461th Review: Decent enough script but miscast, the result is meh…
Honestly, we kind of enjoyed this but by the end we were both agreed that this was good for TV but not really up to film standards – our conclusion was that SJP just doesn’t have the presence to pull this off – she’s a good ensemble actress, but on her own, as a star, carrying a film? We just couldn’t make that leap.
The script has some nice wry observations on marriage, career, and parenting but all-in-all this needs more wit and spark, more oomph. Most of the comedy came from the idea of sexual tension between SJP and Brosnan, and that’s just cheap laughs.
This film is aimed firmly at women over 30 who either have to, want to, or who wish they didn’t have to juggle children, career, and life. It is wryly amusing and observant occasionally, but there should be lots and lots more of that, the paucity of observation and the safe boundaries means it fails to create anything other than a very safe film that is mostly trite.
While it is admirable for having good strong female characterizations it fails really to go anywhere with it, and above all, SJP just does little to convince us that she’s a star vehicle.
All in all, OK with a glass of chardonnay, pretty difficult without….
Overall a charming popcorn flick
Wow, these reviewers are harsh on this movie. Very judgmental, much like out of touch mother in laws and mean stay at home moms are on working moms! Which were both portrayed true to life in my experience! Maybe viewers today are so brainwashed by our dominant media culture of bullies and violence that a movie about a main character that says thank you a lot and wins in the end is considered boring.
SPJ’s working mom is sweet and charming, and her life is portrayed realistically. Got a great family and great job, but no time or energy to bake or have sex? Endless lists? Feeling like you’re always letting someone down? Dressed nice but have a stain you didn’t notice until you arrived at work? True. Greg Kinnear, Chistina Hendricks, and Olivia Munn were likable at SPJ’s husband, best friend, and ambivalent co-worker. Hendricks’ single mom and Munn’s sarcastic Momo stood out here among characters whose depth was underwritten.
I will agree with two concerns 1) The voice overs, side comments, and frame freezes were at first funny, but then seemed awkward and inconsistent – I could see why some reviewers weren’t sure exactly what the movie was trying to say. Was it a feminist commentary, a comedy, a romance? Why not all 3? We are a multi-tasking culture after all. While the script did have a rushed and unpolished feel, the scenes’ brevity reflected the fast pace of the character’s world. I had thought maybe SPJ’s and Munn’s character would end up job sharing, which would have shown even more evolution for the characters and SPJ’s employer.
2)When SPJ’s character took the big assignment, the main source of conflict centering the movie, I expected to see more struggle or motivation to explain why she accepted it when she was already missing her kids and feeling overwhelmed. I thought the husband and wife disagreements were realistic but at times underwritten or even missing.
Also, when I saw Jane Curtain first enter the daughter’s birthday party, I had high expectations she would add to the comedy given her SNL background and past portrayal of a single mom in “Kate and Allie” (a great show in the 80s), but her role was minimized which felt like a loss.
I enjoyed this movie….I admit I am in the target audience…and how the main character handled fidelity and finally learned to set boundaries was refreshing instead of the same old clichés. Not deep but overall a fun popcorn movie break with a charming cast.
