DVD Review: The Came Together
This is what happened when a parody fails
Romantic comedies suck, so when I heard Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd were starring in a film that spoofs them, I was all over it. Though I should've known better since this film seemed to come out of nowhere.
Molly (Poehler) is a naive women running a cute candy shop in New York City and Joel is a jerk who works for a gigantic candy company that's going to shut her store down. They meet, they hate each other, then they fall in love. They're relaying this story to two of their friends over dinner (Played by Bill Hader and Ellie Kemper)
God, this movie wasn't even funny. Sure everything they said about romantic comedies was true, and there were a lot of talented people here, but it just fucking sucked. There's no less harsh way of saying it. The biggest miracle was that I actually sat through the whole thing.
