A must see film.. if you want a laugh.

It's Complicated
Starring: Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin

Ok.... so It's Complicated has been out for a few weeks but I eventually got to see Meryl Streep's latest offering just last night.
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 take an unexpected turn. 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.
Meryl Streep is at her comic best

It's been a while since there has been a laugh out loud romantic comedy, the cinema was shaking with laughter.
I'm happy to hold my hands up on this one, it was great.
A real must see especially if you are over 45yrs old... you will relate to so much of it....... male or female.

Hi Laurie,
I too saw, It's Complicated, and loved it. I laughed a lot. It is so real to life. And we must laugh.
