Peacock’s “Meet Cute” directed by Alex Lehmann is a fantasy romantic comedy movie, that focuses on the love story of Sheila and Gary. When Sheila approaches Gary, it’s almost love at first sight, but the fact is that their supposed date isn’t fate after all. In fact, she has access to a time machine that she uses to meet him for the first time several times and fall in love over and over again just to make sure their romantic relationship works out.
But when Sheila can’t find the perfect night after so many tries, she goes into Gary’s past to change his personality and turn him into the perfect man for her. The time-traveling romantic narrative is made all the more compelling by the impressive performances of the talented cast of Kaley Cuoco, Pete Davidson, Deborah S. Craig, Sierra Fisk, and Kirk Kelly.
The picturesque backdrop of the sprawling city, when the couple falls in love, enhances the overall quality of the narrative. So it’s only natural to wonder where “Meet Cute” was actually filmed.
“Meet Cute” was shot entirely in New York, specifically in New York. Principal photography for the rom-com reportedly began in August 2021 and wrapped up by the end of the same month.
