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 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

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.

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."

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.

A slice of pure Hollywood hokum overstaying its welcome by at least 15 long minutes.

[Meyers has] given us her thinnest slice of comic relationship angst yet, proving, I guess, that you actually can be too thin.
December 28, 2009
Writer-director Meyers, who's devoted much of her career to midlife American arousal, that she loses her sense of fun.
December 28, 2009
Simply put, It's Complicated is a hoot.
December 28, 2009
Streep's dilemma is handled well enough for the movie to accumulate some gravitas as it nears the two-hour mark.
December 26, 2009
There are four reasons to see this movie and writer-director Nancy Meyers isn't one.

It's Complicated is basically Wild Hogs for smart people, big stars playing below their gifts in a crowd-pleasing movie.
December 25, 2009
It's Complicated unleashes an unabashedly, desperately romantic side of Baldwin that we haven't seen before. He doesn't steal this movie so much as grant all Streep's fluttering and twirling and hand-fanning an exuberant counterweight.

There's nothing inherently wrong with a little fantasy; indeed, a lot of us like gazing at lavishly set tables and meticulously chosen throw pillows. But It's Complicated suffers from terminal niceness.
December 25, 2009
Actually, Hollywood, it's very simple: If you're lucky enough to rope pros like Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin into a formulaic comedy that's clearly beneath them, you rise to the occasion.
December 25, 2009
The romantic comedy about a divorced couple having an affair manages to be both light on its feet and heavy enough to deliver something of a message.
December 25, 2009
I enjoyed the spectacle of middle-aged people making spectacles of themselves. And I appreciated the film's gentle understanding of how the romance of a parent affects the children.
