Critic Reviews for When We First Met
It'll take you roughly five minutes to realize that Noah is going about things the wrong way; it'll take him more than 90.
It's like being at a crowded restaurant and eavesdropping on the same bad first date over and over and over again. You'd probably want to move tables.
The potentially problematic premise is narrowly sidestepped because the film zigs when you expect it to zag... This watered-down rom-com doesn't fully deliver but it's a diverting twist on the genre nonetheless.
Not utterly charmless "Groundhog Day" variation, with a less-irritating-than-usual Adam Devine.
Romantic comedy vets will be able to figure out the ending early on. While it's predictable, the destination eventually makes the journey worthwhile and rewarding.
Audience Reviews for When We First Met
This is absolutely not my sort of thing. I watched When We First Met because Alexandra Daddario is in it and that is the end of my reasoning. But I was actually pretty pleasantly surprised. Not enough to come away from the movie with a hearty, wide-net recommendation, but it did give a fix for a lot of the problems that I usually find inherent in American Romantic Comedies.
Cute enough. I didn’t mind it till someone pointed out the main guy was trying to be a young Jack Black. Then it put me off slightly! But still an okay rom com.
The time concept has been done over and over but this is still a very fun flick. The biggest issue the film has is the balancing of humour and romance, the filmmakers stay between the two. DeVine is the star here and the rest of the cast have very little to work with, films like this have supporting cast that are provided next to nothing. Netflix needs to be careful with the films they are purchasing as this was a very run of the mill film that was only purchased on the backend of DeVine's current exposure. A film to pass the time but nothing more. 28-03-2018.
