Storyline

Celeste and Jesse have been best friends forever. They dated in high school, got married, and now they're getting divorced. Their best friends don't think they can maintain their friendship throughout the dissolution of their marriage, but Celeste and Jesse don't think there will be a problem. But that's before Jesse gets into a relationship that Celeste doesn't think he can handle, and Celeste finds it harder to move on than she originally thought. Written by napierslogs

A Not-So Romantic Comedy
6 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watch this if....you want to watch a movie about relationships, but don't but expect an all out romantic comedy.

Acting/Casting: 5.5* - The cast, including the headliners (Jones & Samberg) screams romantic comedy. Unfortunately, I felt like the group was put into a semi-romantic comedy, which didn't do them any favors.

Directing/Cinematography/Technical: 5* - I will say that the movie has some slow moments and at times it lost my attention. The directing was OK, but I found myself waiting for the movie to end.

Plot/Characters: 5.5* - A separated couple that still has feelings for one another try to remain friends after some extraordinary circumstances complicate their dynamics. The premise is nothing new except for the spin it takes on a troubled couple. I was still a bit surprised at the seriousness of the film, especially since Rashida Jones co-wrote it.

Entertainment Value: 5* - As mentioned, it had slow moments and a few mildly humorous ones. It is not a movie I would go out of my way to see, but it wasn't horrible either.

My Score: 5.5+5+5.5+5 = 21/4 = 5.25
