The Lovebirds was released on Netflix earlier this month. The romantic-comedy-murder-mystery is from Paramount Pictures and directed by Michael Showalter and written by Aaron Abrams and Brendan Gall. The Lovebirds stars Issa Rae (Insecure, The Photograph) and soon to be Marvel’s The Eternals star Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley, Stuber) as Leilani and Jibran, the bickering and weathered couple on the brink of breaking up who are thrust into a wild adventure that send them on a zany hunt for clues to clear their names.You can read the full review written by LaNeysha here.
To change things up a bit, LaNeysha and Carolyn thought it would be fun to record our episode live on Instagram, so our listeners could get a chance to see how we are. They enjoyed interacting with others who enjoyed the film as much as they did. As always, the ladies discussed their likes and dislikes of the films, and answered questions from those who tuned in.
