When Joel (Paul Rudd) and Molly (Amy Poehler) meet, it's hate at first sight: his big Corporate Candy Company threatens to shut down her quirky indie candy shop. Plus, Joel is hung up on his sexy ex (Cobie Smulders). But amazingly, they fall in love, until they break up about two thirds of the way through, and Molly starts dating her accountant (Ed Helms). But then right at the end...well you'll just have to see. (Hint: Joel makes a big speech and they get back together.) From the director of Wet Hot American Summer, Wanderlust and Role Models comes a hilarious and irreverent… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Wain's film is both a takedown and a tribute: As with his summer-camp-movie spoof Wet Hot American Summer, you walk away with a renewed love for the genre."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"At times laugh out loud-inducing, but ultimately feels more like a promising Saturday Night Live skit (the romcom couple?) than a standalone piece of entertainment."
‑ Courtney Shea, Globe and Mail
"The approach is sketchy instead of edgy, giving the impression that the film is indulging in the very cliches it's trying to mock."
‑ Todd Jorgenson,
"Predictable romcom send-up has racy sex scenes, language."
‑ S. Jhoanna Robledo, Common Sense Media
"They Came Together is smart and incisive satire of the scorched-earth variety."
‑ Mark Dujsik, Mark Reviews Movies
"The problem with They Came Together is that what it settles on as the parody-able thing about romantic comedy is how generic it can feel."
‑ Linda Holmes, NPR
"I never stopped smirking as I watched the movie. But I would have traded all of it for half-a-dozen genuine smiles."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"A gleefully larger-than-life spoof of romantic comedies..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Really nothing more than Friedberg/Seltzer movie with A-Listers."
‑ Stephen Silver, EntertainmentTell
"It's not as raunchy as the title suggests, but Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler pull off a hilarious sendup of every rom-com cliché with only a few (easily forgivable) missteps. I laughed a lot."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Simply recreating what we know to be hackneyed and safe doesn't suddenly make it hilarious and surprising. There has to be a spin to it; there has to be some innovation."
‑ Christy Lemire,
"A series of hit-and-miss sketch-comedy bits rather than a fully realized movie that might have gutted contemporary rom-com clichés rather than just weakly aping them."
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"We'll have what they're having."
‑ Mara Reinstein, Us Weekly
"You'll laugh yourself silly"
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Film Racket
"Who knew that a spoof of romantic comedies could be so hilarious, and entertaining?"
‑ Jeanne Kaplan, Kaplan vs. Kaplan
