  • Lee Toland Krieger's humorous romantic drama CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER focuses on best friends who stay incredibly close even after they divorce. Celeste (Rashida Jones) is a type-A marketing whiz with a knack for trend spotting, and Jesse (Andy Samberg) is a struggling artist with an irresponsible streak. They've been BFFs since 10th grade, and even though their attempt at marriage together failed, they still spend every day together, enjoying their private jokes and making each other laugh, six months after their separation. He hopes for a reconciliation, she wants him to grow up. Their deep bond takes its first serious blow when Jesse finally does become involved with another woman - causing each of them to wonder how to be in each other's lives. Co-written by Jones and actor Will McCormack, the movie co-stars Ari Graynor, Eric Christian Olsen, and Emma Roberts.

  • Critic Reviews
    "A likably bittersweet relationship film....Jones is great in the part ...and the actress makes her character's clumsy heartache feel like more than a plot point."
    Hollywood Reporter

    "Rashida Jones and SNL's Andy Samberg are hilarious and heartfelt..."
    Rolling Stone

    "It's an interesting premise....These actors are appealing too..."
    Wall Street Journal

    "[A] breezy, ironic indie....CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER delivers an affectionate and intelligent look at how even the closest couples can find that breaking up is so very hard to do."
    Los Angeles Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] winning contemporary love story that offers refreshing surprises and characters who behave in believable ways."
    USA Today

    "CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER has an affectionate, grounded take on Los Angeles, which comes across like a tangibly pleasant, lived-in place on screen..."

    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] good-hearted romantic comedy about a likable couple....It begins with a group of believable modern Los Angelinos, embeds them in a fantasy and then introduces a plot twist that's both unexpected and devastating to their cozy routine."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    3 stars out of 4 -- "Jones and Samberg nail every laugh. More surprisingly, they also play their characters for real, letting confusion and hurt seep in between the sillier setups."
    Rolling Stone

    "CELESTE AND JESSE bounces along with nimble invention....It's been awhile since a romantic comedy mustered this much charm by looking this much like life." -- Grade: A-
