(Rashida) Jones and (Andy) Samberg give personable performances. Jones has more screen time in which to display her acting range. And she is not afraid to show her character's flaws; at times you don't like her attitude or behavior.
Celeste & Jesse Forever is far funnier than you'd expect a film about a tortuous split to be -- and more deft and melancholy than any other comedy I can recall that co-stars a six-foot bong and a tub of Cheese Balls.
Too exaggerated and fussy to register as meaningful, while laboring through two shallow performances by Jones and Samberg, who come across as more of a dysfunctional improvisation duo than a plausibly aching couple.
