It's Complicated

It's Complicated was great! It is one of the movies that you can almost predict before even walking into the theatre, but let's be honest I don't pay $10 to test my mystery solving skills. With an A list cast, it was hard not to love and laugh throughout the entire movie.

This is a story about a divorced couple that seem to rekindle under old memories and lust, even after four children and ten years of being apart. Once realizing their mutual feelings, they decide to see where it will lead them. After secret encounters and weekend rendezvous, they are forced to figure out what everything really means.

Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin are hysterical playing the divorcee's. Baldwins quirky humor and crude timing somehow reminds me of my Dad and brought me to tears laughing in the theatre. Streep has never looked better nor been more comedic than her role in this movie. Steve Martin did a believable job as a nerdy architect, who pursued Streep's character with originality. John Krasinski was funny as the son in law who unfortunately was always in the wrong place at the wrong time.

All in all it was a great movie with a lot of character in it. I will however warn you that it is rated R for a reason.
