Movie Info

Mark and Mary, acquaintances from college, run into each other at a drug store as Mary is buying a pregnancy test. The test is negative and the two wind up dating and rapidly falling for each other. Mark has a more traditional view of relationships and Mary's view is more modern and progressive. They try "ethical non-monogamy" at Mary's request, and create their own version of an open relationship, while also trying to balance their fledgling careers and friendships. Through a series of ups and downs, Mary starts to realize she's more traditional than she thought whereas Mark starts to open up and see the world differently through Mary and a polyamorous lens.

Critic Reviews for Mark, Mary & Some Other People

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (5)

Marks is a sharp and funny observer of today's youth paradox: How can her generation build stability on a foundation of temp jobs, shifting social mores and the suspicion that the entire planet might collapse before they cash in their 401(k)s?

The film remains amusing and spry even as it coasts along a path that will feel familiar to most rom-com fans...

Top Critic

It's like being invited to a feeble Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice-themed party that fizzles.

June 23, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Hannah Marks' sophomore outing continues to show her keen eye for amusing relationship dramas, but there's artifice in its bigger ideas.

June 14, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

"It's so fresh and so funny in its first hour or so, in fact, that it's a real bummer to watch it all fall to pieces in the home stretch, with a pivot into drama that's too much, too fast."

June 12, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

After starting out as a clever and somewhat progressive spin on millennial relationships, this low-budget romantic comedy turns labored and predictable.
