The Obamas' 22-year-old daughter Malia Obama and the former president both prefer "dark and sad" movies, according to the ex-executive mansion resident.


"You know, it seems like they take themselves a little seriously with their movies, and they like to rehash dark moments," Obama quipped.

"But Sasha and I," she said of the couple's 19-year-old daughter, "we want a little laughter and some frivolity."

Malia Obama, who has reportedly worked in film production studios, is the "movie savant" of the family, her mom said.

"She's very clear," Obama, who appeared on the late-night show to promote her Netflix series, "Waffles and Mochi," and her work with the Partnership for a Healthier America, told Colbert.
