Where was the Netflix film You People filmed? We discuss the popular streaming film and its potential filming locations.
You People was released on January 20, 2023, on Netflix. The comedy follows an interracial couple that faces some challenges as they take the next step in their relationship by introducing each other to their families. The massive difference in cultural differences to social issues leads to them questioning whether or not their relationship will work. The film was written by Kenya Barris and Jonah Hill and stars Hill, Eddie Murphy, Lauren London, and Nia Long. Below we highlight all the details of where You People was filmed.
I liked You People quite a bit more than my fellow writer at Ready Steady Cut, Adam Lock, and the rest of the world (42%/39% on Rotten Tomatoes). I thought it was a creative look at how relationships with different backgrounds face so many different issues that make you question whether or not you are with the right person. It had some well-timed comedy, heartfelt moments, and some fantastic banter with our leads.
