I don't even know how this movie got any positive ratings. It was quite slow, and not a lot really happened. It took forever for it to finally end, me and my friend were ready to leave halfway through the theatre. It is NOT a comedy. If you are expecting to see a funny movie, this isn't it. It's really about two older people trying to get back their sex life, and it's really awkward to watch. I wanted to see it because I love Steve Carell and Meryl Streep, but I was very disappointed. Do not see it, trust me.

Wonderful about working through problems, shows commitment and loved that there were no gay rights issues. It was just between a man and a woman and counselor. Loved it!

Loved Meryl Streep and Tommie Lee Jones. Who would have thought he could play such a great part. Everyone that has been married 10 years or more should see this movie

Dumbest Movie I've seen in a long time

OK, so as a lady-of-a-certain age I'm supposed to be grateful that we're being presented as sexual beings at all. But this script is so patronizing and exploitative for yuks that I almost wish they didn't bother! Depressingly, many long-term couples do live the way the movie portrays pre-therapy life, but credulity is strained nonetheless-- what did Kay ever see in Arnold in the first place, and why the heck would she work so hard to get him "back?" And the love scenes, even at the end, fully clothed in pajamas? This could have been handled sensitively and in ways celebrating the joy and beauty of sexuality at any age, but this script was too busy making banana jokes. The performances of the three principals were actually quite good-- even Steve Carrell-- but even Meryl Streep can't carry this turkey. I'm embarrassed for her.

Lovey story

A very realistic potrayal of marriage and its trials and tribulations! Meryl Streep couldn't be better ! She has captured so many different roles like a pro. From the mean boss to the meek housewife and the activist. I love this film as sad as it may seem.
