'You People' Teaser Shows Awkward Lunch With Jonah Hill, Eddie Murphy And Nia Long

The Netflix comedy by Kenya Barris shows Murphy grilling Hill about race and relationships in a cringe-making exchange.

A teaser for a new Netflix comedy by Kenya Barris titled “You People” was released on Monday.

The clip features some of the movie’s star-studded cast, such as Jonah Hill, Eddie Murphy and Nia Long. Hill’s character is seen desperately trying to impress Murphy and Long, who plays the parents of his girlfriend (Lauren London), whom he wants to marry.

The three engage in a cringe-y conversation about race, culture and relationships, with Murphy grilling Hill at one point, saying:

“So, do you hang out in the hood all the time, or do you just come up here for our food and women?”
