Dreams Do Come True

(Starts at :45)

When comedian/writer Ali Wong was profiled in The New Yorker back in 2016, she mentioned that she and her friend, actor/writer Randall Park, had been talking about making a romantic comedy for years. She described it as "our version of 'When Harry Met Sally.' " That line got picked up by other news outlets, with headlines like, "Dear Hollywood, Please Make Ali Wong and Randall Park's Dream Rom-Com." And as it turned out, Hollywood was listening. Wong and Park's "Always Be My Maybe," which they co-wrote and star in, premieres this week (in select theaters on May 29 and Netflix on May 31). Wong and Park spoke with The Frame about their friendship, working together on the ABC sitcom "Fresh Off The Boat" (she wrote for the show), and why they wanted to make this film together.
