The Hating Game: Austin Stowell And Lucy Hale In A Steamy Romcom!

One requirement for a hot sentiment is The Hating Game’s all-around appeal. The Hating Game is an adapted version of Sally Thorne’s smash-hit novel. It combines an office relationship with a foes-to-sweethearts sentiment. It is a rom-com that plays with two adored classification phrases. The Hating Game is a lighthearted comedy featuring a couple of delightful characters in a tame sordid romance.

What’s The Story?

The Hating Game is based on author Sally Thorne’s best-selling debut romance book. It is an enemies-to-lovers story of two Manhattan publishers’ assistants who are Lucy Hutton (Lucy Hale) and Joshua Templeman (Austin Stowell), who can’t bear one other at first. They work for publishing firms that are being compelled to consolidate. Lucy is creative, too giving assistant to Helen (Sakina Jaffrey), the literary, art-driven assistant, while Joshua is the intimidating, type-A assistant to Bexley, the commercially driven chauvinist (Corbin Bernsen). When the employers announce the creation of a single managing editor post, Lucy and Josh both declare their intention to apply for – and get – the job. As their competition intensifies, the two realize that their encounters are fraught with sexual tension.

The connection between Lucy and Joshua is undeniably beneficial, as it reflects a genuine real-life friendship between actors Lucy and Austin. Since the unexpected (and tragic) termination of The CW’s Katy Keene, I’ve missed seeing Lucy Hale on my TV; her position as Lucy allows her to fill the sharp-tongued shoes of another lovable character.

I’m not sure how closely this adheres to the original story, but it’s an entertaining watch. Take your cynicism elsewhere, cynics—The Hating Game is a lighthearted romantic comedy that radiates charm. It is never more than the sum of its components. In this day, I think that keeping it basic while adding plenty of sweetness is something to be applauded. There are worse ways to spend two hours. I’ll be watching with bated breath to see what Lucy Hale does next! When it comes down to it, hate and love are comparable feelings, and The Hating Game should elicit solely a love reaction from a romantically-deprived crowd.
