The complete trailer for You People, a Kenya Barris comedy that features Jonah Hill and was co-written by him, has been released on Netflix. Amira Mohammed, played by Lauren London, and Ezra Cohen, played by Jonah Hill, are both trying to find love in Los Angeles in the three-minute trailer for Barris’ feature film debut. Ezra confesses to his buddy (played by Sam Jay) in the trailer that he is desperate to find friendship because he feels “alone, on a building, hanging my legs off wondering what it’s like to feel companionship.”
Here’s the trailer of the movie:
Enter Amira, who after Ezra mistakes her for his Uber driver during an airport ridesharing mix-up, prompts Hill’s character to say that he has “never felt so understood by someone in my whole life.” Ezra chooses to propose since he thinks Amira is the one and only, but he does so before they have met one other’s parents. Can you genuinely say that seeing my Black ass in the photo has made your family happy? After Ezra acknowledges her parents “detest” him, Amira inquires.
The unpleasant cultural incompatibilities that an interfaith couple experiences during their marital journey are then amplified in the trailer. Through a series of interactions between Ezra and Amira’s parents and Amira and Ezra’s parents. Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who portrays Ezra’s mother, is overheard stating, “I suppose the cops —” as Hill becomes agitated. David Duchovny, who plays Ezra’s father, responds, “I like your braids.” Xzibit sported braids.
