They Came Together



Leave it to David Wain to create an over-the-top send-up of the Nora Ephron romantic comedy genre in all its cliched glory.  Often clever.  Sometimes hilarious.  Occasionally painful and just really wrong.  But always enjoyable.  Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler, Bill Hader, Ellie Kemper, Cobie Smulders, Max Greenfield, Ed Helms, Christopher Meloni, Michael Ian Black, a host of other cameos, and a short but welcome runtime make it worth your while.  And the best part is that you can watch it at home on Video on Demand. 

Grade: A-

Who is this movie for?  Anyone who wants to laugh and doesn't mind some inappropriate material.  It's probably a good compromise of a comedy for both men and women.  And for more wacky Wain's World absurdity, pair it with the overlooked 'The Ten'.
