While trying to escape a crowd of adoring fans, movie star Don Lockwood (Gene Kelly) hops into a passing car driven by Kelly Selden (Debbie Reynolds) in singing in the rain when they are introduced to each other for the first time. Or maybe you're more familiar with the taxi cab scene in "When Harry met Sally"... These are just some of the examples of what is known as the “Meet Cute”.
Whats a Meet Cute you're asking? Its the scene in a movie which two individuals are brought together in some unlikely, zany, destined-to-fall-in-love-and-be-together-forever sort of way.
The scenario: you meet another couple at a house party and they tell you how they met. It’s a lovely story that makes your story look like garbage. So on the fly you pick your favourite movie with an over the top meet cute and use that instead.
Movies being used this week are American Pie 2, The Thomas Crown Affair, Old school and Speed
Cast: Micheal Petrow, Martin Navarro , Mark Cowell and Steve Taylor
Trailer of the week : Rambo Last Blood and Terminator Dark Fate.

Welcome to The Reel Debaters, where real life meets reel life...
Each week you’ll hear 4 debaters sit down as they come up with a new tussle where they compare, contrast and insult each other with their takes for your listening pleasure. They'll either insert themselves into a story or see how they fare or bring the characters into real life scenarios that make less than no sense. As a bonus you'll get access from within the film industry and listen to "reel talks" about our favorite moments, scenes and stories.
