Cute movie about marriage.

I got a few chuckles out of this one. Meryl Streep was terrific as the emotionally unfulfilled wife, and Tommy Lee Jones as her miserable husband. I could definitely relate to the mundane rut these two had fallen into over the years, and also how easy it is to take people for granted. Steve Carell was perfect as the deadpan therapist, too.

Not a comedy at all ! But a charming exploration of a human relationship by two veteran actors at the top of their game.

I saw the movie and I had liked it this is based on a true story but not for children to watch this would be for married couples to watch

This movie is a powerful and fun way to re-ignite your relationship with your significant other! I rented it and said to my partner: "Hey Hun, I have a movie for us to watch". Well, lets just say, it work fantastically! ;)

When it says "funny" twice on the box, you have certain expectations, and you will be disappointed. This isn't funny, unless you delight in the suffering of others. And a "feel good comedy"? I'm not sure what that critic was watching but it certainly wasn't this film. Do not bother if you want to watch a comedy. It's a drama, and a mediocre one at that.

Wonderful acting by Streep and Jones. If you are over 50 years old or have parents over 50 years old, then maybe this film is for you. Into all long-term marriages boring repetitiveness and resentments accumulate causing the marriage to become a burden rather than a gift. The film shows the process of one partner wanting something more from a 30 year marriage and seeking help from a marriage counselor. The counselor helps the couple to make the big decision of breaking up or developing breakthroughs to rekindle their love.

not a movie for youngsters, much truth and most of it not happy. Steep and Jones show how good they are as actors and seem effortless in their roles. All the tension of a failed relationship that still has hope of survival.

Dr. Feld: "What about oral sex?" Kay: "I wasn't... I wasn't comfortable with that." Dr. Feld: "Giving or receiving?" Kay: "...Huh?"

"I hate golf. I do. I think it's boring. And watching people talk about it; that's even worse. It's like being married to ESPN or something. And when you eat ranch chips, your breath smells."
