Kaley Cuoco and Pete Davidson meet again and again in the latest trailer for Meet cute. The film follows Sheila (Cuoco) and Gary (Davidson), who meet one night at a bar and realize their first meeting may not have been their first. Sheila admits that she can time travel through a magical tanning bed, which gives her the power to control how her date with Gary goes. The two spend endless nights together, building their chemistry and sparking a real romance. Alex Lehmann is at the helm of this romantic comedy. Filming for the project began last year in New York. In August 2021, Cuoco announced that it had completed production. The film is set to be released on Peacock on September 21.
The time loop formula has been used in films such as happy day of the dead, Palm Springs, About time, and more. Often, the creative choice to use the formula revolves around a character discovering that they’ve taken things for granted. Perhaps the best example is the 1993 comedy groundhog day, which starred Bill Murray. The film centers on a cynical meteorologist who finds himself trapped in a time loop, forcing him to relive the holidays over and over. Ted Slowik of the Chicago Tribune analyzed the film in 2017 and wrote that one of the film’s messages is that people with “free will can choose goodness.” He said that Murray’s character, Phil Connors, constantly rehearses the events of the party to achieve a “sufficient measure of goodness”. It will be interesting to see if Kaley Cuoco’s character in Meet cute goes through a similar character journey through her repeat dates in the film. The trailer suggests that Sheila wants the date to be perfectly accurate. Maybe by the end of the movie, she’ll realize that no first date is perfect.
Kaley Cuoco has starred in many projects. She starred in the CBS comedy, The The Big Bang Theory, playing the character of Penny. In 2017, she founded Yes, Norman Productions, which has an exclusive production deal with Warner Bros. Television. The first project under Yes, Norman Productions was the film adaptation of author Chris Bohjalian’s novel The stewardess. The film premiered on the HBO Max streaming service on November 26, 2020. Perhaps one of Cuoco’s most prominent roles was voicing DC’s lead character in the adult animated series. harley quinn. The actress was announced to voice the iconic character in October 2018. Fans and critics alike have praised the series for its humor and voice cast. Cuoco’s work on the series won Best Voice Actress in an Animated Series at the Critics’ Choice Super Awards last year. A spin-off starring Kite Man is currently in development for HBO Max. The series itself is currently in its third season.
As to whether Kaley Cuoco’s new romantic flick will be a hit with audiences, that remains to be seen. Hopefully the Groundhog Day item and the two tracks can convince people to check it out.
