Cute, Sweet and Surprisingly Pithy
on October 22, 2013
First off, it's hard not to like any rom-com with Catherine Zeta-Jones and Justin Bartha. What a great match up!! But I think the real gem of the movie isn't just how much you like them, it really is the story itself. Catherine Zeta-Jones is a gutsy mom who catches who husband cheating with her best friend and has to pick up and start life all over as a forty-something mom in NYC. She pulls it off really well. And I like the whole Bartha younger guy thing, falling in love with the older woman in this story. The chemistry between Zeta-Jones and Bartha is delightful. And without giving anything away, I really liked the "growing up" thing that needed to happen and how their story together gets resolved. It is a movie well worth seeing, cute, sweet and in many ways showing how love is something that catches you off guard and doesn't fit a certain mold.
I only gave it 5 stars because it was really good and cute but I wouldn't put it up there with rom-coms like He's Just Not That Into You. But it is really good and sweet and fun.
