Rashida Jones Pays Homage To The '90s With 'Flip And Rewind' Music Video
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Rashida Jones just dropped a video for her new single "Flip and Rewind," and it has us feeling all sorts of nostalgic.  In the video, which includes a cameo by Jermaine Dupri, Jones reminisces about the past, expressing her love for all things '90s -- the music, the vibe, the clothes.  "All I wanna do is go back," she tells Durpri over FaceTime. In a dream-like flash, the viewer is transported back to the days of center parts and ponytails, hoop earrings, mom jeans, tiny backpacks and cropped turtlenecks. (The video could also have taken place in Williamsburg last week. We can't quite tell.) There's also a great choreographed dance sequence, which reportedly features Jones' high school dance crew.  Jones explained what drove her to make the video in a recent interview with Rolling Stone.  "The inspiration for the video that Will [McCormack] and I directed was to try to evoke the feeling of the Nineties, but not in a mocking way. I think for you and I both, it’s such ...

Rashida Jones' First Post-'Parks' Job
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Rashida Jones may be leaving "Parks and Recreation" after the first 13 episodes of Season 6, but she's already got another job lined up. Sadly, it's not in front of the camera. Jones and her "Celeste & Jesse Forever" writing partner, Will McCormack, are developing comedy "Stuck" for Fox, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The "Stuck" pilot was written by "Parks and Rec" scribe Alexandra Rushfield, and centers around a middle-aged woman who feels stuck in her monotonous bank job. The woman helps her "stuck in childhood" daughter get a job at the bank, but the plan backfires when her daughter becomes her boss. The comedy will follow the trials and tribulations of the pair at work and home as both try and get "unstuck." The comedy earned a put-pilot commitment at Fox which virtually guarantees it will be picked up to series, and is set up at Warner Bros. Television, who will produce alongside Jones and McCormack's Le Train Train production company. "Parks" execut ...

Truth Trumps Funny
The Portland Mercury - over 4 years
Truth trumps funny in Celeste and Jesse Forever. by Marjorie Skinner CELESTE AND JESSE FOREVER is well underway before it becomes clear that it begins six months after the breakup of its titular characters, played by Rashida Jones (who co-wrote the screenplay) and Andy Samberg. After a succinct opening-credit montage of the rise and fall of their marriage (they married young, and she dumped him when her professional ambitions put too much distance between their lifestyles), we're shunted into Celeste and Jesse's world of impressively annoying inside jokes. They make heart shapes at each other with their hands by way of greeting; they speak to each other in fake German accents; they masturbate ChapStick tubes. It's only when a close friend explodes in exasperation that we learn they've been separated for six months, even though Jesse still lives in the studio behind their house. Clearly, things are about to get complicated. Although ...

'Celeste and Jesse Forever' review: Surprising
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
'Celeste and Jesse Forever' review: Surprising Therein lies the highly original yet entirely plausible premise of the film: a couple that is doing everything (and I mean everything) in their power to remain best friends forever, even when it seems that their partnership is coming to an inevitable end. At the center of this spectacle is Celeste, a controlling career woman who has given up on Jesse, a slacker whose greatest ambition seems to be watching reruns of the 2008 Olympics, as husband material. Jones and Will McCormack (hilarious as Celeste's pot dealer friend) co-wrote the script, which offers plenty of offbeat supporting characters: Elijah Wood has a nice turn as Celeste's unhip gay co-worker; Emma Roberts has some fun as Celeste's troublesome but observant pop star client; and Chris Messina is appealing as a roguish yoga student/pickup artist.

Why 'Celeste & Jesse Forever' Is Like 'Broadcast News'
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Lee Toland Krieger wasn't planning to read the script for "Celeste and Jesse Forever" in one night. It just sort of happened that way. "I thought, 'I'll read it first thing in the morning,'" Krieger told HuffPost Entertainment. "I opened the first page, though, and was immediately hooked. I read the whole thing right there." Following the late-night reading frenzy, Krieger had a meeting with producer Jennifer Todd and co-writers Rashida Jones and Will McCormack to make his case as director. "Luckily enough I was able to get the gig." Luck probably had little to do with it: Not even 30 years old, "Celeste and Jesse Forever" is Krieger's third feature directing credit, but judging from the critical and financial response to the film, it will hardly be his last. (Krieger is already lining up his next film, "The Spectacular Now," with Kyle Chandler, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Shaliene Woodley and Brie Larson.) Co-starring Jones and Andy Samberg as a couple who try to re ...

