Storyline

Engaging Peter is the story of Peter, a struggling documentary filmmaker who has resorted to shooting weddings for rent money. While shooting an engagement party, he attempts to make a connection with Jen, the beautiful sister of the bride. Getting nowhere, Jen's mysterious Grandma intercedes and casts a spell. Peter becomes trapped in a repeating circle of time, getting the chance to strike up conversations with Jen fresh each time. But Peter is reclusive and awkward when he doesn't have his camera in between himself and his subjects. Peter must relive this brief moment at the party until he gets it right and wins Jen's heart.

Funny film by by improvisational actors in LA
1 April 2006 | by (Philadelphia) – See all my reviews

Really a pleasant surprise. This film was made at night by a bunch of improvisational actors in LA on a real tight budget. Some of the scenes are really funny and the slow parts are short. Stars Kevin Berntson (a member of the LA improv group The Groundlings, who count Will Ferrell amongst it's members) and Berntson is in nearly every scene. If you can find the DVD (very hard to find) the commentary track really adds to enjoyment. This film should have been entered in some film fests. It's the kind of thing that shows up at Sundance and other indi fests. My favorite scene is the seduction in the bathroom one. (But I won't spoil it. It's cute and funny, not an erotic seduction.
