The plot of the movie centres on Ezra Cohan (Jonah Hill) and Amira Mohammed (Lauren London), who fall in love after a rideshare mix-up in Los Angeles.

At the core of the movie, the plot centres on the romance between a white Jewish man and a Black Muslim woman. With comedy movies typically ending with happiness and victory, we’re pretty sure that these two characters will overcome all hurdles to be together and forge an enviable life ahead.

And as with previous comedy movies on the same topic, such as The Lovebirds, Something New and The Hundred-Foot Journey, the message of togetherness and «against all odds» is what we want to see when it comes to normalising interracial relationships.
