Consensus: They Came Together is surprisingly messy and perhaps too smart for its own good, but Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd's chemistry is enough to overcome many of the movie's flaws.

Rom-com tropes like the ''meet-cute'' are so tired that you can't just spoof them -- you have to spoof the spoofs, which this winking David Wain-Michael Showalter parody mostly succeeds at doing.

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.

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.

Globe and Mail

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.

Sebastian Zavala Kahn

A clever and zany parody of romantic comedies.

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.

I never stopped smirking as I watched the movie. But I would have traded all of it for half-a-dozen genuine smiles.

Not every gag completely works, but there's enough genuinely funny writing here to keep audiences laughing throughout the movie's 83 entertaining minutes.

I did go into this expecting a standard rom com, so I was surprised to find it's actually kind of a spoof movie. It's really silly, but once you get… More

The film is zany and hilarious. The film is done in the same style as the Zucker Bros. (Airplane, Naked Gun), Mel Brooks, Jim Abrams (Hot Shots) type of films.… More

As a romantic comedy, this is one of the worst films I have ever seen, but what it actually is, is a clever spoof on every single cliche in the book and it… More
