“Palm Springs”: Film Review Podcast

Posted: July 13th, 2020 | Filed under: Cinema, Film Reviews Podcast | No Comments »

I’m certainly among the punditocracy who have oft wondered, more than a might dismissively, why don’t they make romantic comedies like they used to?

You know, where have you gone Annie Hall, the nation turns its lonely eyes to you?

So, when a flick comes along where the would be couple actually have some chemistry, where there’s even a smidge of uniqueness how the tale is told, when it’s, oh my heavens, funny . . . well, I fall prey to its charms.

As well we all should.

And it’s not like we don’t need some light fluff in these times.

All of which is to say, as if you couldn’t guess, that I really enjoyed this rom com, starring Andy Samberg and Cristin Miloti, with supporting help from J.K. Simmons.

There’s a big plotline hook that will be familiar, but this sweet film works nonetheless.

So, hopefully I’ve lured you in without saying much at all about the movie. Listen to the podcast below to find out more.
