Anyone But You Soundtrack. Released in December 2023, takes audiences on a hilarious and heartwarming journey of love, mistaken identities, and second chances.

Directed by Will Gluck (“Easy A,” “Friends with Benefits”), the film is a modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing,” but with a fresh, contemporary twist.

The story revolves around Bea (played by the ever-engaging Sydney Sweeney) and Ben (portrayed by the charming Glen Powell). After an electrifying first date, their connection abruptly sours due to a misunderstanding.

Fate, however, has other plans, throwing them together again at a stunning destination wedding in Australia. To avoid awkward encounters and social pressures, they hatch a scheme – pretend to be the perfect, loved-up couple.

As the charade unfolds, sparks begin to fly again, this time amidst the sun-drenched beaches and vibrant Australian backdrop. The movie masterfully navigates the comedic chaos of their fake relationship, showcasing hilarious situations and witty banter between Bea and Ben.

Their undeniable chemistry sizzles on screen, leaving the audience captivated by their emotional tug-of-war.

The supporting cast adds depth and humor to the story. Alexandra Shipp (“Love, Simon”) shines as Bea’s supportive best friend, while GaTa (“Dear Evan Hansen”) brings comedic relief as Ben’s loyal confidante. Dermot Mulroney and Rachel Griffiths add a touch of parental wisdom and guidance, rounding out the ensemble with seasoned performances.
