They Came Together is a comedy in the loosest sense of the word because it just doesn’t look in any way funny.
When Joel (Paul Rudd) and Molly (Amy Poehler) meet, it’s hate at first sight: his big Corporate Candy Company threatens to shut down her quirky indie shop. Plus, Joel is hung up on his sexy ex.
But amazingly, they fall in love, until they break up about two thirds of the way through, and Molly starts dating her accountant. But then right at the end…well you’ll just have to see. (Hint: Joel makes a big speech and they get back together.)
They Came Together also stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Michael Shannon, Christopher Meloni, Adam Scott, Ellie Kemper and Melanie Lynskey, and is released in the US next month, but hasn’t yet got a UK release date.
