Synopsis Nancy Meyers directs this romantic comedy that stars Oscar-winner Meryl Streep as a woman torn between an architect (Steve Martin) and her philandering ex-husband (Alec Baldwin). IT’S COMPLICATED also features the comic prowess of John Krasinski, Lake Bell, Rita Wilson, and Mary Kay Place.Streep plays an icon of an accomplished, radiant woman....Baldwin draws on his bank account of viewer love for his brilliant work on NBC's 30 ROCK to play a rich, assertive lawyer... -- Grade: B-4 stars out of 5 -- [A] smart, sophisticated and downright hilarious comedy. Movies don't get any funnier than this -- at least the ones made for thinking adults.There's funny stuff here. We like everybody.Ms. Streep, mugging wildly if winningly, takes this character and makes you love her, just as Mr. Baldwin does with Jake...[The film] boasts a clever central premise and an enjoyably self-effacing comic turn by Alec Baldwin.Streep is a vision of mature loveliness, a smart, sexy mom who always knows the right things to say to the kids and how to extricate herself from embarrassing situations.3 stars out of 5 -- Martin flaunts his sensitive side; John Krasinski slyly pinches scenes...but the film belongs to its leads. Both gamely play up their physical flaws while sharing a tingly, tickly chemistry.[T]he actors are consistently expert....And Baldwin, the consummate scene-stealer, goes comic devilry one better by adding a touching human dimension.[A] very grown-up -- and very funny -- love story....[The comedy] manages to be both light on its feet and heavy enough to deliver something of a message.[A] lively romantic comedy....[Meyers] has a knack for subverting the conventions of her genre...
