The Lovebirds (2020)

An uncommon chemistry between Issa and kumail carries this unconventional date night to remember.

Regan Humphrey

Heartbreak is on the horizon for lovers Jibran (Kumail Nanjiani) and Leilani (Issa Rae). The honeymoon phase of their courtship is over, and all that’s left is a cold, argumentative, distance. But on the day their breakup is officially pending, a chance encounter with a hitman sends their last date night into total chaos. On the run from a murderer, while simultaneously incriminated by his crime, they attempt to discover the murderer’s motive and identity before being taken into police custody. Knowing the truth might be their only defense against arrest, trial, and prison for a crime they did not commit.
