The film wants us to think that it's insightful and deeper than the usual domestic comedy-drama. It's not.
New York Times:
Though it sets out to explain why this marriage is worth saving, The Story of Us could prompt even single members of the audience to file for divorce.
The Story of Us is flawed, but not seriously enough to curtail its ability to function as unpretentious entertainment.
Other people's problems can usually get to you after an hour and 45 minutes. But in Rob Reiner's heartstring-plinking comedy The Story of Us, you just might lose interest during the first 10.
