“Peter (Charlie Day) and Emma (Jenny Slate) thought they were on the precipice of life’s biggest moments – marriage, kids, and houses in the suburbs – until their respective partners dumped them. Horrified to learn that the loves of their lives have already moved on, Peter and Emma hatch a hilarious plan to win back their exes with unexpected results.”
The screenplay for ‘I Want You Back’ is written by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger who are responsible for writing several television sitcoms and movies like ‘This is Us’, ‘Love, Victor’, and ‘Love Simon’. They are also the creators of an upcoming Hulu series called ‘How I Met Your Father’.
The trailer starts with the song ‘I Want You Back’ by David Ruffin which aligns perfectly with the theme of this film. In the very next scene we see the two main leads meeting each other for the first time, distraught and crying. They both try to hatch a plan to get back together with their respective exes.
