Firecracker 5K<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Elizabeth “Elle” Dean absolutely loves the Fourth of July.<br />

From the moment she wakes up, she buzzes with excitement<br />

at the prospect of time with family, sharing sparklers with her<br />

sister and neighborhood friends, and watching dazzling displays<br />

of fireworks as they light up the night sky.<br />

“The Fourth of July starts and ends with a bang for Elle,” said<br />

her mother, Kathryn with a laugh.<br />

To the 6-year-old girl who calls Grove City home, it is a day<br />

that holds so much potential and she already believes that July<br />

4, <strong>2020</strong> could prove to be the most memorable yet.<br />

Her anticipation for this date began with an announcement<br />

late last year: Unbeknownst to the Dean family, Kathryn’s sister,<br />

Dr. Elizabeth Hewitt, and her brother-in-law, Joel<br />

Wichtman, had spent the better part of 2019 establishing a foundation<br />

to be named in Elle’s honor. Not only would this foundation<br />

be used to fund research and treatment for Juvenile<br />

Myositis, a rare and complex autoimmune disorder that affects<br />

two to four children out of a million each year, but they had<br />

founded an annual 5K to be named after her most beloved holiday.<br />

“We could not believe what we were hearing,” said Kathryn.<br />

“I had no idea my sister and brother-in-law were doing this for<br />

us, and I had no idea that Elizabeth could be so sneaky.”<br />

“I was not being sneaky,” said Hewitt, a podiatrist at Foot and<br />

Ankle Physicians of Ohio. “I just didn’t tell her about it because<br />

I wanted it to be a surprise.”<br />

According to Hewitt, a variety of factors played a role in their<br />

decision to establish the Elizabeth Dean Foundation and the<br />

Firecracker 5K, and it wasn’t just because of the love they have<br />

for their niece.<br />

“We wanted to give something back to this community,” she<br />

said. “The people here have been so welcoming and supportive of<br />

Elle and this foundation and the race is our way of saying ‘thank<br />

you’ for all that they have done.”<br />

Having moved to the area more than a decade ago for her residency<br />

at Grant Medical Center, Hewitt would always encourage<br />

her sister to visit as she found it to be charming. At first, she<br />

would invite her to Ohio for the holidays, then to team up and<br />

run marathons like they did in high school and then eventually<br />

she started planting ideas of a permanent move in her head.<br />

Kathryn said she was not averse to the idea but did not feel it<br />

was the right time as she and her husband were starting to dis-<br />

Elizabeth “Elle” Dean, 6, is the inspiration behind the first<br />

annual Firecracker 5K, which will be held on July 4 at the<br />

Pinnacle Golf Club in Grove City. Registration is still under<br />

way for the event, which is presented by Foot and Ankle<br />

Physicians of Ohio. The proceeds will benefit the Elizabeth<br />

Dean Foundation supporting Juvenile Myositis and other<br />

Unknown Pediatric Pathology.<br />

More days for<br />

city’s DORA<br />

By Andrea Cordle<br />

<strong>Southwest</strong> Editor<br />

The Designated Outdoor Refreshment<br />

Area (DORA) in the Grove City Town<br />

Center had its annual renewal review. Not<br />

only did council recommend renewal, it<br />

approved an expansion.<br />

“The DORA allows folks to buy alcohol<br />

and then travel with it outside in a designated<br />

area,” said Stephen Smith, Grove<br />

City law director at the <strong>May</strong> 18 virtual<br />

council meeting.<br />

Last year, council approved a test run<br />

with the DORA that would need renewal in one year’s<br />

time.<br />

Councilman Aaron Schlabach said local business<br />

establishments have reported growth from the DORA,<br />

not just the ones participating in the program, but the<br />

other businesses as well.<br />

“They (business owners) have all expressed a desire<br />

to continue the DORA,” said Schlabach.<br />

The DORA allows patrons (age 21 and older) to purchase<br />

an alcoholic beverage from an approved, liquor<br />

permitted establishment, then leave said establishment<br />

to travel within the DORA boundaries.<br />

Originally the DORA ran from 2 p.m. to midnight<br />

Thursday, Friday and Saturday. With the program<br />

renewal, council also signed off on allowing the DORA<br />

