Eva (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is a divorced soon-to-be empty-nester wondering about her next act. Then she meets Marianne (Catherine Keener), the embodiment of her perfect self. Armed with a restored outlook on being middle-aged and single, Eva decides to take a chance on her new love interest Albert (James Gandolfini) - a sweet, funny and like-minded man. Things get complicated when Eva discovers that Albert is in fact the dreaded ex–husband of Marianne. This sharp insightful comedy follows Eva as she humorously tries to secretly juggle both relationships and wonders whether her new favorite friend's disastrous ex can be her cue for happiness.

They are both dominant performers and can even be forgiven for this film, which unfortunately didn't do anything for me, courtesy just for their fantastic work in 'Seinfeld' and 'The Sopranos' respectively.
On Blu-ray everything looks and sounds as good as you would expect of a modern release, but since it is a largely dialogue-based film which occurs mostly in buildings I don't necessarily think that it is essential to watch it in HD (but only the Blu-ray comes with a UV copy, which may sway it for fans).
If you read the Amazon synopsis for this film, whilst it gives a good idea about the overall theme and general direction of the story. you will also learn the one 'twist' (which the plot relies a lot on) so I recommend that you don't read it !
Instead, here is a truncated version before the beans are spilt :
"Eva (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) is a divorced soon-to-be empty-nester wondering about her next act. Then she meets Marianne (Catherine Keener), the embodiment of her perfect self. Armed with a restored outlook on being middle-aged and single, Eva decides to take a chance on her new love interest Albert (James Gandolfini) - a sweet, funny and like-minded man...."
For me, the specifics of the plot are largely unoriginal and not especially exciting, something which eventually comes across from the style of the film, the screenplay and performances - the best word I can think of is 'frothy'; what really should help make the film work is the notable cast, but for me it still wasn't enough, ESPECIALLY as I rumbled the aforementioned 'twist' before it was revealed....
I detected a certain trait for the film to try and get the viewer to emotionally attach themselves to one or both of the lead characters (as a romcom needs to do really !), but the 'attempts' were far too 'overt'. The lightweight plot, that predictable/'incredible' twist, the 'plodding' style to the direction and the use of music to try and steer us towards those sentiments made that fail.
I am not an anti-romcom film person, it's just that all the elements of the genre required to make it work were for me essentially absent in this movie - it was very disappointing and I almost couldn't finish watching it, so much was my lack of interest in how things developed (another crucial factor required for a romcom).
The film earned quite a lot of critical praise, made a profit at the box-office and earned several award nominations - so whilst I wasn't grabbed by it, there is clearly an audience for this film.
The lead characters ARE likeable, but since there isn't much of any 'weight ' to them, I found it difficult to not just think of their performances as that of Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini, rather than the actual characters (or even Elaine Benes and Tony Soprano !).
A good example I can give of how a romcom CAN work, despite the plot being quite basic is 'As Good As It Gets', which like this film also has a notable lead cast BUT, crucially, irrespective of the similar inclusion of over-sentimentality/'frothiness' they portray characters with FAR more personality, plus the dialogue has more insightful 'bite' to it.
The film style and elements I've outlined mean that I didn't think it needed any prominent disc extras - so, imagine my surprise (not !) when I state that the disc extras comprise a 'Gag Reel' and 5 x featurettes of the 'promotional' variety.
We all have different tastes, so for those not dissuaded by my review, I've attached a photo of the back of the disc box as it shows all the disc info and Amazon omits it.
So, whilst this film has a cast and plot outline that suggest a decent romcom is on the cards, for me sadly nothing positive came to fruition; I found it rather mundane, excessively 'frothy' and quickly thought that 'Enough Had Been Said'. Several other aspects that might be plus points for those who persevere are a good presentation, proficient direction/production-values but especially those proficient acting performances.....
This is not your typical Hollywood movie, but if you like the simplicity of a character driven, realistic story about love, and all its complications, then I'm sure you will enjoy this.
To avoid spoilers, let me just say that when Albert finds out that Eva has been talking to Marianne, it complicates the relationship. To the credit of the director, Nicole Holofcener, however, our interest isn't just in how these complications will be resolved but in what the movie shows about what love requires. To show this is the purpose of what seems like a sub-plot but is really central to the movie's effect: the coincidence that Eva and Albert (and their divorced spouses, of course,) have daughters who are getting prepared to leave home for college. Both Eva and Albert are full of typical parental worries about this, which, characteristically, Eva tend to verbalize much more openly than the low-key Albert. Both love their daughters, and as we see them negotiating their anxieties in their own ways and with their ex-spouses, we realize that loving is something that one doesn't have to have reasons for. We begin to realize that, in listening to Marianne, Eva was starting to look for reasons to love or not love Albert, not realizing that all of Marianne's "reasons" were after-the-fact rationalizations of what irritated her about Albert and had nothing to do with why she loved him and married him in the first place. Eva, without quite realizing it, begins to look for reasons to love -- when her love for her daughter should be telling her that she doesn't need them (and that looking for them might be destructive). Love sometimes fails, of course, and then one can articulate things one didn't like about one's spouse, AS IF these were the reasons for the failure. Eva's ex-husband is a perfectly nice man whom Eva doesn't run down as Marianne ran down Albert even though the marriage didn't work out. Both of them see their daughter off in what is perhaps the understated emotional climax of the movie, and it makes emotional sense that it is after that send-off that Eva and Albert meet again in an equally understated scene in which at least the possibility of understanding becomes open.
What's impressive about the movie, apart from the acting, is the way the scenes are disposed -- and secondary characters are disposed -- to make us understand that a kind of talking can be often the cause of a problem rather than a solution. Marianne isn't a bad person, and she isn't aware whom she's talking to -- she's just venting, and her venting is in the form of giving reasons, and reasons are seductive, as Eva learns to her cost. "Enough said" is a great title. Problems arise when too much is said, and perhaps Eva's friends and confidants, the couple played by Toni Collette and Ben Falcone, are other examples of too much being said. Unlike Marianne, though, they know whom they are talking to, and the result isn't pleasant.
