Where I Watched It: Netflix Audio Description provided by: International Digital Center Written By: Liz gutman Narrated By: Sri Gordon I know most critics just hop in and do their thing, but I’m not them.

The Bubble

Starring: Karen Gillan, Fred Armisen, Keegan Michael Key, Iris Apatow, Pedro Pascal, Kate McKinnon, David Duchovny, and Leslie Mann. Directed By: Judd Apatow Where I Watched It: Netflix English Audio Description Available?: Yes The Plot: Set during the pandemic, a film crew and the actors involved try and complete the filming on the 6th film in a ridiculous franchise, and satire ensues.
