Storyline

In New York City, couple Joel and Molly are having dinner with their couple friends, Kyle and Karen. In the general discussion of their respective relationships and how they met, Joel and Molly, in telling their story, say that it is exactly like a corny romantic comedy. The story they end up telling not only has every romantic comedy cliché thrown in, but it is told in the style of a romantic comedy, complete with crazy characters who should be smarter to figure out a smoother path to a happy ending for Joel and Molly. But that one romantic comedy element that is the big payoff may not be reality, or perhaps it is. Written by Huggo

Trivia

Near the beginning of the movie, when Kyle (Bill Hader) says how much Molly (Amy Poehler) and Joel's (Paul Rudd's) love story is like a rom-com, Molly responds by saying that it isn't a movie, it is their real-life, and looks right at the camera, just before the scene ends. See more »

Joel: I have a dream, that someday I want to have my own coffee place, A Cup of Joel, you know, as like in cup of joe, but I would say Joel...
Molly: Right.
Joel: ...because everyone knows cup of joe, cup of Joel because my name's Joel.
Molly: Smart.
Joel: So Joel instead of joe.
Molly: I get it.
Joel: Ahh, I don't know, it's probably just wishful thinking, right, it's kind of stupid.
Molly: No, it's not stupid, it's great, you should do that.
Joel: Tiffany always said that it was a dumb idea.
Molly: I don't know Tiffany, but she sounds like a stupid bitch.

Effective Sleep Aid
28 June 2014 | by sherilcoxSee all my reviews

I've been a huge Paul Rudd fan since forever, and I have admired Amy Pohler since her early SNL days....she is as brilliant a sketch comic as Rudd is a cute and accessible mensch. Too bad their talents were totally wasted in "They Came Together." The creative team who collaborated on this film's production have either no respect for the standard rom-com, or way too much respect for trash like Tosh.O. If one is going to parody a specific genre, then one has to understand the recurring tropes and clichés. "They Came Together" is so contemptuous of it's source material that the film just seems obnoxious. Beavis and Butthead might have done a better job than writer-director David Wain.
