For the first time ever, Your Place or Mine brings together much-loved rom-com actors Reese Witherspoon and Ashton Kutcher for this romantic comedy about two best friends.

Your Place or Mine follows best friends of over 20 years, Debbie (Reese Witherspoon) and Peter (Ashton Kutcher) who are total opposites. Debbie craves routine with her son Jack (Wesley Kimmel) in LA, while Peter thrives on change in the fast-paced city life of New York.

But, when they swap houses and lives for a week, they discover what they really need rather than what they might want.

Here's the star-studded cast of Your Place or Mine...

Reese Witherspoon plays Debbie, a vigilant safety-conscious single mom who lives in Los Angeles with her son, Jack (Wesley Kimmel). Both her and Jack live a structured life controlled by rules and regulations, but this soon changes when Debbie travels to New York for work.

She leaves her LA lifestyle in the hands of her long-time best friend Peter (Ashton Kutcher). Will her outlook on life change once she experiences the city?

Oscar-winning star Reese is one of Hollywood's most successful actresses, with well-known roles in Legally Blonde, Big Little Lies, Cruel Intentions, Little Fires Everywhere as well as producing Hello Sunshine and Where the Crawdads Sing.

Ashton Kutcher as Peter

Ashton Kutcher stars as Peter, an aspiring writer who loves the fast-paced life New York City has to offer. He's unattached, with the only consistent relationship in his life being his 20-year long friendship with Debbie. 

However, hiding beneath his cool exterior is a deep vulnerability and he lacks confidence to pursue his dream of becoming a writer. Could a week looking after Jack change his perspective?

Ashton shot to fame in 1998 as Michael Kelso in the sitcom That '70s Show and has since become a powerhouse within the rom-com genre, starring in No Strings Attached, What Happens in Vegas, Just Married and Valentine's Day. He's now set to reprise his role of Michael Kelso for a guest stint in That '90s Show.
