The Valet puts an ordinary guy in a fake Hollywood romance

There have been so many different romantic comedies that we know how they’re gonna go, and the ending is almost never in question. Hulu‘s new movie, The Valet, flips the switch a bit by showing us a couple that is pretending to be in love. That’s not a stretch for Samara Weaving’s Olivia, since she’s one of the most famous actresses in the world. As for Antonio (Eugenio Derbez), he’s just an ordinary guy who finds himself in the wrong place at the right time.

In the first trailer for The Valet, we see how Antonio enters Olivia’s life. He simply crashes his bike into her car, just as Olivia is having a bad fight in public with her married boyfriend, Vincent (Max Greenfield). Olivia can’t be completely shallow, since she shows compassion for Antonio after his tumble. But when the paparazzi catch the three of them in a single image, it exposes the fact that Olivia is seeing someone new. And to protect her reputation ahead of her next film’s opening, Olivia agrees that it will play better if she can convince the world that Antonio is her new love.

As for Antonio, he needs very little convincing to enter into an arrangement with Olivia. She also goes out of her way to make her love for Antonio look real, much to the shock of his friends, family, and everyone who lays eyes on them. That’s where things start to get complicated. Antonio and Olivia may pine for their exes, but their feelings for each other are starting to become real. To be sure, they are from vastly different worlds, both of which are colliding in unexpected ways.

Breaking Bad veteran Betsy Brandt leads the supporting cast alongside Carmen Salinas Lozano, Amaury Nolasco, Marisol Nichols, Diany Rodriguez, Tiana Okoye, John Pirruccello, Ravi Patel, Noemí González, and Lunay.

The Valet was directed by Richard Wong. Rob Greenberg and Bob Fisher adapted the film’s script from the 2006 French movie of the same name. It will premiere on Hulu on May 20.

Missing’s ending, explained
A young woman talks on her cellphone in Missing.

The sleeper hit movie of 2023, and soon to be one of the most popular movies on Netflix, doesn't involve superheroes or possessed demons like in Evil Dead Rise; instead, it focuses on a young teenager who uses all of the technology at her disposal to find a lost relative. Missing is a sequel of sorts to 2018's Searching, which told a story about a father (John Cho) who is desperate to find his missing daughter. It became a surprise critical and commercial hit and was praised for its unique way of telling the entire story through a computer screen.

While set in the same world, Missing tells a new story about a teenage girl (Storm Reid) who quickly realizes her mother has disappeared under very strange circumstances. Utilizing the power of social media and Google, she tries to track her down while also uncovering some mysteries about her past. If you are interested in having Missing's ending explained, you've come to the right place!
