Movie Preview: Streep, Martin, and Baldwin in It's Complicated

Movie Preview: Streep, Martin, and Baldwin in It's Complicated


Though I truly love Father of the Bride and Baby Boom, I'm starting to think that the projects coming from writer/director Nancy Meyers in these later years of her career (like Something's Gotta Give) are only as strong as her casts. And even then, the actors can only do so much. This latest movie from Meyers, It's Complicated, looks cute enough, if a little bland, and it seems to benefit tremendously from the lovable Meryl Streep in the lead role.

Streep plays a divorced woman who starts to have feelings for her remarried exhusband (Alec Baldwin) just as a sweet single man (Steve Martin) takes a shine to her. It's perhaps an ordinary love triangle rom-com, but I like that it features older characters who have already gone through heartache and divorce. Still, I hope the movie in its entirety is more interesting than the trailer makes it seem. My favorite part includes Streep and Martin's characters, um, getting a little silly.

The movie hits theaters Dec. 25. To check out the trailer,

I definitely going to watch this movie. It's refreshing to have older characters, and it doesn't hurts that one of my favorite actress is in the movie. I'm definitely going to watch this movie with my mom.

I hope that they'll keep the "Harley (J. Krasinski) in Victoria Secret pajamas" scene in.

I thought it looked cute. The trailer did make me smile so I'll probably drag my (divorced) mum to see it with me.

really?! I'm so tired of these stupid, run-of-the-mill, let's pretend that all couples get divored and then start doing nefarious acts with other stupid oler people movies. I mean; isn't this basically the same thing as Something's Gotta Give; and I am just so tired of Hollwood corrupting us by trying to act like every single married couple is going to get a divorce and then go whore around...
