Palm Springs (2020)

When carefree Nyles and reluctant maid of honor Sarah have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding, things get complicated when they find themselves unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other.

Axel Fritzler

This 2020 was the perfect timing for a rom-com about being lonely and the need to share your life with someone else because everyday feels the same.

Just when you think time loop comedies have already been repetitiously overdone (irony), this breath of fresh air comes along.

Palm Springs is a perfectly pleasant time loop movie that distinguishes itself thanks to its stars - nobody needs to twist my arm to watch Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti or J.K. Simmons, and together they're great - and with a couple of twists on the formula. Chief among these is that they are trapped in the time loop together, which gives the film the chance to explore what it means to be facing eternity with someone else, and further what dynamic would be created if one of the people were responsible for giving the other that kind of immortality. It certainly sparks discussion, and not just of the metaphysical sort, as there are a couple of ambiguous moments that will have some spinning theories (which I think is usually a good thing for SF movies, though I'm not sure the paradoxes actually make sense if you look at them too hard). The important thing is whether it's funny - yes, it is - romantic - yes, that too - and has something to say about the human condition - in Simmons' character perhaps more than the others, but sure.
