Relationships are complicated and I feel like this movie was a quite honest portrayal. I have even experienced some of the fights or situations in this movie, so I felt like I could relate. But seriously, Celeste and Jesse are so annoying together, I was quite happy that they were over. No rooting for them to get back together. Sometimes you just have to move on from a dysfunctional relationship.
Andy Samberg y Rashida Jones interpretan a una pareja que decide divorciarse después de 6 años de matrimonio y que no está preparada para dejar ir, en esta comedia romántica que a diferencia del "chick flick" tradicional, busca dejar atrás los clichés y la ligereza por intentar entender a la pareja y por unas situaciones que debajo de la gracia esconden heridas. "Jesse And Celeste Forever" no será un clásico de la comedia romántica, pero sí está por encima del producto habitual de Hollywood.
When I first saw the title of this movie I thought it would be a spoof of the Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Before Midnight movies. I was wrong. The movie charmed me with the chemistry between its two leads. There's a plot twist early on which takes the movie into an interesting direction. It does though lose steam as we get in deeper and some scenes could've used editing. Still an enjoyable watch.
I don't understand the cinematography behind this one. Why have really well-crafted wide angle shots and then deliberately shaking profile shots? That aside, the clever soundtrack melds well with this pretty unique (yet strangely familiar) story.
I would have thought this movie would have been funnier especially with Andy Samberg. Rashida Jones cowrote this slight romantic sad flick with a few funny scenes. No happy ending here. It was an okay movie, nothing memorable.
I love "500 Days of Summer"..."The F Word"... "When Harry Met Sally". But "Celeste and Jesse Forever" is by far NOT a comedy. I didn't laugh once and I was bored to tears. SUCH AN AWFUL SCRIPT. If there were jokes, I missed them. The characters were unlikable. It was full of old tropes & stereotypes. There was no depth at all to this movie. I'm seriously shocked that some reviewers said they got emotional over this... I just wanted it to end.
Romantic comedy who steal (tribute) jokes from baseball movies made over twenty years ago really don't get me on the right foot. Never bought Samberg, but the supporting cast is outstanding, but not utilized. Soundtrack may be the best thing about this movie. Worth seeing on a rainy day when it comes on HBO but beware you may be frustrated.