to now operate from Monday through Saturday with<br />

the same hours as mentioned.<br />

“The DORA has been fantastic,” said Andy Furr,<br />

with the Heart of Grove City. “We have seen an uptick<br />

in feet on the street and it just continues to grow.”<br />

The Heart of Grove City is an organization with the<br />

goal to promote business in the Grove City Town<br />

Center. The Heart of Grove City proposed the DORA to<br />

increase visitors in the downtown area.<br />

“It has been a great resource to have in the toolbox,”<br />

said Furr.<br />

The DORA allows patrons to purchase a drink at an<br />

approved establishment and have the beverage poured<br />

into a specially marked cup. Only beverages in DORA<br />

cups are permitted and protected from the city’s open<br />

container laws. No cans, bottles, or alcoholic beverages<br />

purchased from outside establishments are permitted<br />

within the DORA. Businesses authorized to sell alcohol<br />

in the DORA include Grandstand Pizza, Grove City<br />

Brewing Co., Hop Yard 62, Local Cantina, Parker’s<br />

Tavern, Planks on Broadway, Plum Run Winery, and<br />

Zassy’s Taproom.<br />

When this program was initially approved by city<br />

council, some in the community were concerned about<br />

criminal or inappropriate behavior that can sometimes<br />

be associated with people being intoxicated.<br />

According to Furr, there was just one incident last<br />

year that the police had to handle.<br />

Grove City <strong>May</strong>or Richard “Ike” Stage said there<br />

may not be many police issues, but there are issues.<br />

Namely litter.<br />

The mayor said there has been half-filled beer cups<br />

left on the ground and even right by trash receptacles.<br />

“These are issues that should be spoken to,” said<br />

Stage. “This is an issue.”<br />

Stage said the business owners should be responsible<br />

to keep the area clean and safe.<br />

Furr told city leaders that he would address the litter<br />

issue with the permit holders.<br />

According to the law director, Ohio law requires a<br />

DORA review every five years. However, the city’s legislation<br />

states that the program would face a review<br />

each year.<br />

Stage said he prefers to stay with a one-year review<br />

considering the expansion of days allowed in the<br />

DORA.<br />

“We’ll see how it works out,” said Stage.<br />

According to city legislation, the DORA will not be<br />

in operation during events such as Boo Off Broadway,<br />

the Christmas Celebration and Homecoming.<br />

The Grove City DORA had been suspended with the<br />

shut down of non-essential businesses to stop the<br />

spread of COVID-19. Earlier this month, Governor<br />

Mike Dewine and Health Director Dr. Amy Acton gave<br />

the clearance for outdoor dining to reopen. As of <strong>May</strong><br />

15, the DORA has been permitted to reopen though<br />

establishments must follow state social distancing<br />

guidelines.<br />

cuss having children.<br />

In 2014, when Kathryn was pregnant<br />

with Elle and living in Illinois, she experienced<br />

a number of complications.<br />

“I had a very challenging pregnancy<br />

that was riddled with issues,” she said. “I<br />

had thought that something might be happening<br />

with Elle too but I didn’t really<br />

want to believe it at the time.”<br />

When Elle was born — premature and<br />

with an underdeveloped thyroid gland, a<br />

comprised immune system and partial<br />

facial paralysis — she spent the first four<br />

months of her new life in the neonatal<br />

intensive care unit fighting to survive.<br />

Later, when she developed ocular tumors<br />

and was given four months to live, she<br />

exceeded expectations to overcome those<br />

odds.<br />

When she was diagnosed with Juvenile<br />

Myositis, the rare and complex disorder<br />

that causes the body’s own immune system<br />

to attack healthy cells, tissues and muscles,<br />

she co-existed with all its complications<br />

and continued to flourish.<br />

Kathryn said it was important that Elle<br />

live as normal of a life as possible, and she<br />

felt that could be achieved when they<br />

moved to Grove City in 2016.<br />

“I knew from visiting my sister that this<br />

was a wonderful place and the people here<br />

have proven to be wonderful as well.”<br />

She said that while children in Elle’s<br />

