Allison Janney and Mila Kunis face in one of the funniest movies of 2021, Tate Taylor’s Breaking News in Yuba County. When Sue Buttons (Janney) ‘s husband goes missing, she becomes a breaking news sensation overnight, and TV reporter sister Nancy (Kunis) is eager to be the one to solve the case. Sadly, Sue knows exactly where her husband is – she buried him after he died of a heart attack after discovering he was cheating on her. Sounds like a breakneck series of events with no easy conclusion? Happy, that’s where Allison Janney thrives – here’s how to watch the fast-paced dramedy this weekend.

While Breaking news in Yuba County isn’t on one of the major streaming platforms, you can still go this woman-led film the (sort of) old-fashioned way: buy it online from FandangoNow, Google Play, Vudu, or Redbox for $ 14.99.
Yuba County also features Regina Hall as the detective assigned to the case of Sue Buttons and a hilarious comedy ensemble of Awkwafina, Samira Wiley, Bridget Everett and Jimmi Simpson. One thing you’ll notice about this movie right away: they’ve all but lost the men who might be slowing them down, making Janney and Kunis shine through as protagonists whose stories – wonderfully – have nothing to do with propelling anyone else’s storyline forward. But hey isn’t always Allison Janney’s guarantee
