Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin star as Jane and Jake Adler, a happily divorced couple who rekindle their romance one night at their son’s college graduation. The film follows these two as they continue their affair and try to hide it from his wife, her potential new beau (Steve Martin) and their three kids.
“It’s Complicated” is written and directed by Nancy Meyers. If you have seen any of her other films, “The Holiday” or “Something’s Gotta Give” for example, you pretty much know where this standard “rom-com” is going to go before you buy the tickets. It’s not so much complicated as it is predictable.
That being said, “It’s Complicated” is a sweet, good-hearted movie with some genuine laughs that your mom will love. Streep and Baldwin are fantastic, as always, and do their best with a mediocre story.
