Hi everybody! Welcome to the Reel Film Nerds Podcast Episode 179, wow really? That’s a lot of talking right there! Today your host’s not talented Matt and Mysterious Mike Talent review and discuss the brand new Hulu Original Film Palm Springs. Not time loop related topics include AIMS testing, Top Gun: Maverick, and the infamous Groundhog Day.
Palm Springs is a really fun and poignant comedy that might hit a little too close to home during our current pandemic. This movie takes the infinite time loop genre and adds a second person to the mix. Instead of one person experiencing the day alone like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day we get Nyles, played by Andy Samberg, and Sarah, played by Cristin Milioti, going through the single day loop together. This premise leads to extreme antics, hatred, and even romance. Palm Springs is a really fun movie that is not a waste of an hour and a half. Everyone needs a good laugh and this film is full of them. Mike Talent, always the cynic, gives the film 3 out of 5 Reels. Matt liked it just a smidge more doling out 3.5 out of 5 Reels for the desert rom-com.
Next week is Mike’s pick and he has chosen a movie you probably did not even know existed. Guns Akimbo starring Samara Weaving and Daniel Radcliffe. The New Zealand action comedy thriller is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video. Thanks for listening to our pod, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. Chat at you next week!
