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.

A rom-com for the saga generationBy SallyTorquay (18 reviews) from Torquay , 24 Nov 2012Meryl Streep is a brilliant actress but this isn't a brilliant film. If anyone else had played her character it would have been a really mediocre film. Alec Baldwin is likeable. Steve Martin plays a puppy-dog character. No one has to work too hard. The plot could have explored the 'sex with the ex' line much more. It always stayed too much on the side of funny, and never became dangerous. Gavin and Stacey is more biting than this.
