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

The main plot of the story of a small independent candy store going out of business because of a corporate chain candy store is ripped off of You've Got Mail (1998), which was a remake of The Shop Around the Corner (1940). See more »

Goofs

When Joel and Molly are seated in the big picture window of a coffee shop, gabbing, the sign for the subway stop across the street, although partially obscured, clearly says "__ Street Subway Station" (around the 31-minute mark). A minute later, the same sign says, "Upper W. Side Subway Station". (Of course neither sign really exists along the 2/3 line, which services my neighborhood.) See more »

A Parody of Romantic Comedies
2 July 2014 | by swellframe17See all my reviews

2 1/2 out of 4 stars.

David Wain's "They Came Together" is a parody of all romantic comedies. It's a film that knows what it is and plays off of it. It's a simple story of boy meets girl, boy and girl fight, boy and girl separate, and boy and girl get back together. If you've ever seen a romantic comedy, you know what this story is and what will happen. Thanks to a talented cast, though, this film works for the most part. Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler (who worked with Wain on "Wet Hot American Summer") have very good chemistry and the rest of the cast laughs along with them.

I went into this film skeptical about it and walked away laughing more than I thought I would. It's a silly movie that feels like a cult film. The humor can be very forced at times, but, for the most part, the jokes work. If you're looking for a good short laugh, you won't be wasting your money. There's a bunch of cameos and witty humor that will keep you engaged. This isn't a film that's trying to be great, and if you accept that, you'll have a fun time.
