23. The Lovebirds

What’s more romantic than seeing someone murdering a person with the car you were taking to a party? A whole lot but that’s just the beginning of what happens in The Lovebirds. The film stars Issa Rae, Kumail Nanjiani, Paul Sparks, Anna Camp, Nicholas X. Parsons, Kyle Bornheimer, Barry Rothbart, and Catherine Cohen.

It all starts when Jibran (Nanjiani) and Leilani (Rae) break up as they are going to a party together. They’ve been together for four years. Unfortunately, they never make it to the party.

First, they hit a bicyclist with their car, but the guy runs away. Another man, claiming to be police, takes their car and uses it to repeatedly run over the cyclist and kill him. Like any self-respecting person, Jibran and Leilani run.

While on the run, the difference in the two starts to show. Jibran is all about turning themselves in and telling the police what they saw. Leilani is having none of that. She knows racial profiling will ensure they are accused of the crimes. She suggests meeting a woman named Edie who the dead guy was meant to meet with and figure out what’s going on.

But nothing about this night is going as planned. Edie and the meeting are a setup and the couple is taken and tied up. How will they get out of this night alive? You’ll have to watch and see. If nothing else, with Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani, The Lovebirds is bound to make you laugh a few times.

If you like your romances with a bit more action and comedy than anything else, this is the film for you!
