Netflix released a new celebrity-filled rom-com called You People , and it has the internet talking! Netflix /Courtesy Everett Collection You People was directed by Kenya Barris — who brought you titles like Black-ish , Grown-ish , and Entergalactic — and was cowritten by the costar of the film, Jonah Hill. Gilbert Flores / Variety via Getty Images The movie takes a comedic look at interracial relationships and the cultural differences that are highlighted and sometimes ignored within them. At the center is the relationship between Jonah Hill and Lauren London . Parrish Lewis /© Netflix /Courtesy Everett Collection Everything seemed to be falling into place with them until they introduced each other to their families — Jonah with his Jewish family and Lauren with her Black Muslim family. Parrish Lewis /© Netflix /Courtesy Everett Collection David Duchovny, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Eddie Murphy, and Nia Long played their respective parents and helped add to the chaos. Parrish Lewis /© Netflix /Courtesy Everett Collection, Tyler Adams /© Netflix /Courtesy Everett Collection Viewers immediately took to Twitter to share their opinions, and they didn't hold back. From the language and colloquialisms used to the cast and outfit choices, here's what people had to say: 1.
Lauren London’s character schooling Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ character about tokenism & liberal racism is 🔥. #YouPeople

I loved Jonah Hill & Lauren London in “You People.” It was a beautiful film that tackled so many aspects - identity, culture, race, and yes relationships. 10/10 would recommend.

@IamKatHarris 06:08 PM - 27 Jan 2023 5.
I made it through maybe 15 minutes of You People before I turned it off and switched to Entergalactic. I’m very proud of this decision.

Black women in entertainment, especially music, are overly sexualize, it’s exhausting! I love that in #youpeople Jonah Hill's character had a genuine love for a Black women that was not in a fetishized overly sexual way - he genuinely loved her style, her hair, her fierceness!❤️ https://t.co/gQ1ae6wUhH

We need a part 2 of You People where Ezra and Amira have kids and Akbar and Shelley try to teach them Black and Jewish heritage. It can end with a Chrismahanukwanzakah celebration #youpeoplenetflix
@gennatay 04:41 PM - 28 Jan 2023 11.
Perfection is them playing Nipsey right after introducing Lauren’s character. #YouPeople
@loveTyAlexander 06:37 AM - 28 Jan 2023 12.
I was gonna tweet a whole in depth review of #YouPeople. But all I wanna say is I enjoyed it, it’s cute cozy and funny — and to remind y’all to sometimes enjoy art for what ever level it’s on, it’s allowed to be just that
@Ayem0 10:58 PM - 28 Jan 2023 13.
Nah, Eddie Murphy’s entrance/first scene in #YouPeopleNetflix is funny AF 😭😭Just old, Black, over it, and mad that people hair ain’t nappy no more. 😂😩 (+ the sweatshirt + James Brown = 🤌🏾✨)
@sincerely_iyana 10:00 PM - 29 Jan 2023 14.
I laughed A LOT watching #YouPeople Ultimately, that’s what I set out to do🤷🏾♂️ so job well done. Also, the casting dept deserves so much credit because the heavy hitters were insane! And Kenya should be acknowledged as director for pulling out some brilliant performances.
@kendalljamaal 06:02 PM - 28 Jan 2023 15.
ALSO the writing in #YouPeople was no cheesier than any other rom com in 2010. I actually missed this genre of films [about nothing] It’s okay to just laugh and watch characters fall in love in 6 months sometimes. Every movie doesn’t need to be rEalisTic PLS!!
@alexissTyler 04:35 AM - 29 Jan 2023 16.
Unpopular opinion: “You People” was mediocre and predictable. I love Love LOVE Lauren London but it’s a reason why that movie was straight to Netflix
@Ryshelledeante 01:13 PM - 30 Jan 2023 17.
Save yourself 2 hours, #YouPeople recycles tropes, reaches for laughs uses old stereotypes, and has the most unbelievable, 0 chemistry love story of all time. Though Eddie Murphy is a standout & Mike Epps was a welcomed surprise, even they couldn't save that film.
@AmeshiaCross 02:34 AM - 29 Jan 2023 18.
Um Lauren London got them playing Nip in “You People” and showing Slauson Av. That’s deeeeep love. 😭😭😭 Baby girl told us we gone see Nip every time she steps and she is sure keeping her word. TMC 🏁🏁
@Ibbzz_IA 04:40 AM - 28 Jan 2023 19.
I watched “you people” on Netflix and it clearly shows how parents from both parties can be a problem in a relationship but nobody ready for that conversation, also, the uncomfortable moments are real and some times just require a real conversation on both sides
@Turbayveronica 05:31 PM - 30 Jan 2023 20.
Julia Louis Dreyfus and Eddie Murphy = perfect comedic timing Lauren London and Jonah Hill surprisingly had really good chemistryAlso I got the vibe that Jonah Hill was just playing himself #YouPeople
@azizalake 03:42 PM - 28 Jan 2023 21.
#YouPeople is funny. Lauren London & Jonah Hill work really well together. I think this would be great as a limited series tv show. The parents backstory & the siblings too. I’m surprised I like it. Amazing cast!! Definitely should be a show on Netflix.
@cpettway79 03:12 AM - 29 Jan 2023 22.
Watching “You People” and I’ve never experienced this level of secondhand embarrassment before in my life 😂😂
@kNo_Mercy 02:40 PM - 28 Jan 2023 23.
I thought #YouPeople was a cute RomCom and my only issue with it is that they got the Muslim stuff all wrong. I don’t like that they put a lot of false information out like that because it can be confusing to the people who don’t know any better.
@chaun619 08:30 PM - 30 Jan 2023 24.
@Mr_Hoova Which was the 2005 version of this.
@JeffWilliamsiv 10:41 PM - 29 Jan 2023 25.
Leave it to Kenya Barris to fumble such a good cast... #YouPeople felt so lazy, so predictable, and I almost want to say so dated.
@harlantm 07:50 PM - 28 Jan 2023 26.
You People by Kenya Barris has taken up half the racial discourse quota for Q1 2023. They hammered on it so much in the film you could eek the story out.#YouPeople #kenyabarris.
@sszonke 06:32 PM - 30 Jan 2023 27.
At first I was confused by the Lauren London & Jonah Hill pairing. But they made a very cute pair in the movie. HOWEVER I wanted moreeeee of them being cute. I def would’ve watched just them being cute lil hypebeasts in love. A very LA couple. #YouPeople
