The Patriot Ledger

Its bittersweet conclusion hits you square in the gut.

Eric D. Snider

Thematic murkiness aside, the film achieves a mostly successful mix of mainstream and indie sensibilities.

Aaron Yap

Rashida Jones' first lead feature role is a likeable enough effort to step out from the tube...

Observer [UK]

[A] charming, lightweight comedy ...

December 9, 2012

The film bears a kinship with the underrated 2006 film The Break-Up; both are, for lack of a better term, post-romantic comedies by exploring the largely virgin territory of what happens long after the meet-cute, when life takes hold and love goes sour.

Irish Times

The film shows its toothless nature when it refuses to properly eviscerate Emma Roberts's silly tweenie pop star. But there are worse crimes than being just a little bit too nice.

Rich Cline

With its refusal to follow the usual romantic-comedy formula, this snappy and observant movie is a nice surprise.

Aside from the premise of two people who can't seem to separate, the storyline is nearly non-existent. All in all, rather annoying.

Little White Lies

Charming and not without its moments, but far too conventional to capture the complexity it strives for.

Peter Bradshaw

There are some nice moments, but it's unbearably self-conscious and nowhere does it resemble real life.

Daily Express

The leads are engaging enough but it's too inconsequential to make you care.

Nigel Andrews
Financial Times

There is quiet, seditious verve to the way expectations are derailed and then re-railed, just as in those areas of real life that still exist even outside the expanding Sundance empire of middlebrow observationalism.

Robbie Collin
Daily Telegraph

That title doesn't lie: the romantic comedy Celeste & Jesse Forever really does feel like Celeste and Jesse, forever.

Matthew Turner

Engaging, sharply observed and refreshingly cliché-averse relationship comedy-drama with a strong script and superb central performances ...

Sky Movies

All the wry banter and gentle soul-searching in the world can't save the audience from drifting into apathy.

The List

A flawed but intriguing take on a well-worn genre.

This is an enjoyable and breezy enough watch thanks to its appealing lead duo.

Daily Star

There are some funny moments and some sharp lines but it's the chemistry between the two likeable leads that makes this so undeniably sweet.

Siobhan Synnot

It's not a bad set-up, but the film lets everyone talk a lot without ever having much to say.

Empire Magazine

A low-fi indie that swiftly slums into terminal feyness.
