Reviews: They Came Together (2014)

they_came_togetherReviews for this film from our members:

  • Jason Bailey @ Flavorwire
    • Excerpt: The spoof movie may have risen from the dead, Dracula (or, more appropriately, ‘Dracula: Dead and Loving It’) style, thanks to director David Wain and his co-writer Michael Showalter, whose rom-com send-up ‘They Came Together’ is as funny a film as I’ve seen in a good, long while.
  • Edwin Davies @ A Mighty Fine Blog
    • Excerpt: Some of the film’s reference points feel oddly dated – the idea of Molly and Joel working for opposing forces in the same industry draws heavily on You’ve Got Mail, while one montage seems inspired by Notting Hill – but in general it never gets tied to one specific film as a basis for its gags.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: They Came Together is smart and incisive satire of the scorched-earth variety.
  • Sarah Gopaul @ Digital Journal
    • Excerpt: ‘They Came Together’ is a clever parody of the romantic comedy featuring Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler as a couple who experience all the typical ups and downs generally prescribed by the genre.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: Those weaned on every Meg Ryan, Julia Roberts, Sandra Bullock and Katherine Heigl starrer will surely get a kick out THEY CAME TOGETHER, a spoof of romantic comedies that is just the right kind of so-stupid-it’s-funny and closer to parody than what we’ve been treated to as of late.
  • Simon Miraudo @ Quickflix
  • Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys
    • Excerpt: Inane, unavailing and ultimately, rather farcical, They Came Together defies the odds and somehow manages to maintain its hilarity, despite fearing the joke will wear thin after a mere matter of moments.
  • Francis Rizzo III @ DVDTalk.com
    • Excerpt: Dream comedy cast revives broad spoofs
