You Aren’t Ready for Palm Springs
Ryan Rojas for cinemacy.com
Now available to stream on Hulu, Palm
Springs (theatrical distribution from Neon) is
one of those movies that’s better going into
blind. Starting with Nyles (Andy Samberg) as
he shuffles through a Palm Springs rental on
the day of a friend’s wedding with apathetic
energy, you’ll likely feel as if you might’ve
missed something (don’t worry, you haven’t).
But soon enough, with the unexpected
introduction of Sarah, who throws Nyles’
day – and world – out of wack, you’re now
settled in for an all-out, joyous, and hilarious
comedy from the wacky, deranged mind of
The Lonely Island (Popstar).
The top-billed pairing of Andy Samberg
as the beer-cracking Nyles and Cristin Milioti
as manic and insecure Sarah make for a
delightful onscreen duo, whose chemistry
ranges from their having to navigate insane
waters together to finding a real romantic
connection as well. And beyond the film’s
“every day’s the same” gimmick – which is
executed wonderfully and earns real laughs
(with J.K. Simmons getting in on the fun
too) – there’s also a surprisingly thoughtful
and unexpected heart that the film derives
its energy from, that of each character’s
personal insecurities and existential dread
that ranges from love, mortality and our
place in the universe.
Brought to the screen with applause-worthy
comedic chops as well as deft emotional
hand by screenwriter Andy Siara and director
Max Barkabow (his first feature!), check out
this Sundance entry (and nominee for Grand
Jury Prize) instantly before you’ll want to
watch it again.
‘Palm Springs’ is now available to stream
on Hulu. •

News for the City of Good
Neighbors from an Old Guy
named Norb Huber
Why Not Be Happy?
Isn’t happiness a choice we
make for ourselves? We’re all so
tired of being over come with bad
news that we tend to forget that
we can be happy if we want to be.
Turn on the news and all you hear
about is death, sickness, viruses,
shootings, riots, brutality, and protests. Most
everything we see or hear we have no control
over. No matter how upset we get we really
cannot change much. So, why do we waste
our valuable time and energy worrying about
it all? The Internet and cable networks
have made the world small. Anything and
everything that happens in any corner of
the world we hear about it. Anyone who
seeks attention and screams loud enough
has a platform to tell their story. Just as we
feared that our kid’s brains would be fried if
they watched too much television
back in the day, now we all are in
front of screens for hours per day.
We even get messages telling us
how much “average screen time”
we had in the last week or day.
We hop into our cars and hear the
news from a live streaming podcast.
In our pockets, those screened
devices called “cell phones”, keep
us constantly in touch with what
is going on. Remember the day
when you heard some breaking news and
you rushed over to tell your friend? Now,
everyone knows the news as soon as it happens.
There is a rare time when you know
something that no one else knows in your
group. My seven-year-old grandson can tell
me the names of NBA players from almost
every team by watching YouTube video
replays. When does this slow down? What
can we do about this sensory overload? Will
we have withdrawal pains if we ever go cold
