It's Complicated

3

Sophisticated screwball comedy

Sophisticated and bawdy, Nancy Meyers’ wrinklecom is part French farce, part golden-age screwball comedy, albeit with less sass and more sag.

The concept is king, as Meryl Streep’s self-contained spinster starts an affair with self-satisfied ex-husband Alec Baldwin.

Fizzy chemistry, Steve Martin in support and Meryl gasping “I like… a lot… of semen,” make this worth it though the direction’s MOR, the laughs wheezy.

Adequate extras.
