Hale plays Lucy Hutton, an executive at a book publishing company who is forced to share office space with her rival Joshua Templeton, played by Stowell.

The supporting cast includes Gina Torres as Lucy’s boss, Robbie Amell as Lucy’s brother, and Alison Janney in a scene-stealing role as the office busybody. The plot follows Lucy and Joshua’s escalating pranks and mind games as they try to one-up each other on their way to a promotion. Underneath their rivalry is an undeniable attraction.

The Hating Game review

Hale and Stowell have great chemistry as the bickering coworkers who can’t admit they’re falling for each other. Their banter and comedic timing make the enemies-to-lovers trope feel fresh. Janney is hilarious as the office gossip stirring up trouble. overall, The Hating Game sticks closely to the classic romantic comedy formula but the charming leads and witty script make it an enjoyable watch.

I’d give The Hating Game 3 out of 5 stars. While predictable, Hale and Stowell elevate the material with their charisma and comedic skills. It’s a fun, breezy rom-com carried by the entertaining performances even if the story offers few surprises. Fans of the book or enemies-to-lovers plots will find it a light, frothy good time.
