Fun, witty romcomBy a customer from Longstanton , 03 Jan 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]This romcom has a rather dull title, which, if it hadn't been for free preview tickets, probably wouldn't have lured me to the cinema. It also included in the lead one of my less favoured actresses - Meryl Streep.
However, it turned out to be a well written and acted comedy that had many 'laugh out loud' moments - perfect for a Sunday evening.
Meryl Streep was very believable in the main role and played out a very realistic character in a film that wasn't full of the usual over-the-top Hollywood sentimentality. Alec Baldwin played her x-husband, having left her for the typical younger woman. Looking his age, and with a bit of a paunch, he pulled off a decent 'twinkle in the eye' lawyer. However, I found Steve Martin outshone him playing a rather more introspective character without any of the annoying characteristics of his more typical roles in e.g. Father of the Bride.
The surprise performance was from John Krasinski - someone i hadn't come across before - as a current boyfriend of one of their children - who delivered some great lines and helped the dynamic of the main storyline.
Overall this is a feelgood movie about life post-divorce and the changing dynamics and priorities pre- and post-divorce.

It's simple-watch it!By The KnightWatcher (629 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 01 Apr 2013Good cast Meryl streep, Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin in a great Rom Com about affair with first husband. Very funny. Entertaining and a bit sad with an ending that is hard to predict.

It was OK and I did laugh!By floydbaggins (38 reviews) from Aberystwyth , 27 Jan 2013Yes it was funny and the characters good, but only in an average sort of way! I wouldnt say it was outstanding although I liked Meryl Streep. Maybe I was expecting more as I remember the TV ads when it was coming to the cinema...I thought it was going to be the 'comedy of the year' or some other hype!
