Movie Review: Palm Springs

by @edent | # # #

Two people sat on pool floats, drinking beer.

When carefree Nyles and reluctant maid of honour 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.

It’s almost impossible to review this movie without giving away the twists and turns that it takes. Just know that it is deeply funny in unexpected ways.

It stars the cop from the TV sitcom and the mom from HIMYM (look, just accept that they play the same characters) and has a bunch of “Oh! That’s the guy who was in that thing…!” actors.

Maybe it was the two or three cocktails I had before watching – but this is a perfect lockdown comedy. It’s smart, silly, and just the right amount of schmaltzy.

It works best if you go into it blind. And, in many ways, isn’t that what love is all about?
