Relationships are hard, and they’re even harder when your well-meaning coupled-up friends are pushing you to get back out there again and try to join the world of the loving and living after a particularly harsh breakup. Such is the case with Megan (Analeigh Tipton) whose failed engagement a year prior has her imposing a self-isolation policy that consists of slouching around her apartment in her undies, much to the chagrin of her two roommates (Jessica Szohr and Kid Cudi), and lamenting about her former party and love-filled life.
Since she’s “Benjamin Button-ing,” as she calls it, her roommate Faiza (Szohr) suggests that she returns to the swing of things with a good ol’ fashioned one-night stand. It doesn’t have to be anything fancy or special, just join a dating site, bang a rando’ and get out of her funk so she can move on with her life. Thusly, Two Night Stand is born. Of course, since this is magical romantic comedy land, the first trailer for the film, which is directed by Max Nichols and written by Mark Hammer, has Megan wake up in the arms of a cutie pie named Alec (Miles Teller) instead of someone from the usual wretched hive of scum and villainy that 20-something women encounter on OKCupid and the like.
Megan is confident about her decision to go through with casual sex, and Alec isn’t that atrocious about their brief encounter. He makes a couple dumb jokes about this being her first time, and she’s on her way to making her Stride of Pride. But as the trailer asks, how do you do the walk of shame when you can’t get out the door? A massive snow storm makes it impossible for Megan to leave Alec’s building in the morning, and as the weatherman ominously states, it’s best if nobody goes anywhere for some time. This one-night stand has been extended indefinitely, and these lovebirds are going to get to know each other fast.
Although they’re not the biggest fans of each other, they’re going to use the forced time together to give each other constructive criticism on their “performances” and relationship advice for the next people who come along. Make the best of a bad situation, right? But as romantic comedies go, you can see it in their eyes — these two are going to fall for each other. Especially since the name of the film is Two Night Stand. These crazy kids are going to make it.
