Palm Springs - Review
Today, Tomorrow, It's All the Same. 4.5 / 5
Directed by Max Barbakow.
When carefree Nyles and reluctant maid of honor Sarah have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding, things get complicated as they are unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other.
When Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti are your two leads, you don’t even need to know the plot to know that you're in for a good time.
Thankfully, the premise and execution of Palm Springs are just as impressive and surprising as the cast. It's a real achievement to make the time-loop plot feel like something we haven't seen a thousand times before (sorry) but the mix of outlandish comedy and the romantic subplot helps this feel fresh and exciting.
The story is only elevated by Samberg and Milioti's chemistry. Their comedic timing and infectious energy pour through the screen and I truly believed their connection.
A complete surprise - hilarious, touching, and one of the best of the year.
