girlfriend. When she joins Zach’s parents on a ski trip, things become more complicated. During the holiday, she meets Miles (Archie Renaux), Zach’s cousin, and begins to suspect that he could be the man for her. However, when Zach’s girlfriend, Zoey Miller, re-enters the MacLarens’ lives, Zoey Miller is forced to confront some difficult decisions and finds herself at a crossroads, needing to make a decision.
Josephine Langford gives an honest portrayal as Zoey, a driven student prepared to go to extreme lengths to succeed. She portrays a character with many sides, which requires her to be intellectual, melancholy, amorous, and disillusioned by her own love life.Drew Starkey, who plays Zach, also excels in a role that requires him to be absorbed by his love of football.
He is well aware that, despite his real interest in the game, he will never become a professional, which makes him concerned about his future prospects. Mallori Johnson as Elle, Zoey’s best friend in college, practically steals the show from the rest of the cast. Her energy and zeal for life are contagious and have a great impact on everyone around her. Andie MacDonald and Patrick Fabian, who play Zach’s parents in the film, do an excellent job as well.

By any stretch of the imagination, this picture ends up being fairly superficial. However, the wonderful chemistry between the characters and the plot’s straightforward honesty make it highly intriguing. Zoey’s relationship with Zach and Miles appears to be quite natural, as she handles each of the lads differently. The dormitory sequences between Zoey and Elle are one compelling reason to watch the film; they are truly the film’s best. One can’t help but wish that the film had spent more time focusing on their friendship.
The Other Zoey does not claim to be a cinematic classic, but it does provide a story that is likely to resonate with today’s age. It’s not a great film, but it doesn’t disturb you either.
