About the Movie
Celeste (Rashida Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samberg) are high school sweethearts who married young and are now at a crossroads at the age of thirty. While Celeste is a success in business, Jesse is unemployed and adrift. Celeste thinks that if they divorce now they could still remain friends. Jesse passively accepts the decision even though he is still in love with her. As reality sets in, Celeste slowly and painfully realizes she has been cavalier about their relationship, but her timing with Jesse is less than fortuitous.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The give and take here feels completely real, and each character is likable while also flawed and vulnerable.
Fresh: The film bears a kinship with the underrated 2006 film The Break-Up; both are, for lack of a better term, post-romantic comedies by exploring the largely virgin territory of what happens long after the meet-cute, when life takes hold and love goes sour.
Rotten: Charming and not without its moments, but far too conventional to capture the complexity it strives for.
Fresh: There is quiet, seditious verve to the way expectations are derailed and then re-railed, just as in those areas of real life that still exist even outside the expanding Sundance empire of middlebrow observationalism.
This movie was really good, but honestly one of the saddest movies, I have ever seen. I literally lay in bed and cried for 30 minutes after.
Wish they would've end up together
