"I have never felt so understood by somebody in my entire life." Netflix has debuted the full-length official trailer for You People, a new comedy film from the creator / writer of "Black-ish" - Kenya Barris. He co-wrote the screenplay for this with Jonah Hill. A new couple and their families find themselves examining modern love and family dynamics amidst clashing cultures, societal expectations & generational differences in this comedy from Barris. Jonah Hill & Lauren London star as the main couple, who try to introduce their families to each other with disastrous results. The full cast includes Eddie Murphy, Nia Long, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, David Duchovny, Sam Jay, Elliott Gould, Travis Bennett, Molly Gordon, Rhea Perlman, Deon Cole, Andrea Savage, and Mike Epps. This almost seems like it'll be twist on a Guess Who's Coming to Dinner or Meet the Parents, with modern comedy. There's a few cringe and oddly unfunny scenes in this, along with a few genuinely hilarious, awkward moments that make it seem like it will be fun.
Here's the main official trailer (+ posters) for Kenya Barris' You People, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
