What to know

critics consensus

Despite fine work by an appealing cast, It's Complicated is predictable romantic comedy fare, going for broad laughs instead of subtlety and nuance. Read critic reviews

    Although the whole things seemed a little lightweight for these talents I liked the fact that there was no villain of the piece and that each character has their flaws and good sides. The film takes a while to get going but the relationship between Streep and Baldwin works really well and Martin (although looking very odd from some obvious recent surgery) underplays his role and is all the better for it.

    Moderately amusing comedy that is nevertheless overwritten (no one here talks luke real people) and too slick, and misses a trick in giving Lake Bell so little to work with - more depth to her character would have been welcome. It's also overlong and beneath the SATC-esque puns on Virginia rejuvenation and pot smoking, it's attitude to gender roles is very early 20th century. Meryl Streep and, surprisingly, Steve Martin, do good work.

    Not really funny, but was a good movie and I love Alec Baldwin

    Yes the general plotline is predictable but the brilliant performances from Baldwin, Martin and Streep overshadow all that. The most enjoyable romantic comedy I've seen in a while.
