Movie Review: It’s Complicated (2010)

Jane is the mother of three grown kids, owns a thriving Santa Barbara bakery/restaurant and has – after a decade of divorce – an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake. But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son’s college graduation, things start to get complicated. An innocent meal together turns into the unimaginable – an affair. With Jake remarried to the much younger Agness, Jane is now, of all things, the other woman. Caught in the middle of their renewed romance is Adam, an architect hired to remodel Jane’s kitchen. Healing from a divorce of his own, Adam starts to fall for Jane, but soon realizes he’s become part of a love triangle. Should Jane and Jake move on with their lives, or is love truly lovelier the second time around? It’s–complicated. Release Date: December 25th, 2009

Starring: Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, John Krasinski, Lake Bell

My Review:

Well I was pleasantly surprised. I was a bit afraid the movie would not be something I’d like since it involves a romance between older adults kind of like “Somethings gotta give”. The movie kept going back and forth making you think the movie was going one way but then 2 minutes later it went a different direction. This happened about 3 or 4 times but it kept you watching and it made the movie more realistic and also didn’t allow you to predict the ending. The film was also pretty funny too, but of course when you have Steve Martin in it and Sheryl and Alec just added to the twist. I know my mother would love it but being someone in my mid 20’s, I really like it too. I would recommend it to pretty much anyone
