5 Sentence Review: It's Complicated

I liked it a lot more than I thought it would.

Nancy Meyers is a very typical filmmaker, both in her writing and her style with filming conversations and actors.

The casting elevates the film, with John Krasinski especially making an enduring mark.

It's not a great film, or a particularly memorable film, but it takes romantic comedy from a slightly different angle that occasionally feels surprisingly fun.

Much as bromance subverts the formula with two guys being in a relationship, so does this transplant the "affair comedy" to a cast of older people.
