Meteor Shower is set on a h ot night in Ojai, California, and Corky (Schumer) and her husband Norm (Shamos) are having another couple over to their home. Laura (Benanti) and Gerald (Key), though, aren’t looking for a casual evening of polite small talk with new friends. Eventually, t he two couples find themselves in a marital free – fall matched in velocity and peril only by the smoldering space rocks tearing through the sky.
