Celeste and Jesse Forever

Let me start by stating the obvious. This movie, without a doubt, is a chick flick. Do I care? No. I am an equal opportunity movie viewer, no discrimination here. I enjoy chick flicks, animated films, dramas and even mindless action films alike. For the most part, if Hollywood will produce it, I will watch it.

That said, I enjoyed this movie. I hoped I would since I’m a fan of both lead actors. Andy Samberg has been about the only reason to watch Saturday Night Live over the past few years and is hilarious as part of Lonely Island. Also, Rashida Jones has been a part of two of my favorite TV shows, The Office and Parks and Recreation. For me to like a chick flick, the key is laughter. I definitely laughed.

Jones and Samberg play a couple that were best friends since high school, married, and recently divorced, but remain best friends. Those around them are constantly confronting them about how strange it is that they continue to be so close and spend so much time together. Awkwardness abounds and mistakes are made as Jesse begins to see another woman and their relationship is strained. I’m not huge on the mushy, emotional aspects, but there were enough jokes and quirks to keep me laughing. I found it absolutely hilarious that when Jesse was down, he would watch his recording of weightlifting from the Beijing Olympics and cry.

Not appropriate for kids because of the adult humor and language used throughout. I had fun watching this movie and that’s what it’s all about right? Not the best movie you’ll see, but far from the worst.

For me, it slides in right at 3 out of 5 Beach balls.

  1. I don’t have a twitter account so I’ll ask this question here: how many Beach balls are you giving Clemens for the AARP frosted tips?

    • weaintgottimetobleed/YOUR RIGHT/ FOREIGN NEWS/I FROM CANADA/WHAT YOUR GOVERNMENT DOES NOT WANT YOU TO KNOW:AMERICAN VETERANS (DEPORTED AND PENDING DEPORTATION):__________________________________________________________________________Mr. Ventura, I understand you are an ex NAVY SEAL and VIETNAM VETERAN. So I am aknisg you to please read this, as you would leave NO MAN BEHIND. The comment below is from two ex Vietnam Veterans fighting on behalf of themselves and of many others. I am also going to say I am a rebel like yourself and will have to continue posting as many times as needed to ask you to read this. One day, HOPEFULLY BEFORE YOU BECOME PRESIDENT, I hope you see this and respond. THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO STIR THE POT SO TO SPEAK. And you would have a field day with this one on your ticket The Brothers Valenzuela (AMERICAN VIETNAM VETERANS)asked me to post this: Can YOU tell Jessie Ventura that homeland sec has being deporting veterans. That when it came to us Vietnam Veteran brothers they messed up, totally screwed-up with us. First they didn’t know we are blood brothers, 2nd they didn’t know about our American born Mother, No military records of us and further more we are Vietnam Veterans. Homeland has been getting away with this despicable act like the gestapo did in Germany, this is a high crime of treason perpetrated by this agency on Military Veterans. We have been on the local news here in Colorado and we will not stop until we get national News, this (CONSPIRACY) has been going on for 10 years or longer, Homeland admitted, they don’t keep records of how many veterans have been deported. JESSIE VENTURA needs to talk to us so that we can expose this act to the American people. If Jesse Ventura knew about our plight, he would come to our side. He is a Vietnam Veteran, he was and is a Navy Seal till the end .Thank you.

      • My husband sevred in the Army infantry in Viet Nam, 1968-1970. He has recently been experiencing some unexpected medical problems; tinitus in ears and now sinus or nasal cancer. Because of this he has been working with VA to get medical benefits and we began to discover information on birth defects of Viet Nam veteran’s children.All 3 of our children were born with skeletal deformities and connective tissue disorders. Their rib cages grew inward crowding their hearts and restricting lung capacity which made surgery necessary. Our son also had a spinal defect; there was a congenital birth defect in the L4 vertebrae which did not fuse together properly and and continued to slip until he required major surgery when he was 15 years old. This has left him partially disabled and unable to do many normal activities because of pain.
