52 Films by Women #5 It’s Complicated…

Hiya…

Watched this one a few days ago.  It’s fun… but didn’t blow my socks off.  I sort of HATE saying that… but true be true.
Written and directed by Nancy Meyers and found on NetFlix.

It’s a romantic comedy, with some lovely moments, but it just didn’t… thrill.

I kept finding myself asking why on earth the Merle Streep character would add on to her already insits_complicated_movie_posteranely fabulous house when she was moving into the time when all her kids were GONE.  And her kitchen looked mighty good to me already.

Heh heh.

Here’s a link to Roger Ebert’s review: It’s Complicated

He notes that Meyer’s also gave us “Something’s Gotta Give” (2003), “What Women Want” (2000) and “The Holiday” (2006).  I haven’t seen “The Holiday” but I quite like the other two.

Fun, light, entertainment.

That ain’t awful.

Have a great weekend, all.

Go easy ~p
