If you've seen a commercial for It's Complicated, you know the story. A 60ish divorcee starts shagging her ex, who is remarried with a younger family. The story is a throw-away. It's Complicated is an excuse for Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin to appear in a movie together.
Their chemistry is great and director Nancy Meyer's deft chick-flick instincts are spot on. It's not going down in history as a great movie, but it's OK for a single viewing. I have one quibble, though. Streep's character finally got all the kids out of the house and decides to remodel. As a professional baker, she can finally get the kitchen she always wanted. However, her old kitchen is huge and well furnished. I would love to have her old kitchen. That part of the story was distracting. And the infidelity didn't quite work for me either, but it's just a movie.
