Parts were funny and Streep is a great actress. However, part were pretty boring and I felt the writing could have kept the humor in it a little more. We're getting older what's not to laugh at

Older couple must see

I really do not know how younger people will relate to this movie. Long-time married people will laugh and sigh, giggle and cry when watching this totally believable film. With that range of emotion can you skip it? I think not! Meryl Streep is well, Meryl Streep, one of the finest actors alive. Tommy Lee Jones is absolutely well cast for the part of Arnold. If it has a weak link it is Steve Carell who does an uninspired run through as the counsellor. Go, buy some popcorn, bring tissues and enjoy.

Definately an old persons movie, but we knew that cause we're old. The movie was billed as a comedy and is far from that overall. There are some very dark moments, and some NC-17 moments also. Not for people who are not able to see and hear some racy sex talk and visuals. The movie was hard hitting, somewhat believable, and has a happy ending. So what more can you ask for $8. Oh, and prepare to shed a tear or two. Just as comparison, we both like the Marigold Hotel 10 times better....have seen that one twice so far !

I love Meryl Streep, Tommy Lee Jones, Steve Carell and Jean Smart. but this movie was terrible. At least it did have a happy ending. Good acting, but depressing storyline. Do not recommend anyone to see it.

See what marriage can really be like!

I didn't expect such a realistic view of a long term marriage! It was really funny in some places, but was heartwarmingly close to reality. I expected more laughts and got more warmth and heart. A great movie! It contains sexual situations that are for very mature audiences!! Anyone under 40 might think it's gross, but it presents the reality of a mature sexual relationship. Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones nailed it! And Steve Carell couldn't have been more realistic as their therapist! Great movie for us Baby Boomers!
