Consensus: While it doesn't subvert the genre as incisively as it thinks it does, Celeste and Jesse Forever is a shrewd rom-com that benefits from its likable cast and trumpets the arrival of Rashida Jones as a bona fide big screen talent.

This potentially aggravating comedy remains sweet, smart and very enjoyable.

A different kind of romantic comedy: one that starts at the end and tries to make sense of itself.

Celeste and Jesse Forever is that much needed refreshing take on the modern romantic comedy that's become worn down by repeated tries and mediocre duplicates.

The give and take here feels completely real, and each character is likable while also flawed and vulnerable.

To its credit, "Celeste and Jesse Forever" wants to be more than a formulaic farce. It succeeds to the extent that the neighbors keep up with Jones.

There are very few romantic dramedies that grab my attention, even though I love that genre. There are just not that many great films that come from it. Again,… More

Not bad. Not one to watch over and over, but good for a one off watch.
Jason Robinson
Funny here and there, compelling story arc, but never quite settles into a groove. Rashida Jones was spectacular, though, so may be worth the watch.
