"Celeste and Jesse Forever" (2012 release; 92 min.) brings the story of Celeste (played by Rashida Jones, who also co-wrote the script) and Jesse (played by Andy Semberg), who have been "best friends forever" since their youth, got married 6 years ago, and now are separating but still remain friends. One day Jesse runs into Veronica, a Belgian girl (played by Rebecca Dayan), and starts dating her, even though he remains tormented by the loss of Celeste. In the rest of the movie we watch and wonder whether Celeste and Jesse ultimately will reconcile.

First off, you need to take a leap of faith that, despite still being BFFs, Celeste and Jesse are in the process of divorcing. It's never explained why that is happening, other than a general "taking each other for granted" type explanation (which does not square with the two spending all their time together). But once you can get over that, the movie works like a charm. Jones just oozes charisma, and with her recent roles in The Social Network, The Muppets, and Our Idiot Brother (not to mention her TV work on Parks and Recreation), she is cearly an up-and-coming talent. Can't wait to see what she will do next. There are several other smaller but still choice roles in here, notably Elijah Wood as Celeste's boss, Emma Roberts (niece of Julia Roberts by the way) as the Ke$ha-like pop singer, and the already mentioned Rebecca Dayan as the Belgian girl.

Bottom line, I really enjoyed this more than what I expected going in, and in that sense "Celeste and Jesse Forever" is another winning indie rom-com, not unlike, say, Ruby Sparks, Friends With Kids or even Your Sister's Sister. "Celeste and Jesse Forever" is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I did not expect this movie to be as good as it was when I decided to purchase it. This is one of those movies that, when you reflect back on the situations the main characters find themselves in, you really appreciate the movie and may end up watching it a second or third time through. The acting was solid, especially when it needed to be (like when she finds out the big news), and most of the time when I asked myself: "How would I react to that?", their reactions were largely similar to what mine would have been.

My favorite part is the "climax" when the two main characters finally confront their emotions outside of the bar and they do it angrily and storm off. You can really feel Rashida Jones' heart breaking in that sequence of scenes as she is at her wit's end and has nothing left to lose so she goes for broke and comes up short.

This ending was the type of ending I LOVE because you will like it, or dislike it, based on who you are as a person. No doubt they are perfect for each other and had great chemistry (both in the movie and as actor/actress) and this really made the point stick that sometimes life just doesn't happen the way we want it to and no matter how much we kick and scream, it carries on with or without us.

I actually loved the language in this movie. I feel like it was placed well. I will never understand how people consider vulgar language to be indicative of anything other than a different way to express yourself. Her use of the f-bomb when she finds out the big news framed this movie's dialogue and was awesome.

This is a comedy and drama, very much like 1989's 'When Harry Met Sally.' Most important, it portrays the ups-and-downs of relationships in today's world, on TV shows and in the Real World. The question millions of people have asked themselves after a loving relationship ends, can we still be friends? Celeste and Jesse met in high school, married young, and after reaching age thirty, began to grow apart. Celeste became successful in her career and Jesse is content at being unemployed. They clash in opinions and arguments until Celeste asks for a divorce. Jesse accepts the transition, still in love with Celeste. As they are apart, Celeste had second thoughts, and they both realized that in order to truly love someone, you may have to let them go. There are mixed-emotions, humor, and heartfelt moments. Acting Performance Very Good. Enjoyable and Highly Recommended!

Comedy and drama are deftly blended in this touching and unusual movie about a couple on the verge of divorce who are having trouble letting go and moving on. Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg are perfectly cast in the title roles; their characters are flawed but lovable, and both actors give sensitive and honest performances. The supporting players are uniformly excellent, and director Lee Toland Krieger capitalizes on all the inherent laughter and heartache in the clever script which was written by leading lady Jones and Will McCormack (who also plays the part of Skillz in the film).

The blu-ray offers superb picture and sound, and contains a numbers of bonus features, including a "making of" featurette, a Q&A session conducted at the LA Film Fest where the film made its debut, a few deleted scenes, two commentaries, and the theatrical trailer for this film and several other Sony Pictures Classics releases. For me, the biggest surprise contained in the bonus material was interview footage of Andy Samberg, in which he expressed a certain level of insecurity about his ability to play the more serious scenes in the film; I've always detected a layer of truth in his comedy, even when he was playing slapstick, and so it didn't surprise me at all that he was able to tap into that same humanity and play drama convincingly.

"Celeste and Jesse Forever" is highly recommended to fans of the various cast members, to moviegoers looking for a new spin on an old theme (romantic comedies about divorced couples), and to student filmmakers interested in seeing how a small, modestly budgeted film can be expertly put together. A gem.
