Palm Springs is way, way better and weirder than I expected it to be.
My topline review is that Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti are perfectly cast and you should go watch this film on Hulu without reading anything more. Seriously, don’t even watch the trailer I’ve embedded below — it’s good, and you’ll have a better time if you go in knowing less.
However, I know that’s not good enough for some folks, so here are some vague plot details: The premise (which is revealed early on, but this is your last chance to turn back) is that Samberg is living the same day over and over again, much like his SNL forefather Bill Murray.
However, this is a time loop movie with a fresh take on the Groundhog Day formula, and I really appreciated the myriad ways the movie second-guesses what you think will happen next. And I LOVED the chemistry between the two leads, who need to do more together ASAP.
