Like most relationship films it has a tendency to self-indulgence. Prime is less about relationships than it is about life lessons - a funny, bittersweet one; but that is unfortunately what a lot of relationships turn out to be.

"Prime" is an above average romantic comedy that still doesn't quite make the grade.

Ironically, this therapeutic romantic comedy ultimately suffers from too many unexplored issues.

Meryl Streep brilla en esta comedia romántica graciosa y disfrutable sobre el amor, los prejuicios, y otras costumbres muy humanas.

Though it's derivative and it doesn't all hang together, it's still better and smarter than the average romantic comedy -- give me Ben Younger over Nora Ephron any day.

You'd get/give a second date after this one. Probably.

[Prime is] an enjoyable romcom, it's sharply observed and has some interesting things to say about relationships. Worth seeing.

...mature and surprisingly thoughtful...

All of "Prime" is ripe for the kind of discovery that comes with seeing it on a video store shelf after either passing it a few times or not finding what you wanted the first time.

December 12, 2005
A solid romantic comedy that benefits from its ambition to look at the importance of age and religious differences, even if it could have gone deeper.

It's pretentiously clever premise executed in a very conventional, and ultimately dull manner, Prime is an intended heartbreaker that in execution is an extended flatline.

Never really rises above comedic fluff, no matter how introspective or bittersweet it becomes.

The highlight of this complex love story is the moment when Meryl Streep's conservative therapist realises that the intimate details her vulnerable patient (Uma Thurman) is sharing with her, are actually about her own son.

The odd thing about Prime is that the film is so neatly constructed and the story so engaging, I have little to say besides please go see it.

...boasts a strong cast, but sticks it in too many contrived sitcom scenarios that detract from much of the emotional impact.

Abrahams and Streep simply steal a movie dominated by two less interesting characters.
