PeacockTV’s Original Movie, Meet Cute drops today and it is absolutely worth your time. The film stars Kaley Cuoco (The Flight Attendant) and Pete Davidson (King of Staten Island) as Sheila and Gary on what seems to be their meet cute.
We meet them at a bar where Sheila gets up the courage to buy Gary a drink. The two hit it off, go to dinner, and have one of the best dates – if not best nights – of their lives. However, all isn’t what it seems. Sheila confesses to Gary that she’s actually a time traveler…from 24 hours in the future and that they’ve relived this night multiple times. Most of the time Gary finds this confession adorable. However, in the end, it’s not all that simple.
KALEY CUOCO AND PETE DAVIDSON ARE FANTASTIC TOGETHER IN MEET CUTE
Kaley Cuoco and Pete Davidson carry this film effortlessly. Their chemistry is fantastic and I found myself – no matter the circumstances – rooting for them the entire time. I am so curious how much of their interactions were IMPROV and how much they actually stuck to the script.
While Meet Cute sells itself as a rom-com, it’s so much more. The film tackled heavy subject matter such as mental health, love, and acceptance of one’s self as well as the person we love. Sheila goes on a very dark journey with her only light being Gary. Noga Pnueli writes the perfect balance of heavy subject matter along with humor is handled in such a delicate way it never feels inappropriate to chuckle.
You would also never know that Director Alexandre Lehmann isn’t a huge fan of romantic comedies. The film never seems to look down on the genre, instead, he fully embraces it creating a fantastic film.
Meet Cute premiere’s on PeacockTV on September 21st, 2022! Make sure to check it out.
