Part four of our wedding series brings us to a recent classic. On the surface, Palm Springs might sound a bit too much like Groundhog Day. But dig a little deeper, and this is a much darker and philosophical counterpart. In a brief synopsis, a young woman (Cristin Milioti) attends her sister’s wedding, where she meets a kooky, cocky stranger (Andy Samberg). They vanish into the Palm Springs desert for a little nookie, where she is unknowingly pulled into a mysterious, magical cave. Afterwards, she finds herself stuck in a loop of this exact day, with this nihilistic goofball as her only true companion.
Palm Springs is one of my recent favorites, and I loved discussing it with the guys. Along the way, we downed some outstanding Cabernet from Trapiche Winery, out of Argentina. It’s a rich, full-bodied red that clocks in around $10, perfect for any wedding reception.
Next–our wedding bonanza concludes with an 80s masterpiece you might not expect!
