They Came Together

They Came Together

I fully expected this to be terrible and was looking so forward to writing a delightfully snide review. Something akin to “They Came Together falls apart”.

And then Paul Rudd’s face happened.

This is a excellent spoof of romantic comedies that far exceeds the various Scary Movie style spoofs that killed the genre. With a talented cast,  non-specific film references and absurd humour, this is an Airplane quality spoof. It’s thankfully self-aware and the best jokes are surprisingly subtle, even hidden.

They Came Together is not for everyone. If you are lactose intolerant in the cinematic sense, you will not appreciate the ratio of cheese to wit.

7/10

We see you there…being all in on the joke and smart and stuff.
