Lee Toland Krieger's humorous romantic drama Celeste and Jesse Forever focuses on best friends who stay incredibly close even after they divorce. Celeste (Rashida Jones) is a type-A marketing whiz with a knack for trend spotting, and Jesse (Andy Samberg) is a struggling artist with an irresponsible streak. They've been BFFs since 10th grade, and even though their attempt at marriage together failed, they still spend every day together, enjoying their private jokes and making each other laugh, six months after their separation. He hopes for a reconciliation, she wants him to grow up. Their deep bond takes its first serious blow when Jesse finally does become involved with another woman - causing each of them to wonder how to be in each other's lives. Co-written by Jones and actor Will McCormack, the movie co-stars Ari Graynor, Eric Christian Olsen, and Emma Roberts. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
This was a funny, entertaining movie, but the plot was just so stupid, that I can't give it a positive review. I just couldn't get it out of my head that 2 people going through a divorce can be that close still.
I really enjoyed this. Does though show you, how the average woman goes for the losers in life, and then the other half has to go the complete opposite way by being a golddigger. Also shows you how women are so emotional and don't think with logic. The minute you sleep with one, they think they own you for life.
A fair and somewhat original Rom-Com made better by the performance of Rashida Jones. Certain things about the story you've seen before and everyone around Jones is nothing more than a supporting character including Andy Samberg. So because of her it's definitely worth watching.
This movie was pretty good, but it's not the laugh-out loud type of comedy one may be expecting with these 2 as the leads. Samberg is funny, but this is definitely Rashida's movie. Sweet and sentimental with some laughs mixed in. Good flick though.
This was sweet, but it definitely does not give you the happy Hollywood ending. Its all about realizations... that relationships take work, that you should appreciate your partner while they are your partner and that sometimes being right is wrong.
Very sweet but a little sad.
Very sad movie about a couple that is divorcing but still hanging out as good friends, much to the bewilderment of their pals. Something has to give eventually, and one of them meets someone and they both adjust to this new chapter in their lives. This movie made me cry. It was good beacuse it was real. Standout performance by Will McCormack, as the hilarious-without-trying, Skillz.
