Movie Review: It's Complicated  

Posted by: ~ames~ in , , , ,

It's Complicated has an all star cast. Check it out: THE Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, and John Krasinski (from the Office, so cute in this movie!).

Ok, so Meryl plays Jane, a woman who's finally recovering from her divorce, that happened ten years ago. Her and her ex, Jake (Alec Baldwin), are finally easy around each other and civil. Jake, the ex, is married to the younger woman he cheated on Jane on.

So at their son's college graduation, Jane and Jake find themselves alone together at the hotel bar. (They live on the west coast and the son's grad is in NY). The young wife had to stay home with the sick child and all the older children are partying it up before grad. Thus the alone time in the bar. A few drinks, a few dances and Jake and Jane find themselves in bed - TOGETHER. Jane has just become the other woman, her ex-husband's mistress. LOL She's torn with guilt, but the sex is just so good and it's fun and naughty and here she is, kind of sticking it to the younger woman who stole her husband in the first place.

Enter into the scene her divorced architect, Adam (Steve Martin). He's funny, charming, not bad on the eyes and he's unmarried.

So who does Jane chose? Her ex-husband or the new guy? It's all so complicated...

All right, this movie was hilarious and GOOD. Yeah it's not a bunch of teeny boppers, but that's ok. It makes these characters and what they go through more interesting. Plus they're so talented. So if you're in the mood for a fun, romantic romp, definitely see It's Complicated. I'm thinking, if you liked Something's Gotta Give, you'll like this movie. And I LOVED Something's Gotta Give. Although I just saw this movie, I cannot wait for it to be out on DVD so I can see it again. It was cute! B+
