What to know
While it doesn't subvert the genre as incisively as it thinks it does, Celeste and Jesse Forever is a shrewd rom-com that benefits from its likable cast and trumpets the arrival of Rashida Jones as a bona fide big screen talent. Read critic reviews

May 17, 2014Not bad. Not one to watch over and over, but good for a one off watch.Nicki M Super Reviewer
May 01, 2014Celeste(Rashida Jones, who also co-wrote the script with Will McCormack who plays a pot dealer) and Jesse(Andy Samberg) are the best of friends and hang out all the time. The fact that they are in the midst of a divorce makes this fact disturbing to their friends Beth(Ari Graynor) and Tucker(Eric Christian Olsen). What would be even more disturbing to Celeste is if she knew of Jesse's one night stand with Veronica(Rebecca Dayan) when they were still together. Surprisingly with its sit-com plot and comic actors in the lead, "Celeste and Jesse Forever" is glum and dour without being emotionally resonant in any meaningful way. While Andy Samberg's eyebrows betray him whenever he tries to be serious, Elijah Wood hits just the right note of bemusement. And then there is the large matter of a script that might have just worked after maybe another 50-60 drafts. So, maybe I should not complain that I still have no idea what exactly Celeste does for a living, especially considering I like the title of her book.
Jun 21, 2013Started off beautifully, this endearing romantic comedy has enough funny moments as well as moments of truth to make it an enjoyable film to watch, which is defined by the realistic performance of Rashida Jones.
Jun 03, 2013I've so much to say about "Celeste and Jesse Forever" yet there's nothing I can really put into words. Watch it.
