You People Netflix: Release Date, Plot, Cast, and More

Romantic comedies have always been some of the best, light-hearted, and fun movies, and you just can’t get enough of them. While it’s always fun to try and solve a murder mystery or hide behind your blanket during a scary scene, romantic comedies have their own charm, and you’re in luck, because a brilliant one is coming your way very soon, and will be titled, You People. It hasn’t been long since the movie has been announced and people are already clutching their stomachs with laughter with simply a glimpse into this movie (the stellar cast helps too.) 

You People, directed by Kenya Barris will focus on an interracial couple and their hardships, but we will talk more about that later in the article. As for Kenya Barris, he has previously worked on shows like Black-ish and BlackAF so you know You People will tickle your funny bone for the entire duration of the movie. The screenplay for You People is written by Kenya Barris, who has teamed up with one of the funniest men of our generation, Jonah Hill. We can’t wait to tell you more about You People. So buckle in and read everything you need to know about You People ahead of its release.

What Is The Plot of You People?

The official synopsis on Netflix reads, “A new couple fall in love and find themselves confronting societal expectations and generational differences amidst their families’ clashing cultures, in this comedy from Kenya Barris.” The synopsis gives us a fair idea about what to expect from the upcoming romantic comedy, You People. Neither the creators, nor the cast has revealed too many details about the plot, but that’s the best way to go when it comes to romantic comedies, because you need to go in with an open mind and heart and see what comes your way, and that’s exactly what will happen with You People. Albeit, as the trend goes, we probably will learn more about the plot closer to the release date.

The Plot of You People

You People deals with a very interesting concept of interracial relationships, and while they seem sweet and forward on paper, they can be a lot harder to navigate in reality. Different cultures, customs, foods, holidays, and many other things come into play when people from two different races fall in love and decide to get married. Marriage truly is a union of two families, and for that, the families need to be able to get along. So, it will be fun to see if the families of these love birds actually get together and approve of the relationship. Nevertheless, there will be a lot of laughter along the way, and if you’re in an interracial relationship, hopefully, you can get some tips on what not to do, because we’re certain Jonah Hill’s character has you covered there.

The Cast of You People

One of the main reasons You People began trending so much so fast was because of the cast. You People has an ensemble cast with a range of talented actors and actresses all across the board. The two main characters whose love story will be the focus of You People are Jonah Hill and Lauren London. Recently, Jonah Hill has been steering away from the comedy genre to showcase his versatility but fans are thrilled to have him back in this comedy. If you don’t know Jonah Hill already, you might recognize him from some of his most popular works which include 21 Jump Street, Superbad, War Dogs, and The Wolf of Wall Street. Hill has also worked as a writer and producer on several shows and movies. As for Lauren London, her previous work includes Without Remorse and The Perfect Match.

The Cast of You People

One other reason people are so excited about the upcoming romantic comedy, You People, is none other than Eddie Murphy. The man needs no introduction, but when you get the time, we recommend watching some of his movies including Dr. Dolittle, Coming to America, Beverly Hills Cop, and The Nutty Professor. Joining the cast of You People along with London, Hill and Murphy are Nia Long, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, David Duchovny, Mike Epps, Molly Gordon, Deon Cole, and Andrew Schulz amongst many others.

When and Where Can You Watch You People?

The countdown for You People has begun and it isn’t long before you will be doubling down with laughter. The upcoming romantic comedy is slated to release on the 27th of January, 2023. So, we will be bringing the new year in with love, laughter, and some family drama (with a happy ending, of course, this is still Hollywood.) 2023 is set to the release of several movies, so there will be a lot of competition, but we’re hoping You People stands out with its quirkiness and humor. In addition, no other movie can compete with a duo like Eddie Murphy and Jonah Hill, so bonus points to You People already!

Is There a Trailer for You People?

Netflix released a teaser trailer for You People recently, and viewers are already applauding the perfect comic timing and know that this movie will garner plenty of laughs from start to finish. The teaser only shows a conversation between Jonah Hill, Eddie Murphy, and Nia Long’s characters as they sit together for dinner and have a rather awkward conversation. The awkwardness is perfect because it works so well between Hill and Murphy, and that is exactly what the fans are looking forward to the most. Jonah Hill and Eddie Murphy have some of the most versatile careers in Hollywood, and this little teaser is proof that this duo can do just about anything, especially when put together.
