(Rashida) Jones and (Andy) Samberg give personable performances. Jones has more screen time in which to display her acting range. And she is not afraid to show her character's flaws; at times you don't like her attitude or behavior. Celeste & Jesse Forever is far funnier than you'd expect a film about a tortuous split to be -- and more deft and melancholy than any other comedy I can recall that co-stars a six-foot bong and a tub of Cheese Balls. The compulsive self-blame that follows a breakup feel drawn from life, and lend the movie gravity. A must see if you can find it in your area.
Pros great actors

What a lovely, wonderfully funny film! The chemistry between the ensemble was fantastic, each shot was beautiful, there were a million hilarious surprises. When this film is released on DVD, I will be there to buy it the day it comes out. (I don't believe this film included many, if any, special effects; hence the average rating.)
Pros well paced, great story, great actors, hilarious!
A married couple decide to get a divorce and suddenly stop fighting and start hanging out with each other like best friends. They have known each other forever and the thought of losing each other isn't really something they have factored in. Their friends are thoroughly confused and say things that motivate them to start seeing other people and deal with the divorce. This gets complicated for them and they go through something like the 9 stages of grief. I really enjoyed this movie and thought there were many, many extremely funny moments. It's not a light comedy by any means, but it will keep you laughing the entire way.
