Lightheartedly conveys that the sources of marital love can be renewed even after a period of spiritual dryness.

There is no need to run right out. See a Matinee.

Though it sets out to explain why this marriage is worth saving, The Story of Us could prompt even single members of the audience to file for divorce.

The Story of Us is flawed, but not seriously enough to curtail its ability to function as unpretentious entertainment.

Other people's problems can usually get to you after an hour and 45 minutes. But in Rob Reiner's heartstring-plinking comedy The Story of Us, you just might lose interest during the first 10.

The movie feels shaved down from some larger conception.

I liked how Rob Reiner balanced brisk montages of the couple's 15-year-plus history with pauses at the significant moments that marked their marriage's dissolution.

Further proof that Rob Reiner has completely lost it.

When Harry Met Sally with a bad script.

Could be described as a sequel to "When Harry met Sally," you know, like fifteen years later and with a heavier drama to comedy ratio.

A picture torn between the desire to make you laugh and make you cry -- which winds up doing neither particularly well.

The Story of Us offers a muddled variation of Scenes from a Marriage.

The entire film is a haphazard scrapbook of highs and lows.

You almost want this couple to divorce.

The Story of Us definitely isn't in the league of When Harry Met Sally.
Christopher Null

Aside from a few chuckles, this film is completely without merit. It's mean-spirited and just plain offensive.
