#Moonshot was more enjoyable than I thought it would be. Somehow both vibrant and warm. The unexpectedly strong comedic and romantic chemistry between Cole Sprouse and Lana Condor makes it. Sure, it’s predictable; it’s a romcom. But it’s a comforting time.March 31, 2022

In all honesty, who doesn’t love a good romantic comedy? We definitely do, and Moonshot is sure to check all the boxes from those cheesy but lovable relationship tropes to those relatable character moments. Plus, viewers get transported to space right alongside Sprouse and Condor.
The film is now streaming on HBO Max so be sure to sit back, relax, grab some popcorn, and fall in love with Sophie and Walt!
