At times the film was draggy, and other times it seemed a little bit fluffy and cheesy, but that did NOT stop this movie from being great. Meryl, Tommy Lee Jones, and Steve Carell all give great performances. They are totally convincing in their roles, and their characters are super developed. The great thing about this movie is that you don't have to relate to one of the characters to understand what they are going through, because every single character is very complex and has a specific conflict. Some movies focus more on the plot, while others focus more on character development, but I felt that this film did very well at balancing the two. What I liked most about this movie, however, is how realistic it is. Not only is the theme realistic and relevant to countless people and couples around the world, but the actual story line that happens between Meryl and Tommy Lee could very well be based on real life. It isn't just a great idea for a movie that some writer came up with, but you see a lot of real life situations in this movie. I highly suggest it, mainly to a 30+ audience, but once again, you can be any age to see this movie and understand what the characters are going through.
