For anyone who has been through a break-up with someone but still remained best friends, "Celeste & Jesse Forever" will ring very true.

Hey hey hey! The dog days of August are upon us, which means summer is both at its peak (temperature-wise) and nigh complete (vacation time-wise). There are just a few more weeks to squeeze in those action-packed, costume-rife, voice-modulator-studded blockbusters – at least until Christmas – so let’s make the most of our time, shall we? Meanwhile, the limited releases include a riff on the classic rom-com “When Harry Met Sally” and a movie about getting pregnant that isn’t directed by Judd Apatow. Until next week, enjoy your local theater’s air conditioning!

If "(500) Days of Summer" is bound to be considered this generation’s "Annie Hall" (not its equal, mind you, but its closest equivalent), then it’s fair to claim that "Celeste and Jesse Forever" follows in the footsteps of "When Harry Met Sally," picking up where that film ended and proceeding to chronicle similar ups and downs in a close friendship verging on – or, rather, retreating from – full-blown romance.

Rashida Jones made a pretty significant splash at this year’s Sundance, co-writing and starring alongside "Saturday Night Live" alum Andy Samberg in the romantic dramedy “Celeste and Jesse Forever.” We were among many who gave the film a pretty solid recommendation, calling it a “charming tale of romance and heartbreak in the vein of 'When Harry Met Sally,' ” which is probably about as a high of praise as possible for a film of this sort.

Despite the occasional film like "John Carter," the major studios are having a pretty good time of it in 2012. The box office is up all over, and films like "The Hunger Games," "21 Jump Street" and "The Avengers" have performed above expectations with both critics and audiences.
