Summary: The story is about a woman begins an affair with her ex-husband, despite the fact he's now married to the woman he had left her for. To complicate matters, she's also drawn to a potential new love. This movie has so funny parts in it but the ending was not very good.
Excerpt: Ever make major decision in your life and wondered if you did the right thing? Freshman Director and Writer (‘Father Of The Bride’, ‘Something’s Gotta Give’) Nancy Meyers takes this every day quandary and deftly applies it to a divorcee’s decision to become involved with her remarried ex-husband in the film ‘It’s Complicated’.
Summary: A sensational cast in decent screenplay. Has its funny moments but the drama was spot on. A romantic comedy for married couples. I felt this could have been better in certain aspects. It's Complicated was realistic and didn't feel like a Hollywood type flick. I felt Streep and Baldwin did a splendid job in carrying this film.
Summary: It's a shame this film is so predictable, because the performances by all of the cast members are nuanced and special. The film leans more towards the dramatic side, although there are some charmingly funny moments. Steve Martin is the standout for me here, proving that he has a talent for subtle and believable acting.
Summary: It may be as predicable as the tides, but it is still a more productive use of two hours than most contemporary romantic comedies are. This is mainly due to excellent performances from the key players, particularly the always-reliable Alec Baldwin.
Summary: I'm such a huge fan of the romantic comedy genre, because I love fun, feel good movies. This is one of them. This movie was fun, funny, and entertaining. Meryl Streep is such a pleasure to watch, and while Alec Baldwin seemed very creepy at times he was also very funny in this movie. Steve Martin...well, I'm glad he had something to do (and I'm glad he was tame and over the top with the slapstick).
Summary: Saturday night... movie night with the girlfriend. She wants to get a film I've never really heard of called It's Complicated, from the description all I see is that it's a romcom. I suggest some other films saying that I'm not really in the mood for another romcom, as there seems to be one released every week lately, they're all so formulaic and we seem to see them all. Needless to say 5 minutes later we were sitting on the couch, settling in to watch It's Complicated.
