In MEET CUTE, Sheila (Kaley Cuoco) meets Gary (Pete Davidson) at a bar and together they enjoy the best first date ever. It's so great that when Sheila is offered the ability to time travel, via a tanning bed in the back room of a nail salon run by June (Deborah S. Craig), she uses it to keep going back 24 hours to relive the same date again and again. It turns out that connecting with Gary could give her a reason to live, but the inorganic way she's repeating their night together -- and the changes she decides she should make to the past based on what she learns from the repetitions -- could ruin what the two discovered in each other.
"I don't even look at him and say, 'Where have you been all my life? Why didn't I meet you sooner?' " Cuoco said. "I don't wish that, and he doesn't either because I had to go through a lot of (stuff) and really look at myself in the mirror and the things that I have (messed up) over my past 10 years that I haven't dealt with.
What Is the Anthology About?Meet Cute is a unique anthology series that deals with conversations between strangers when they meet for the first time. The topics are unexpected, and moments are etched in the memory forever.
A girl is asked out on a partial date of sorts on the first meeting with only the night at hand. The boy has to impress her to get the nod of approval for the marriage. There is a lot to do here to get across that drama. However, the key moments to transfer the feelings are kept short, and a lot of time is wasted on superficial details like the location, setting, looks etc. The depth is missing as a result, and hence, the short fails to leave the mark.
Peacock has expanded its original movie lineup with the release of Meet Cute. The romantic comedy stars Kaley Cuoco and Pete Davidson as two strangers who meet one night at a bar and go on to have the best first date. It's such a good date that Cuoco's character Shelia continues to live the day over and over again thanks to a time machine.
Unplugging is similar to Meet Cute because both movies really focus on the relationships between the characters. With no technology to distract Dan and Jeanine and a time loop ensuring Shelia and Gary always meet, the couples are able to connect in new and exciting ways.
But encountering the time machine gave her another chance to continue living, without actually doing so. She meets Gary, and because their first date goes so well, she does not want to take things further with the fear that it will not work out.
Meet Cute begins with Sheila (Cuoco) and Gary (Davidson) meeting in a bar. They seem to be remarkably in sync with each other's thoughts, given that this is a first-time encounter. Except that it's not. Sheila recently stumbled across a time machine which has allowed her to travel back in time and repeat this "first" date for a week straight. Sheila is convinced that Gary is the man of her dreams. However, she's addicted to repeating this specific evening, and that eventually drives her ideal night down a bad path.
Meet-cute is the running theme of all five short movies in this anthology. But, these meetings do not necessarily take place between couples who would form a romantic relationship in the future. That is a refreshing element as it diversifies and expands the scope of our emotional response to this ensemble of short stories. 041b061a72
