There is slap stick comedy, dirty comedy, musical comedy and tons of other types that all aim to make people laugh.…
They say breaking up is hard to do, and perhaps no one understands this better than actress Rashida Jones, who celebrates a gutsy divergence from her usual girl(friend)-next-door comic turns with the release of her new movie and screenwriting debut, .
Instead, we’re kind of like siblings; we spent a lot of time together and we share our own language.
We’re not in the second act of the movie, but I can’t imagine it’s always easy for the people we date. I wish; I think we both really wish, but we used up all our currency for friendship and for work—which is great, because that’s a much longer relationship than trying to be romantic and fucking it up.
The 36 year old actress stars as Celeste opposite Jesse (Andy Samberg), the two of them clinging onto a best-friend status despite their pending divorce.
Billed as “a loved story,” the sentimental comedy explores the rough goings of attraction: will there be a second act between ex-lovers, or will an understudy swoop in for the lead?
This of course is completely childish behavior – like the big sister who suddenly reclaims a toy once she sees her sibling playing with it – but that only makes it more human.
And suggests that the winsome Jones has a much bigger, smarter movie career ahead of her.
Ratings note: The film contains sexual situations, strong language and drug and alcohol abuse.
They adore each other’s company, but drive each other nuts.
Clearly, if they’re going to have a chance of staying best friends, they’re going to have to get a divorce.
