Editorial Reviews

A riveting and unique take on a couple s relationship, Peter and Vandy takes us on a journey, showing us the romantic beginnings and shaky turns that inevitably develop after Peter, a terminally insecure architect, falls for art gallery employee, Vandy. With star-making performances by Jason Ritter and Jess Weixler, the film is an innovative and fresh look at the relationship of a young couple in Manhattan, the exhilaration and frustrations love can bring.

By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on January 10, 2011
Format: DVD
"Peter and Vandy," a chronologically scrambled romance, has charm and likability to spare. This compact excursion through the highs and lows of a relationship in flux has one major problem, though. The inevitable comparison to the more polished "(500) Days of Summer" is a rather large liability. Don't get me wrong, I thought "Peter and Vandy" brought some very truthful moments to the screen--but, ultimately, it seemed a bit slight. Whereas "(500) Day of Summer" was one of my favorite films of its year, "Peter and Vandy" was a pleasant way to spend about seventy-five minutes. If you like relationship based dramas, I'd never discourage giving this piece a look--but, like I said, that other movie (I won't say its name again) would get a rave recommendation.

The primary selling point of "Peter and Vandy" has got to be its lead, Jason Ritter. Paired with Jess Weixler, Ritter's Peter exemplifies the modern "man child" and his struggle to take hold of responsibility and commitment. Ritter is a terrifically appealing actor and is oftentimes more interesting than the material he appears in. And while I liked Weixler, she does come across a bit flat in comparison. Anyone who has been in a relationship will be able to identify with key scenes in "Peter and Vandy," and yet the unpredictable nature of what brings people together and tears them apart never really seemed very unpredictable.

Okay, I lied. I'm going to mention "(500) Days of Summer" again. I know that some people were put off by its quirky effects and visual tomfoolery (which, of course, I loved). If, however, you were intrigued by its narrative structure and want to see something similar but without all these bells and whistles, then "Peter and Vandy" would be an ideal choice! Liked Ritter and thought the film was pleasant--entertaining in the now, I'm afraid I won't remember much about "Peter and Vandy" in a few months. KGHarris, 1/11.

***SPOILER ALERT***
One couple's stormy relationship is examined out of chronological order in this drama written and directed by Jay DiPietro, adapted from his play. Peter (Jason Ritter) and Vandy (Jess Weixler) meet when both are college students; they fall in love and live together for a while, but on a certain fundamental level they're never fully comfortable with one another, and eventually they go their separate ways. But rather than tell their story from beginning to end, Peter and Vandy jumps back and forth in time, with the couple midway through their romance before we've seen their first date. DiPietro allows us to see how the flaws in their relationship -- Peter's discomfort around Vandy and their habit of bickering about petty things -- were present at the beginning, lurking around the corner even in their happiest moments.

I admit that I didn't sit through the whole film so it's possible that it may have picked up towards the end. I think this is definitely a film for a certain group and I'm not sure what group that would be; I just know that I'm not in it. Read on and see it this appeals to you.

Peter and Vandy are 20-ish, attractive, middle class white kids who live and work in New York City. I guess Peter is an architect and Vandy works in a gallery; I got that from the Amazon review. They live in a hip apartment and talk about things like whether to go out to eat or order in, and if so, should it be Thai, Chinese or VietNamese. Peter makes a joke that some dish in the Vietnamese restaurant tastes like vagina and this promotes hysterical laughter when they actually get there. If this kind of thing appeals to you then you'll love this film. If not, well maybe not bother.

The actors are fine. He is a fresh-faced looking guy who has a lot of innocent naturalness that makes him likable. She looks a lot like Kate Winslett but is even more beautiful, but unfortunately doesn't act that well.

I think that whether or not you'll like this film depends on how entranced you are by young, middle class New Yorkers saying cute things. Or sort of cute things.

Only 75 mins long, this little indie covers a lot of ground by cutting and time shifting throughout. We see the couple at various stages of their relationship, all jumbled up at once throughout. Interesting gimmick and it doesn't detract. No plot. Just the arc of a relationship, and a not especially real one, at that. Still, this holds your attention for its short duration.

A not good relationship is presented in a non-liner fashion perhaps in an effort to make this watchable. An attractive woman encounters a guy who really has nothing nice to say. He is able to encounter her again and they have a relationship, mostly bad. Why she has any feelings for him (other than perhaps pity is unknown.

The director or editor must have realized this was unwatchable and decided to mix the scenes all up like they are a collection of memories with no chronological order so the view must endure the whole thing and towards the end we see the basis of the whole thing. Swearing. Avoid this!

Peter & Vandy is the story of a romance that waxed and waned over the years. The acting by the leads, Jason Ritter and Jess Wexler, is superb, and there are quite a number of outstanding and amusing scenes. Prime among them are the meeting of the hero and heroine in a New York park, and their argument over the making of a peanut butter sandwich. However, the story is told in non-chronological order, which can take some adjusting to. If one can get over this hurdle, this will prove to be worthwhile viewing.
