Bland offeringBy perdita123 (14 reviews) from Arundel , 08 Mar 2013
[Highly rated reviewer]had high hopes for this one, brilliant actors but felt let down by the script, totally bland and beneath their talent also felt ending a disappointment.

Very watchableBy Leeza (16 reviews) , 01 Sep 2013Good performances by the leads and a very watchable story. This film deals with something that could potentially happen to us all and has you willing the characters to reconnect. A couple of the scenes left me a little uncomfortable (who wants to think about their parents going at it?!) but a thoughtful, sweet film over all.
Sorry DisappointingBy a customer , 29 Aug 2013Wanted to watch this due to the actors whom I normally enjoy. Very disappointed it was boring and dull. Not one of Meryl Streep's best!!!
Brilliant acting of a real problem between couplesBy Caz21 (7 reviews) , 25 Aug 2013I ordered this mainly because Steve Carell was in it, but Meryl and Tommy absolutely made this film brilliant. They made a very common problem truly believable and I, amongst others, I'm sure, must have squirmed at how close to the knuckle this got. Great, great film.
GREAT TOPIC, GREAT FUN TOO.By a customer , 24 Aug 2013A brilliant film, well worth watching. It is amusing whilst raising difficult and highly personal issues. You squirm in your seat as you watch Tommy Lee Jones and Meryl Streep squirming in theirs! A Romcom with an ending to please most.
An introverted gemBy AlanSmitheeDirects (4 reviews) , 17 Aug 2013A sensitive portrayal of a withered relationship with 2 great performances from Tommy and Meryl, hitting the perfect balance of a marriage that in equal parts is both oppressively over familiar and yet completely disconnected. You get that lovely stoicism and brush it under the carpet mentality that an older generations sometimes has for those elephant in the room issues. My only bug bear is the passivity and submissiveness of Meryl's character. She's literally inaudible, speak up woman! But the film makes up for it by mixing some great comedy moments in with the serious stuff, a great scene in the movie theatre, will have you squirming in your seat.