school have inquired about her differences<br />

(her motor skills are delayed due to her illnesses<br />

but they are developing and she is<br />

always striving to perfect her burgeoning<br />

talents), they have embraced her and<br />

anointed her as a member of their family.<br />

Eventually, her classmates and new<br />

friends decided they wanted to know more<br />

about JM and how they could help. They<br />

turned to their parents who began to do<br />

their own research and created a neighborhood<br />

fundraising effort.<br />

According to the Myositis Association,<br />

there is currently no cure for the disease<br />

Dr. Elizabeth Hewitt (right) and her husband Joel Wichtman founded the Elizabeth<br />

Dean Foundation and the Firecracker 5K. Hewitt said she wanted to establish a fun<br />

event for her family and the community that promotes inclusivity and awareness for<br />

pediatric disorders. Here, Hewitt poses with her sister, Kathryn Dean, at the<br />

Thanksgiving Wattle in Grove City.<br />

but there are treatments that can successfully<br />

manage the symptoms. Kathryn said<br />

that, with more research and funding, Elle<br />

could be one of those children whose symptoms<br />

become manageable.<br />

“I don’t see why it couldn’t happen to<br />

her,” she said.<br />

All of the proceeds for the Firecracker<br />

5K, which is presented by the Foot and<br />

Ankle Physicians of Ohio, will go to fund<br />

research at the Cure JM Foundation and<br />

other organizations that seek treatments<br />

for unknown pediatric pathology.<br />

The race/walk will be held at the<br />

Pinnacle Golf Club, located at 1500<br />

Pinnacle Club Drive in Grove City; participation<br />

will be limited at 300. The race has<br />

been approved by both the city and Ohio<br />

Health.<br />

The event will start at 7:45 a.m. on July<br />

4 with a 100-meter Sparkler Sprint for kids<br />

aged 3 to 9. There is a $15 race fee and a<br />

$2.50 sign-up fee. Participants will earn a<br />

complimentary race day t-shirt, a finisher’s<br />

medal and finisher post-race refreshments.<br />

At 8 a.m., the Firecracker 5K will begin<br />

for racers and walkers and it will take<br />

them throughout the Pinnacle Golf Course<br />

and surrounding area. There is a $35 race<br />

fee and a $3 sign-up fee. Participants will<br />

also earn a complimentary race day t-shirt,<br />

finisher’s medal and finisher post-race<br />

refreshments.<br />

The deadline for registration for both<br />

events is 7:30 p.m. on July 3.<br />

After the race, participants will be invited<br />

to a brunch where mixologists at Cimi’s<br />

Bistro have crafted a “Firecracker Fizz” to<br />

top off the event. There will also be an Ohio<br />

Health and Wellness Expo on the premises.<br />

While July 4, <strong>2020</strong> holds the promise of<br />

another fun day, one person who will have<br />

to sit on the sidelines is Elle. Due to her<br />

compromised immune system, she will be<br />

unable to watch the race and cheer for the<br />

runners and walkers in person because of<br />

the global pandemic. But she will be there<br />

in spirit, and likely in some other fashion.<br />

“We are working on some special ideas<br />

with technology,” said Hewitt. “We know<br />

how much she wanted to be there and to be<br />

able to say “Go” to the racers so we are trying<br />

to come up with a way for her to safely<br />

have a role in it.”<br />

A graduation unlike any other<br />

Less than a month ago, the class of <strong>2020</strong> believed that the only graduation ceremony<br />

they would be able to participate in would be a virtual one due to crowd restrictions to<br />

slow the spread of a novel coronavirus. But thanks to the ingenuity of their fellow<br />

seniors, as well as the approval of the state boards of health and education, a drivethru<br />

ceremony was able to be held at the four high schools in the South-Western City<br />

District. On <strong>May</strong> 23, hundreds of graduating seniors were able to participate in a notquite-traditional<br />

ceremony where, once they were allowed to exit their vehicles, they<br />

were able to walk across the stage wearing their caps and gowns to collect their diploma<br />

covers and have their pictures taken. Though many said the event wasn’t what they<br />

have dreamed about since their freshman year, they were thankful to have this opportunity.<br />

