(2020) (Issa Rae, Kumail Nanjiani) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Comedy: After witnessing a murder moments after realizing their romantic relationship is over, a couple tries to find the killer to avoid being charged with the crime.
Leilani (ISSA RAE) and Jibran (KUMAIL NANJIANI) have been dating for four years, but have just realized that the culmination of irritating behavior and differences of opinion means their relationship is over. A moment after figuring that out on their way to a party, a bicyclist darts into the path of their car and they accidentally strike him. But the blow from that doesn't kill him. Instead, that comes from an unnamed cop -- who they end up nicknaming Moustache (PAUL SPARKS) -- who commandeers their car and drives over the bicyclist several times. He nearly kills them too, but the sound of nearby police cars sends him running away.
When another couple sees Leilani and Jibran near the body, they assume that those two killed the man. Realizing no one would believe their story, Jibran and Leilani flee the scene and then understand that they must find the real killer in order to clear their names. With only the late bicyclist's cell phone that's now in their possession, they eventually meet a Congressman's wife, Edie (ANNA CAMP), hoping for answers. But like everything else that night, that meeting quickly goes sideways and Leilani and Jibran barely escape with their lives. While avoiding the police and the killer, they follow the scant clues they uncover in hopes of proving their innocence.
