Directed by “Paddleton” filmmaker Alex Lehmann and written by newcomer Noga Pnueli, “Meet Cute” appears to be like like a enjoyable rom-com. The idea is a bit paying homage to Richard Curtis’ “About Time” starring Rachel McAdams and Domhnall Gleeson, besides Sheila tells Gary what is going on on. There’s additionally a component of “Groundhog Day” with how they’re doing the identical date again and again. I may additionally see Cuoco channeling a little bit of Invoice Murray’s Phil on this transient preview.
With the revelation Shelia shares with Gary, it appears to be like like we’ll get quite a lot of playful, timey-wimey antics all through this film. I imply, the time journey mechanism is a tanning mattress. That bit alone has quite a lot of potential for enjoyable. However as we see from the trailer, Cuoco and Davidson’s romantic backwards and forwards may be very charming. I stay up for seeing how they navigate the thought of “you erase the ache, you erase the individual” because the film progresses. But in addition, I have to know extra about what Future Sheila does to the Current Sheilas.
After you try the trailer above, this is the official synopsis of the film:
When Sheila (Kaley Cuoco) and Gary (Pete Davidson) meet, it is love at first sight — till we notice their magical date wasn’t destiny in any respect. Sheila’s obtained a time machine, they usually’ve been falling in love again and again. However when the right night time is rarely fairly sufficient, Sheila travels to Gary’s previous to vary him into the right man.
“Meet Cute” premieres September 21, 2022, on Peacock.
