When First We Met: trailer

Netflix has released the trailer for the romantic comedy film When We First Met, launching on February 9.

Noah (Adam Devine) spends the perfect first night with Avery (Alexandra Daddario), the girl of his dreams, but gets relegated to the friend zone. He spends the next three years wondering what went wrong – until he gets the unexpected chance to travel back in time and alter that night – and his fate – over and over again. Will Noah ever get it right? Directed by Ari Sandel (The DUFF) the film also co-stars Shelley Hennig, Andrew Bachelor and Robbie Amell.

  1. This looks pretty good, I enjoy a romcom. Adam Devine is lovely I hope somehow his character Andy comes back to Modern Family down the track and have Andy and Haley end up together.

  2. I hope Netflix’s algorithms have hit on a winning formula for romcoms.

    I realised recently that I love some romcoms (Pretty Woman, Groundhog Day, Four Weddings, Notting Hill), and haven’t explored the genre widely, so I have been doing so. It is a hard slog. I would estimate that out of 15 movies, only 4 are worth watching to completion and only one of those makes it onto my rewatch list (Laws of Attraction made it 2 nights ago)

    • I think rom coms have become the forgotten genre and I miss it. They used to make some really great ones in the 90s and 00s but nothing much anymore. I actually thought laws of attraction was just ok and not something I would watch again but each to their own.

      The trailer for this actually looks pretty good.

      • I have tried 46 romance films this month, mainly comedies. The only ones that made it on to my to be rewatched list are, “In Your Eyes”, “Two Night Stand”, “Man Up” and “Laws of Attraction.”

        Laws of Attraction has a good romcom beginning, but changes into a somewhat dragging romance that was destined to be 3.5 stars until the ending redeemed it.

        I would have it in the lowest third of my romantic movies to watch again if I could still re-order the list. Bloody IMDB!

        • Those three movies besides laws of attraction were made in the last five years and I haven’t seen them so I can’t comment. Gee 46 movies is a lot! I’m not sure what you’ve seen but as mentioned previously I would go back to the 90s or 00s and try some of those you’ll definitely have more choice! Some quick suggestions you’ve got mail, two weeks notice, win a date with tad Hamilton, she’s all that, never been kissed, wedding singer. If you liked pretty woman you might like runaway bride which has the same leads.

          • Sorry tvf, I only just found this reply as my subscribe to comments function died between your 2 replies.

            I’ve tried Never Been Kissed and Wedding Singer, both had utterly uninteresting beginnings, so I DNF them.

            You’ve Got Mail is terrible compared to it’s predecessor Sleepless in Seattle. The fact that Sleepless only gets .2 more stars on IMDB is astonishing to me.

            Two Weeks Notice is very good. I have watched it twice and will watch it again.

            She’s All That and Runaway Bride are already on my viewing list.

            I have added Tad Hamilton to my viewing list on your recommendation.

    • I agree. Problem with romcoms is that there are so many different elements that need to come together to make it work and you can’t force it. I mean, on paper, Pretty Woman shouldn’t really have worked, some elements are actually a little bit dark and a different director might have made a mess of it. But it is directed so well, and Julia Roberts is just so charming in it that it works. New Year’s Eve is one recent one that probably looked good on paper but just failed miserably.
      My fave romcom of all time is probably Miss Congeniality.
      A more recent one that I really liked was “Enough Said” with Julia Louis Dreyfus.

      • I like miss congeniality but I don’t think of it as a romcom because its more about her going undercover as an fbi agent than romance but that’s not to say viewers don’t interpret things differently. I agree NYE was terrible. I remember seeing the trailer when it first came out for enough said but haven’t got around to seeing it so thanks for the reminder.
