CE­LESTE AND JESSE FOR­EVER

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM LISTINGS - Di­rected by Lee Toland. Star­ring Rashida Jones, Andy Sam­berg

Amus­ing, prob­lem­atic com­edy con­cern­ing a cou­ple of LA trendies who just can’t seem to break up. What makes the pic­ture fly is the de­li­cious chem­istry be­tween the two leads. Jones con­veys a stroppy sense of self-right­eous­ness that crum­bles nicely when, by chance rather than de­sign, Sam­berg hap­pens upon some over­due re­spon­si­bil­ity. The pic­ture is too much in love with its own cool, but it just about mud­dles through. 15A cert, IFI, Dublin, 92 min
