Movie Review

Palm Springs (2020)

Palm Springs (2020) is a romantic comedy that involves a time loop, with the same day repeating for the lead couple played by Andy Samberg from Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and Cristin Milioti from How I met your mother? It was fun to watch.

For a wedding of her best friend, Misty and her boyfriend Nyles (Andy Samberg) goes to a resort in Palm Springs. There Nyles gets stuck for unknown reasons in a time loop with the wedding day keeps happening over and over for no reasons and it affects only him. Soon he is joined by the bride’s sister Sarah (Cristin Milioti). Just like in a recent film The Map of Tiny Perfect Things (2021) featuring a time loop, Palm Springs too is about the love that develops between the couple, it talks nothing about why this phenomenon happens.

For a film like this to work, the lead actors have to exhibit their helplessness which Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti have done well.
