‘The Lovebirds’ – A Short Movie Review

by Lee Hernly, Editor

While we continue in lockdown this Memorial Day weekend, my wife and I streamed ‘The Lovebirds,’ the new romaction-comedy starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani. The movie dropped on Netflix Friday. The pair play a couple on the verge of breaking up (arguing how they’d fare on The Amazing Race) and then are thrust into a life-threatening (ok I’ll just say it – somewhat absurd) situation where they’re chased by a shadowy killer cop (Paul Sparks) and New Orleans Police.

If you are a fan of Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani as both of us are, then you will enjoy the comedic action of ‘The Lovebirds’ (with a bit of Eyes Wide Shut thrown in) as Director Michael Showalter does his best with an average script. The best part is, the movie made my wife and I laugh and that’s a good thing as we continue to navigate this pandemic. I’d give it 3 1/2 stars out of five.

A more extensive review of the film is here. You can find more suggestions on what to stream at home here.
