Love, Guaranteed’ is a romantic comedy movie streaming on Netflix, and it stars Rachel Leigh Cook as Susan, a lawyer that takes a case against an online dating site to save her small law firm. Her client Nick, played by Damon Wayans Jr., has been on more than 900 dates but still hasn’t found the one, despite the company claiming that they guarantee love. So, he decides to sue the dating site for false advertising. The two then figure out their feelings for each other while trying to win the case against the billion-dollar enterprise.

Love, Guaranteed Filming Locations

This rom-com is directed by Mark Steven Johnson and the filming took place in Canada, mostly in and around Vancouver. For a story that is primarily putting the concept of love and its availability on trial, the beautiful city made an excellent backdrop. Substantial subsidies are also offered to production houses and hence, it would make sense for filmmakers to take advantage of this as well. Locals were also employed in smaller roles as and when necessary. 

Vancouver, Canada

The filming of Love, Guaranteed took place around Vancouver. The city is known as North Hollywood because of the billion-dollar entertainment industry that it houses. There are a plethora of accoladed American shows to have been filmed here. Thus, it only feels fitting that the millennial rom-com was shot in the area. The Vancouver Art Gallery also features in the list of filming venues for the film.
