Noah meets Avery at a Halloween party and falls in love but gets friend-zoned. 3 years later she's engaged to someone else. Noah uses the photo booth time machine several times to return and fix things. Will it work or...?
A Chicago baker (V.Hudgens) is competing in a Christmas baking competition in Belgravia. There she bumps into the prince's fiancee. They look alike and switch for 2 days. "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans."
Two hard-partying brothers place an online ad to find the perfect dates for their sister's Hawaiian wedding. Hoping for a wild getaway, the boys instead find themselves out-hustled by an uncontrollable duo.
Noah thinks he has the perfect first night with Avery, 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 change that night - and his fate - over and over again.
A pretty decent romcom, but it probably won't stick with you.
I've read reviews saying this was suprisingly good and better than the usual chickflick, but I think that "When we first met" is exactly that: The usual chickflick. The only thing that was better done than you might expect is the ending. I think most people will not see this ending coming, but will probably be sort of hoping for it throughout the movie.
The comedy/humour in "When we first met" is mostly a bit dull and/or idiotic, but some parts really do make you laugh. I think that they might have been trying too hard to be funny, which made it a little bit awkward at times, but I suppose that that comes with this genre. It's not better, but also not worse, than you'd expect.
The main character isn't as likeable as he/she usually is in a romcom, but this character will warm up to you. The secundairy characters consist of the pretty girl who's put on a way too high pedestal without any real reason, the handsom guy who everybody likes except one (because of jealousy ofcourse), the goovy/cool female friend and the goovy/cool male friend. You'll find yourself liking some of them though, which makes for an enjoyable movie.
