      What to know

      Critics Consensus

      A pair of beloved stars and a refreshingly mature take on rom-com tropes are almost enough to overcome What Happens Later's increasingly cloying execution. Read critic reviews

      Movie Info

      Two ex lovers, Bill (David Duchovny) and Willa (Meg Ryan) get snowed in at a regional airport overnight. Indefinitely delayed, Willa, a magical thinker, and Bill, a catastrophic one, find themselves just as attracted to and annoyed by one another as they did decades earlier. But as they unpack the riddle of their mutual past and compare their lives to the dreams they once shared, they begin to wonder if their reunion is mere coincidence, or something more enchanted.
