Date Movie Of The Week – It’s Complicated

January 15, 2010

From Google, we found this movie outline:

Jane is the mother of three grown kids, owns a thriving Santa Barbara bakery/restaurant and has — after a decade of divorce — an amicable relationship with her ex-husband, attorney Jake. But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son’s college graduation, things start to get complicated. An innocent meal together turns into the unimaginable — an affair. With Jake remarried to the much younger Agness, Jane is now, of all things, the other woman. Caught in the middle of their renewed romance is Adam, an architect hired to remodel Jane’s kitchen. Healing from a divorce of his own, Adam starts to fall for Jane, but soon realizes he’s become part of a love triangle. Should Jane and Jake move on with their lives, or is love truly lovelier the second time around? It’s — complicated.

From the looks of this, it’s a very generic romantic comedy.  If you’re going to be taking a date on a generic evening, based on what we are reading here, this movie should fit your theme. It’s funny, lite, complicated but also simple, and has a great cast. We are looking forward to seeing Baldwin and Martin host the Oscars this year, and are fans of their work.

Rotten Tomatoes gave it 56%. Palo Alto Online gave it 3 out of 5 stars. Rolling Stone gave it 3.5 out of 5 stars.
