They Came Together

Out Now On-Demand

He came... she came... they both came.

Amy Poehler (TV's Parks & Recreation) and Paul Rudd (Anchorman) star in this rom-com satire about a woman whose small business is under threat by a mega corporation.

Relates the epic love story of Joel (Rudd), a corporate executive for Candy Systems and Research, a mega candy store chain, and Molly (Poehler), the owner of a small sweet shop called Upper Sweet Side. When Joel is tasked with shutting down Molly’s mom-and-pop operation, the unlikely lovers find themselves thrown into a whirlwind romance. Directed by David Wain, who brought us the 2001 Sundance Film Festival cult classic Wet Hot American Summer, it pokes fun at every rom-com convention ever conceived.

A lively comic jamboree that's sometimes smarter than it is funny and hits about as often as it misses, but is, on balance, a good deal of fun.

Less than the sum of its often funny parts.

Happily, Poehler and Rudd are as irresistible as ever.

There are a lot of laughs in They Came Together, but few curveballs.

Doesn’t quite reach the level of prime Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker spoofery...
