Love is in the air with the movie Meet Cute. Starring Saturday Night Live alum Pete Davidson and The Flight Attendant star Kaley Cuoco, the movie takes viewers on a journey of romance that involves some endearing banter, a number of laughs and the occasional moments of time travel. Yes, we said time travel. 

Cuoco’s character Sheila is on a mission to continue relieving the first moments that she met the love of her life. Unfortunately, the more she travels back in time to meet Davidson’s character Gary, the more she realizes he’s flawed by past experiences. Seeking to make him perfect, she attempts to go back in time to prevent those experiences from happening. However, as with every show or movie that deals with time travel, messing with elements in the past always has unintended consequences. 

Here’s everything we know about Meet Cute

When is the Meet Cute release date? 

Meet Cute premieres in the US on Wednesday, September 21, on Peacock. Those interested in watching the film when it debuts need at least a Peacock Premium subscription, which can be obtained with a few clicks of a mouse. 

We expect the film to become available in the UK also via Peacock. The streaming service can be accessed via Sky TV or NOW subscriptions. 

What is Meet Cute about? 

Peacock describes the Meet Cute plot as the following: 

"When Sheila and Gary meet, it’s love at first sight — until we realize their magical date wasn’t fate at all. Sheila’s got a time machine and they've been falling in love over and over again. But when the perfect night is never quite enough, Sheila travels to Gary’s past to change him into the perfect man."

Judging by the trailer, Cuoco’s Sheila may be straddling the line between romantic and stalkerish behavior. Take a look and you be the judge.
