Watch When We First Met 365movies free online – Even though the originality of the story line isn’t there. It mastered the groundhog day concept of a feel good movie. Maybe I feel it’s exceptional because i just watched 3 movies with nail biting open ended movies like 3 billboards outside ebbing Missouri. I love movies that make you think and get good laughs.

When We First Met review by Mitchellbieds – An Unexpected Surprise
I went into this film after reading a lot of negative reviews about how disappointing the film was, but the plot really intrigued me and i wanted to give it a shot and I’m glad I did! It is a typical Romcom, but it does have a twist to it.
I think the acting is good, I haven’t seen much form Adam DeVine but he seems to be an extremely underrated actor. He portrays his character very well as do Alex Daddario and Shelley Hennig, but Adam really stood out for me, he’s got some serious talent.
The movie is actually quite funny and majority, if not all the funny scenes come from Adam DeVine (obviously), it even had a couple of ‘laugh-out-loud’ moments. Well, for me anyway.
As i said, the plot is what got my attention for this film. Im a real sucker for ‘time travel’ movies even though Im left confused at the end of them. Im glad this film is not like that, there is a “twist”, sort of, that may require some thought but it is not hard to follow at all.
If you go into this film expecting it to be the most unique and non-clichéd movie, then you wont enjoy it. It is a movie that you just relax and watch and enjoy without digging too deep into it.
There is a message that the film is trying to get across about how we shouldn’t try and change things just because we think it will makes us happy, just let life happen and we will find happiness. (idk, thats what i got from it)
Overall, this was a nice, sweet, feel-good movie that anyone can watch and get some sort of enjoyment out of it. Its funny, sweet, mysterious and has a really satisfying and happy ending. Go give it a watch!
When We First Met review by dhaha-18101 – Wholesome FeelGood RomCom
Honestly, I went into this movie with low expectations, and I came out pleasantly surprised and amused. I like Adam Devine, especially his work in Workaholics, and find him quite funny. Alexandra Daddario, in my most humble opinion, is such a total BABE; so fine omg. Anyway, I digress; this movie was just super wholesome and left you with a good warm feeling when you finished it. Sure it was cliche at moments and you could basically predict the plot if you’re an avid movie watcher, but I don’t think that takes away from the movie in general. If you came into this movie expecting an oscar-winning crazy complex contemporary movie that made you really think about it’s major themes and underlying messages then I’m sorry but you’re going to be sorely disappointed. However, if you go into this movie with an open mind, a fun mood, and some popcorn, I believe you will come to enjoy this movie for what it is: a Wholesome Feelgood Romcom.
When We First Met review by Soussi Niaimi Badr-Eddine – What to expect
Some poeple may say that everything was predictable, I would say yes after watching few minutes and couples of scenes you may be able to proedict the ending, but still, you know only his goal you don’t know how he is gonna achieve it. As a personal opinion I believe that this movie is brilliant, time traveling isn’t a new thing but the combining comedy a little bit of romance and good storylines makes this movie great, I did enjoy every second watching it, however I’m not a big fan of comedy movies, but tbh Adam Devine did a great job, the movie is awesome it delivers a great idea. Try it you won’t regret.
When We First Met review by jared-andrews2357 – It’s Kind of Like Groundhog Day, but Worse
Remember the movie, Groundhog Day? Of course you do. It’s wonderful. Bill Murray plays a man who, while reliving the same day over and over again, learns how to treat people better, make them happier, and in turn make himself happier. The movie, When We First Met is kind of like that except the jokes aren’t as funny and the rules don’t make sense and he sometimes flashes forward in time and it’s a much worse movie.
Here’s a quick overview of the plot. Noah (Adam Devine) loves his friend Avery (Alexandra Daddario), but she’s engaged to Ethan (Robbie Amell). While drinking heavily out of sadness that he missed his chance with the girl of his dreams, Noah uses a magic photobooth to jump back in time to the night that he met Avery. His second chance with her goes well until it doesn’t. Then he tries again and again and… you get the idea.
The premise is fun enough. I actually like the idea quite a bit. The issue is that the movie just has so many holes. The plot doesn’t make sense when given even an ounce of thought. What are the rules of his time jumps? Are there any? Some things he remembers. Others he doesn’t. There is no discernable plan behind it all, other than to reach for cheap laughs whenever possible. It seems like the writer didn’t have a very clear vision of the world that he built. In other words, he butchered the Groundhog Day model.
I like Adam Devine. He has a likable aura in all his roles even when he does something unsavory. In this role, he goes for it in every scene, even when I’m sure he knew the line didn’t work or didn’t make sense. I commend him for his effort. He almost sold it at certain points, but he was severely held back by the script.
A lot of the jokes didn’t land. Then they would come up again later, and they would not land again. It was a double-whammy of jokes bombing terribly. The funniest scene in the movie comes when Noah visualizes the moment Avery met Ethan at a grocery store. I won’t spoil it, but the image is good for a hearty chuckle.