Staff Writer<br />

Residential plans to purge homes and garages of<br />

unwanted materials hit a snag this year as dozens of<br />

scheduled cleanup events were cancelled in order to<br />

adhere to state guidelines to slow the spread of a novel<br />

coronavirus. Among those who made the decision to cancel<br />

their own was Jackson Township.<br />

According to officials, the spring and fall cleanup events<br />

attract hundreds of residents who are looking to safely<br />

unload old appliances, tires, scrap metal, electronic waste<br />

and other goods that no longer serve any household use.<br />

“We know that the cleanup is one of our most popular<br />

events and we did not make the decision to cancel it lightly,”<br />

said Township Administrator Shane Farnsworth. “But<br />

at the same time, knowing how many residents this event<br />

brings in, we knew we could not safely follow social distancing<br />

guidelines set forth by the state health department.”<br />

He said following the decision to cancel the cleanup<br />

event, they heard from many residents who expressed<br />

their understanding while noting their disappointment.<br />

In the days that followed the announced cancellation for<br />

the <strong>May</strong> 2 spring cleanup event, township officials “put<br />

their heads together” and came up with a plan to service<br />

the community.<br />

“We decided to hold staggered cleanup events throughout<br />

the summer,” said Farnsworth.<br />

Farnsworth explained that residents in the unincorporated<br />

parts of the township will be permitted to drop off<br />

unwanted materials at its administrative building, located<br />

at 3756 Hoover Road in Grove City, Monday through<br />

Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. (Holidays are excluded and<br />

the Fourth of July will be observed on July 3.)<br />

He said residents will be asked to sign in at the front<br />

office and then they will be directed to the receptacle area<br />

behind the building where they can dispose of their goods.<br />

The administrator noted that the area, which is gated,<br />

will be locked after hours and requested residents to not<br />

leave their items on the property.<br />

“No off hours dumping, please,” he said.<br />

Those who wish to dispose of tires during office<br />

hours can do so, but they are limiting the number<br />

of tires to four per vehicle.<br />

Electronic waste will also be permitted with the<br />

exception of TVs and monitors.<br />

“We will be accepting computer components and<br />

other e-waste components at this location,” he said.<br />

“They will then be recycled.”<br />

This service will run through Sept. 18.<br />

The township will also offer brush and yard<br />

waste clean up to its unincorporated residents<br />

throughout the summer. Residents are asked to<br />

place the brush or yard waste along the front of the<br />

property with the caveat that limbs are to be no<br />

longer than six inches and that there are no<br />

stumps. The collection days for this service are <strong>May</strong><br />

26-29; June 22-26; July 27-31; Aug. 24-28; and<br />

Sept. 21-25.<br />

Farnsworth also suggested that residents can<br />

drop off yard waste at the Columbus Com-Til facility,<br />

located at 7000 Jackson Pike (State Route 104).<br />

Unlike previous spring cleanup events, paper<br />

shredding services will not be available until the<br />

planned fall cleanup on Sept. 26. Farnsworth recommended<br />

that residents contact Ohio Mobile<br />

Shredding for shredding services.<br />

As with previous years, the township will not<br />

accept hazardous wastes such as chemicals, oils,<br />

<strong>May</strong> 31, <strong>2020</strong> -SOUTHWEST MESSENGER - PAGE 7<br />

