Celeste and Jesse Forever 2011

     Married best friends Celeste and Jesse are getting a divorce.  They have been separated for six months but they still do a lot together every day.  They don’t even think about it until their engaged best friends tell them that they can’t take their togetherness any more!?  Celeste is a driven Type A marketing whiz and Jesse is an unemployed struggling artist with a slight case of irresponsibility.  Jesse begins dating again and Celeste starts going on dates of her own.  Most of her dates are not going very well.  Jesse seems to be having better luck.
      A lot of drama packed into 92 minutes.  Seems to have the need to be constantly in situations.  Needs more character development and less scattered unremarkable moments.  3* (This movie is OK)

92 min, Drama directed by Lee Toland Krieger with Rashida Jones, Andy Samberg, Ari Graynor, Eric Christian Olsen, Rob Huebel, Elijah Wood, Shira Lazar, Emma Roberts.

Note:  Blockbuster 3*, imdb 6.5 out of 10, 69% critic 69% audience on Rotten Tomatoes. 
Special Note:  This could be a continuation of 2 Days in New York with no children and the relatives have gone back to France.
