Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg play the title characters, a married couple going through a divorce while trying to stay friends. They hang out with each other all of the time and still live in the same house, much to the chagrin of friends and co-workers. Jones co-wrote the screenplay with Will McCormack (who also plays a supporting role), and the movie has a fresh feel. Jones goes all-out with her performance. She’s funny, but also awkward and nasty when her script needs her to be. Samberg does his best film work yet as the confused-artist type who likes to dig deep holes for himself and then go surfing. It’s nothing groundbreaking, but it’s different enough to make it a relatively unique romantic-comedy experience.
