    An inconsequential shift as the continents drift.

    love that show and he does have moments on it but I feel like it's always reacting to/acting with someone else? usually Melissa

    maybe it was the same in this movie but yeah he really surprised me here in a good way

    it was super distracting that his name was Nyles, like imagine you're watching a romcom and the guy is named Chandler
    Andy and Cristin had great chemistry and someone has to do the denim outfits as a couples costume when Halloween exists again
    I love that Portia always plays Portia

    I absolutely loved this movie but legit sought the thread out specifically to have somewhere to post about how the needle-drop of "The Brazilian" by Genesis is an all-timer.

    I must now go to the source Supporter

    I went into this completely blind (didn’t watch the trailer) so I had no idea they were kicking it off with Nyles already having been trapped in the loop for years and that was such an interesting way to reframe the concept. It made Sarah’s introduction into the whole thing so much fun. I loved that it wasn’t the usual “what is going on, I already did this” for a whole day. Instead she does that for like five minutes, spots Nyles hanging out in the pool, and then just lunges at him because she knows he did something terrible to her.

    I was real curious about June Squibb’s line at the end to Sarah about leaving. Seemed like it could be taken to mean that she might have known about the loop. Left me wondering how many other people might be trapped there.

    I was right. Prestigious

    a real quote from one of my friends I watched this with
    "what kind of name is Nyles... wasn't he that little bitch in Frasier?"

    No one should speak ill of any David Hyde Pierce character.

    this was delightful.

    one thing that I was confused about (and I could've just completely missed it), but why did Roy originally get crystal meth from Nyles and get stuck in that loop? my assumption is that he was originally invited to the wedding and then he just stopped going to the wedding after a little while of torturing Nyles so that he could stay with his family. like I said, I could've completely missed the explanation.

    Yeah Roy was just a regular, bored wedding guest in one of Nyles' loops, it just happened to be the right set of circumstances that got the two of them talking and having a blast. It was Roy's idea to get some coke, and then the rest is history. I think he just stopped going to the wedding after awhile because, why bother?

    I did have a second where I was curious what Roy had figured out to tell his family every day that he suddenly wasn’t gonna be going to that wedding haha. If I tried to do that my girlfriend would rip me apart for bailing the day of the event after RSVPing :crylaugh:

    Watched this last night, and thought it was a gem. Samberg and Milioti had insane chemistry.
