Emily in Paris surely got a lot of hype, but is it overrated? According to some Redditors, it absolutely is. Lily Collins is known for her role as Emily Cooper, who falls in love with the place. There’s also a rumor that the producers of the film have done extraordinary favors in return for awards at the Golden Globes, causing it to be cancelled in 2022. Another one highlighted that it’s their go-to show for coming home after being beaten from work and watching somebody else’s stupid life drama on TV.
