Movie Review: It's Complicated

Plot: When brought together at a family event, two exes find themselves oddly attracted to each other after ten years of divorce. Although the couple think that this affair will stay in a different state, it brings itself back to ther own city and disrupts their personal lives. While the couple still maintains other romances, they cannot help but continue with their affair.

Review:Nancy Meyers did a wonderful job in writing up this story and directing it. If it's Nancy Meyers,it's sure that the comedy's good. I expected this kind of comedy from her since Something's Gotta Give, The Holiday, and The Father of the Bride movies. Intelligent humor in a mature way. Like in the movies I mentioned, the main characters are either they're in a marriage relationship or they're above forty. The conflict of the movie is the most interesting part. The audience will not help but laugh. I have no problem in the casting. Meryl Streep is sure right for the role. She can still project herself sexy in her age. Alec Baldwin proved himself fit for comedy because of his 30 Rock series. Steve Martin may not be the main character like in the Father of the Bride movies, but his performance as the third wheel of the conflict and his comedy was still good and essential for his role of the movie. The conflict was also coping up with the divorce. There are also damages. I can relate to the children who are already trying to cope up with it and was shocked more to find that their parents are secretly together. I would not be fine if I find out my parents got back together after many years. I've been noticing in internet social networks that there are people who has written their social status as "It's Complicated.I was wondering what's complicated there. Maybe after watching this movie, maybe people should think first before writing their social status as complicated.
