OK this movie was REALLY funny!!! This is definitely a grown folks movie. You would think that one of the 3 major stars would have been the funniest people in the movie. But if John Krasinski (Jim Halpert on The Office) does not get an award from SOMEBODY for best supporting actor in a comedic role it will be a travesty!!! He had me ROLLING!!! Meryl Streep may be type cast in 2009 for the first time in her life having played Julia Child earlier this year and a bakery owner/chef. However, she did an excellent job at the nuturing mother always taking care of everyone before herself. Alec Baldwin played the consumate ******* ex-husband attorney who believes that everyone around him wants things exactly the way he does. It was also nice to NOT see Steve Martin as a bumbling idiot. His charater was nice and intelligent and humorous.

I have a major problem with a movie or any other venue condoning or encouraging either a man or woman cheating on a spouse. One can only hope that the news of the personal lives of the family members of Tiger Woods and others would serve to have everyone understand that adultery is no laughing matter - not for the family members. For all of us who have been directly affected by adultery, there is just nothing funny about this movie.

Fast-paced, hilarious, down-to-earth, and only rated "R" because it's wonderful RAUNCHY! No explicit sex, only the build-up and after-math (quite enough). Deals with a subject (extra-marital affairs, divorce, remarriage, second thoughts, missing one's original family) that a lot of American families deal with daily. Yet this film is uplifting, truth-revealing without shame or guilt, and comforting. My advice -- GO SEE IT B.J. in Scottsdale!

Saw this a couple of hours ago. It was much funnier than I thought it would be. Meryl Streep did a great job! Even Alec Baldwin was even surprisingly funny! Great to see as a couple or by yourself.

AWESOME!!!!!!!!! one of the funniest movie I've seen in a long time. Meryl Streep is so lovable and Alec is funny, witty and gorgeous. Steve Martin isnt in a lot of scenes,but the ones he is in are definately memorable and SO FUNNY. It is a great movie to go to with girlfriends or your husband. its not your typical chic flic, so the guys will laugh too. I have already recommended it to many friends and would see it again.
