Romantic comedies aren’t just wildly popular, they’re also big earners at the box office.

These slice of life stories make us laugh, cry, judge and…spend. Some even become classics, giving us killer one-liners to share during opportune moments in our real lives. That’s likely why Saturday Night Live alum Sasheer Zamata was happy to try her funny in the lead role of Stella Meghie’s new flick, The Weekend, a love story about a young comedian who takes an unconventional trip with her ex and the inappropriate activity that ensues. Sasheer, who plays Zadie, is joined by a cast of favorite faces including DeWanda Wise (She’s Gotta Have It), Tone Bell (Disjointed) and Y’Lan Noel (Insecure).

Check out what the big screen star says about why she was ready to try something new.

The Weekend is out now on iTunes, Amazon and OnDemand.
