Peter and Vandy
Peter and Vandy – Movie Review
Peter and Vandy is a love story told out of order. Set in Manhattan, the story shifts back and forth in time, juxtaposing Peter and Vandy’s romantic beginnings with the twisted, manipulative, regular couple they become. The film explores the question most couples ask themselves… “How the hell did we get here?”
“PETER AND VANDY” is a typical love story about a couple meeting and getting together and breaking up, and the reason that I actually liked it is because it is told out of order. In fact, it is what I like to call a love story in disorder. It stars Jason Ritter, who looks just like his father, and Jess Weixler, who is from Teeth – a charming actress. The supporting cast was also very good. Jessie O’Martin and Tracy Toms, and Noah Bean. The fact that it is told out of order does add a certain flavor to it, and the reason I sort of liked it is because I think when we remember things we remember them out of order, and it is sort of part of the pleasure of the movie of trying to figure out what is going on, and what happened, and when the first problems were really evidenced and we just didn’t notice them. So, I give it four stars.
