The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Movie -

It’s Com­pli­cated isn’t very com­pli­cated at all, re­ally – a fairly typ­i­cal ro­man­tic com­edy aimed at baby-boomers, writ­ten and di­rected by Nancy Mey­ers. It is saved from dis­ap­pear­ing into the mush of dozens of sim­i­lar movies by its out­stand­ing cast, led by Meryl Streep.

Jane ( Streep) is 10 years di­vorced from Jake (a won­der­fully over the top Alec Bald­win), who left her for a younger woman. Then she meets Adam (an un­der­stated Steve Martin), a sen­si­tive ar­chi­tect who wants to do more than re­design her kitchen. Then she sud­denly finds her­self in the sack with Jake again.

Well, it’s kind of com­pli­cated.
