Entertainment Weekly - 12/18/2009
"Streep plays an icon of an accomplished, radiant woman....Baldwin draws on his bank account of viewer love for his brilliant work on NBC's 30 ROCK to play a rich, assertive lawyer..." -- Grade: B-
Box Office - 12/16/2009 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] smart, sophisticated and downright hilarious comedy. Movies don't get any funnier than this -- at least the ones made for thinking adults."
Chicago Sun-Times - 12/23/2009
"There's funny stuff here. We like everybody."
New York Times - 12/25/2009
"Ms. Streep, mugging wildly if winningly, takes this character and makes you love her, just as Mr. Baldwin does with Jake..."
Variety - 12/10/2009
"[The film] boasts a clever central premise and an enjoyably self-effacing comic turn by Alec Baldwin."
Hollywood Reporter - 12/10/2009
"Streep is a vision of mature loveliness, a smart, sexy mom who always knows the right things to say to the kids and how to extricate herself from embarrassing situations."
Total Film - 12/21/2009 3 stars out of 5 -- "Martin flaunts his sensitive side; John Krasinski slyly pinches scenes...but the film belongs to its leads. Both gamely play up their physical flaws while sharing a tingly, tickly chemistry."
Rolling Stone - 01/21/2010
"[T]he actors are consistently expert....And Baldwin, the consummate scene-stealer, goes comic devilry one better by adding a touching human dimension."
Washington Post - 12/25/2009
"[A] very grown-up -- and very funny -- love story....[The comedy] manages to be both light on its feet and heavy enough to deliver something of a message."
Sight and Sound - 03/01/2010
"[A] lively romantic comedy....[Meyers] has a knack for subverting the conventions of her genre..."
Nancy Meyers directs this romantic comedy that stars Oscar-winner Meryl Streep as a woman torn between an architect (Steve Martin) and her philandering ex-husband (Alec Baldwin). IT'S COMPLICATED also features the comic prowess of John Krasinski, Lake Bell, Rita Wilson, and Mary Kay Place.
