They Came Together

They Came Together is a good movie and it is enjoyable. I rented it from Amazon (it did not play in my non-select movie city). Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler star in this spoof of romantic comedies.

The ploit is sort like You’ve Got Mail.  Rudd works for a big candy company and Poehler owns a small candy shop.  They meet at a party and it does not go well. However there is an attraction and they do end up dating.  As the movie opens,Rudd and Poehler are telling the story of how they met to a couple of friends.

Rudd and Poehler are both very good.  Some of the supporting performances are fun and there are some good jokes. It is nice to see Michael Ian Black as usual.

There were some jokes that failed. A couple of them were just weird and not funny. One joke would have been rejected by the American Pie series (and should been left out of this movie).

It is not great in any way and maybe it is a b minus or c plus movie at best. However the cameos by Adam Scott and John Stamos made me smile.
