Very lightweight and disappointing...
I enjoyed this movie as it had a fun twist.
Pretty light hearted chick flick. Had some funny points - my hubby wouldn't have sat through this one though.
Not able to sit though more than half an hour of this. Slow storyline and poor acting by male lead.
Abit light for substance, but watchable
Enjoyable movie with some good humour. Merly Streep is a pro!
Ordinary.... Yet another, boring, predicatble pedestrian effort from the Americans!
Even the wife HATED this one!
the movie was not too bad but i was a bit disappointed. I did not like Uma Thurman on this movie. She was a cradle snatcher.
I enjoyed this movie. Not usually into comedy movies but got a few chuckles out of this one.
Merryl Streep is fabulous.
Snore. Despite the great line up of actor this movie is truly terrible. Don't waste your time.
Entertaining and light hearted.
I thought this film was ok, manly because Meryl is so good an actress and Uma is so lovely to look at.
light hearted and a little off the beaten track for your typical romantic comedy. ie njoyed it the second time round as much as the first. love the underlying question of society - we tell people to do what makes them happy because we usually don't personally experience any of the negative consequences for such hedonistic behaviour do we!!
A sweet love story that I wished had worked out for the two of them in the end because they seemed to be so much in love.
Quite funny in places with good performances from Uma Thurman
I guess a 14 year age gap could lead to problems for some, but until Rafi mentioned it I didn't even notice there was one. A real pity because they seemed to be so in love and I would have liked to have seen them make it work. A believeable love story, except for David being the son of Rafi's therapist. That was a bit far-fetched.
I agree Kim S. For some reason I thought this was a comedy too, and Quickflix renters need to know it's not!! It is however a polite, communicative drama with next to no swearing and a bland NY flavoured soundtrack. Storyline was interesting enough. Meryl Streep provides the only laughs.
not quite the happy ending but a good watch
watchable enough, worth a look
Not bad, quite funny and also very thoughtful at times. The end was very unusual. Worth a watch!
quirky, not too bad fairly romantic comedy.
Not a bad movie, but not one that I would watch again....it just kind of meandered along and then ended quite abruptly.
This had it's moments but overall not that interesting. I think the age gap and religious difference is meant to be contraversial - but really, yawn. Watching a glamour couple go through their emotional roller coaster, not that enthralling. Pity they didn't built on some of the punchier moments!
Was an ok movie and ms streep was great as always. My husband was dreading it thinking it just another romantic comedy, but he liked it in the end.
Had an interesting twist at the end.
The movie was quite good. But it had what I call an unneccesary ending.
This is worth seeing for Meryl Streep's performance - it's priceless.A great premise and a lot of fun
Refreshing editing and a style of directing that highlighted nice personal aspects of life made this comedy pitched drama pleasant to watch. An ending aligned with contemporary western discourse will also stimulate a wide market. Streep was outstanding.
Loved this movie, Meryl Streep is fantastic. Worth watching, very funny.
A romantic comedy with a difference - the characters are believable!
I think the best part of this movie is the way that the characters were treated throughout - the funny scenes weren't forced and the decisions and mistakes made had a wonderful ring of truth to them.
Add to that that it didn't follow the tried and (not so) true Hollywood Romantic Comedy Ingredients and you have a refreshingly witty movie.
This movie was totally not what I expected. It wasn't your normal romantic comedy; I thought it would be way funnier. It's worth watching for its different style, but don't expect a heart-warming romantic comedy - you will be disappointed.
I enjoyed this movie, even watched it twice. Meryl S. was a bit over the top, but still enjoyable.
Enjoyable, loved Meryl Streep's performance!
If you have nothing else to do then watch it, otherwise don't bother, the whole movie doesn't go anywhere.
I really enjoyed this. Uma and Meryl give amazing performances and there is something for everyone. Not strictly a "chick flick" by any means.
Only good about this movie was the cream pies
another great girl's movie - uma thurman is great
Witty, charming , easy to watch...and thought provoking( younger men?)....
Lacked substance, found it dragged and I didn't like the ending.
I enjoyed this film.
The dialogue was carefully considered and the acting decent.
Meryl Streep is wonderful, as always! Uma Thurman was very believable in this role as it was after her break-up with Ethan Hawke. A believable story because it doesn't end as 'happy ever after' but more realistic. Great acting and very funny!
a movie for the romantics
I found this movie difficult to follow in parts, and quite boring. Whilst the concept was ok, the script-writing was a bit dull. Meryl Streep, however played her character well, but all in all a very unexciting film!
Really funny and entertaining.
Good light hearted comedy. I really enjoyed this easy to watch movie
A pleasant surpise! I really enjoyed this movie - a lot better then I was expecting.
No imagination used when deciding on the plot to this film. Meryl Streep plays a middle aged neurotic, closed minded zeolot to her faith who happens to have a patient (Uma Thurman) that falls in love with her son....who's NOT of Meryl's faith. Son has sex, Uma looks like a randy skinny woman trying her best to not act her age, and Meryl does one of her worst jobs yet portraying her faith in a very unflattering light. Don't bother viewing this one, instead go outside and watch the grass grow!!
This is an excellent movie. Had a lot of laughs.
Enjoyable movie but a bit slow in places but also had a few funny parts.
Uma Thurman was great. Had some funny and also touching moments. Worth watching, but only once.
The thin premise of this film was not enough to sustain interest after the first 20 minutes or so. Before the "secret" is revealed there are one or two mildly amusing exchanges between and Uma. But once the cat is out of the bag the events unfold with a weary inevitability.
Starts well but the thin premise does not provide enough laughs to go the distance. About 1/3 the plot plumments towards sentimentality and events unfold with a weary inevitability.
Great acting by Meryl Streep and Uma Thurman as one would expect but the storyline was an average typical romantic comedy with a few laughs, but not very impressive entertainment.
One of the best movies I have seen in a while and an unpredictable ending - very refreshing!
Meryl Streep at her best in this romantic comedy. I enjoyed her performance.
Very different, wasn't really going anywhere..
predictable but entertaining
For some reason I was sure this was a romantic comedy. That is before I actually watched it. It is definitely no comedy. I have no problem with drama but how about some character development or a decent storyline. By the end of the movie I felt like I wasted an hour & 40 minutes of my time. Very disappointing!
Good chemistry between the two leads. Some very funny bits with Streep and Thurman. Good light hearted romantic comedy.
I was extremely disappointed with the way that this amazing cast was given such a terrible screenplay. I really expected a lot more!
Not a bad movie. At least it's not your typical american ending!
