What happens when a handful of the greatest names in comedy join forces for a Netflix comedy film? Wine Country happens, and oh wow are we so lucky. Sure, Wine Country might not be everyone’s glass of house red (as blasphemous as that sounds), but it’s the ultimate summer comedy that a Saturday Night Live superfan could ever dream up. Without a doubt, the Amy Poehler-directed tour de force is the best new movie coming to Netflix this month.

To celebrate Rebecca’s (Rachel Dratch) 50th birthday, Abby (Amy Poehler) plans the perfect wine country getaway for a group of their friends and has everything plotted to the second. But when the gang gets together and the wine starts flowing, there’s no stopping the realities of their lives from seeping into their carefree excursion full of alcohol and gossip. Before long, the group of women feels uncertain about their friendships and futures, but they figure it out together in this heartfelt and hysterically funny love letter to female friendship.

Wine Country is the feature directorial debut of national treasure Amy Poehler from a script written by former Saturday Night Live staff writer and Up All Night creator (among other things) Emily Spivey and Up All Night writer Liz Cackowski. The film is a victory lap, a celebration, a moment, and a million other wonderful things. With any luck, this will be the first film of a great friendship between Poehler and Netflix. Join the fun when Wine Country premieres May 10!
