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

Not quite a romantic comedy, Prime is a hybrid of conflicting tones.

No movie could survive the dotty premise of this hyperchipper romantic comedy about an age-inappropriate affair -- he's 23, she's 37, and we're supposed to buy this as a May-December love story?
October 19, 2005
A minor romantic comedy with a pseudo-indie feel.

If Younger truly wanted to work out some fantasies on the big screen, Prime is the dullest, most unimaginative way he could've achieved that goal.

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

...resorts to repeating the same lines with only slightly minor variations for what seems like an eternity but in fact is actually only one hour and 45 minutes.

A go nowhere do nothing movie.

October 28, 2005
A movie as weirdly titled as it is constructed, the romantic comedy Prime is proof that even the great Meryl Streep occasionally slips up in her acting choices.

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

It's as if making the movie was a marathon for Younger, and he ran out of steam 2/3rds of the way through.

A romantic comedy that's merely half a good movie.

A mishmash of a movie about a May-December romantic relationship set in New York City.

[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 31, 2005
It's the sort of film that begs for the chapter select feature in DVDs. In a theater, this option is sadly unavailable.

Brazenly preposterous.

Writer-director Ben Younger wants to be Woody Allen in the worst way. Unfortunately, he's gone about it in the worst way.

Offers a few laughs, enough formula to fill a bathtub, and Meryl Streep, who is always enjoyable to watch, even if the movie around her isn't.
