Meryl Streep stars in this contemporary romantic comedy about the complications of being seperated...

It's Complicated
Starring: Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin.

Need to know: It's Complicated is, well... complicated. Written and directed by Nancy Meyers (who also made Something's Gotta Give) the film explores the complications of modern day love stories and puts a romantic twist on the happily-never-after of divorce.

What it's about: During her son's graduation, Jane (Meryl Streep) hooks up with her ex-husband Jake (Alec Baldwin), who's married to a younger woman. While Jane tries to make sense of her messed-up relationship, she begins to realise that maybe there's more to life than her womanising ex-husband, and perhaps that lies in the form of Adam (Steve Martin), the smitten architect.

Best bit: Dozens of laugh out loud moments that will leave your sides hurting. Meryl Streep proves herself as the queen of comedic timing and does her best for girl power by telling women everywhere they can get divorced, grow old and still have it all.

Worst bit: Although Alec Baldwin's performance is legendary, his character Jake left us squirming. And we thought our dad was embarrassing!

Go and see it with: Your mum or your best friend.