paints or batteries. It will also not accept lightbulbs.<br />

Farnsworth said that if residents have any questions<br />

about what materials are accepted to contact the office at<br />

614-875-2742 or email the office at info@jacksontwp.org.<br />

“We will be happy to assist them or provide alternative<br />

sources if we cannot be of service,” said Farnsworth.<br />

Township trustees hope to receive COVID-19 aid package<br />

By Dedra Cordle<br />

Staff Writer<br />

The state is set to allocate thousands of<br />

dollars to Jackson Township in order to<br />

mitigate the financial impact of COVID-19.<br />

At the <strong>May</strong> 12 board of trustees meeting,<br />

Fiscal Officer Ron Grossman said the<br />

state will distribute $92,000 to the township<br />

should Senate Bill 310 pass the<br />

House.<br />

The allocation of state funds to municipalities<br />

and townships is a part of a greater<br />

federal aid package that was sent to Ohio<br />

through the passage of the Coronavirus<br />

Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.<br />

Under the bill, the funds can only be<br />

used on expenses related to the pandemic.<br />

Video Time Capsule<br />

Competition<br />

Vinton County National Bank is sponsoring<br />

a Video Time Capsule Competition<br />

for graduating <strong>2020</strong> seniors who live in<br />

Franklin, Fairfield, Hocking, Jackson,<br />

Licking, Pickaway, Ross and Vinton counties.<br />

The winning entry from each county<br />

will receive $2,020 cash.<br />

Entries should be no longer than two<br />

For example, it can be used to cover the<br />

cost of testing, the cost of disinfecting vehicles,<br />

the purchase of personal protective<br />

equipment and other emergency personnel<br />

expenses.<br />

Grossman said when, and if, the bill is<br />

passed, the township will set up a fund and<br />

transfer payments already made under the<br />

restricted usage.<br />

He said to date, the fire department has<br />

spent $27,000 to purchase personal protective<br />

equipment and disinfect their vehicles.<br />

Last month, the township also received<br />

$36,000 from the U.S. Department of<br />

Health and Human Services as a component<br />

of the CARES Act. Those dollars were<br />

to be used under the EMS fund.<br />

the township has roughly $9 million in<br />

cash, $8.2 million invested, $153,000 in<br />

EMS transportation and $481,000 in primary<br />

checking.<br />

He also mentioned that the township<br />

received the Homestead and Rollback Tax<br />

collection from the state.<br />

Trustee Dave Burris asked how much<br />

the township is spending in a pay period.<br />

“We are spending between $1.5 and $2<br />

million a month,” Grossman replied.<br />

Burris said with the amount the township<br />

is spending, he worried the positive<br />

cash balance of $9 million would not last<br />

long.<br />

In other township news, Fire Chief<br />

Randy Little said the number of transports<br />

of COVID-19 patients has gone down.<br />

around the southwest<br />

minutes and should answer the prompt “In<br />

20 years, what would you like your future<br />

self to remember about <strong>2020</strong>?”<br />

All graduating high school seniors who<br />

live in the listed counties are encouraged to<br />

submit a video by June 30. Entrants need<br />

not be bank customers and no purchase is<br />

necessary. Visit www.VCNBfamily.me and<br />

to hospitals.<br />

“That is down by 9 percent,” he said. “I<br />

choosier about why they call.”<br />

Public health concern cancels the Ohio State Fair<br />

The Ohio Expositions Commission<br />

announced it will cancel the <strong>2020</strong> Ohio<br />

State Fair, originally scheduled for July 29<br />

- Aug. 9 in Columbus.<br />

Members of the commission expressed<br />

concern for public health, as well as the<br />

financial feasibility of hosting a fair that<br />

would adhere to social distancing protocols<br />

and its impact on the long-term viability of<br />

the Ohio State Fair.<br />

“After careful thought and deliberation,<br />

we have decided to cancel the Ohio State<br />

Pet Corner<br />

Pets of the week<br />

Fair. Knowing how easily the virus spreads<br />

in large groups, we believe it is the safest<br />

path forward for the health and safety of<br />

all Ohioans,” said Andy Doehrel, chair of<br />

the Ohio Expositions Commission. “The<br />

financial ramifications of hosting a<br />

reduced-capacity fair would be too great<br />

and we need to protect the Ohio State Fair<br />

for future generations.”<br />

“Our first priority is the safety of the<br />

