    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.

    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.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. They Came Together is a delightfully smart romantic comedy filled with absurdity and incredibly dry humour. The story is unsure whether it is a parody or pastiche film, and at some times it is a bit messy. Just remember that this film is meant to be a parody of films like You've Got Mail, nothing more. The supporting cast is not used to their potential, particularly Bill Hader and Ellie Kemper, but the chemistry of Paul Rudd and Amy Poelher bring this cliched film literally to higher levels of entertainment. Definitely a very intelligent and enjoyable comedy. Expand

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
