Something Gave 11.01.2010

Be grateful it wasn't another Pink Panther movie.

Movie: It’s Complicated (2009)
Plot: Witty future son-in-law (John Krasinski) fights to save the sanity of his upper crusty in-laws, who are divorced but sleeping together, so that he can still marry into a happily affluent family.
IMHO: Ah, the lives of the spoiled rich. So much fun to watch (see any Jane Austen pic). Their kitchens are amazing but well all know they just have to be BIGGER. In this misfired wet dream for increasingly-decrepit-yet-still-infantile baby boomers, an accentless Meryl Streep and Ab-rollerless Alec Baldwin (legal guardian of Stephen Baldwin), play a divorced couple who reignite that old feeling—even though he’s remarried to a trophy wife. What tragedy! Some cute jokes, and even some minor pathos, but all the kids in this movie are jerks, and Steve Martin unfortunately is not. Props, though, for not having any blatantly token African-American or ethnic friends.
Compared to the great Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, this movie is a dead planet.
If Leonard Nimoy had directed it, it would be pretty much the same exact movie, sadly.
If Scotty had seen the movie with me, he’d na have gotten up to help if the projector malfunctioned.
SPOILER: It’s really not that complicated.
I give this movie: 1.95 Nomads out of 5
