Film Review: Palm Springs

What the hell am I about to watch?

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.

Rating: NR

Genre: Comedy

Running Time: 90 mins

Director: Max Barbakow

Staring: Andy Samberg and Cristin Miloti

Distributor: Hulu


Well I'm still reading so I must be intrigued tell me more!


We follow Nyles through time loop that he stumbled on that he has to relive the same day over and over again. Think Groundhog Day if you will.


I personally didn't connect with them but I give them a break in the sense that it is a comedy film and I was able to laugh with them. Well developed and we can see their growth through the film.

Female Representation

Female lead that started out by sleeping with his sister finance on the night before the wedding moves on to learn time traveling to get out of the loop. So not the greatest of starts but she gets around to stepping out and overcoming her past.


That's all great and thanks but the real deets now!

Good movie. I laughed like a lot. So worth the hour and half of watching once out on Hulu.


Rhiannon viewed the film in 2D setting at Eccles Theatre at Sundance Film Festival on 30 January 2020.
