‘Palm Springs’ (the MOVIE)

Did you know that there is a movie about Palm Springs? … with very ‘Groundhog Day’ vibes…? We didn’t!

And to be honest there are far worse places to be stuck for eternity than Palm Springs! We love Palm Springs and so much of modern culture has made palm springs a haven of hipster hotels, bohemian weddings and Coachella Fest Vibes. So its no surprise to us that this desert city has become the location for a ‘copycat time-loop’ film.

The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January of 2020. Not to mention, “Palm Springs” broke records for the biggest sale in the festival’s history, selling for a massive $17.5 million — and 69 cents.

What’s it about?
‘Palm Springs’ is a 2020 American romantic comedy film directed by Max Barbakow. It stars Andy Samberg, Cristin Milioti, Peter Gallagher, and J.K. Simmons.

The premise of the story begins with a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding between carefree Nyles (Andy Samberg) and reluctant maid of honor Sarah (Cristin Milioti). Things get complicated the next morning when they find themselves unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other.

‘Palm Springs’ is COMING to HULU July 10, 2020.

However, the question we are ALL asking is…How much of this film was filmed in Palm Springs?

Will you be watching it to find out? Like is that Pappy and Harriets? or…? Let us know what you see and if anything looks familiar.

Well… that’s disappointing. So let’s see how well they do depicting our Palm Springs!
