Doesn't seem to know how to be the film it so desperately wants to be.

Celeste and Jesse Forever is punching below its weight, covering the same territory of examining modern relationships as 2011's Friends with Benefits.

Aside from the premise of two people who can't seem to separate, the storyline is nearly non-existent. All in all, rather annoying.
December 6, 2012
Charming and not without its moments, but far too conventional to capture the complexity it strives for.
December 6, 2012
There are some nice moments, but it's unbearably self-conscious and nowhere does it resemble real life.
December 6, 2012
The leads are engaging enough but it's too inconsequential to make you care.

That title doesn't lie: the romantic comedy Celeste & Jesse Forever really does feel like Celeste and Jesse, forever.
December 5, 2012
All the wry banter and gentle soul-searching in the world can't save the audience from drifting into apathy.

It's not a bad set-up, but the film lets everyone talk a lot without ever having much to say.
December 2, 2012
A low-fi indie that swiftly slums into terminal feyness.

Finally, there's something a little sketchy about the movie, a little unfinished and scattergun. The figure of Jesse recedes in importance, and it's Celeste whose delusions we focus on.

Celeste and Jesse Forever is not an affront to cinema or anything of the sort but it is mediocre from beginning to end.
September 14, 2012
A rote rom-com in disguise.

The handheld 'indie' camerawork, the crane shot outside a wedding tent that lifts into the night sky as kids with sparklers run by in slow motion -- such dress-up fails to elevate a script that would be better served by a less pretentious presentation.
August 30, 2012
The movie is sometimes quite funny and sometimes quite affecting, but almost never at the same time, and those pieces don't fit together as well as they should.
August 24, 2012
Building a relationship around the shared love of a masturbatory joke involving a bottle of Blistex is undoubtedly as sturdy a foundation as any twosome has ever known.
August 24, 2012
Skates by on being simply R-rated "adorable.
August 23, 2012
Well-intentioned but underdeveloped and self-satisfied, it feels at times like the ultimate movie for the millennial generation, or at least its stereotype.
August 23, 2012
Tries to blend chick flick staples with bro humor but never quite gets the mix right.
