    They Came Together is one joke repeated until you're broken down by the giggles. It shouldn't work as well as it does, and wouldn't if it weren't perfectly cast with America's Comedy Sweethearts.

    Occasionally very funny, and moderately funny the rest of the time. In mathematical terms that adds up to pretty funny or "funny enough."

    Most of the jokes land bluntly – ”This is a cliché!” – but tight pacing and a killer cast, which also includes Ed Helms and Christopher Meloni, make up for the inconsistent gags.

    Larky, witty and sometimes even wise, this spoof on every rom-com ever made is less a fully realized film than an extended skit, a series of set pieces that poke gentle and sometimes transgressively crude fun at the tropes of girl-meets-boy that have enchanted and addled audiences for generations.

    This rough-edged parody feels both distinctive and handmade, and for those reasons alone it’s a hard movie to hate, even when it temporarily loses its comic footing. Anyway, as romantic comedies down the ages have taught us, hatred is just a latent form of love.

    Poehler’s Parks and Rec co-star Adam Scott is there, playing a sound engineer and so is John Stamos from "Full House," because, you know, that’s funny. Until it’s tiresome.

    A ponderous spoof of movie rom-coms that plummets stupidity to a new low even by Hollywood standards.

    Madison, Wet Hot American Summer

    You have your next (cult) classic
    comedy. I haven't laughed this hard
    maybe ever. Will the film hold up on repeat viewings? I'm not sure. But
    this is just ingenious comedy writing. It's the wackiest film I've ever
    seen in my life.

    Every single scene is a satire of something in an actual romantic
    comedy. Yet, that would get old quick if the scenes didn't have INSANE
    jokes too. Luckily, the scenes do.

    This movie isn't going to be for everyone as I can see the rating is at
    like a 6.2/10. But if you like wacky humor and you liked the movies I
    listed above, I would give this movie a chance. Seek it out in theaters
    when it comes more widely available. It certainly is way better than
    the previews suggested and most of the other big budget summer films
    coming out this year.

    If you're sick of how the Scary Movie trend ended up ruining parody films forever and wished for a throwback to the days of Airplane, then this is the movie for you - rather than just throwing out endless pop culture references like the ____ Movie parodies do, this has a focus on one (You've Got Mail) while paying attention to genre as a whole as well. And like Airplane it's not afraid to throw out other bizarre non-sequiturs jokes as well. Just when you think it's settled down, it throws another punch out of the blue. This movie deserves to be a cult classic, but I wish it was better received so other movies would learn from it... instead we'll no doubt end up with another ______ Movie in the next six months instead.

    Such a bizarre movie, I'm really not sure how to rate it. Before watching this movie, you absolutely need to know that this is a parody of romantic comedies. If you're expecting a standard romantic comedy, you're going to be really confused. The movie extremely outwardly and blatantly makes fun of itself throughout. It's very bizarre, but if you know what to expect, it is very funny. I laughed out loud many times...and also yelled things like "what the hell?!?" at the TV several times because weird things kept happening that wouldn't in real life with real people. Characters break the fourth wall making it hard to believe that the characters are real people, so empathy is difficult, so this movie is mainly just for the laughs. It has a fantastic cast with more familiar faces than I could name. Throughout the whole thing, I kept thinking "This really reminds me a lot of Wet Hot American Summer." Afterwards, I looked it up, and yep, I was right, same writer and director....partially the same cast (with lots of other people we all know from assorted sitcoms showing up.) So, if you're a fan of Wet Hot American Summer, like quirky comedies, and like to laugh at the conventions of typical romantic comedies, then the movie is worth watching. Expand

    The two leads are very likeable. Having said that this is a bizarre bland ridiculous comedy which is a total rip off of the very old Meg Ryan comedy YOU GOT MAIL. The trailer is the whole movie. Everything else is just filler. Just a few mild chuckles nothing more. Very disappointing. Expand

    This movie sucks on a level I never thought was possible. I could go on about the paper thin characters, the phoned in acting, and the terrible presentation but at the end of the day that’s not the key thing to talk about when reviewing a comedy. This movie was not funny. 99% of the humor in this film failed it was ever a joke that feel flat or was just plain stupid and none of it was memorable. For as dumb as something like Movie 43 was at least some of the **** in that movie was memorable and I still remember it. At least it made me laugh. This movie is trying to be a parody of cheesy romance movies but while it is overly cheesy none of it leads to great comedy or satire of the genre and the cheesiness hurts the movie more than it helps it resulting in a movie that is even worse than the films it is trying to satirize. But the biggest sin this movie has made is its lack of lasting appeal. This movie is bland and forgettable with nothing memorable about it. For all the bad movies (specifically comedies like Movie 43) I’ve seen some of them were memorable and even if its for the wrong reasons I still remember them and their **** This movie on the other hand has none of that. I saw it once, I’ll never see it again, come tomorrow I won’t remember it and come a week and I’ll forget about it. And if there’s one thing you don’t want people to do is forget about your movie. I’m not going to recommend this film to anybody. I mean I’m not into romantic comedies but this isn’t me hating on a genre I don’t like this is me hating on a bad movie. So do yourself a favor and don’t waste your time with this movie. This is a bad movie that deserves to be ignored and forgotten. Expand

    Really bad; and we pretty much like everything to some degree. Toilet humor; literally. Adolescents may be slightly amused. Comedy has reached an all-time low. Expand
