This movie has no right being this good
Release date: May 22, 2020
Director: Michael Showalter
Who should watch this movie: People in a happy relationship. Fans of Tina Fey’s filmography
When should you watch this movie: Not when you are going through a break-up. When you really need to laugh
The sell: I wanted so badly to hate this movie, but despite my best efforts, I was won over. I think I had prepared myself for another Always Be My Maybe i.e. two individually funny actors with no chemistry and a flat script, but The Lovebirds was not that at all. Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani play off of each other perfectly and the energy between them lands every joke with 10s across the board. It is laugh out loud funny the whole time, with just enough heartfelt content to shed a single tear. If you need a mental health break from the insanity of this world, watch this movie.
