‘Palm Springs’ is a time-loop comedy with heart

We’re 88Nine’s Justin Barney and Milwaukee Film’s Kpolly. We’re buds, we like cinema — we’re Cinebuds.

“Palm Springs” is a new movie starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti that is streaming now on Hulu. It’s a dash of “Ace Ventura,” a heaping spoonful of “Groundhogs Day,” and a sprinkling of a Michael Schur sitcom like “The Good Place.”

Practically it’s a comedy, but under that it is a movie about the terrifying commitment of love and unflinchingly embracing that in the face of uncertainty. I. Loved. It. I loved it hard. I was not expecting to love it so much. I’m probably overselling it right now and possibly setting you up for a let down with my level of enthusiasm, but that is only because I want you to watch it so bad because I loved it so much.

How I love thee, let me count the ways, and I do, with Kpolly, this week on Cinebuds. Please dive into it with us in the podcast below.
