Baldwin's character has since remarried a sexy, younger woman, whom he cheated with while married to Streep. But the new wife also cheated on him and got pregnant and now has a five year old, brat named Pedro. The kid is also an excellent actor and really funny. The hot new wife and the child treat Baldwin horribly, so he's disillusioned and miserable. This leads him to believe he's in love with Streep and they have an affair. Complicated? Only a little.
Meryl Streep, Steve Martin, Alex Baldwin and Lake Bell
The supporting cast all turn in stellar performances. The couple has three grown children, one who is married to the delightful John Kaminski from TV's, "The Office." He has a few priceless scenes when he finds out about the affair, but doesn't say anything. Streep has a group of BFF's who are also a riot. Martin and Streep also have a few hysterical scenes where they smoke weed. I laughed out loud - and hard - all the way through this movie and so did the audience.
It's refreshing to see a movie with characters over-50 who are portrayed as sexual beings. Baldwin has a side-splitting scene where he stops breathing for a few minutes and a doctor is called in. Hearing Meryl Streep say, "I like a lotta sperm," is worth the price of admission.
The movie also explores a question many divorced people have in wondering if it could work out after ten years apart.
This movie has it all; impressive cast, excellent story, witty dialogue and a whole lotta fun. I say, go see this movie and you will be thoroughly entertained and leave the theater smiling. Thanks for stopping by today! xoxo
