Issa Rae And Kumail Ninjiani Are Lovebirds – A Short Review

Release Date: April 24

Starring: Issa Rae, Kumail Nanjiani, Anna Camp, etc.


Love isn’t always rosy; it’s a journey and can be made or marred by the unlikeliest of circumstances. For Jibran and Leilani, witnessing a murder turns out to be what ignites a new spark of passion they weren’t sure they still had in them, and, as it turns out, happens to be what sustains their relationship.

Kumail Ninjiani and Issa Rae, who are arguably two of the funniest people in present day Hollywood, breathe life into this clumsy, comic couple. And I thought they were fun to watch. Chemistry was average. I wasn’t really sold on the depth of their love or not-hate relationship, but it was enough to sustain the movie based on a very shaky, cliche plot.

It’s not perfect (which movie is anyway?) but you’re sure to have a good time if you watch it.
