Enough Said (2013)



Critic Consensus: Wryly charming, impeccably acted, and ultimately quite bittersweet, Enough Said is a grown-up movie in the best possible way.

Movie Info

A divorced and single parent, Eva (Julia Louis Dreyfus) spends her days enjoying work as a masseuse but dreading her daughter's impending departure for college. She meets Albert (James Gandolfini) - a sweet, funny and like-minded man also facing an empty nest. As their romance quickly blossoms, Eva befriends Marianne (Catherine Keener), her new massage client. Marianne is a beautiful poet who seems "almost perfect" except for one prominent quality: she rags on her ex-husband way too much. Suddenly, Eva finds herself doubting her own relationship with Albert as she learns the truth about Marianne's Ex. ENOUGH SAID is a sharp, insightful comedy that humorously explores the mess that often comes with getting involved again. (c) Fox Searchlightmore

All Critics (165) | Top Critics (44)

These are the subjects that Holofcener does exceptionally well -- the myopia, vanity and insecurities of the moderately privileged.

It's a wonderful movie-funny, sad and wise about the crazy ways we torment ourselves in this thing called love.

The Improper Bostonian

A slate of great performances cap off a compelling look at the way we build up and destroy the very relationships we want to engage in.

Cinema Sight

How it all plays out, even without the unexpected layer of wistful Gandolfini remembrance, is sad and funny at the same time.

SF Weekly

Dreyfus and Gandolfini generate chemistry aplenty!

Baret News

How the two deal with this situation is the crux of the story and the reactions are quite real and believable.

Audience Reviews for Enough Said


Enough Said is a non-Hollywood type of story. The actors are older and physically not movie-star perfect, and the script is believable.

Much better than expected. Would probably appeal most to a 40 plus audience. I say that because I think a younger audience possibly wouldn't have the life experience to really "get" this time of life and possibly find this a bit boring.
It wasn't all relatable to myself either, for example, going through empty nest syndrome, but I still found this really convincing and it felt very true to life in the situations.
Nice story about finding love again and accepting others and their faults. Quite talky.

Most of the attention drawn to this film concerns the fact that this is one of James Gandolfini's last roles. That being said, the film itself is very enjoyable. It's a light comedy about a mom that can't let go of her kid, doesn't want to make the same mistakes she made in her first marriage, and fears the future. It starts very charming, showing the character's sweetness and allure, but the film swan dives into a tense romantic drama near the end. This change is sudden and very awkward, which in turn deviates from the charming beginning, and we lose a lot of respect for Julia Louis-Dreyfus' character. She becomes judgmental, close-minded, and really rude, and though I know most of this is due to insecurity and fear, it really doesn't excuse her actions. I suppose what really bothers me is that I have no empathy for people in a relationship who act mean just to act mean. This film is good for middle aged single people or mothers who understand the complexities of these issues, but this film only left me a little angry and depressed, which I don't believe was the intention.
