    This movie will not find an audience. It's got likable stars, a reliable commercial genre and a decent supporting cast, but nobody will turn out to see it, even if it was a labor of love.

    You don't believe Celeste for a minute when she tells a new guy that she needs to be alone for awhile. You know he's coming back in short order to provide the happy ending. Here's hoping she doesn't want him to get a job, too.

    So why are they divorcing, you ask. Who knows? Certainly not the creators of the very confused Celeste and Jesse Forever.

    A great rom com with great dialogue and enough funniness to get through the sad moments.

Andy Samberg & Rashida Jones work brilliantly together as two best friends who love each other but can't make it work. One of my personal favourite movies. Full Review »

    Celeste & Jesse Forever was a surprisingly original romantic comedy that seems to me more common these days after movies like (500) Days ofCeleste & Jesse Forever was a surprisingly original romantic comedy that seems to me more common these days after movies like (500) Days of Summer and The Spectacular Now. The cast in excellent in this movie and I really did care about the two main characters played by Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg. The film is surprisingly emotional at points but can also be quite light hearted and funny as well. Rashida Jones is so great in this movie. I have loved her since Parks & Rec and I thought she was just so easy to latch on to and so easy to love that you just have to keep your eyes on her for the whole run time. This movie would be great for date night. Full Review »
