Celeste & Jesse Forever (2012) begins with scenes from these two’s close-knit past. Their friendship bloomed into an eventual love story (as one expected) but this is not your typical love story.
The movie moves to the present where Celeste (Rashida Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samberg) seem to have a typical friendship, at least that’s how they see it. As the movie carries on various things play out, which complicate their seemingly typical friendship leaving Celeste and Jesse both to wonder about each other. Considering the two are recently divorced from each other and have been for six months they eventually realize that hanging out together on a daily basis isn’t exactly normal. This movie takes several abnormal twists which you’ll have to endure if you want to reach the end of this unique romantic comedy.
The movie ends in a bit of a disappointing way. However, to some of you atypical romantic comedy lovers out there it will be a great movie. Although true to life I find some of the bits in this movie stray away from realistic love. But you’ll have to see for yourself if this is your type of movie! Do watch, if only to see whether it was worth the watch because it’s surely a good movie to kill some time.
