1.0 out of 5 stars Absolute Rubbish, 9 Sept. 2010
This review is from: It's Complicated [DVD] (2009) (DVD)
I saw this film recently and I have to agree with the other "negative" reviews.
I found in the first hour and a half that I was continually looking at my watch wondering how much longer I had to endure it - it is absolute rubbish !
I know films are subjective, but I am amazed that anyone liked it !
As another reviewer said, it could have been told in half an hour and even that would have been too much. In fact it would have been better if it wasn't told at all !
It was supposed to be a comedy, but there were very few incidents in it to raise a smile let alone a laugh ! It was so contrived and predictable !
The story-line is also feeble and none of the characters amount to much at all.
We are supposed to believe that the Meryl Streep character is suddenly re-attracted to her ex-husband (a gross, middle-aged, over-weight, hairy, sweaty and ugly individual) and once again falls for his corny lines of wanting a reconcilliation etc.
With her newly found independence and maturity it is a most unlikely scenario.
None of the characters in the film are remotely likeable, with the exception of the Steve Martin character perhaps. Even the kids are obnoxious!
I think you would have to be a pretty shallow individual to like this film at all.
The film is corny, unfunny, stupid, crude at times and totally boring !

Do yourself a favour and give it a miss - you'll be the better for it !
