New Zealand just got its first Netflix movie and it's an adorable rom-com shot entirely in Aotearoa

Netflix sure knows how to make adorably cheesy rom-coms – and now New Zealand is getting one of its own!

Falling Inn Love was shot entirely in New Zealand and even stars several familiar Kiwi faces.

The loved-up film tells the story of an American city girl, Gabriela who – after losing her job and boyfriend – moves to New Zealand to fix up and flip a rustic Kiwi inn. Out of her depth, she soon enlists the help of local Kiwi hand man and certified dreamboat, Jake. Let’s just say, it’s not long before sparks fly …

The cuter than cute movie - directed by Roger Kumble, who is known for his work on The Sweetest Thing, Just Friends and Cruel Intentions - stars Christina Milian as the leading lady, alongside Aussie hunk Adam Demos – who actually pulls of the Kiwi accent fairly well.

Kiwi actor Anna Jullienne, Claire Chitham and Blair Strang – all of Shortland Street fame – also star in the Netflix flick.

On social media, Kiwis noted that while the film may not be the most "original" love story, they still can’t wait to watch it.

"I love movies like this even though I feel like I have seen this plot one million times," one person wrote in the movie trailer's YouTube comments section.

"Cringe because of our Kiwi accent, but will probably still watch this", another New Zealander noted.

"This is a cute chick flick," another added. "I’ll watch it."

Falling Inn Love is available to stream on Netflix from August 29 and we can’t wait!
