Between a coronavirus outbreak that refuses to quit, lockdowns that keep us cooped up at home, and a nail-biting election on the horizon, it can often feel as though we’re stuck in an infinite time loop—a somewhat entertaining-yet-terrifying circle of surrealism that has upended our lives and forced us to see the world anew.

And if you’re like most people, you’ve adjusted to this new reality by taking an exorbitant number of trips to the fridge and binge-watching movies with your loved ones, thanks to a series of newly-added and top-rated titles that have recently been added to go-to streaming networks like Netflix and Hulu.

As one of the most anticipated movies coming to the expansive Hulu roster this month, Palm Springs is a must-see film for anyone who’s felt as though they’ve been stuck in an alternate reality for the past few months, and you can watch it for free when you sign up for a free 30-day Hulu trial today.

Starring Andy Samberg (SNL, That’s My Boy), Cristin Milioti (How I Met Your Mother, Wolf of Wall Street) and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash, Juno), Palm Springs embodies the mind-altering madness that all of us have collectively felt since the outbreak of the coronavirus.

While stuck at a wedding in Palm Springs, Nyles (Andy Samberg) meets Sarah (Cristin Milioti), and the two are quickly drawn into a surreal universe in which they discover that nothing really matters and they've been given free reign to do pretty much whatever they want.

Hilarity, heartbreak, and more than a few burritos follow, and what began as a somewhat standard and familiar wedding quickly devolves into a sea of pandemonium and comedy-filled havoc. Sound familiar?

Perhaps the only real difference between Nyles and the rest of us in the real world is that when Nyles wakes up next to Sarah each morning, he’s stuck at a wedding with a girlfriend he’s just not that into. Since most of us are lucky enough to be stuck at home with a significant other that we actually enjoy, why not ride out the rest of our absurd pandemic-filled alternate reality by hunkering down and watching Nyles and Sarah endure theirs?

Palm Springs will make you cry, laugh, and probably crave a beer. Sign up for a free 30-day Hulu trial today in order to watch this cinematic gem for free, and if you feel like continuing your subscription after the 30-day period is up you'll be able to keep it at the discounted rate of just $5.99/month.
