Jane (Meryl Streep) 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 (Alec Baldwin). But when Jane and Jake find themselves out of town for their son's college graduation, things start to get complicated. An innocent meal together turns into the unimaginable—an affair. With Jake remarried to the much younger Agness (Lake Bell), Jane is now, of all things, the other woman.

Caught in the middle of their renewed romance is Adam (Steve Martin), 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.

Should Jane and Jake move on with their lives, or is love truly lovelier the second time around? It's... complicated.

  • 5 stars "It is the most fun movie I've watched in a long time. Great script, actors, with a steady surprise around every corner. Totally awesome! My husband and I have watched it several times and cannot get enough. Way to go!"
  • 5 stars "Loved it! One of the best comedies I have seen in years. It's full of witty one liners and a few good ole belly laughs. Definitely worth seeing!"
  • 2 stars "So I technically didnt see the last 15 minutes of this but I figure my review is still fair. I didnt find any of the three leads particularly funny. The only one who I actually found hilarious was John Krasinski. Besides him the movie was rather boring and just...not that entertaining. What did this movie teach me? Some actors should not do comedy."
