The Lovebirds: Covid pick of the day!

Netflix The Lovebirds is a charming story featuring Kumail Nanjiani as Jibran and Issa Rae as Leilani. Comedian, actor, screenwriter and podcaster Nanjiani is most known for his work as Dinesh on Silicon Valley. Issa Rae, actress, writer, producer and star of Insecure and The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl.

Jibran and Leilani are discussing their relationship when they hit a cyclist. This funny movie follows the couple as they try to prove their innocence and run into all kinds of unusual and freaky characters. Directed by Michael Showalter from a screenplay by Aaron Abrams and Brendan Gall, you get the sense they let the characters have a lot of input and fun with their roles. Nanjiani and Rae spread their wings make every minute count for some laugh out loud moments. This movie doesn't waste a minute. Nanjiani delivers the best straight face lines. Look out for the Queen 'We Will Rock You' reference for a big ass haw haw.

The Lovebirds is a man née couple on the run mixed in with a love story and works perfectly. Like I said before, it's so charming and a real feel good show for these hard times we're in. Check it out. Five FYIFAFT fuck you's!!
