When We First Met

1h 37min | Comedy, Fantasy, Romance | English subtitles

Noah spends 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.

The concept of “When We First Met” sounds like it could be offensively atrocious if it leaned too far into the possessiveness of its premise.

And it’s probable that some people will be offended at the very idea of a man-child who gets to relive the same day over and over again just to get out of the friend zone with a girl he’s been infatuated with for the last three years.

It’s hard to imagine a concept further removed from today’s cultural moment of empowerment than that of a spoiled dude-bro being given multiple chances to bed his object of desire. The truth is that “When We First Met” is too benign to be offensive.
