Critic Reviews for The Story of Us
Mostly the movie is like the marriage: good casting, golden promise, yet somehow a grating ordeal. The Story of Us means to describe pain; instead, it inflicts it.
Folks, I really feel that seeing this one for you is the movie critic's equivalent of jumping on the grenade to save your lives. Send me medals.
One of the year's most excruciating, shallow films.
By the end, you feel drained and disaffected, as if you, too, had been living with the Jordans for fifteen years.
The film lacks focus, sharpness.April 7, 2020 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
The movie turns into bogus drivel courtesy of the sitcom monster.
Audience Reviews for The Story of Us
Jun 11, 2014A bit slow-moving, but it was unique. There are movies with similar plots, but none done quite like this one. It was very believable and real.Erin C Super Reviewer
Oct 03, 2010Ben and Katie Jordon (Bruce Willis and Michelle Pfeiffer) are a couple who after 15 years of being married to each other, are trying to figure out what has gone wrong in his marriage. They want to separate, but decide to stick around for the sake of their children. While their kids are away at summer camp, they reflect over how they met each other in flashback and present day and the good and bad times they had. Close friends of the couple (Rita Wilson, Rob Reiner) chime in with their observations. When all is said and done, will the couple uncover any reasons to stay together?Deb S Super Reviewer
