[Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance ~ Rating: 7/10]⤵
This is one of my favourite comedies ever! I remember watching it with my mother when I was younger and recently I was not feeling that joyous, so I thought I'd watched it again. It did the trick actually, I really forgot about everything else for two hours! ❇
The cast is one of the factors that this movie is successful, the other is the script. Streep, Baldwin and Martin make a hilarious love triangle, with very good chemistry and nice comedic lines. We mostly follow Streep, as her character has to decide whether she will return to her ex-husband (Baldwin) or move on with a charming architect (Martin) she met while renovating her house. Also, we cannot forget Krasinski who plays Streep's daughter's fiance and is simply hilarious in his attempts to keep the balance in this family. ❇
Apart from being a comedy, the script allows you to think about divorce and whether a couple can get back together after so many years apart. Whether a couple deserves a second chance or not, or this decision is purely egotistical and not based on true feelings. But, the movie doesn't depress you at all, because it has a sweetness towards the end, thay really creates a cozy feeling to the audience.
