365 Movies: It's Complicated Review

It's Complicated stars Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, and John Krasinski in this 2009 film. 10 years after their divorce, Jane(Streep) and Jake(Baldwin) rekindle their romance again, but only this time, he's married to someone else. Feeling guilty about her affair with her ex-husband, Jane goes back and forth, on whether to continue with the affair or not. Jake, on the other is enjoying every moment of their rekindled affair, and he won't stop at anything, to have it continue. There three grown children know nothing about it, but they are still reeling over the divorce, that affected them, when they were kids. Jane's architect and newfound friend, Adam(Martin) immediately connects with Jane, but with Jake still in her life, he is often pushed to the side. It's super funny and had me laughing so much. I watched it with my Mom, who loved it as well. I thought that Alec was about the funniest thing in this movie. He was so hysterical and witty! Meryl was absolutely brilliant and fun too! Even though, I prefer seeing John with a leading role, I thought he was a gem in this movie as well. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this newer film!
