“The Bottom of the Family” is the romantic comedy of the moment on Netflix, with Joey King, Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron to carry this new creation of the platform.

The Underside of the Familynew romantic comedy with Joey King

Several actors and actresses have seen their careers explode thanks to Netflix. Like Millie Bobby Brown thanks to Stranger Things and who continues to work in platform productions. In the same genre, we find Joey Kingwho saw his notoriety change with The Kissing Booth (2018). The film, adapted from the eponymous novel by Beth Reekles, was such a success that the actress reprized her role in two sequels released in 2020 and 2021. Three years later, Joey King is back on the streaming service and visibly the public didn’t forget her. In fact, Netflix has put online The Underside of the Family on June 28, and the new comedy quickly found itself at the top of the most-watched films on the platform at the moment.

The film had several arguments to attract subscribers with, in addition to Joey King, the presence of Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron. A rather clever casting to attract a wide audience and different generations of spectators.

An expected success on Netflix

In The Underside of the FamilyZac Efron plays Chris Cole, a Hollywood actor used to starring in blockbusters. A real star like his interpreter. Obviously, like any celebrity, Chris has an assistant. The latter, Zara Ford, is played by Joey King. She is the one who has to put up with his behavior selfish, immature and unsympathetic. She clearly doesn’t think highly of her boss, but at least benefits from a separation between her professional and personal lives. That is, until Chris meets his mother, Brooke (Nicole Kidman), who is struggling to find inspiration to write. A woman clearly the polar opposite of the little girls that Chris hangs around.

The Underside of the Family ticks the boxes of romantic comedy and does not seek to surprise. So, when Chris sends Zara on an errand for him in the middle of the night, and asks her to bring him back “something cool, something different and something he might like“, we understand what will happen when the actor meets his assistant’s mother. Namely the beginning of Zara’s nightmare, who after having finally decided to resign so as to no longer support Cole, will find him at her house following a combination of circumstances.

Without revolutionizing the genre, The Underside of the Family has plenty to amuse and entertain, largely thanks to an endearing Joey King and a self-deprecating Zac Efron. A type of high-end TV movie which, without being memorable, has everything to suit Netflix subscribers.