Meet The Busiest Actor Of 2012: Chris Messina
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Chris Messina is everywhere. Not literally, but almost: He makes an appearance in six films this year ("Ruby Sparks," "Celeste and Jesse Forever," "The Giant Mechanical Man," "Fairhaven," "28 Hotel Rooms" and the upcoming "Argo"), while also co-starring on three television series ("Damages," "The Newsroom" and the new Fox show "The Mindy Project"). He's so ubiquitous, in fact, that HuffPost Entertainment even made a chart to help new fans tell the difference between Messina and Mark Duplass, another hilariously busy actor in 2012. "That was really nice of you guys to do that," Messina, who was sent the chart by Duplass, told HuffPost. "I love Mark, and it was flattering that you guys thought of us." It's hard not to think of Messina, especially with two of his films in theaters right now: "Ruby Sparks" and the just-released "Celeste and Jesse Forever." In that latter film, about a couple navigating the waters of a divorce, Messina plays Paul, a yoga aficionado with eyes ...

Rashida Jones On 'Celeste and Jesse Forever': 'I Wanted To Play Somebody ... Less Likeable'
The Huffington Post - over 4 years
What happens when a couple knows it's over but can't bear to part? That's the painful scenario at the heart of "Celeste and Jesse Forever," the new indie rom-com co-written by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack. When the movie begins, Celeste (Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samberg) are deep in denial about what their decision to get divorced means for them and those around them. No, they're not having sex anymore -- not regularly, anyway -- but does that mean they can't keep going to dinner with friends and making schmoopy faces and reading the menu to each other in hilarious voices? Eventually, alas, it does. And the result is an emotional roller coaster ride that's alternately hilarious and excruciating to behold. Actually, it's mostly both at the same time. Samberg gets first-timer points for playing a three-dimensional character who doesn't carry his genitals in a box, but it's Jones who delivers a truly revelatory performance. This isn't the goody-two-shoes we know from Pawnee ...

Marshall Fine: Review: Celeste and Jesse Forever
Huffington Post - over 4 years
There inevitably will be comparisons between Celeste and Jesse Forever and (500) Days of Summer, and that's not a bad thing. Both are about intense relationships between young adults that end -- and yet go on. Both are stories of love that has grown one-sided. And both ache with the unavoidable self-pity that goes along with that kind of situation -- while finding the laughs in that same circumstance. Written by two of the film's stars, Rashida Jones and Will McCormack, and directed by Lee Toland Krieger, Celeste and Jesse Forever shows us the title characters' happy days of marriage in a slide-show of still photographs under the opening credits. But the film's real premise becomes clear in the first scene, as the titular couple (played by Andy Samberg and Jones) have dinner with a pair of soon-to-be-married friends, Beth (Ari Graynor) and Tucker (Eric Christian Olsen). Celeste and Jesse giggle and goof around, making personal in-jokes while perusing the menu -- until ...

LAFF 2012 Review: Breaking Up Is (Really) Hard to Do in Charming, Honest ‘Celeste and Jesse Forever’
Film School Rejects - over 4 years
You’d be correct in mistaking Celeste (Rashida Jones) and Jesse (Andy Samberg) for a happy couple. All the signs are there – inside jokes, Celeste’s shiny “C & J Forever” pendant, dinners with friends, professions of love, even a special sign language – but, alas, you’d be wrong. Celeste and Jesse are not forever, in fact, they’re getting a divorce. The opening credits of Lee Toland Krieger’s Celeste and Jesse Forever (penned by Jones and co-star Will McCormack) zip us through Celeste and Jesse’s relationship – from shy happiness in high school, to high stakes sexual chemistry in college, to blissful young marriage, to now (and now is exactly when things get messy). When we meet Celeste and Jesse, the pair are still acting as if they are romantically involved – and that’s the problem. Jesse has taken up residence in the couple’s backyard cottage (his studio), but other than that, everything else is status quo – the affection, the bond, the connection – and while the two of them ...

Sony set Sundance-Favourite Celeste And Jesse Forever for Summer US Release
HeyUGuys.co.uk - almost 5 years
This is a release date I’ve been really, really looking forward to hearing. After getting brilliant reviews at Sundance at the start of the year, Celeste and Jesse Forever was very quickly picked up by Sony Pictures Classics, with the announcement coming within a matter of days. The distributor has now set the US release for the film for 3rd August this summer, so if you’ve been looking forward to this as much as I have, that’s definitely a date to set in your diaries. Our man in the States, Ty Cooper, caught the film’s world premiere back in January and absolutely loved it – you can read his five-star review of the film here to see why. Directed by Lee Toland Krieger, the script was co-written by Rashida Jones (The Muppets, Parks and Recreation) and Will McCormack (Brothers & Sisters), both of whom make their writing debut here, and has a terrific cast, led by Jones herself and Andy Samberg as the eponymous Celeste and Jesse, alongside Elijah Wood, Ari Graynor, Emma Roberts, ...
