Trailer for Nancy Meyers' It's Complicated with Meryl Streep
Universal has debuted the trailer for their big holiday comedy called It's Complicated starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, and John Krasinski. This is, to put it frankly, exactly the kind of movie my parents will love. But maybe I'm just in a bad mood, because this trailer just pisses me off. It's exactly the kind of trite crap that I didn't want to see any more of this year. The other thing that really upsets me about it is that I'm sure the title, It's Complicated, was "inspired" by the relationship options on Facebook (ugh), in an attempt to modernize this in the most ridiculous way. You can do better than that, Universal!

is this one of those 'whole movie in 2 minutes' vids? sure looks like it, so now we dont need to see it

I usually HATE these kinds of movies but I guess it's Alec's charm & my getting older, not their kind of older but still, that makes me not gag. Add Diane Keaton or Richard Gere etc and I would have hurled but not in this case. It's funny how Alec has allowed himself to get off the fit side and is paired easily now with Streep.

I really liked Something's Gotta Give so I am looking forward to this one. I wasn't as pleased with The Holiday, so I hope this is one is more like the earlier film. It's nice to finally see some romance for people over "a certain age".

ugh!............great actors but, this looks like something for the "over 70" crowd. a little too "cutesy" for my tastes.

Definitely give it a go on a Tuesday night. Alec Baldwin doesn't usually disappoint

Since it's Nancy Myers I will watch it, Meryl Streep is a bonus.

Wow, what a cast! "not the greatest time to be feelin' groovy"...hilarious! I hope Mary Kay Place has a large role, she's has been around forever (she used to write episodes of "M*A*S*H ) and has always been a favorite.

Hasn't John Krasinski gone away yet?

I agree with Johnny Neat, if Diane Keaton or Richard Gere were in this it would suck. Howvever, Maybe Alec Bladwin's presence gives it just enough edge to be benign. Meryl Streep and Steve Martin lend a "too cute" vibe to the rest of it, though. - Probably a rental.

Why would anyone say this looks like the worst movie ever? Um hello, some scmuck just greenlit "White Chicks 2". Just sayin.

Looks like a fun, playful look at life for people over 45. What's wrong with that? I'm getting there myself, and I like to think I can go see movies that feature somebody besides 20-somethings and actual dialogue, instead of romantic comedies that are made for men who've never left the junior high gross-out mentality. Thank God Nancy Meyers is making movies.
