Kierre's Review of You People 2023 ★★★

Watched Jan 29, 2023

You People stars Jonah Hill as a Jewish Podcaster named Ezra who meets an African American woman named Amira and they form a friendship that turns into a relationship. They eventually decide to get married but must appease their parents, who on Ezra's side are of a devout Jewish faith, and on Amari's side are Militant, Black Activists/Muslims. The film co-stars Eddie Murphy, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, David Duchovny, Nia Long, Sam Jay, and Rhea Perlman.

I found this film to be pretty funny. It is far from perfect, but I had enough laughs to say I enjoyed it. It is basically a modern-day version of "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" but even more comedic in this scenario. I'm not sure all audiences will enjoy this film as it is very much geared to Black and Hip-Hop culture. So, on the one hand comedy is comedy, but I feel many of the jokes and references may go over some viewer's heads if they are not well-versed in Hip-hop music and culture. However, I thought Eddie Murphy stole the show, and I had many laughs throughout this film.
