Think that Andy Samberg’s just an idiot man-child? Maybe Celeste and Jesse Forever will change your perspective, forever.
In this Rashida Jones-penned dramedy a recently divorced couple try to maintain their friendship whilst navigating the dating game.
C&J doesn’t turn up any tree’s but with well-placed laughs and solid dialogue, it’s a pleasant watch. Tonally, think Blue Valentine with a little wit and Samberg immaturity and you’re on the right lines.
Something felt missing though, like a truly memorable scene or moment to really define it.
Ultimately, C&J is a sweet, interesting take on a rom-com but it’s no classic.
