A great little movie. Rashida is an underrated actress—she’s a natural. A few slow spots to zip thru but overall really enjoyable.

I thought this was really cute and funny. Someone commented on only people under 20 would it and I am 33 and loved it. I like both Andy Samberg and Rashida Jones' comic styles but could see why some people might think it's borning(?) but I was highly entertained:)

Redefines "happy ending". Well done.

You have to get past the first 15-20 minutes, the whole movie is not as stupid as the lip balm scene (this should have been edited). Decent acting, good laughs and for the most part well written and interesting.

This movie turned out to be surprisingly boring. We stopped watching after about 20 min.

Young adults who don't know who they are or what they want yet (fair enough) pinballing around randomly bumping into each other to see what happens. Some characters grow a bit - not enough to be a relationship movie...but maybe the prequel to a coming of age story. worth a watch.

it's not a comedy in the classic sense ... it is a great commentary on contemporary relationships and a lighthearted poke at living in LA. What happens when you are married and best friends but now getting divorced. Then one of you is having a baby with your new partner and the other one is having trouble even dating, but one or both of you can't let go of your relationship. I think I would have liked it even better if there were not so many f-bombs being thrown around.

This movie is like someone tried to make a Woody Allen movie, without Woody having anything to do with it, just fell flat.

I'm NOT a rom-con 'fan',.. but this sharply scripted gem is suprisingly interesting, well acted, and relatively free of cliche. Well worth an attentive watching.

The trailer for this movie is great, but the movie adds little to those highlights.
