Watch it just for its cast
26 February 2010 | by barrys82See all my reviews

The name of the movie is It's Complicated but the film is everything but complicated, in fact this is the simplest and lightest movie I've seen in a very long time. It's Complicated follows the story of Jane (Streep) that during her son's graduation hooks up with her ex-husband Jake (Baldwin)and at the same time she is dating Adam, her architect. The movie has some good moments of humor but the situations tends to repeat over and over making the movie a little boring. The story is kinda predictable and the plot is a bit lame and corny but the movie is worthy because of its cast. Actors like Alec Baldwin and Steve Maritn and an actress like Meryl Streep make it a real joy. Their performances are excellent and so funny. In conclusion, It's complicated is a movie mostly intended for people over 30's and 40's. Women will love it and men will enjoy it also
