    They Came Together is one joke repeated until you're broken down by the giggles. It shouldn't work as well as it does, and wouldn't if it weren't perfectly cast with America's Comedy Sweethearts.

    It knows how to mock cliché big things, like jokes about set-dressing and music video montages; it’s also wise about small matters, right down to the font and the framing device.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • They Came Together is a very fast, often very funny riff on a very tired Hollywood formula. Full Review
  • Stephan Lee

    Most of the jokes land bluntly – ”This is a cliché!” – but tight pacing and a killer cast, which also includes Ed Helms and Christopher Meloni, make up for the inconsistent gags.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Thanks to a smart screenplay, direction that perfectly captures the tone of modern rom-coms and two of the most engaging comedic leads working in movies and TV today, “They Came Together” is more entertaining and (in its own insane way) more endearing than two-thirds of the legitimate romantic comedies I’ve seen over the last two decades.

  • Claudia Puig

    The film's most engaging character is not actually human: It's Manhattan, of course, a point made repeatedly over that protracted dinner by the voluble lovebirds.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Occasionally very funny, and moderately funny the rest of the time. In mathematical terms that adds up to pretty funny or "funny enough."

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    Seeing clichés mimicked this skillfully is plenty hilarious.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    There are probably funnier satires out there, but They Came Together is laser accurate in the way it skewers its targets.

    HitFix Full Review
  • Jesse Cataldo

    What results is chaotic but ultimately focused, bound by an intense devotion to disassembling genre and narrative standards.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Robert Cameron Fowler

    In terms of its pure laughter quotient, They Came Together constantly delivers.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    Taking pretty much every rom-com trope and distilling it into highly concentrated ridiculousness, Wain’s film is both a takedown and a tribute: As with his summer-camp-movie spoof "Wet Hot American Summer," you walk away with a renewed love for the genre.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Scott Foundas

    A lively comic jamboree that’s sometimes smarter than it is funny and hits about as often as it misses, but is, on balance, a good deal of fun.

    Variety Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Larky, witty and sometimes even wise, this spoof on every rom-com ever made is less a fully realized film than an extended skit, a series of set pieces that poke gentle and sometimes transgressively crude fun at the tropes of girl-meets-boy that have enchanted and addled audiences for generations.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Poehler and Rudd riff and banter like old marrieds, and make even the cheesiest lines funny, make even the cliched dating montages set to syrupy pop music feel — if not fresh and new — at least funny enough to mock.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • David Hughes

    Reinforcing the very rom-com tropes it's sending up, this is a little too postmodern for its own good. Happily, Poehler and Rudd are as irresistible as ever.

    Empire Full Review
  • Dana Stevens

    This rough-edged parody feels both distinctive and handmade, and for those reasons alone it’s a hard movie to hate, even when it temporarily loses its comic footing. Anyway, as romantic comedies down the ages have taught us, hatred is just a latent form of love.

    Slate Full Review
  • Genevieve Koski

    There are a lot of laughs in They Came Together, but few curveballs. The biggest surprise is that the film feels so safe.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Keith Uhlich

    Here, though, everyone involved seems above the rom-com conventions they’re satirizing, so anxious to get to each punch line that they let the connective tissue languish. You howl often but quickly forget why.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Courtney Shea

    Poehler’s Parks and Rec co-star Adam Scott is there, playing a sound engineer and so is John Stamos from "Full House," because, you know, that’s funny. Until it’s tiresome.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Manohla Dargis

    Mr. Wain, who made a delightful comedy with “Role Models” and a cult favorite with “Wet Hot American Summer,” has opted to deliver a series of hit-and-miss sketch-comedy bits rather than a fully realized movie that might have gutted contemporary rom-com clichés rather than just weakly aping them.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    A feature-length lampoon needs more than rubbery performances, so-so silliness and the constant thrum of meta humor to make it a consistently amusing variation on a theme.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    So why isn’t They Came Together more uniformly hilarious? Perhaps it’s that elusive problem of trying to explain why a thing is funny in the first place: Spelling it out deflates the joke.

    New York Post Full Review
  • John DeFore

    A great many of these individual scenes are funny... But the film fails to do what those rare, immortal rom-coms get right: take all its individually pleasing ingredients and make a satisfying movie out of them.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    Means to make fun of romantic comedies the way "Airplane!" goofed on disaster movies and the "Naked Gun" films spoofed detective flicks. The result is actually more in line with Gus Van Sant’s ambitious but ill-advised shot-for-shot remake of "Psycho." Full Review
  • Alonso Duralde

    The characters, the situations, and the story are whatever they need to be in the moment to launch whatever joke the movie feels like telling at that moment. This is Wain and Showalter working in “Wet Hot American Summer” spoof mode, and if you're a fan of that movie, you may well like this one as well.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    A ponderous spoof of movie rom-coms that plummets stupidity to a new low even by Hollywood standards.