hundreds of thousands of people involved<br />

in the Ohio State Fair each year. While this<br />

Coronavirus scams on the rise<br />

The Internal Revenue Service urges taxpayers<br />

to be on the lookout for a surge of<br />

calls and email phishing attempts about<br />

the coronavirus, or COVID-19. These contacts<br />

can lead to tax-related fraud and<br />

identity theft.<br />

Taxpayers should watch not only for<br />

emails but text messages, websites and<br />

social media attempts that request money<br />

or personal information.<br />

Taxpayers should not provide their<br />

direct deposit or other banking information<br />

for others to input on their behalf into the<br />

secure portal.<br />

The IRS reminds taxpayers that scammers<br />

may ask you to do the following, do<br />

not act on these requests.<br />

Betty is a very sweet<br />

girl. She is a friendly<br />

black cat with a small<br />

patch of white on her<br />

chest. Betty can usually<br />

keep herself<br />

entertained but will<br />

demand attention<br />

when she craves it.<br />

She is eager to find<br />

her forever home and is up for adoption<br />

through Friends for Life Animal Haven.<br />

FYI: www.fflah.org<br />

Edison would be the<br />

perfect cat for you if<br />

you like to relax. He<br />

was found outside<br />

but now all he wants<br />

to do is chill out with<br />

someone who will pet<br />

him. He will purr for<br />

hours, expect, of<br />

course, when he<br />

wants to play. Edison<br />

loves feather and kicker toys. He was injured<br />

as an outdoor cat. As a result, his mouth may<br />

look a little funny and he is a messy eater, but<br />

his adorable smile is all worth it. This 2-yearold<br />

is up for adoption through Colony Cats<br />

and Dogs.<br />

FYI: www.colonycats.org<br />

• Emphasize the words “Stimulus<br />

Check” or “Stimulus Payment.” The official<br />

term is economic impact payment.<br />

• Ask the taxpayer to sign over their<br />

economic impact payment check to them.<br />

• Ask by phone, email, text or social<br />

media for verification of personal and/or<br />

banking information saying that the information<br />

is needed to receive or speed up<br />

their economic impact payment.<br />

• Suggest that they can get a tax refund<br />

or economic impact payment faster by<br />

working on the taxpayer’s behalf. This<br />

scam could be conducted by social media or<br />

even in person.<br />

Visit the Internal Revenue Service website<br />

at www.irs.gov for more information.<br />

for adoption at local<br />

rescues and shelters<br />

Deacon is an outgoing<br />

guy. He is very<br />

curious and likes to<br />

explore with his nose.<br />

Deacon likes attention<br />

from people and<br />

will come when he is<br />

called. He could benefit<br />

from basic obedience<br />

classes.<br />

Deacon also will<br />

need to be the only pet in the home. Adopt<br />

him from the Franklin County Dog Shelter.<br />

FYI: www.franklincountydogs.com<br />

Garland is a total<br />

sweetie. She is independent<br />

and freespirited<br />

but loves<br />

attention and lots of<br />

cuddles. Garland is<br />

available for both rescue<br />

and direct adoption<br />

due to ongoing<br />

anxiety within the<br />

shelter setting. She<br />

also has some joint discomfort, but no abnormalities<br />

seen on radiographs. She really is a<br />

cuddle-bug and will become your shadow in<br />

no time. Garland should be the only pet in the<br />

home, but she promises she’s worth it.<br />

FYI: www.franklincountydogs.com<br />

is a difficult decision, we feel it is necessary<br />

to protect the fairgoers, exhibitors, volunteers,<br />

vendors, partners, performers, concessionaires,<br />

youth leaders, employees and<br />

sponsors,” said Virgil Strickler, general<br />

manager of the Ohio Expo Center and<br />

State Fair. “I look forward to seeing my fellow<br />

Ohioans at the 2021 Ohio State Fair,<br />

when it is safer for us to enjoy our favorite<br />

traditions together.”<br />

In Entertainment<br />

www.columbusmessenger.com<br />

Performances make “e Lovebirds” funny and enjoyable<br />

There are an untold number of movies<br />

that have little to no premise.<br />

Traditionally, they are more often found in<br />

the science fiction or comedic realms but<br />

they can sometimes be discovered in ones<br />

that go on to garner critical acclaim and<br />

win countless industry awards.<br />

For the most part, these films can be forgiven<br />

for its missing, meandering or convoluted<br />

