Quote:
"Celeste & Jesse Forever" is about two people who met in high school, married young and are growing apart. Now thirty, they decide to get divorced and attempt to stay best friends while pursuing other relationships. This plan is not as simple as they had imagined. Celeste--imperious, successful and driven--is convinced that divorcing the boyish Jesse is the right thing to do. Jesse passively accepts this transition into friendship, even though he still is in love with her. As the reality of their separation sets in, Celeste slowly and painfully realizes she has been cavalier about their relationship. But her timing with Jesse is less than fortuitous. While navigating the turbulent changes in their lives and in their hearts, these two learn that in order to truly love someone, you may have to let them go.

The concept is pretty unoriginal, but it's nice to see Rashida gain some chops in something other than acting, and it's also nice to see Samberg in the type of role I feel he could be really great in and return to often. Hopefully he keeps picking projects like this, and stays the fuck away from Happy Madison. His career trajectory has some serious longevity potential if he plays his cards right. If not, he's the next Chris Kattan. Who? Exactly.

With all that said, everyone who knows me is aware of my love for a quality rom-com, so I'll be seeing this on opening night, since there's no way MPLS won't land it.

Sounds interesting. I could see myself enjoying Samberg in this type of movie.

Read about this not too long ago. Very excited to see it. Agreed that this seems like the stuff Samberg should be doing, and not the Happy Madison shit.

I think I remember hearing it's a little less than stellar, but I'm still very interested. A trailer would be great.

Cool cast but it does sound kind of unoriginal. I echo the Samdberg thing, I think these are the types movies he should do

If you want a good movie with a similar storyline, watch Breaking Upwards.

I loved the song too.



But this definitely looks like the rom com I've been looking for.
