Not your best romcom, but Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae make this film a pleasant distraction. Both Nanjiani and Rae are enormously talented, but the comedy is not as funny as it should have been.

At the end of the day, The Lovebirds feels like a bad first date. You go in full of hope and a mind for flirting and fun and leave without a meaningful connection. The cons far outweigh the pros, making it hard to recommend.

The film does a good job of balancing the seemingly disparate genres - the humour levels the action well. But beyond that, it's all just obtuse clutter...
May 26, 2020
Rae and Nanjiani are charismatic stars whose rise has been nice to watch... Neither of them gets to be at their best.

You won't love The Lovebirds, but you'll probably like it as a friend.
May 26, 2020
Fortunately, there's enough skill on display that The Lovebirds is still plenty enjoyable, as long as you don't think too hard about it.

It belongs in that category of movies each should ask to be left out of any career achievement retrospective montages awaiting them down the road.
May 26, 2020
The chemistry between stars Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae keeps the romantic comedy charming.
May 26, 2020
Nanjiani and Rae are the undisputed MVP's of this film, with their charm and humor rescuing it from utter mediocrity.
May 26, 2020
It is unlikely to be remembered as anything more than a diversionary lark. But it does stand as a testament to the ways in which the right actors can elevate even the most lackluster of material.

The Lovebirds greatly benefits from the interaction between Nanjiani and Issa Rae. [Full review in Spanish]

It's the banter between the two [leads] that kept me engaged with this movie.

The Lovebirds might have underwhelmed in a movie theater but works just fine in the very different circumstances in which it has been unveiled.
May 26, 2020
It had just enough laughs and chemistry to give a mild recommendation.
May 25, 2020
It's easily digested and entertaining "in the moment", but I doubt it's going to be remembered in a few years. [Full review in Spanish]
May 25, 2020
A nice enough movie to while away an afternoon, but it is only notable for the combined star wattage of Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae.
May 25, 2020
The comedic chemistry of its protagonists fuels the amusing rom-com. [Full review in Spanish]
May 25, 2020
This is exactly the kind of movie you want to watch on Netflix, an inoffensive, silly and riotous comedy with sharp dialogue, that comes in at a brisk 87 minutes.
May 24, 2020
When The Lovebirds gives Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani room to exercise their mastery in comedic timing and delivery it is enormously enjoyable, but the simplistic plot and uninspired writing leaves this crime comedy grounded.
May 24, 2020
The hilarious chemistry between Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae single handedly saves this lazy rom-com. [Full review in Spanish]
