This week on End Credits, we find the love. The news has been filled with all kinds of hate and scary things lately, but for this episode, we’re going to log on to Netflix and review the new outrageous rom-com, The Lovebirds. Before that, we’re going to get back to the classic End Credits of old, and tell you about what’s been happening in movie news lately.
This Wednesday, June 3, at 2 pm, Adam A. Donaldson and Peter Salmon will discuss:
What’s in the News? Normally on End Credits, we spend the first half of the show talking about the latest in pop culture news, but with the format getting remixed because of COVID-19, we haven’t been able to stay on top of things like we should. Well, this week, we’re going to review some of the latest news, from casting choices, to new releases, to the fate of the exhibition business itself!
REVIEW: The Lovebirds (2020). The last time that Kumail Nanjiani and Michael Showalter teamed up it was for the personal, and Oscar-nominated The Big Sick. The Lovebirds is not that. It’s more silly, more adventurous, and it was written by the team that brought you Young People F**king, but can it possibly stand on its own in the shadow of The Big Stick, and can it stand out having been shuffled to Netflix after its theatrical release was cancelled?
End Credits is on CFRU 93.3 fm and cfru.ca Wednesday at 2 pm.
