The first day in any class of “Introduction to Screenwriting” is worth checking out for one thing at home: Your story won’t connect with the audience if your main characters don’t connect with them. Wants anything. Yes, yes, rules are made to be broken, experimental art is vital to the expansion of any form, but I don’t think so nice meeting, a low-cost rom-com of two genres that debuted on Peacock, and that was the point of it. It is, instead, a mere failure.
Kaley Cuoco and Pete Davidson, two amazing actors who have done and will continue to do great things in their careers, are stuck in an episode of first dates in this aggravating and baffling feature from director Alex Lehmann. It’s a gimmick like hard day or Palm Springs, only this time it is imposed on itself, through time travel. imagine primerbut like a When Harry Met Sally-The inspired sitcom then replaces the piercing dialogue with the meandering boredom of one endless theater. (Not good, like David Ives sure thingto any nice meeting He owes a great debt.)
The production, hampered by a shooting around COVID-19 protocols, is trying to bring things to life with the locations of Lower Manhattan, but it doesn’t have any more original ideas than an “Indian restaurant!” or “Phrase!” It’s stressful.
The first time we meet Sheila from Coco, she gets hot for Gary Davidson, and she looks up to him at the end of the bar. She comes to him, but before they break up to take Bark to a new place, she tells him that she is a time traveler. She makes cute/silly faces, so Gary rolls around with her for a while. But when you start to finish his sentences, he gets confused.
Turns out she really is a time traveler. You see, there is a nail salon with a tanning bed in the back that can take you back 24 hours. fair enough. While this date is the first we see among the public, it is actually the seventh. You keep coming back the next morning because… well, that part is a bit blurry.
Sheila is a killer too, because every time she goes back to the tanning bed, she finds herself off the new schedule and runs that version of herself with her car. This makes him laugh well, but it doesn’t exactly leave a single rooting for this person as the other Kaley Cuoco tries to escape the horror.
The date lasts about a year, and includes some chats with Deborah S. Craig as nail salon director June, who seems very elated about this woman who comes every day. In fact, Jun realizes the cycle of Sheila’s constant visits and her inability to help Sheila find happiness, but that makes no sense. If you find a new Sheila Gary every time, June must be just as clueless as he is. (Also, does Sheila sleep? Unclear.)
Eventually, things start to go south, as Sheila finds a way to travel backwards in the meantime trying to “fix” the pesky incidents of Gary’s youth. His father was never around to play ball with him, so a mysterious uncle (Coco with a fake mustache) showed up with a glove. She also goes through Gary’s awkward teenage years as a Russian pizza delivery girl to free him from virginity. When the last Gary—whose easier path in life has turned him into a kind of tech frenzy—learns about this time manipulation, he’s pissed off. In the end he shouts that he can’t do that anymore. Do what or what Any more? This is all completely new to him if you follow the logic of this story!
Apparently some members of the audience (raise hand) relate more to rules than others. ryan johnson loper Her dismissal about understanding time travel (“we’ll be here all day making charts with straws”) is great, but you need a little bit of logic to make the hook work, and nice meeting He simply does not have it.
This would be more forgiving if the scene work was excellent. Although these actors are a game, the script is a walkie-talkie. Davidson is his usual charming personality, just as he appears in goodness King of Staten Island And the best big adolescence (Broadcasting on Hulu now if you missed it), hang out with him and Cuoco within the confines of putting a full daffy on the witch. But there aren’t any clever moments, just a display of clichés I’ve seen in many other indie romance stories.
In 2019, Alex Lehmann released another device, which was the most successful paddleton With Ray Romano and Mark Duplass. It’s also mostly just two people talking, but there’s depth and humanity absent here. nice meeting It has all the inauthenticity of a forgotten low-budget image — and eye-catching dialogue like making Kaley Cuoco say “All things!” – In addition to the central premise does not work. Don’t feel bad if you stand this.
