ReviewSource ReelViews
Review For Nancy Meyers, whose Hollywood career began with screenplay and producer credits for Private Benjamin and whose first stint behind the director's chair occurred in 1998 with the Lindsay Lohan remake of The Parent Trap (back when Lohan was still a rising child star and not a tabloid sensation), It's Complicated illustrates how far she has come. Able to call her own shots and attract the best talent available in Hollywood, she has crafted a motion picture that does justice to both aspects of the "romantic comedy" genre. With a story that by turns defies and adheres to formulas, It's Complicated ends up being one of the end-year's best sources of pure entertainment. And for those who believe laughter is the best medicine, there's more than a bellyful or two to be found here...For the most part, It's Complicated is smartly written. One could argue the people are a little too self-aware, but that quality doesn't bother me - these are movie characters, not my next-door neighbors. That's not to say there aren't problems. The three adult children are arguably too well-adjusted for kids who grew up in the shadow of the massive dysfunction of their parents' marriage. The scenes between Jane and her female friends (played by repeat offenders like Mary Kay Place and Rita Wilson) contain cringe-inducing dialogue. It's as if Meyers invited Nora Ephron (circa 2009, not back when she was writing clever stuff like When Harry Met Sally) on board to scribe these scenes. They are trite and damage the film's smooth flow. The best thing about them is that there are only two, and neither lasts inordinately long...It's Complicated represents Meyers' most accomplished work to-date, and is a substantial upgrade over The Holiday. (To be fair, that movie imploded in part because of the grotesque miscasting of Jack Black as Kate Winslet's love interest.) Meyers unapologetically writes from a woman's point-of-view, and that quality makes her movies refreshing. She doesn't provide the same warmed-over clich?s that dominate male-fashioned movies of this sort. It's Complicated isn't perfect and the ending may be a little low-key for some to appreciate, but it provides as engaging a two hour period as Meyers has ever been responsible for, and is a tonic for those weighed down by the seriousness of "important" would-be Oscar contenders.