A big problem with the movie is that I didn’t quite believe a lot of it. With comedies, they work if I believe what is happening and they work if I know that I’m suspending my disbelief and laughing at how absurd things are. But when the events pose as rational but aren’t quite there, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I can deal with the unbelievability of the time jumping, but I can’t deal with inconsistently enforced rules within the time jumping. Even the ridiculous plot points need to be grounded in some form of rational thought. On the positive side, I liked all the performers. I think any of them could fit in fine in a well-made movie. I’m not sure any one of them is capable of carrying a weak script, which is the challenge they faced here. I’d like to see all of them receive more opportunities.
Somehow, despite all my gripes, I still found myself caring about the ending. It’s the best part. It’s fairly predictable but handled just warmly and delicately enough that I couldn’t complete hate the entire movie. I must be a sucker for romance or Adam Devine or both.
With that said, I don’t recommend this movie.
When We First Met review by Yellowblack3 – Exactly what you are expecting
Do you know what is like when you don’t want a movie to end? That’s exactly what you get by watching that movie. A twist of love, laughter, a good story, that’s all you need. I enjoyed it more than expected to be honest and it’s being a while since I had that feeling from a film that kind. Perfect cast and good storyline.
When We First Met review by Hayden Smith – Heartfelt, hilarious thought-provoking rom-com!
When We First Met is a sweet, charming movie about who people are really meant for.
Noah, played immaculately by Adam Devine, gets the chance to travel back in time to persuade Avery, the girl of his dreams, to fall in love with him.
As the time travels increase, the comedy escalates and escalates, creating a subversion of the cliché conventions. The movie encompasses so much twists and turns, creating a modern love story.
In his most gorgeous role yet, Adam portrays Noah as an awkward and friendly guy, transforming his role from what could have been a creepy stalker, into a sweet protagonist, hopeful for love. Adam injects the perfect amount of humour and heart into his performance, demonstrating a true vulnerability to Noah.
This movie ends in such a beautiful note about life and love, with the whole cast having amazing chemistry together!
When We First Met review by Wgemedicaid – It’s a fun, lightweight rom-com.
After reading print reviews I was a bit apprehensive about how good this movie would be.
However I was generally amused with the film which had a few laugh-out-loud moments. (Shelley Hennig has a great swing.)
The repeated time travel aspect was interesting in that Noah gets a do-over on one day three years in the past and then wakes up to see what has changed in the intervening three years. Different.
The acting was good though some of the writing could have been better. I especially liked Hennig. Daddario was adequate. Devine carried the movie well.
Being from New Orleans, it was nice to see so much of the city without all the cliches. One jarring thing for me – my wife didn’t catch it – was when the cast went for a run, they started in Armstrong Park and seconds later they are in City Park which is 5 miles away. (I’m just being picky – lol)
This movie won’t win Oscars but it does entertain.
When We First Met review by Gino Cox – A half-baked mashup of ideas that have been explored more skillfully and interestingly
“When We First Met” is a half-baked mashup of ideas that have been explored more skillfully and interestingly in “The Butterfly Effect,” “Groundhog Day” and “Bedazzled.” Whereas GD explored the male-centric notion that a man can conquer any woman’s heart with determination, perseverance and a readiness to change through growth and maturation, WWFM assumes the female-centric view that there can be only one perfect match which is somehow divinely ordained and guided by destiny. The result is somewhat incoherent and nonsensical.
Adam Devine plays Noah, a somewhat nerdish underachiever with seemingly limitless potential, who is smitten by überbabe Avery (Alexandra Daddario), whose underutilization in this film borders on the criminal. Not only is she given so little to do that her sentiments are often expressed by BFF Carrie (Shelley Hennig), but, in chickflick fashion, she is dressed so modestly, save for a hint of cleavage, that one wonders if the actress has become pregnant and is dressed in body-comatose (if that’s the antonym of body-conscious) outfits to disguise a growing baby bump.
Noah, through no fault of his own, has been consigned by Avery to the infuriatingly inescapable friend zone. Through some fortuitous divine intervention, he is repeatedly whisked back in time to the fateful day when he blew whatever chance he thinks he might have had with Avery and given several opportunities to change his game plan. He manages to capture her body, but not her heart, while causing substantial collateral damage in other areas of his life, but is whisked back to the present with no memory of whatever sexual ecstasy they may have shared.
Performances are generally good, although Devine and Daddario are hampered by an unimaginative script. Henning delivers a varied and interesting performance, reacting to different permutations of Devine’s character. Andrew Bachelor channels Eddie Murphy as Noah’s best friend. Production values are adequate to the task.
However, while occasionally amusing, I never found the film laugh-out-loud funny. The film takes itself too seriously to be funny. Noah’s efforts to escape the friend zone are treated as something bordering on rape mentality. He never enjoys his time with Avery or much of anything else in his alternate realities. He suffers because he can’t have Avery, then suffers because having Avery’s body but not her soul doesn’t live up to his fantasy. Where’s the humor in that?
