A romantic comedy of dubious morality that is nevertheless elevated by its charming cast.

I love how the story went. PLUS, Streep, Baldwin, and Martin are just so good and effortlessly entertaining all together!

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’. While played mostly for laughs, Meyers carefully steers her script and actors on a course that avoids slipping into comedic camp, while fleshing out characters and situations that appear authentic, but still leaves you in stitches.

I think casting was critical in bringing the characters in ‘It’s Complicated’ to life. I could write volumes about the acting contributions of Meryl Streep, who’s acting career spans 30 plus years. Her acting …

It's Complicated brought an interesting spin on a typical love story of a girl being stuck between to men. Just like Christine in Phantom of the Opera, Jane (Meryl Streep) has two equally appealing men vying for her attention.

“It’s Complicated” is the new film by Nancy Meyers, who has such films as “What Women Want”, “Something’s Gotta Give” and “The Holiday” to her name. Staying true to her roots, “It’s Complicated” is yet another film about relationships, and that’s not a criticism of any type. Meyers is extremely talented when it comes to picking an ensemble of actors who have on screen chemistry, writing a witty script and making a romantic, comical movie that is not just for chicks. “It’s Complicated” is a perfect example of this. Jane (Meryl Streep), a mother of three, has been divorced from her husband, Jake (Alec Baldwin) for ten years and feels as though she has finally got her life sorted out with the perfect house and perfect career for her. That is until a night …
