Palm Springs is a 2020 American romantic comedy film directed by Max Barbakow. It premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.


When carefree Nyles (Andy Samberg) and reluctant maid of honor Sarah (Cristin Milioti) have a chance encounter at a Palm Springs wedding, things get complicated the next morning when they find themselves unable to escape the venue, themselves, or each other.[1]



The project was initially announced in November 2018 after it secured a tax credit to film in California, namely the Palm Springs area. Andy Samberg was revealed as starring in the film.[2] In March 2019, Cristin Milioti and J. K. Simmons joined the cast.[3] Camila Mendes was added in April.[4]

Filming began in April 2019.[5]


It had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 26, 2020.[6] Shortly after, Neon and Hulu acquired distribution rights to the film.[7] The purchase of this film by Neon and Hulu broke the previous record for highest sale of a film from Sundance by $0.69.[8]
