When Joel (Paul Rudd) and Molly (Amy Poehler) meet, it's hate at first sight: his big Corporate Candy Company threatens to shut down her quirky indie candy shop. Plus, Joel is hung up on his sexy ex (Cobie Smulders). But amazingly, they fall in love, until they break up about two thirds of the way through, and Molly starts dating her accountant (Ed Helms). But then right at the end...well you'll just have to see. (Hint: Joel makes a big speech and they get back together.)

Look, They Came Together was a weird flick. I still may have glanced suspiciously at my wife once or twice regarding the aforementioned psychedelics. Weird, but deliriously entertaining and viciously funny. A Rom-Com getting the Airplane! treatment while still managing to not go full-on parody. The cast is ridiculous in a great way and because we went into this semi-blind, having seen Rudd promoting the film on The Colbert Report the night before, I'd rather not spoil the cast for you other than to say there were uncharacteristically brilliant uses of a bunch of really funny actors/actresses. Again, the movie itself is a sendup of the romantic comedy genre with a weird gonzo twist. Rom-com tropes are presented, deconstructed and often annihilated. As Rudd said on Colbert "It's a toothless attack but a vicious homage" to the traditional romantic comedy. This is not to say you won't see some bits developing, because unless you're among the most cinematically challenged viewers, some of this is almost TOO cute. But that familiar formula only serves to lull you into a false sense of comfort and makes those very, very weird tangents all the more enjoyable.
This isn't a movie for everyone and some will bristle at the crudeness of a couple scenes - despite Rudd's assertion, there is most definitely some bite in this attack - but I'd be lying if I said I didn't thoroughly enjoy this movie because of those very unexpected, often head-scratching forays into the bizarre. Probably destined to be critically panned and severely underrated amongst moviegoers accustomed to seeing films that merely live up to their expectations, I suspect this will find a pretty dedicated cult following in the very near future as it certainly lends itself to repeated viewings. And this next time, I'll be fully prepared for the trip.
Not GOOD-bad, as in Plan 9 From Outer Space or Born Losers, but BAD-bad- not a shred of originality, pure tedium. Watching feces go down the toilet would be more entertaining (to express it in keeping with the film's sensibilities, though they wouldn't have used the word "feces"). A better choice would be Jersey Girl, a classy, marvelous and VERY subtle parody of rom-coms that turns the genre on its head by breaking nearly every rule- and, it's a surprisingly good rom-com to boot!
