Film: It's Complicated
Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin play a divorced couple who hit it off again at their son's graduation in this comedy.
Streep is excellent as the ageing single mother trying to get her life in order when she starts to have an affair with her ex husband.
Baldwin too is fantastic as the ex who is now married to the younger woman that he originally had an affair with while married to Streep.
Lots of laugh out loud moments as the oldies carry on like a pair of teenagers, even indulging in smoking pot.
Steve Martin shows up as the new man in Streep's life and he is ok but looks slightly odd from too much botox and something suspicious about his hair.
That aside this is surprisingly the first 2010 contender for film of the year. I expect it will be beaten as the year goes on but it'll be worthy of a top ten spot.
Rick's Rating: 87%
