Issa Rae and Kumail Nanjiani display expert timing as the unhappy couple caught up a deadly criminal case.

Fortunately, there's enough skill on display that The Lovebirds is still plenty enjoyable, as long as you don't think too hard about it.

It belongs in that category of movies each should ask to be left out of any career achievement retrospective montages awaiting them down the road.

It is unlikely to be remembered as anything more than a diversionary lark. But it does stand as a testament to the ways in which the right actors can elevate even the most lackluster of material.