logic, but they have to have an off-setting<br />

factor that makes it watchable, if not<br />

downright enjoyable.<br />

“The Lovebirds” is one of these films. It<br />

has a thin plot that unravels and veers into<br />

slapstick territory but it also has two<br />

sparkling leads that make the film watchable,<br />

if not downright enjoyable.<br />

Just a few years prior to the film’s<br />

release, Kumail Nanjiani and Issa Rae<br />

were not on Hollywood’s radar as a leading<br />

man or lady. They would get bit parts here<br />

and there but no studio was really willing<br />

to give them a chance to break out in their<br />

own vehicle. Then they did what older<br />

actresses have to do in order to be seen:<br />

produce their own projects and cast themselves<br />

in the main role.<br />

For Rae, her mainstream breakout was<br />

in 2016 when the television show<br />

“Insecure” started to air on HBO. And as<br />

for Nanjiani, his came the following year<br />

with “The Big Sick,” a loose retelling of his<br />

relationship with his now wife who was<br />

gravely ill at the time.<br />

Since then, the two have been proving<br />

that they do have that factor that can draw<br />

in a crowd and “The Lovebirds” proves that<br />

point as it is currently the most watched<br />

streaming movie. The film itself, which is a<br />

romantic comedy/action adventure hybrid,<br />

is not that great but the improvisational<br />

skills and the nuanced facial expressions of<br />

this comedic duo propel even the dullest<br />

moments forward. If it were not for the<br />

presence of these two and their fun chemistry,<br />

“The Lovebirds” would not have been<br />

such an entertaining escape.<br />

In the film, Nanjiani and Rae portray<br />

Jibran and Leilani, a long-term couple who<br />

are privately mulling whether to go their<br />

separate ways. Like all couples, we see<br />

them at their first blush of love — the flirting,<br />

their laughter at the smallest quips,<br />

and their joking compliments — and then it<br />

flashes forward to the blush of utter annoyance.<br />

After four years together, they are arguing<br />

about the smallest things; the time it<br />

takes to get ready, social media usage,<br />

secretive work projects and whether or not<br />

they could win ‘The Amazing Race.’ The<br />

latter argument seems to be their breaking<br />

point and, as they are driving to attend the<br />

dinner party of a recently engaged friend,<br />

decide it is time to end their relationship.<br />

Before the sheer awkwardness and reality<br />

of the moment can fully sink in,<br />

Nanjiani accidentally hits a cyclist with his<br />

car. While checking on the slightly injured<br />

but otherwise alert biker, their vehicle is<br />

commandeered by a police officer who proceeds<br />

to chase the cyclist down and run him<br />

over.<br />

Believing that they will be the prime<br />

suspects in this crime — Leilani does not<br />

trust that the cops will buy their story as<br />

she is black and he is Pakistani with “a<br />

murderous beard and murderous brows” —<br />

they decide that they will have to solve this<br />

mystery themselves despite having no<br />

experience whatsoever.<br />

Following the clues laid out in the bicyclists’<br />

phone, the two uncover a dark plot<br />

that takes them through the underbelly of<br />

the wealthiest in New Orleans and puts<br />

them into scenes right out of Stanley<br />

Kubrick’s bizarre film “Eyes Wide Shut.”<br />

Now, with the cops and an entire secret<br />

society on their tails, the recently broken<br />

up couple have to try to put aside their<br />

petty arguments and simmering annoyances<br />

in order to save each other’s life.<br />

The script, written by Aaron Abrams<br />

The Reel Deal<br />

Dedra Cordle<br />

and Brendan Gall,<br />

is easily the weakest<br />

point of the<br />

movie as it struggles<br />

to advance and<br />

explain an already<br />

thin premise: Based<br />

on the plot alone, the viewer isn’t excepting<br />

much in the way of realism but it didn’t<br />

help that the writing team just completely<br />

drops any notion of following threads near<br />

the end.<br />

As stated above, what saves “The<br />

Lovebirds” from the script is Nanjiani and<br />

Rae, who improvise most of their lines and<br />

add subtle expressions of longing and<br />

loathing as they portray a couple on the<br />

brink. It is their chemistry, skill, talent<br />

and personalities that make this movie one<br />

to catch on Netflix despite its weak premise<br />

and follow through. Grade: B-<br />
