Over the last few months, streaming service Tubi has made great strides in increasing its original content. With a slew of original thriller and horror-themed films already in its originals library, this week the streamer dipped its toe into the rom-com genre with the premiere of Magic Carpet Ride. Written and produced by and starring Nicole DuBois (pictured at top), the movie follows the story of Callie, a successful, phone-addicted social media influencer and content creator who despite having millions of followers just can't win when it comes to love. Following one of the more unconventional meet-cutes in a rom-com, Callie connects with phoneless boat dweller Leo (Matthew Law), who dares her to accompany him on a phoneless day. If she can survive that, and take a moment to live in his present, Leo might be the one to answer her love life dilemma.
