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!

Absolutely a superb film...touching, real, heartfelt, funny and poignant. It is a "must see" for adults of any age. The writing is sharp and genuine, depicting the problems in communication and passion that nearly every couple faces sooner or later. The direction is crisp with no phony or over-the-top acting or staging. Meryl Streep is excellent as always and Tommy Lee Jones is convincing and ultimately likeable. I liked it so much that I'm going to buy it when it comes out on DVD.

My husband was a little skeptical about the movie being good, but we both absolutely loved it. It is so true to life, very well written. Both Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones were perfect for their roles. Lots of laughs. Not for kids.

Steve Carrell talent was wasted in this simply boring movie. Could have developed Steve's character so much more. Could have found out at least SOMETHING remotely interesting about the main characters. A couple of chuckles not worth the price of admission. See the last 15minutes when it comes out on DVD.

Great movie. Saw it with my wife and we laughed throughout the entire movie. poignant and funny because it's true. Streep and Jones are outstanding actors. Thought this movie was more for mature (middle age) couples, but saw several young people and teens in the theater. One of the best movies we've seen.
