The Story of Us
Provided by Metacritic.com
Pungent, funny, and surprisingly forceful.
New York Post
Doesn't live up to the promise of its trailers.
Conspicuously short on the kind of texture that makes us feel we're watching real people living real lives.
Merry witticisms collide with empty clichés, leaving these characters with little trace of realism.
Mostly the movie is like the marriage: good casting, golden promise, yet somehow a grating ordeal.
TV Guide Magazine
Slick and glib when it means to be profound yet ruefully witty; its rhythms are pure sitcom, complete with emotional rimshots.
The script...and Rob Reiner's direction...bristle with phoniness.
The wet blanket of undigested autobiography lies all over Rob Reiner's excruciating new opus about a marriage winding down into terminal atrophy.
A sad-sack movie about the misery of a married couple who fight most of the time. Watching it is like taking a long trip in a small car with the Bickersons.
San Francisco Chronicle
The movie's most inexcusable failing is that, despite all the flashbacks, we never get a sense of what this relationship was like when it worked.
