Let the new streaming film reviews continue! Today your movie gurus discuss a new Netflix rom com murder mystery, wow talk about an interesting genre! The Lovebirds starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani. Extracurricular topics include inflation, movie trailers revealing too much, and the film Independence Day.

The Lovebirds is a fun witty movie with some great comedic parts throughout the film. There are also a handful of scenes where it falls short or just flat out does not need to be in the movie. Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani have excellent chemistry especially when they are arguing nonsense. Those are some of Matt’s favorite LOL scenes and he doesn’t LOL ever. It was a nice change of pace having the film based in New Orleans instead of New York City or LA like typical films of today. The writers also paid homage to previous great films like Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut and the spy rom com Date Night.

Is this film going to win a ton of awards and set records, nope. It is a fun exciting LOL movie that is well worth a watch if you have Netflix. Mike gives The Lovebirds an OK rating with 2.5 out of 5 Reels. Matt, always the more lenient reviewer, awards the film an average score of 3 out of 5 Reels.
