Celeste and Jesse Forever

High school sweethearts (Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg), now married and in their 30s, decide to separate and see other people, while still attempting to stay close and live together. Celeste and Jesse Forever is another obnoxious and vacuous romantic comedy from a few of the young actors who continue to pollute the genre with a style of comedy that has been stale for years with the worst part about it being that they think they are creating great art. By the time the movie arrived at its emotional climax, I wasn't even aware a story was being told at which point I turned on the reverse counter display of my DVD because counting down the remaining seconds was infinitely more interesting than anything going on onscreen.
