"They Came Together Will Make You Love Rom-Coms Again"
"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."
-Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
"David Wain‘s latest comedy brilliantly and hilariously deconstructs every aspect of the genre to provide one of the funniest films one is bound to see this year.
-Jordan Raup, Film Stage
"Easily [Wain's] best movie since Wet Hot American Summer... I don't think I've laughed harder or more consistently in a comedy in years."
- Quint, Ain't It Cool News
"With a successful gag rate that sits next to Airplane! in the laughs-per-minute region, They Came Together is a masterpiece of comedy, David Wain’s strongest film to date.
- Ethan Anderton, Box Office Buz
"[Wain and Showalter] have created the perfect parody...the film will keep you laughing every 15 seconds...every bit as brilliant as classic spoofs like Airplane!, Young Frankenstein and The Naked Gun, but still stands on its own with Wain's unique comedic sensibilities....it's glorious, and just might be Wain's best film yet...[he] and Showalter show that the art of lampooning is far from dead, and merely needed some legitimate talent to make it shine again.
- Andrew Jones, FirstShowing.net
