Are andy samberg and rashida jones dating
To Jones’s credit as a writer-performer, she doesn’t turn Celeste into a blithering whiner or a slapstick goofball. We are never made to feel that her business smarts are somehow unfeminine or the cause of her unhappiness.
What the film is saying, ultimately, is that no one is really at fault in this scenario, least of all Celeste.
When she has a fight with Jesse about why they passed on parenthood, she blurts out, “The father of my child will own a car,” and we can sympathize.
Samberg is not in his cutup “Saturday Night Live” mode here, and that’s a tribute to him and his director, Lee Toland Krieger.
The use of songs fits this film like a glove and went with the flow.
Writers and stars of the film Will Mc Cormack and Rashida Jones should definitely collaborate again because the writing was just filled with honest humor and thoughtfulness, which created great energy for the film.
Celeste (Rashida Jones) works as a trendspotter at a swank Los Angeles marketing firm; Jesse (Andy Samberg) is a layabout artist who is now residing in her guest bungalow.
They dated in high school, got married, and now they're getting divorced.
Their best friends don't think they can maintain their friendship throughout the dissolution of their marriage, but Celeste and Jesse don't think there will be a problem.
The film had a lot of thoughtfulness to it, was delicately filmed and full of wit and raw emotion.
The downside though is that it has an overly familiar formula that has been done to death now with films like The Break-Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Take This Waltz, Friends with Kids, etcetera.
