Beyond Awful
Verified purchase
The simple fact that this movie "promotes" divorce and "getting back out there" to be "used" for sex at 40 years old, is sickening. Throwing in complete strangers with your children? How in the world could anyone find this movie entertaining or beautiful? Bottom line, if you enjoy movies that glorify divorce and a broken home, then this movie is for you. Let's not kid ourselves here... the "so-called" ridiculous happy ending would not be the case in real life. What's real, is that if you were Reese Witherspoon, your children would be completely screwed up and you would be severely depressed. People destroy themselves and their children because they worship their "feelings", and how they think their lives should be.

I love Reese Witherspoon
Verified purchase
I love Reese Witherspoon, but I don't know what she was thinking when she agreed to do this movie. The acting is awful. The script is awful. The filming is awful. The plot is ridiculous. This is something for Lifetime or Hallmark, not the big screen.

Just Ok...
Verified purchase
I definitely agree with the viewers who said it had a Hallmark movie feel. I always love Reese Witherspoon and Candace Bergen, but there was something really uneven about this movie. Don't get me wrong...I love a good rom com, but the first half definitely was theater quality, and the second half was more of a made-for-TV movie feel.

One thing I have to give the movie credit for was pairing a 40-year-old woman with a younger guy. At first it seemed unrealistic to have these 20somethings fighting over her (and I say that as someone who was single until almost 40 and did date plenty of younger guys). But then I realized part of the reason I felt this was is that we don't see it in movies enough. It is always a Clooney type with a woman two decades younger and no one bats an eye. So hats off to that.

I think in the end it was a great premise, but the execution just didn't feel fresh or unique enough for me to love it.

Very cute movie. I am a romantic comedy fiend - from the black and white classics, through all of Meg Ryan's, Sandra Bullock's, and naturally, also Reese Witherspoon's. (While you Were Sleeping is probably my idea of the perfect romantic comedy- just so you know here I am coming from) This movie is one of the good ones but not one of the best. The cast was excellent. The setting was perfect. The situations were believable. The story line is a little bit light, compared to some other movies, but you do leave the movie feeling good. If you are choosing to stream this movie at night, because you can't sleep, it is an excellent choice.

Was not expecting this
Verified purchase
I love Reese Witherspoon and have seen all of her movies. To be honest, when I saw the previews for "Home Again" I was not that impressed. It looked like cookie-cutter fair so I delayed in watching it. True, the movie is far fetched and doesn't seem like something that could likely happen, except in movies, yet I was taken in by Reese and everyone else in the movie. Well acted, fun, and a good escape for a boring Friday evening.

Spend sometime with these Compelling Actors
Verified purchase
Reese Witherspoon is a compelling, likeable screen presence. All the characters seem very real, if a little Hollywood. It's not a "great movie" but I enjoyed every minute thanks to all the great actors. It's nice to see a movie with a 40 year old woman as the protagonist that isn't a caricature.

Nice way to pass an evening

Nice way to pass an evening. Is it Oscar worthy? Nope. Is it fun with some drivel? Yup. Wish I would have had 3 fabulous men staying in my guest house to help me thru my separation. (:

While this may not be a drama that changes your view of life or your view on a subject, it does hit close to home for all people. At its core, this film examines what makes our lives tick--the relationships we have with others and whom do we call family. Blood does not always equal family because family is the group of individuals who help you become your best self, you force you to look in the mirror and examine your mistakes, and they are the ones who help you through the tough times. Reese Witherspoon plays a mother with two daughters, both who need a guiding male presence in their lives, and who is separated from a husband who may have the best intentions, but little follow through. Enter three young doe-eyed movie industry hopefuls into the messiness of Alice's life. This movie is not fluff. It gives true-life moments that awaken your psyche to examine who are those individuals in your life that make your life a little bit better because they are a part of your family.
