Andy Samberg’s “Palm Springs” 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.”

Actress Camila Mendes (“Riverdale”) called the film “titillating” and “surreal,” to which screenwriter Andy Siara added that it’s “a warm blanket.”

“Palm Springs” begins streaming on Hulu on July 10.
