significantsomewhere - 10 January 2023 I made it through 5 boring trite minutes of negativity and hate Five minutes in and I, a child of the baby boomer divorce boom, couldn't handle the anxiety of two grown adults who are so narcissistic and immature they can't pull themselves together long enough to not do further damage to their kids. The movie starts out with the usual tropes - the main characters are rich and successful, Julia's character is at an auction bidding the cost of a middle class house on a painting and George's character is, of course, playing racquetball and doing architect stuff with a hardhat on. Just a few minutes of constant non-clever insults towards each other who both seem like perfectly nice people except for their obvious immaturity and narcissism and the child being in the middle being traumatized and I was done. If you enjoy a bunch of movie tropes you've seen 100 times and enjoy the general anxiety of being around hatred and constant negativity this movie is probably for you. Otherwise it will be a waste of two hours of your life and leave your with a stomach ache.
yvettehns - 3 January 2023 Beautiful nature scenes My husband had one mandate from me on our recent date night...pick a movie with beautiful scenery. So he picked this one...and it did not disappoint. Julia Roberts and George Clooney were a good match as the parents. I laughed my head off as I watched the scene of the parents playing a drinking game with the music of Public Enemy playing in the background. I don't understand why the best friend was in the movie. The character did not add to the movie plot line at all. I thought the last scene in the movie was a bit contrived. Overall, if you are looking for a light, comedic movie, I would recommend this movie.
