Coming to theatres this Friday from director/writer David Wain and Lionsgate comes a quirky comedy THEY CAME TOGETHER.
This film tells the story of Molly (Amy Poehler) and Joel (Paul Rudd), two people who are totally out of sorts with each other. Molly owns a an indie shop and seems happy living on her own. Joel owns Corporate Candy Company and threatens Molly’s business.
Both are getting over relationships but somehow, in one fell swoop, they find themselves in each others arms. Spending all their time together it seems as if they may have found the answer to love.
But, sometimes you have to be apart in order to be apart together.
FINAL WORD: Poehler as Molly is definitely quirky and delivers her lines with wit, snap and a tad bit of corny added in for good measure. This character isn’t a huge stretch for Poehler but then why should it be since she is adding her own flair to characters already played by others.
Rudd as Joel is his equally quirky self delivering campy lines with a 50’s toothy grin. Having a difficult time getting over an ex-girlfriend it’s hard for him to move on with Molly. It doesn’t help that ex-Tiffany (Cobie Smulders) is in his apartment wearing lingerie!
Explaining their relationship to friends Kyle (Bill Hader) and Karen (Ellie Kemper), these couple dig deep into what it means to be in love – as only they could!
Other cast include: Christopher Meloni as Roland, Michael Ian Black as Trevor, Ed Helms as Eggbert, Michael Murphy as Roger, Kenan Thompson as Teddy, Jack McBrayer as Oliver, Ken Marino as Tommy, Max Greenfield as Jake, Jason Mantzoukas as Bob, and Melanie Lynskey as Brenda.
TUBS OF POPCORN: I give THEY CAME TOGETHER three tubs of popcorn out of five. Does this remind me of a melding of WHEN HARRY MET SALLY, JERRY MCGUIRE, MRS. ROBINSON, MEET THE FOCKERS and other romantic comedies, absolutely. Is it a little weird, absolutely!
There is a lot of shock factor here with the weird conversations, mumblings between each other and swear words to delight even the most expert naughty linguist! This is definitely geared toward those of us who have the weirdest senses of humor.
In the end – he came…she came…they both came!
