Palm Springs
2020
Unhappy about being maid of honor at her sister's destination wedding, Sarah is surprised as she clicks with nihilistic Nyles, a bridesmaid's date who saves Sarah from a wedding toast. But a bizarre intrusion throws a monkey wrench into their hookup.

Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”

I really enjoyed this romantic comedy. Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti, and J.K. Simmons are pros who know exactly how to play every scene just right. There's an unusual amount of darkness in this, but I appreciated the movie's honesty as its characters grappled with saddening events, rather than glossing over it like most rom-coms. That said, I could have done without a few Hollywood cliches.

Warning: The trailer and most online articles give away the true subject of the film. Avoid them! This movie is on Hulu; I recommend just watching it cold and enjoying the surprises as they come.
