Well, I'm still not sure why this movie is called "Prime." But regardless of its title, it's an enjoyable, intelligent romantic comedy that has its share of drama, too.

If anyone is in their 'prime' it is Meryl Streep who just keeps getting better

The laughs in 'Prime' keep coming, as do hopes for someone to have a happy ending.

Younger is correct that considerations such as age, religion and circumstance can be enough to keep people from simply loving each other. And he's able to wring decent comedy from a sad reality.

The writing and direction by Ben Younger is crisp and insightful enough to prevail, and the performances are all very good.

Prime is an amiable but woefully predictable clunky comedy in search for refreshing wackiness spearheaded by its May/December kissy-poo combatants.

Prime sometimes feel as if the movie itself hasn't fully formed or matured. Ironic, yes, so it's nice that it has Streep and Thurman to pull you through.

It's the sort of film that begs for the chapter select feature in DVDs. In a theater, this option is sadly unavailable.

feels a bit gimmicky at times, but it succeeds because it's filled with likeable characters, solid acting and some all too painfully funny moments of humanity

...hack work done by talented people rather than hack work done by hacks.

[L]ike what would happen if CBS gave Woody Allen a slot on Monday nights at 9:30: Oops, I Accidentally Screwed My Neurotic Jewish Therapist's Overmothered Son.
October 30, 2005
Director and cast are smart enough to not shy away from a romantic comedy that can only end, if not badly, then at least in the melancholy tears of lessons hard won.

it quickly becomes a one-note joke with exactly the same punch line every five or ten minutes

All the characters are likeable and flawed (just like the genial film).

The only real saving grace in the movie -- to the extent that it has one -- is Streep, whose scenes with Thurman zing with a breezy, passive-aggressive delight.

This a prime example of a movie that you adore big sections of, but it doesn't all work together.

Prime is a somewhat enjoyable look at a budding, albeit complicated, romance. But it tends to take itself a tad too seriously.

Follows a familiar boy-meets-girl scenario, but Younger turns the routine into combustible fun.

Younger ... has no evident flair for comedy.
