Its bittersweet conclusion hits you square in the gut.

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

January 7, 2013
Rashida Jones' first lead feature role is a likeable enough effort to step out from the tube...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 9, 2012
[A] charming, lightweight comedy ...
December 7, 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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 7, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 7, 2012
With its refusal to follow the usual romantic-comedy formula, this snappy and observant movie is a nice surprise.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
December 6, 2012
Aside from the premise of two people who can't seem to separate, the storyline is nearly non-existent. All in all, rather annoying.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 6, 2012
Charming and not without its moments, but far too conventional to capture the complexity it strives for.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 6, 2012
There are some nice moments, but it's unbearably self-conscious and nowhere does it resemble real life.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 6, 2012
The leads are engaging enough but it's too inconsequential to make you care.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 6, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 6, 2012
That title doesn't lie: the romantic comedy Celeste & Jesse Forever really does feel like Celeste and Jesse, forever.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
December 6, 2012
Engaging, sharply observed and refreshingly cliché-averse relationship comedy-drama with a strong script and superb central performances ...
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 5, 2012
All the wry banter and gentle soul-searching in the world can't save the audience from drifting into apathy.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 5, 2012
A flawed but intriguing take on a well-worn genre.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 3, 2012
This is an enjoyable and breezy enough watch thanks to its appealing lead duo.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
December 3, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
December 2, 2012
It's not a bad set-up, but the film lets everyone talk a lot without ever having much to say.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
December 2, 2012
A low-fi indie that swiftly slums into terminal feyness.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
