The movie won't take you to the top of the mountain or leave you with memories and references for discussion, but you won't be bored if you see it. Without compromising my standards, I can give this film an unqualified plus.

It's [writer/director Nancy Meyers'] typical, though smart, romantic comedy for a more mature audience. But, unlike Something's Gotta Give, there are no Oprah-like a-ha moments, which made it really quite unspecial and fall sorta flat.

It's really not all that complicated. But it is entertaining. It's pure, simple fun, with Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin playing Doris Day and Rock Hudson as they might have been if they had ruled in the sexually knowing oughts, instead of the virginal ear

Soft, warm, doughy comfort food it was no doubt intended to be. The screenplay is jovial; the actors twinkle and Mamma Mia! fans should love it.

A refined, balanced and eminently funny film, featuring three sublime performances from its incredibly talented leads.

Like all Meyers' films, it's more about interior design porn than real human emotions and drags on for far too long. Still, Streep, Krasinski and Baldwin are so good, they almost make it work. Almost.

Streep is as enjoyable as ever, and if laughs count for anything, this is one of the better romantic comedies of the season.

It's Complicated is the kind of wholesome adult-oriented entertainment that once formed the bedrock of classical Hollywood.
January 8, 2010
For me, Meyers's romcoms have been unwatchable because of the utter fakeness of their leading players: but I must confess, Baldwin and Streep do have that most over-analysed thing, "chemistry."

No one's calling it great art. But as an indulgent confection, it's more filling and less embarrassing than we had any right to expect.

It may not be the saviour of romantic comedies, but this is an enjoyable film with great leads and comic chops. Complicated? Not really, but it is a laugh.
January 8, 2010
It's Complicated is another Streepshow, like Mamma Mia, that illustrates the power and willingness of Hollywood's best actress to slough inhibitions like Salome's veils.
January 8, 2010
On it drags, simpering the while over the lavish accoutrements of upper-middle-class life as though they contained the key to all happiness - which, in Meyers's worldview, they probably do.
January 8, 2010
A slice of pure Hollywood hokum overstaying its welcome by at least 15 long minutes.

This is escapist fluff, pure and simple, but it's given a huge boost by some deliciously funny scripting from writer-director Nancy Meyers and a trio of ace lead performances.

I can't say Meyers completely won me over, the blatant superficially of most of this rubbing me the wrong way.

[Meyers has] given us her thinnest slice of comic relationship angst yet, proving, I guess, that you actually can be too thin.
