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

All Critics (185) | Top Critics (49)

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

  • Some films are a cold shower, others a warm bath. Enough Said is mainly a warm bath but bracing morality gives the romantic comedy an anchor in common relationship reality.

    Oct 17, 2013 | Rating: 3/5
  • 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.

    Cute. I loved the relationship between the two.

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

    A shopworn method of modern love played out in a slightly older storefront, the cute but hardly cutting edge Enough Said boasts an ace cast navigating the ups and downs of middle age dating. Thankfully, character steps to the forefront more than romance, which grounds the story and connects the audience all the more. Awkward and explosive, comfortable and fuzzy, the script puts the 50+ year-old leads through paces familiar to anybody who's ever gambled on love. Specifically skewing older, Enough Said's demographic - like the setting in particularly atmospheric flicks - BECOMES the story as well as drives it. Were it designed around younger prettier actors, the end effect would prove something short of unremarkable, another PYT rom-com in an endless parade of PYT rom-coms...or rom-coma for lack of a better phrase. Still, the whole he-meets-shebang needs more standalone pizzaz than a twist practically given away in the 1st act. Being Over-the-Hill divorcees doesn't equal out-and-out magic, but it does yield a charming sleight of hand. In this PG-13-rated dramedy, a divorced woman (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) who decides to pursue the man she's interested in (James Gandolfini) learns he's her new friend's ex-husband. Enough Said's bent works as well as it does because writer/director Nicole Holofcener (Friends with Money) demonstrates such a finely tuned ear for witty truth-ringing dialogue. Delivered by always on-point comedienne Julia-Louis Dreyfus and sometime comedian James Ganfolfini, the back and forth evinces such an authentic lived-in ebb and flow that it raises the material a star. Bottom line: Just Enough

    Enough said is a charming little movie. Dreyfus and Gandolfini have good chemistry. The other members are top flight actors that help move things along. They seem natural developing their characters. Enough Said is on a movie channel right now. Totally worth going through the trouble of searching it out on your DVR (that's sarcasm).
