Movie Info

Two people fall in love without meeting -- and discover a wealth of complications when they try to get together -- in this romantic comedy. Even though he's about to be married, Brian McVeigh (Kevin Anderson) doesn't want to give up his old apartment, where he can swill beer, scarf pizza, and be as much of a slob as he wants. He decides to hold onto his flat as a weekend clubhouse, but he rents it out to other people during the week. Brian's new tenants, sharing the place on alternating days, are Sam (Matthew Broderick), an aspiring gourmet chef who's just been dumped by his spacey girlfriend Pastel (Jeanne Tripplehorn), and Ellen (Annabella Sciorra), who is stuck in an unhappy marriage and wants a place to work on her art. Ellen mistakenly assumes that Brian is the guy who leaves her gourmet snacks and admiring notes about how much he likes her paintings, and when she sets up a liaison with Brian, she wonders how the seemingly perfect man could be such a loser in person. The Night We Never Met also features Justine Bateman as Brian's fiancée and Christine Baranski as Ellen's best friend.more

I think it works for a New York dating age audience better than it does for out of towners.

Audience Reviews for The Night We Never Met


For some reason I really like this chick flix. Its slow and one of those "thinker" flix, but Matthew Broderick is very heartfelt and good in this.

Murf IsAwesome

OMG,... it took them, it seems like, FOREVER to add this movie!! I've been requesting that they add it, and Somebody Has To Shoot The Picture, for more than 2 months!!!

I feel kinda proud knowing that they finally added this movie bc I requested it, probably at least 8 times in more than 2 MONTHS!!

Great film!
