Enough Said

Critics 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 Searchlight

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

  • As Etta James might say: at last. A romantic comedy that is romantic and funny and not simply an insult to the intelligence of all carbon-based life forms.

  • Enough Said is Nicole Holofcener's best yet - it's what we wanted from the new Bridget Jones book, a smart comedy about dating in your 50s.

  • Enough Said is a romantic comedy about hurting the people you love, who you want to love - and making mistakes that may be impossible to recover from.

  • In the terse space film provides, Holofcener capturing her characters deftly. We know their fears, needs, lonesomeness. We trust the cars they drive, the food they eat, the rooms they keep tidy, or not.

    Sep 27, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • What a concept -- an adult romantic comedy that's equally wise and playful, with mold-breaking performances by James Gandolfini and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Audience Reviews for Enough Said

½

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. Enjoyable.

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.
