The Lovebirds: Review! To Stream Or Not To Stream

Do you remember “Date Night” with Steve Carell and Tina Fey? I didn’t even do it until I saw “The Lovebirds” and tried to think of another movie that had also wasted the appeal of two famous comic book performers on an action-comedy that managed to be so frantic, he is lazy.

Obviously there are other examples and it is possible that some of them are preferred to others. This, starring Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani, starts off promisingly, not just because Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani are the stars. The opening sequence shows their characters, Leilani and Jibran, in love with the type of editing that usually comes in the middle of a film like this. Then suddenly four years have passed, and I am about to break, having endured each other’s patience. Everything happens quickly enough to be interesting, to make you want to get to know this couple better.
