While stuck at a wedding in Palm Springs, Nyles (Andy Samberg) meets Sarah (Cristin Milioti), the maid of honor and family black sheep. After he rescues her from a disastrous toast, Sarah becomes drawn to Nyles and his offbeat nihilism. But when their impromptu tryst is thwarted by a surreal interruption, Sarah must join Nyles in embracing the idea that nothing really matters, and they begin wreaking spirited havoc on the wedding celebration.
Nyles is drinking "Akupara" beer. In Sanskrit, Akupara means "unlimited, unbounded" and in Hinduism, it's the name of a tortoise described as "one who is without death." "If you look close on that label, there's a graphic that kind of explains the mythology of the world and the earthquake," Director Max Barbakow said, recommending a google of Akupara that will take you down a "nice little wormhole, that explains some of the metaphysics behind the movie." He credits production designer Jason Kisvarday with creating the look of the beer. See more »
When Sarah wakes up Nyles is already in the pool with his friend Jerry, which makes it impossible for Sarah to sneak out to study when Nyles tries to find her every morning. However, Nyles could never find her because she never woke up in her own room, and it would be easy to sneak out undetected without going by the pool. See more »
The second you fall asleep, it all just goes back to the start.

I really wasn't expecting a ton from this movie, I expected a pretty decent romantic comedy and I also love Andy so I was excited to give it a shot. But WOW was I very very pleasantly surprised!! I literally started it over immediately after finishing it cause I liked it so much. Completely not what I was expecting but I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. I laughed out loud multiple times, and the story is completely amazing in my opinion. Highly recommend if you're wanting a quirky comedy, but it also has very cute moments. LOVED it. I hope it gets the recognition it deserves.
