What After We Collided is All About?
Hardin Scott meets an unknown homeless man a month after his split with Tessa Young, whom he rebuffs when the man tries to ask him a question. Tessa had an unsettling encounter with coworker Trevor Matthews on her first day as an intern at Vance Publishing. Christian Vance, the proprietor of Vance’s, brings Tessa, Trevor, and his secretary and girlfriend Kimberly to a work event in the Seattle region after being impressed with her performance.
Tessa and Trevor meet and impress a businessman interested in investing in Vance at a nightclub. Tessa dials Hardin while inebriated, forcing him to track her down. He walks into her hotel room to discover Trevor half-dressed (whose clothes were drying after Tessa accidentally spilt wine on them). Tessa fights Hardin before the two have sex, and Hardin kicks Trevor out of the room.
Hardin and Tessa fight again the next morning, before Tessa and Trevor leave with Vance, who tells his interns that he has obtained finance from the businessman. Tessa and Hardin both begin to regret calling it quits on their love. Hardin enters the flat with his mother Trish, who assumes the two are still dating, as Tessa comes to recover some possessions from the apartment she lived with Hardin.
Tessa goes along with it and enjoys spending time with Hardin and Trish, who confesses to Tessa the basis of Hardin’s personality issues: he was traumatised after witnessing Trish being raped by guys who owed money to his father Ken. Tessa pays a visit to her mother Carol’s house the next day, her birthday, and runs into her ex-boyfriend Noah. Tessa’s long-lost father had paid a visit to the house in an attempt to see her, which the two unintentionally expose. Tessa returns to Hardin’s apartment, feeling deceived, and resumes her connection with him.

The Making of After We Collided
The cast of this movie does a good job with the script they have, which as a viewer doesn’t appear to be much. As someone who has read the entire book series, it is evident that the writers’ major purpose in the 107 minutes they were allotted for this film was to squeeze in as much as possible from the book. As a result, the sequences that are supposed to have an emotional impact on the spectator are hollow and lack the emotional punch needed to develop true people.
One of the most memorable performances in the film comes from Dylan Sprouse, who portrays Trevor, Tessa’s new employee and eventual love triangle member, with a quick wit and awkwardly cute charm. Sprouse captures this character and leaves a lasting impact, leaving the audience eager to see how his narrative unfolds in the next picture.
The rest of the cast’s performances are mediocre at best, which is exacerbated by the confused and poorly placed script. While the first film was far from flawless, it did at least succeed in creating long-lasting and convincing chemistry between its characters, something that the sequel appears to have overlooked.
Hardin Scott himself does strike a successful note, as it appears Tiffin truly stepped up and engulfed himself in some of the film’s more gripping and emotional parts, letting the spectator to feel and connect the repercussions of Hardin’s sad and haunting background and why he acts the way he does.
