Michael Nordine author There’s no meet cute in “Meet Cute,” which is kind of the point. The film, which takes its name from the romantic comedy trope wherein two people meet in an unusual, makes-for-a-good-story kind of way that rarely happens in real life, owes as much if not more to “Groundhog Day” as it does to “When Harry Met Sally…” Kaley Cuoco and Pete Davidson are the would-be couple in Alex Lehmann’s time-loop rom-com, which could have just as easily been named “500 First Dates” for its portrayal of a lovesick woman on a monomaniacal quest to get things just right.
The movie itself is more freewheeling than its heroine, deriving much of its charm from a performance that’s well rehearsed on several levels.
What appears to be Sheila (Cuoco) and Gary’s (Davidson) first night together unfolds over nearly 30 minutes of screentime and is in the “Before Sunrise” vein of walk-and-talk romance, with the two of them opening up to each other the way people only seem to be able to when they’ve just met someone new and attractive.Read more on variety.com
