There’s a wealth of comic talent gathered for You People, the new comedy from black-ish creator Kenya Barris. Reuniting with Eddie Murphy following Coming 2 America, Barris directs and co-wrote the screenplay with star Jonah Hill, joined by Lauren London, Nia Long, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Molly Gordon, David Duchovny, Rhea Perlman, Deon Cole and Mike Epps. How can this movie go wrong?
Based on the previous teaser and this new trailer, it can’t go wrong. The film centers on an interracial couple, played by Hill and London, and the problems caused by their respective families which are very very different.
There are few better at examining multicultural families than Barris. Murphy appears to be at the top of razor-sharp game, and this just looks hilarious all around.
You People will hit Netflix on January 27th.
When a rideshare mix-up in LA brings Ezra Cohen (Jonah Hill) and Amira Mohammed (Lauren London) together, the two find themselves connecting over a shared love of streetwear and music. As they fall in love, their relationship is tested by their respective families: Ezra’s progressive and semi-woke parents (Julia Louis-Dreyfus and David Duchovny) and Amira’s unyielding yet concerned parents (Eddie Murphy and Nia Long) who inject themselves into their lives mercilessly. Kenya Barris’ feature film directorial debut is a modern love story set amidst clashing cultures and interfaith relationships. Co-written by Kenya Barris and Jonah Hill and produced by the two alongside Kevin Misher, the comedy features an all-star ensemble cast including Sam Jay, Elliott Gould, Travis Bennett, Molly Gordon, Rhea Perlman, Deon Cole, Andrea Savage, and Mike Epps.