When We First Met review by rockman182
I have a strong eh feeling for “Netflix original films”, some impress most fall flat. The original shows are good, most of the films feel like direct to video and its easy to see why the films don’t come to theaters. I had some real hesitation checking When We First Met for two reasons. One, I didn’t take confidence in seeing Adam Devine (who is decent in doses) as a leading man. Second, I found the time loop/reliving the same day storyline a little stale since there’s been some recent frequent takes on it. Oddly and surprisingly, I had a good time with this one.
The film is about a man named Noah (Devine), who meets the girl of his dreams at a Halloween Party. Three years pass and he has to watch her get engaged to another man. He soon discovers that returning to a photo booth at a jazz bar allows him to travel back in time and relive that Halloween and change his future. Naturally, things go wrong as he tries to woo the girl that he wants most and we get a nice laugh out of Noah’s trials and tribulations.
The film had a few funny moments. Some of them caused me to laugh out loud. Devine really worked as a leading man, a lot of the funny would not have been possible with out his unique delivery. The time loop nature of the film wasn’t so annoying. I mean, there were times where I felt the story dragged out but it wasn’t so easy to predict how Noah was going to get the right formula to end up with the girl he loves. Overall, I can’t deny that I was interested the whole way through.
I do have a criticism that is kind of unrelated to the film. Why are internet stars like Andre Bachelor (who got famous off of vines) in so many movies now? I saw him do one with Logan Paul ffs. Yeah, lets keep it it real actors please. A fun time overall, I want to see Netflix bring more quality programming and not some hot garbage (Cloverfield Paradox, I’m looking at you).
When We First Met review by Farrarsteven – A fresh take a “Do Over” Movie
Just finished this film today and I must say that this movie threw me for a loop because about mid way through the film, I thought I had the whole plot figured out and then the plot twist happens towards the end of the second act. This film provides a fresh take on the “Do Over” genre which kept me watching. There are a few minor flaws with the film that truly keep it from being a great movie. Adam Devine’s character plays the lovable second fiddle friend very well but his comedic chops are somewhat watered down in this film, although he does produce a few minor laughs here and there. Daddario’s character offers nothing we haven’t seen in a RomCom as the object of Devine’s affections. Her character is very generic. It just seems like everyone’s character is pretty generic with the exception of Shelley Hennig’s character who initially plays the “Bitchy” best friend to Daddario’s character, turns out to be used effectively as nice under the radar plot device which always viewers to see two different sides of Hennig’s character. Overall, When We First Met is a fun, watchable movie for viewers, with a great plot twist and some added funny humor but it’s not a movie that you’ll remember for the ages.
When We First Met review by Hellmant – Like most movies, has it’s positives and negatives.
A romantic comedy about a guy who travels back in time, multiple times, in an attempt to get out of the ‘friend zone’ with the girl of his dreams. It stars Adam Devine, Alexandra Daddario, Shelley Hennig, Robbie Amell and Andrew Bachelor. It was directed by Ari Sandel (who also helmed 2015’s ‘THE DUFF’), and it was written by Devine and John Whittington (who also co-wrote ‘THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE’ and ‘THE LEGO NINJAGO MOVIE’). The film was released by Netflix through it’s streaming site. I found it to be mildly amusing.
Noah Ashby (Devine) has been hopelessly in love with his best friend Avery Martin (Daddario), ever since the night they met. He felt that night went perfect, but she has kept him in the ‘friend zone’ ever since (and now she’s engaged to someone else). Upon making a wish in a picture booth, to make things different, Noah travels back in time to the night he met Avery. When he doesn’t set things right the first time, he keeps traveling back in time (to the same night) in a desperate attempt to get it right.
The movie has a cool premise, and it’s kind of a unique new twist on the time traveling flick, but other than that it’s kind of simple and unoriginal. Devine is good in it though, and he’s always funny in my opinion. Daddario’s character is pretty unlikable though, in my opinion as well, and I had a hard time even relating to why he’s so in love with her. It’s also pretty obvious, the entire film, who he should be pining after. The film, like most movies, has it’s positives and negatives, and I’ll give it a slightly above average rating for them.
When We First Met review by LittleLotti – Met expectations
I don’t know why there a bad reviews for this movie. If you watch the trailer you get exactly the movie you’re expecting. Obviously this isn’t going to be the greatest movie you’ve ever seen, but it was a decent flick for a Saturday night in. Like most movies that deal with going back in time, WWFM deals with the way fate plays out and how changing things can result in a completely different life – not always the one you were hoping for. Overall though it’s not a bad movie. Not riotously funny, but enjoyable. I appreciate that it didn’t rely on sex, drugs, or violence like the comedies coming out lately. Call me a prude but the last few comedies I’ve seen have been utterly tasteless. Anyway, this is a good movie to watch to kill some time or for a night in with friends, but don’t expect anything outstanding.
