Sarah is at her sister’s wedding in Palm Springs. She sneaks off for a quickie with a guest named, Nyles, when they are attacked by a crazy man. Nyles drags himself into a cave while yelling after Sarah not to follow him. Unfortunately for Sarah, she does not listen. By entering the cave, she has magically entered into a time loop were she, Nyles, and the crazy man named, Roy, are destined to repeat the day of the wedding continuously. They choose to live each day a little differently. Some days are catastrophic – ending in terrible deaths. Some days are confusing – like when dinosaurs roamed the desert. Other days they spend relaxing and becoming closer; drifting off to sleep peacefully. But it’s always the same. The next day it forever Sarah’s sister’s wedding. After multiple attempts Sarah finally figures out how to break the time loop. Nyles and Roy then ultimately choose to follow after her finally closing the loop.

Is it worth watching: Sure, this is an ok movie. But it’s just ok. I really wanted to love this movie. It has Andy Samberg. I think he’s a phenomenal actor and comedian. It has really good reviews. Truth is, it’s just ok. It’s just a repeat of a formula “Groundhog Day” storyline with a bit of rom-com tropes thrown in. It has some cute parts. It also has some tedious, cliches. I’d rather just watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine instead.

Once upon a time, Sharon was invited to attend a comic convention. She had always wanted to go to a comic-con but thought it was out of her reach. While at this convention, she met Richard who asked her if she could write. She scoffed. Of course she was capable of writing. But then he clarified and asked if she would be willing to a be a writer for TBK Magazine. She agreed. Little did she know that she was signing on to become a podcaster, assistant editor of the magazine, Vice President of a publishing company, best mensch, and a sister. Her whole world would expand for the better after that trip in 2016. She would be forever grateful. The magazine would be her safe haven and the staff would become a part of her family. And still to this day, Richard has not fulfilled his promise of singing the cow song to Sharon.   Sharon was born in mid 1980’s and raised in Northeastern Arkansas. She has been married to her childhood sweetheart, Jesse, since 2004. They have two amazing sons. Outside of her official TBK responsibilities, she works as a nurse.   She loves theater, costumes, cosplay, and Halloween. She is addicted to Chapstick and will ALWAYS have at least one with her at all times. She despises spiral staircase, escalators, and people that do not understand how four way stops work.
