Andy Samberg’s “Palm Springs” just sold for a record-breaking $17.5 million (and 69 cents) at the Sundance Film Festival — and looking back, the actor says he was drawn to the film because it was “a little more f—– up” than traditional rom-coms.

“I liked it — it’s very rare,” Samberg told TheWrap’s Beatrice Verhoeven at the festival. “There are a lot of scripts written and not a lot that I personally like when I read them. [There are] many that I don’t enjoy and then like the movie when I see it later. This one was just super fun and funny and different, it felt like a way to do something that could be considered a rom-com but not in the traditional way. It was… a little more f—– up.”
