a good story with some funny situations, but ultimately the film drags down the promise

BEING ?RIGHT? ISN?T ALL IT?S CRACKED UP TO BE Celeste and Jesse brings to mind the habit I have of wanting to be right?. As a result, my life usually takes a turn for the worse. Being ?right? isn?t all it?s cracked up to be. Attachment to this way of thinking leads to my trying to control and manipulate a person or situation. The opposite is ?letting go? and creating the recipe called going

I was pretty disappointed and that's because I wanted to like this film. The couple in this Celeste and Jesse are odd, a bit sophomoric and hard to identify with. There are far better choices out there.

I ******* had a wide release. I won't be able to see it because it is playing too far away from where I live. It looks like it will be a great movie from the previews

San Francisco Chronicle
This film has a voice of its own. And at a time when the romantic comedy seems to be a lost art form, that's saying something. Full Review
Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Celeste and Jesse Forever engages in Bridget Jones-like comedy of mortification, sending its heroine down a path of self-discovery that ultimately seems more cruel than revelatory. Full Review
Betsy Sharkey
Los Angeles Times
There are moments when the film is a little too precious, taking time to preen at just how clever it is. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
Jones co-wrote the uneven script with Will McCormack, and one can't help wishing she'd aimed higher. Acknowledging cineplex clichés isn't enough if you still wind up embracing, rather than subverting, them. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
The more these two likable people rattled on, the more I found myself thinking about the elusive distinction between characters talking genuinely smart talk and simply chattering for the camera. Full Review
